Product Description

Amazon Review

Sit at the foot of a native elder and listen as great wisdom of days long past is passed down. In The Four Agreements shamanic teacher and healer Don Michael Ruiz exposes self-limiting beliefs and presents a simple, yet effective code of personal conduct learned from his Toltec ancestors. Full of grace and simple truth, this handsomely-designed book makes a lovely gift for anyone making an elementary change in life, and reads in a voice like one would expect an indigenous shaman to sound. The four agreements are these: Be impeccable with your word. Don't take anything personally. Don't make assumptions. Always do your best. It's the how and why one should do these things that make The Four Agreements worth reading and remembering. --P Randall Cohan --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Author

How to use these books
The books I write are alive. They were created by an act of power, and contain seeds to transform your life.

The best way to use these tools break old agreements and habits:

1. Read the book once as quickly as possible, to understand the flow and spirit of the book

2. Read the book again, more slowly

3. Do your best to start practicing the steps in the books. Practice makes the master.

4. To facilitate the transformation, share these books with the people that you interact with daily: co-workers, family, friends, lovers. Once they read the book you can help each other, and make an agreement to support each other to create a new dream of communication based in love, rather than fear. Then the drama in your life will stop right away. Create groups to support each other and help each other live these new principles, and watch your whole life change rapidly. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
"The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz is some of the best money I have ever spent. For such a small book this one could certainly change many more lives that people I'll ever meet in mine. It breaks everything all down and lets your soul be your guide. The four basic agreements are:
1. Be Impeccable With Your Words.
2. Don't Take Anything Personally.
3. Don't Make Assumptions.
4. Always Do Your Best.
You can't break it down much more than that. These basic goals and hopes are wonderfully helpful and a path to making ones life a bit easier.
While, I'm not one for a lot of self-awareness books, self-help, etc....but, I certainly found this one helpful, honest and forceful. It made me take a good look at myself and make some changes in how I plan to proceed from this day. If nothing else, give yourself a chance and read this book. It might be helpful.

Format: Paperback
There's a lot of truth in this small volume, in language that is simple enough for anyone to understand.
Don't skip the introduction (a habit I indulge in sometimes), as it's an explanation of this dream we call life.
Chapter 1 will open your eyes to just how much you've been "domesticated". "Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive and express what we really are".
Chapter 2: The power of language. To be impeccable with one's words, and speak the truth...not just to others, but what is sometimes the hardest, to oneself.
Chapter 3. I love this chapter ! It's about not taking anything personally. "Nothing other people do is because of you. It's because of themselves".
Chapter 4 is about not making assumptions, and the chaos we create when we make them. Chapter 5 is about doing your best...and about becoming a "master of transformation".
Chapter 6: "Breaking old agreements". Breaking free of "domestication". This is another great chapter, one that will challenge you and change you. Chapter 7 is about achieving "heaven on earth", and the book ends with two lovely prayers.
This little book of wisdom in the ancient Toltec tradition will help you find the path of the warrior, and the freedom to be "master of your own dream".

Format: Paperback
Anyone brousing this review who's considering buying this book; I'd ask the following of you;

Imagine that you have permission to be happy and really enjoy your life - that your life is free of internal conflict within yourself and that created by others?

Imagine living your life without the fear of being judged by others? - that you know longer behave fearing how others might judge you?

Imagine letting go of any judgments you have about others and being able to forgive and not feeling the need to be right or make anyone else wrong?

Imagine you no longer fear being rejected and that you no longer have a compulsion to be accepted?

Imagine living without the fear of being loved or the need to be loved?

Imagine loving yourself for just the way you are without the need to live your life through someone else's eyes?

These are the fundamental questions this wonderful book answers via The Four Agreements.

Its a simple yet very profound read as it opens up our thinking and makes us realise how much energy we use and stress we take on in trying to live our lives under the burdons of social conditioning. It makes the point so clearly that its not what happens around us that counts, its how we choose to set our lives up and to live that matters.

Why should we choose to be victims in our own minds and carry around the weight of regret, hoplessness, envy or fear? Why should we shape our actions to constantly get the approval of others? - many who we have never even previously met?

This book has the answers. It makes the point that we aren't afraid to die but we are afraid to live and express ourselves. Its simple and it really drives the point home that we cannot continue to dwell in the past or to live in the future. We must live in the 'Now'

Format: Paperback
<The Four Agreements> is a gem, both in its simplicity and its tremendously powerful message. If you long for heart-centered advice which is easy to understand and follow, this is the book for you. The Four Agreements are wonderful stepping stones to happiness and personal power. Each one reminds us of the ways in which we defeat ourselves by choosing to justify our personal mythologies, or belief systems, even at the cost of our own happiness. The concept of making agreements with yourself emphasises the way in which we can choose to react to our lives in a new way just as, long ago, we made the choices that govern our lives now. We can choose to react to ourselves and our world out of love rather than fear--with openness, rather than judgement--and we will reap all the benefits of that attitude.
What is just as wonderful as the simple yet powerful tools Miguel shares with us is the way in which he shares them. His gentle, story-telling style puts you at ease, and brings you into the dream of love that he lives every day. The agreements Miguel shares can apply to people in many different religious traditions or secular ways of life. Ask yourself: Do you want to be happy? This book exposes the true source of happiness and suffering, and shows how to use that knowledge. If you are trying to make a change, or you feel that something is missing in your life, make sure to read this book!
