The Four Agreements: Part 4

Good day friends,

Over the next few weeks, I am reading, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz, and just give you a summary of what I read and how I understand it. I am just an ordinary person, and I find it interesting how different people see the world. This is not based on any typical religion. I hope you find it as interesting as I did. Please keep an open mind.

Domestication and the Dream of the Planet: Part 2

“Attention is the ability we have to discriminate and to focus only on that which we want to perceive.”

The Four Agreements by Don Migual Ruiz

Through repetition, the people hooked our attention and put information into our minds. By paying attention, we learned how to behave. What to believe and what not to. We have learned what is acceptable and what is not. What is good and bad. What is beautiful and what is ugly. We also learned the difference between right and wrong.

Everywhere we go, we listen to what the people are teaching us. The same happens in the family dynamic. Mom, Dad, brothers, and sisters are all trying to get your attention. We also learn how to get attention from other humans. We also become very competitive. Children seek the attention of their parents, teachers, and friends. The need for attention becomes very strong, and it never stops.

My thoughts on the above.

We are like sponges. We gather information in school, at Church, from our parents and friends. In the modern age we are also hooked by Television, Social Media and the Internet. We then decide what is acceptable for us. Every person has his or her own perception.

Children will do different things to get attention. They love the praise they get. Some parents even award their children with gifts or money. Others will resort to something wrong to get attention.

We as humans are very competitive and we would hurt others just to get noticed.

With all my heart, thank you for your continued support.

Have a Blessed day.
