I also found it strange to judge a book about the behavior of a person who claims to have read it and about the elderly who are the ancestors of the author of the book. That is why I did not respond to Cccc`s comment. If the commentator explains why he/she thought the four chords meant that people were behaving ruthlessly and selfishly, I might have received an answer. As it is, I agree with the idea that –Toltec or not — these principles are a healthy way of life and are in harmony with the good practices supported by modern psychology: do Don`s teachings really suggest that there is no good or wrong, we simply do what makes us happy? I did a bit of research on the history of ancient toltec and it wasn`t pretty, not pretty at all. With this example, this book is written for ordinary people, most of whom are in this harassed and hasty society. I cannot say it more concisely or clearly. I met a person who had read this book, well, I tried to meet people again, she crossed me so much speed that I felt like a speed bump on the road, then again, she was a great coffee drinker (Speed Freak), like most people I know anyway today, a player like that. I find that 90% of the people I meet today still have something up their sleeve.
Those of us who are docile, friendly, friendly, calm, calm, respectful, giving, open, affectionate and do not believe in the society “me” that encompasses the world today, we are the truly lonely, the few, and are impossible to follow. We are the ones who, in the good old days, were sitting in a very, very rioting circle, listening very carefully, waiting for our chance to leave and create our own tribe. We`ve been domesticated since day one, when the book removes that right away, if you don`t have a belief system that your people (others) basically use to get out of life what you want. Go back to the original Toltecs, see how they treated their women, now we allow our women to treat our men like that. I`m not pro-feminist all day, but this cycle of hurting each other will never end, while people read books like this, this book reeks people go everywhere to get what you get from the mentality of life, it takes hypocrisy to a new level, but again, we`re now all hypocritical anyway and have been for a while. 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 had at our disposal was the one they lived, which they received most often from their parents, etc. “The Four Accords” left a permanent mark in my life, and I am sure that this book “easy to read” will do the same with you. They said, “I met someone who had read this book… I`m not going to do that.
Apparently, they didn`t get any of that, and that`s why they ran you over. So you haven`t read the book, and you`re able to express such strong opinions about the book? The study of Toltec`s history makes no sense when it comes to understanding this book. It`s like looking back at the old Hindu and deciding that there is nothing to gain from yoga or meditation.
