The four agreements also changed my perception of the world. I keep reading it because I usually go back to old habits and self-judgments. So tomorrow, instead of changing my name to Smokey Mirror, I`ll have « Smokey Mirror » tattooed on my body so I can remember loving everything unconditionally and living with the awareness of fog. If we cannot see ourselves in others, it is because there is a wall of fog or smoke between the mirrors. And this smoke is made up of our own convictions and rules imposed by ourselves. We will judge whether someone is acting or behaving differently from us or if we do not understand the beliefs of others. However, in order to open up our world, we must regularly question our belief system. This story helped me understand how we are all connected. In the past, I had heard about the concept of attachment, and we were all one, but I haven`t really accepted it until now. After this awareness, I began to see myself and others differently.
I am entitled to see love in every being. Don Miguel explains that we are photographs and that we are all mirrors. Therefore, the beauty we see in others is a pure reflection of who we are. Hello Jessica, the four chords have also changed my perception of the world, this is my favorite book of all time. Thank you for sharing, blessed. Martin The man in Don Miguel`s story has discovered that these paths are contaminated in the mind by belief systems, fears and expectations — they distort the light that comes from creation. He saw the nature of the dream and the truth about the distortion of his perceptions. He wanted to make sure he would remember what he had learned when we woke up. Then it was called The Smoky Mirror. He had learned that he was a perfect mirror for the Divine. But no one could see this perfect mirror because of the « smoke » that results from the distortion of light.
The stored light of your perceptions distorts the truth of the Divine`s message in the light… like smoke distorts an image in a mirror. He discovered that all that exists is a manifestation of a human being that we call God. It`s all God. When he knew what he really was, he looked around himself and the rest of nature, and he was amazed at what he saw. He saw himself in everything — in every man, in every animal, in every tree, in the water, in the rain, in the clouds, in the earth. In his book The Four Agreements ™ Miguel Ruiz begins with the story of a « man like you and me ». This man dreams in a cave, and in his dream, he sees himself coming out, looking into the starry sky and discovering something very wonderful.

Posted by TACO, The Toltec Apprentice Community Online Thanks for reading and leaving a comment, Martin! He also knew that the dream (the world of illusion formed by our belief system) is exactly like smoke, which does not allow us to see what we really are.
