Reading Now

I finally started another book. It is called The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom, A Toltec Wisdom Book. It echoes and builds upon all the philosophy I’ve been reading in the past couple of years. A quote for my throwers:

“That is why humans resist life. To be alive is the biggest fear humans have. Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive — the risk to be alive and express what we really are. Just being ourselves is the biggest fear of humans. We have learned to live our lives trying to satifsy other people’s demands. We have learned to live by other people’s points of view because of the fear of not being accepted and of not being good enough for someone else.”

Some more…

“We don’t see the truth because we are blind. What blinds us are all those false beliefs we have in our mind….We cannot see who we truly are; we cannot see that we are not [yet] free….The real us is pure love, pure light…”

I had some strange reactions to this book after reading it at the ocean: I wanted to call and tell my boyfriend I loved him, and I inquired about a job as a pizza delivery driver at Domino’s (they weren’t hiring). Read this book, then watch Fight Club again. You will see it in a new light.
