The Four Agreements - A Toltec Wisdom Book (Paperback, 10th Anniversary Ed.)


According to don Miguel Ruiz, everything we do is based on agreements we have made - agreements with ourselves, with other people, with God, with life. But the most important agreements are the ones we make with ourselves. In these agreements we tell ourselves who we are, how to behave, what is possible, what is impossible. One single agreement is not such a problem, but we have many agreements that come from fear, deplete our energy, and diminish our self-worth. In The Four Agreements, don Miguel reveals the source of self-limiting agreements that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. When we are ready to change these agreements, there are four deceptively simple, yet powerful agreements that we can adopt as guiding principles. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, the Four Agreements offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love. The Four Agreements are: BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love. DON'T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering. DON'T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life. ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are tired as opposed to well-rested. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret. The Four Agreements sound simple, even simplistic. B

What a short powerful, motivational, inspirational read. As they say...dynamite comes in small packages! I've been following Don Miguel Ruiz for a number of years, been eye-balling his books, yet I never felt drawn to purchase his books just yet. 2021 is the year. I found this little treasure in a local shop and boy was I happy, because this was my sign to get it! Without spoiling the content... the four agreements are explained in such short powerful ways. It's most definitely going to take time for you to absorb and apply the lessons to your own life. However, as soon as you start the process...you'll never look back. This is a book each and every person should have and reread every year just to make sure you're still on track. www . lyranheart . com

I loved this book the first time I read it and I loved and appreciated this book this time again. I chose this book to use for my Topic of Light discussions. Don explains easily and effectively. I liked that this wasn't thick heavy book filled with complicated lessons. Don uses great examples to explain the agreements and the way he explains them is simple and motivating. The agreements are easy to remember and make sense. I covered most my thoughts in the topics. I would recommend this book to anyone needing a great short motivational read.
