APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Don Miguel Ruiz’s celebrated guide to personal freedom is an inspiring, motivating read. Grounding philosophical concepts in concrete, real-world situations, The Four Agreements explores the benefits of being impeccable with your word, not taking anything personally, not making assumptions, and always doing your best. The clear and concise chapters allow us to really sit with these principles...and then turn them into direct, immediate action.
With more than 2.7 million copies of his The Four Agreements sold, Ruiz returns to readers with a new volume that presents his latest thoughts on the ways and means of inner knowledge and healing. Written in the first person with frequent apostrophic addresses ("You need to challenge every belief that you use to judge yourself, to reject yourself, to make yourself little"), the book moves gracefully and anecdotally from"Adam and Eve: The Story from a Different Point of View" to"The Tree of Life: The Story Comes Full Circle," with 10 chapters in between, including"The Lie of Our Imperfection," a chapter that covers"emotional pain as a symptom of abuse" and one on"Writing Our Story with Love," with frequent stops for"Points to Ponder." For Ruiz, life can be a matter of storytelling, to ourselves and to others. His reflections on the process of how people tell these stories, and how they can change their narratives, draw on the lore of his native Mexico and feel both centered and earned.
The Four Agreements
I read this book when it was first published. I bought copies later for my family and friends. One special friend was my mentor and hypnotherapist. He loved this book so much that he made it required reading for all of his clients. I can't say enough good about the principles in this book. Assumptions "used to be" my thing and whoever knew what sorrow I was creating in my own life. This little book has helped me immeasurably and I thank the author and suggest it be read, learned, practiced and read again.
changed my life forever
amazing, simple, effective. everyone should read this
I remember reading this book when it first came out and now that I have taken the time to immerse myself again in its wisdom, I am grateful for having these Toltec Teachings widen my spiritual understanding.
This book is a pleasure to read and work with on a daily basis. I recommend to anyone to take the time to read and apply this in their daily living. They will discover so many Blessings of Remembrance and become self-empowered again.
