The Four Agreements

abstract: January is a time for renewal and self-examination. If you don't think you need to do this from time to time, you are mistaken. We go along in life taking care of pressing details: family obligations, work commitments, chores and projects, and we tend to neglect our personal well-being. We are like a root-bound plant in a pot. When the seed is planted the nutrients are plentiful, the soil soft, the plant has room to grow and thrive. As the soil nutrients deplete and the root fibers tangle, the plant chokes. This is where The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom, A Toltec Wisdom Book written by Don Miguel Ruiz can help you. The slim hand-sized volume has been published by a number of entities and sells out with each reprint - a good sign that people have found the advice useful!

And what are the Toltec tidbits? They're simple:

  1. Be Impeccable With Your Word
  2. Don't Take Anything Personally
  3. Don't Make Assumptions
  4. Always Do Your Best

Read on for supporting arguments.


January 27, 2011
— &linkCodeThe Toltecs are one of several indigenous peoples populating Mexico. Don Miguel was born into a family of Toltec healers. He initially took a traditional western career path and became a physician taking up a practice in America. A near-death experience in a car crash brought him to a long recovery process. By connecting to healing methods passed down from ancestors, he discovered more than just a spiritual connection, he discovered a system of living life day by day that was worthy of incorporating into his practice and his teachings.

Here is the Kindle version for those who want to download to their digital devices.
