Full of grace and simple truth, this handsomely designed book makes a lovely gift for anyone making an elementary change in life, and it reads in a voice that you would expect from an indigenous shaman.
From Our Editors
Born into a Mexican family of traditional healers, Don Miguel Ruiz never strayed too far from his Toltec roots. He has used the beliefs of his ancestors to guide him through life, and in The Four Agreements, he shares them in a way that lets anyone take advantage of their wisdom. What are these agreements? Be impeccable with your word; say only what you mean; don’t take anything personally and don’t make assumptions. Written in a sweeping style that draws on lore and life, it is certain to show the way to a new kind of inner freedom that will permeate every aspect of your life.
Ruiz has based this book on ancient Toltec wisdom from what is now Mexico. He explains the basis for the formulation of the four agreements, and how we can practice them in our daily lives. They are: 1) be impeccable with your word; 2) don't take anything personally; 3) don't make assumptions; 4) always do your best. After purchasing the book and practicing the four agreements, I have to agree with Oprah that these agreements can be life-altering. They are anything but simple and require a great deal of work, but I think you will agree with me that this book is worth it. Highly recommended.
