If we do not make assumptions, we can draw our attention to the truth, not to what we think is the truth. So we see life as it is, not as we want to see it. If we do not believe in our own assumptions, the strength of our faith that we have invested in them is ours. And if we recover all the energy we have invested to make assumptions, we can use that energy to create a new dream: our personal sky. Don`t make any assumptions. If your faith creates deep happiness in you, then I say, keep it. If they cause trouble, if the beliefs of others are different, consciousness can leave you with the choice of what you believe and what you let go. Many of our convictions, our concepts, our agreements were nourished to us as „truth“ when we were young, and we accepted them literally and completely. The beginning of the four chords is about how we were domesticated by our caregivers in a „dream“ of life. The only dream they gave us was the one they lived, which they received most often from their parents, etc.
Making assumptions is all about thinking. We think too much, and thinking leads to assumptions. Thinking „what if?“ can create a huge drama in our lives. Everyone can think a lot, and thinking brings fear. We have no control over all this thought, all the symbols that we distort in our heads. If we stop thinking, we don`t try to explain ourselves anymore, and that prevents us from making assumptions. In the first part of this 2-part video, we learn how the „domestication“ of men and how all the rules and values of our family and society are imposed on us by a system of punishment and reward. As young children, our true nature is to love and be happy, to explore and enjoy life; We are absolutely authentic. But then we learn to be what others think we should, and because it`s not normal that we are who we are, we start pretending we`re not what we`re not. When we are teenagers, we have learned to judge ourselves, to punish ourselves and to reward ourselves after agreements that we have never chosen.
The four agreements help us break self-limitation agreements and replace them with agreements that bring us freedom, happiness and love.
