The Four Agreements Martin Roth Letra

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 allows us to perceive things in a linear way. When we go to sleep, we don`t have the frame, and the dream tends to change constantly. People dream all the time. Before we were born, people created before us a great outdoor dream that we will call the dream of society or the dream of the planet. The dream of the planet is the collective dream of billions of small personal dreams that together create a family dream, a dream of community, a dream of a city, a dream of a country, and finally a dream of all humanity. The dream of the planet encompasses all the rules of society, its beliefs, its laws, its religions, its different cultures and modes of being, its governments, its schools, its social events and its festivals. We are born with the ability to learn to dream, and the people who live before us teach us to dream, how society dreams. The outer dream has so many rules that when a new man is born, we take the child`s attention and introduce these rules into his mind. The outdoor dream uses mom and dad, schools and religion, to teach us to dream. Attention is the ability to discriminate and focus only on what we want to perceive. We can perceive millions of things at the same time, but with our attention we can keep everything we want to see in the foreground of our minds.

The adults around us caught our attention and made us think by repeating the information. That`s how we learned everything we know. Using our attention, we learned a whole reality, a whole dream. We have learned how to behave in society: what we can believe and what we do not believe; What is acceptable and what is not acceptable; What is good and what is bad; What is beautiful and what is ugly; What`s good and what`s wrong. Everything was already there – all that knowledge, all these rules and all these concepts about how to behave in the world. When you were at school, you sat in a little chair and put your attention to what the teacher taught you. When you went to church, you put your attention to what the priest or pastor told you. It`s the same dynamic with mom and dad, siblings: you`ve all tried to crochet your attention. We also learn to hold the attention of others, and we develop a need for attention that can become very competitive.
