Don Miguel Ruiz‘s groundbreaking and seminal work “The Four Agreements” should be required reading by anyone looking to find a better vantage about their lives. The book is astonishingly simple to the point of being almost obvious once comprehended, like words you already had on the tip of your tongue but unable to articulate until the good Don decided to articulate it for you.
It is, in summation, about finding true integrity in your life through the Four Agreements that help connect you to every aspect of your world in one.
It’s a good book regardless of what your religious or spiritual background is. Regardless of your beliefs, some things are simply universal.
From an Amazon review: “Don Miguel Ruiz is known as a nagual, or shaman, of the Toltec tradition. The Toltecs were an ancient group of scientists and artists that was formed to explore and preserve the practices and spiritual knowledge of the ancient ones. It is not a religion, but a way of life that embraces spirit and honors all the spiritual masters who have taught on the earth. Toltec wisdom arises from the same essential unity of truth as other sacred esoteric traditions that are found all over the world.”
To embrace and live each of the Four Agreements is to find yourself experiencing personal freedom–possibly as never before.
The Four Agreements are:
Be Impeccable With Your Words
Don’t Take Anything Personally
Don’t Make Assumptions
Always Do Your Best
