The Happiness Agreement
Therefore, if we do our best, both in terms of compliance with the four agreements and the steps we are taking around the world, we can really be happy. I first heard the four chords in audiobook form, and then I bought the book of the fifth chord, which is actually the same, only the extra part @tine mentioned. Must read this again, it was a really good and enjoyable book to read In truth, it is not the analysis that is the problem, it is the judgment. It seems that a person is happiest when he can choose for himself what he will do and what he will not do. How many people really do what they really want to do? Things are always modified and modified to adapt, to be accepted, to please him and to satisfy them. We spent our days in fear and tried to abide by certain rules that someone else had set for us. We do not rely on ourselves and our judgment, thus severely limiting our own happiness. Our minds won`t have to do and do things we should be doing! It may be important that we decide what these things are, but most of the time we still live the rules of acceptance of another. Don`t you love and admire people who do what they want to do and aren`t ashamed of it? Happy is the man who does not condemn himself for the things he enjoys! In fact, the man is happy…. Have you ever been absorbed in something like work and realized how good you felt after that? In general, the more focused you are in the present moment and what you are doing right now, the better you feel. In these moments of ecstasy and happiness, you don`t need to turn on your mind monitor to verify that your happiness is ready.
It`s simple and you have the pleasure of enjoying it. The person is already good enough that they don`t need to post comments that make others look bad to make themselves look better. When a person «never takes anything personally,» they accept that other people`s comments — that the person is too «fat,» «ugly,» or «stupid» — are not true, they only reflect other people`s need to judge. The person already accepts himself as he is, so that the judgments of other people are irrelevant.. . . .
