the four agreements: a toltec wisdom book

chapter 6.
the toltec path to freedom: breaking old agreements

'the problem with most people is that they live their lives and never discover that the judge and the victim rule their mind, and therefore they don't have a chance to be free. the first step toward personal freedom is awareness. we need to be aware that we are not free in order to be free. we need to be aware of what the problem is in order to solve the problem.' p.98

'if you are not aware, there is nothing to change. your life is the manifestation of your dream; it is an art. and you can change your life anytime if you aren't enjoying the dream.' p.99

'you are no longer innocent. when you were a child this was not true; you didn't have a choice. but you are no longer a child. now it's up to you to choose what to believe and what not to believe. you can choose to believe in anything, and that includes believing in yourself.' p.106

'you need to go step by step and be patient with yourself because this is a slow process. you cannot expect to break the domestication in one day.' p.109

'if we allow our emotions to deplete our energy, we have no energy to change our life or to give to others.' p.111
