I hope that these agreements will give you a greater sense of peace in times of stress or despair. Keep them in mind in everyday life and hopefully you`ll find more lightness in your life, even if you walk from the carpet. We make pacts or agreements with ourselves to improve our life or our way of life and even our yoga practice. Things like… This agreement is fairly transparent, but from a different point of view, in the above agreement. This is perhaps the most misunderstood thing of all agreements, because the idea of the spirit of the “best” often has nothing to do with our true abilities, but a mixture of the voices of parents, teachers and peers, which we have somehow internalized to protect ourselves. We often understand “the best” by confronting others or measuring our abilities according to an unrealistic expectation. Leanne, reading this book, has been on my “list” for years! Thank you for taking the time to summarize these agreements to live on and since our mats… After Mala Yoga, yoga should only be learned under the guidance of a Guruer who knows the yogic sciences and is experienced in practice. In October 2017, while I was in my yoga teacher training, I realized that these four chords also have a place in my yoga practice. I present them here, not necessarily in the initial order! This agreement has special significance for those of us who teach yoga. If we give too much or insignificant clues or worse, clues that have no basis in our own feeling, we are not in Orientation with our yoga.
This is not to say that we cannot be metaphorical or poetic. But is what we say rooted in both our experience and our knowledge? Our best will not look like someone else`s, and it can change day by day. It will be influenced by the fatigue or stress or hunger we have. This chord is perhaps one of the most important for our yoga practice, because it reminds us, if taken correctly, that taking and aspiration have nothing to do with yoga, while reminding us that sometimes the path to the height is a more difficult path, but it is always the one to follow. Finally, if we slip or act in a way that is not in line with our principles, this agreement reminds us that we have reached the agreement to do our best, so it is not necessary to judge ourselves for disorder! We did our best! Great sequence! I love the idea of merging the four chords with yin yoga. Thank you so much for the publication! Let`s open them up a little bit. Well, if you`re a ballpoint pen reader, as I often am, you can miss this sentence because you have the quick list in fat and you`re good to go and process, then go buy this book! If you stayed with me, you will find below a brief summary of each of these agreements and my reflection on Don Miguel Ruiz`The Four Accords written in the style of “Leanne”. You may practice yoga three or four times a week, or even every day. When you`re in class with this teacher you can`t get enough of, you feel like you`re on top of the world. You can feel your true self shining every day more and more, and your body and mind feel healthier than ever! This feeling is not like the others, but sometimes, when we move from the carpet to the real world, that feeling can quickly fade. It`s not personal to have the body you were born with.
Yes, it`s yours… For now. But it`s not about you. Its structure has been considered for you in this life by something intelligent that the personal mind is perfect. If you have an injury or a disability, it is not a punishment.
