The Four Agreements

The Four Agreements

Don Miguel Ruiz

Overview

We're fascinated by ancient cultures, but we tend to focus on the Spartans, Romans, and Egyptians more than those in South America, even though it is home to several of these old advanced civilizations.

Though we may have heard of the Aztecs, their predecessors, the Toltecs are rarely mentioned, despite their great wisdom and tradition of passing spiritual knowledge from generation to generation.

Don Miguel Ruiz, who turned from science to spirituality after a near-fatal car accident, knows all about the Toltecs. Ruiz's bestselling 1997 book The Four Agreements explores four guiding principles taken from Toltec wisdom:

  1. Be impeccable with your word.
  2. Don't take anything personally.
  3. Don't make assumptions.
  4. Always do your best.

By explaining these principles, Ruiz will help you release yourself from society's strict rules and reach your full potential.

"Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive - the risk to be alive and express what we really are."
