The Toltec – the Nagual and the Tonal.Introduction – The Smokey Mirror“Human Perception is merely light perceiving light. Matter is a mirror and the world of illusion, the Dream, is justlike smoke which doesn’t allow us to see what we really are.” -xviiiI am the Smokey Mirror, because I am looking at myself in all of you, but we don’t recognize each other because ofthe smoke in-between us. That smoke is the Dream, and the mirror is you, the dreamer. – xixChapter 1 – Domestication and the Dream of the Planet.What you are seeing and hearing right now is nothing but a dream. Pg. 1The dream of the planet is the collective dream of billions of smaller, personal dreams, which together create adream of a family, a dream of a community, a dream of a city, a dream of a country, and finally a dream of thewhole humanity. The dream of the planet includes all of society’s rules, its beliefs, its laws, its religions, itsdifferent cultures and ways to be, its governments, schools, social events, and holidays. Pg. 2All the normal tendencies are lost in the process of domestication. The domestication is so strong that at a certainpoint in our lives we no longer need anyone to domesticate us. Pg. 8There is something in our minds that judges everybody and everything, including the weather, the dog, the cat –everything. Pg. 9There is another part of us that receives the judgements, and this part is called the Victim. The Victim carries theblame, the guilt, and the same. Pg. 10The human is the only animal on earth that pays a thousand times for the same mistake. We have a powerfulmemory. But every time we remember, we judge ourselves again, we are guilty again, and we punish ourselvesagain, and again, and again. Pg. 12Your whole mind is a fog which the Toltecs called a mitote (pronounced MIH-TOE’-TAY). Your mind is a dreamwhere a thousand people talk at the same time, and nobody understands each other. Pg. 6Prelude to a New Dream – There are thousands of agreements you have made with yourself, with other people,with your dream of life, with God, with society, with your parents, with your spouse, with your children. But themost important agreements are the ones you made with yourself. Pg. 21You need a very strong will in order to adopt The Four Agreements – but if you can begin to live your life withthese agreements, the transformation in your life will be amazing. Pg. 23Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding is all you see - John LennonBook Review: Four AgreementsPage 2 6Volume 5Issue 7
Chapter 2 – The First Agreement, Be Impeccable with Your Word.The first agreement is the most important one and also the most difficult one to honor. It is so important that withjust this first agreement you will be able to transcend to the level of existence I call heaven on earth. Pg. 25Your word is the power that you have to create. Your word is the gift that comes directly from God. It is throughthe word that you manifest everything. The word is force; it is the power you have to express and communicate,to think, and thereby to create the events in your life. The word is the most powerful tool you have as a human; itis the tool of magic. Pg. 26During our domestication, our parents and siblings gave their opinions about us without even thinking. Webelieved these opinions, like not being good at swimming, or sports, or writing. By hooking our attention, the wordcan enter our mind and change a belief for better or for worse. Pg. 29Impeccability means “without sin.” Impeccable comes from the Latin pecatus, which means “sin.” A sin is anythingthat you do which goes against yourself. When you are impeccable, you take responsibility for your actions, butyou do not judge or blame yourself. Pg. 31Emotional poison was transferred along with the opinions, and we learned this as the normal way tocommunicate. Pg. 38We talk to ourselves constantly and most of the time we say things like, “Oh, I look fat, I look ugly. I’m getting old,I’m losing my hair. I’m stupid, I never understand anything, I will never be good enough, and I’m never going to beperfect.” Pg. 42Chapter 3 The Second Agreement, Don’t Take Anything PersonallyPersonal importance, or taking things personally, is the maximum expression of selfishness because we make theassumption that everything is about “me.” Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves.All people live in their own dream, in their own mind; they are in a completely different world from the one welive in. Pg. 48When you take things personally, then you feel offended, and your reaction is to defend your beliefs and createconflicts. Pg. 50 by taking things personally you set yourself up to suffer for nothing. Humans are addicted to suffering atdifferent levels and to different degrees, and we support each other in maintaining these addictions. Theiraddiction to suffering is nothing but an agreement that is reinforced every day. Pg. 57If someone is not treating you with love and respect, it is a gift if they walk away from you. Pg. 58Someone can intentionally send emotional poison, and if you don’t take it personally, you will not eat it. Pg59When you truly understand this, and refuse to take things personally, you can hardly be hurt by the carelesscomments or actions of others. Pg. 60Book Review: Four AgreementsPage 3 6Volume 5Issue 7
Chapter 4 The Third Agreement, Don’t Make AssumptionsThe problem with making assumptions is that we believe they are truth. Pg. 63. It is always better to ask questionsthan to make an assumption, because assumptions set us up for suffering. Pg. 65In any kind of relationship, we can make the assumption that others know what we think, and we don’t have tosay what we want. Pg. 67. We make the assumption that everyone sees life the way we do. Pg. 69Make sure the communication is clear. If you don’t understand, ask. Have the courage to ask questions until youhave clear as you can be, and even then, do not assume you know all there is to know about a given situation.Also, find your voice to ask for what you want. Everybody has the right to tell you no or yes, but you always haveto right to ask. Likewise, everybody has the right to ask you, and you have the right to say yes or no. Pg. 72Taking the action over and over again strengthens your will, nurtures the seed, and establishes a solid foundationfor the new habit to grow. Pg. 74Chapter 5 The Fourth Agreement, Always Do Your Best the one that allows the other three to become deeply ingrained habits. The fourth agreement is about the actionof the first three: always do your best. But keep in mind that your best is never going to be the same from onemoment to the next. Pg. 75. Everything is alive and changing all the time, so your best will sometimes be highquality, and other times it will not be as good. Pg. 76Doing your best, you are going to live your life intensely. You are going to be productive, you are going to be goodto yourself, because you will be giving yourself to your family, to your community, to everything. Pg. 78Doing your best is taking action because you love it, not because you’re expecting a reward. Pg. 79. If we like whatwe do, if we always do our best, then we are really enjoying life. We are having fun, we don’t get bored, we don’thave frustrations. I did my best. There are no regrets. It is not an easy agreement to keep, but this agreement isreally going to set you free. Pg. 80When you do your best, you learn to accept yourself. Learning from your mistakes means you practice, lookhonestly at the results, and keep practicing. This increases your awareness. Pg. 81. Taking action is being alive. It’staking the risk to go out and express your dream. Pg. 82When you surrender and let go of the past, you allow yourself to be fully alive in the moment. Letting go of thepast means you can enjoy the dream that is happening right now. You were born with the right to e happy, theright to love, to enjoy and to share your love. You have the right to be you. Pg. 84By doing your best, the habits of misusing your word, taking things personally, and making assumptions willbecome weaker and less frequent with time. Pg. 85When you honor the four agreements together the dream of the planet is transformed into your personal dreamof heaven. Pg. 88Book Review: Four AgreementsPage 4 6Volume 5Issue 7
Chapter 6 The Toltec Path to Freedom, Breaking Old AgreementsOur normal human tendency is to enjoy life, to play, to explore, to be happy, and to love. Pg. 95. We are stillchildren, but we have lost of freedom. Pg. 97. The freedom we are looking for is the freedom to be ourselves, toexpress ourselves. Pg. 98. The first step towards personal freedom is awareness. We need to be aware of what theproblem is in order to solve the problem. Pg. 98Three masteries that lead people to become Toltecs: The Mastery of Awareness, the Mastery of Transformation,and the Mastery of Intent. Pg. 100. The freedom we seek is to use our own mind and body, to live our own life,instead of the life of the belief system. Pg. 102.The art of transformation: The Dream of the Second Attention.The process of domestication can be called the art of the first attention because it was how your attention wasused for the first time to create the first dream of your life. Pg. 105 Focus your attention on all those agreements and beliefs and change the agreements with yourself. In doing thisyou are using your attention for the second time. The first step is to become aware of the fog that is in yourmind. Pg. 106. The next step is to develop awareness of all the self-limiting, fear-based beliefs that make youunhappy. Pg. 107The Discipline of the Warrior: Controlling your Own Behavior.We have a dysfunctional dream of the planet and humans are mentally sick with a disease called fear. We mustforgive those we feel have wronged us, not because they deserve to be forgiven, but because we love ourselves somuch we don’t want to keep paying for the injustice. Pg. 114The warrior has awareness. The warrior has control Control over one’s own emotions, control over one’s ownself. To refrain is to hold the emotions and to express them in the right moment, not before, not later. Pg. 117The Initiation of the Dead: Embracing the Angel of Death.We become aware that we can die at any moment: we have just the present to be alive. The truth is that we don’tknow if we are going to die tomorrow. Pg. 118. The angel of death can teach us to live every day as if it is the lastday of our lives, as if there may be no tomorrow. I don’t know if I am going to see you again, so I don’t want tofight with you. Pg. 119Chapter 7 The New Dream, Heaven on EarthThe dream you are living is your creation. It is your perception of reality that you can change at any time. Pg. 123.You can live in a state of grace, the state of bliss, the dream of heaven. Pg. 126The world is very beautiful and very wonderful. Life can be very easy when love is your way of life. Pg. 127. Youcan be loving all the time. This is your choice. Love in action only produces happiness. Happiness is a choice, andso is suffering we have a choice: to suffer our destiny or to enjoy our destiny. What is yours?
