Moreover, the different religions, philosophies and mentalities create our knowledge and are born of agreements that we conclude with our fellow human beings on common symbolism. Sometimes it`s too painful because we`ve gained the grief we`ve gained along the way. Yet we can`t run away from agreements.
As we grow up, we will reach agreements between ourselves and ourselves. An agreement is to share certain symbols on which we can communicate, such as language, as we learned in the last summary of the book. You can only understand what you are reading or hearing now because you agree with the writer on the meaning of words. The fourth chord, of course, is added to it – aspire to perfection by making your best results.

No matter if you talk, read or ride a bike, you would be unaware of these things if you hadn`t done them frequently. Therefore, repeated practice is essential if you want to integrate all three chords into your life. If you commit to the five chords: be impeccable with the word; Don`t take anything personally Don`t make assumptions Always do your best and be skeptical, but learn to listen, you will be able to discover who you really are and lead a simpler, happier life.

What is stopping you from addressing these restrictions that you yourself have imposed?
