Dreaming is the main function of the mind, and the mind dreams 24 hours a day. He dreams when the brain is awake, and he also dreams when the brain sleeps. The difference is that when the brain is awake, there is a material framework that makes things linear. When we go to sleep, we don`t have the frame, and the dream tends to change constantly. His best-known book, The Four Agreements, was published in 1997 and has sold about 10 million times in the United States and has been translated into 46 languages. The book advocates the personal freedom of convictions and agreements we have made with ourselves and with others, which create use and unhappiness in our lives.  It was broadcast on the television show Oprah.  The four chords are: If we see that it is our agreements that dominate our lives and that we do not love the dream of our lives, we must change the chords. When we are finally ready to change our agreements, there will be four very powerful agreements that will help us break the agreements that come from fear and exhaust our energy. All humanity is in search of truth, justice and beauty. We are eternally searching for the truth because we believe only in the lies we have stored in our minds. We seek justice because in the belief system we have, there is no justice.
We are looking for beauty because no matter how beautiful a person is, we do not believe that that person has beauty. We search and continue to search when everything is already in us. There is no truth. Everywhere we turn our heads, all we see is the truth, but with the chords and beliefs we have stored in our minds, we have no eyes for that truth. We don`t see the truth because we`re blind. What blinds us are all these false beliefs that we have in mind. We must be right and hurt others. We trust what we believe and our convictions prepare us for suffering. It`s as if we live in the middle of a fog that doesn`t let us see beyond our own nose. We live in a fog that is not even real. This fog is a dream, your personal dream to live, what you believe, all the concepts you have about who you are, all the agreements you have made with others, with yourself and even with God.
