In The Four Agreements, Mexican shaman Miquel Ruiz built his teachings around four agreements: be impeccable with your word; don't take anything personally; don't make assumptions; always do your best. Now Ruiz offers readers a companion guide, making practical mysticism out of the ancient Toltec tradition. On the one hand this is an eloquent introduction to Toltec teachings, offering a fascinating discussion of how one's life is a dream (and a dream that's often dictated by others) and how "domestication" is the root of human suffering. On the other hand don Miquel has also written a Toltec self-help book, offering specific tools, exercises, and suggestions to help readers live their own dreams, become more attentive, and make conscious agreements with themselves. For readers who feel aligned with the Toltec tradition, this will certainly be a powerful ally as they begin the dream of transformation. --Gail Hudson

It is a book that will transform the way you think about yourself. It will show you that you are not a failure as a human, only that you have been "programmed" to think of yourself as not good enough, not worthy enough, not lovable and its all trash. No one can be perfect and we are our own worst judge.
We are all reflections of what other people have told us we are...our parents, our sisters and brothers...but they see us though their own views and not the real us. And of course we do it to others.
We must reclaim the innocents we were born with and de-program our hurtful thoughts about ourselves. He calls it the Parasite which eats away at our hope and happiness.
He also gives you ways to stop the "Drama's" in your life. Do you know how much Gossip hurts other and yourself. Do you know you gossip about yourself to others and they may and can use it to hurt you. Please if you want to feel in control of your happiness buy "The Four Agreements" and "The Four Agreements Companion" book.
This book has made me feel so much better about myself. I am leaning not to gossip or take things personally or assume any thing. We spend too much time thinking others are mad at us or hate us when they probably have no such thoughts..we just assume if someone doesn't say "hi" to us one day we are at fault.
We don't stop and just ask if there is a problem we don't ask for clarification...we just spend hours and hours making ourselves sick with worry that its is something we've done and if we just asked we'd find out it wasn't.
We must and can learn to stop this.
We can learn everyone is living their own "dream" and if they are behaving badly towards us its them not us and to not take it personally. Its hard to explain but Don Miguel Ruiz does it with simple language we can all understand and learn from.
In the Companion book he gives you testimonials on how people have used these four small agreements to change their lives for the better. You can make yourself happy no matter what..just give it a chance you won't reger it.
I read some other experiental and companion books that were much better, for example Teachings of don Carlos or Celestine Prophecy - an experiental guide.
In all these books the diary writing as a method is included too, but in the Four Agreements Companion Book the writing in the diary or notebook is the only method. In very short time it becomes boring.
Maybe if it was not a book of Miguel Ruiz I would grade it with greater mark, but because Ruiz is so briliant writer, I'll give 3 to this book.
My opinion is that last part of Four Agreements, last part of Mastery of Love and the book Beyond the Fear are much better experiental guides for Miguels teachings.
If you are in business, especially sales, this book will help you tremendously. In fact, if I were doing sales training, I would use this book, because the four agreements are probably a good summary of how to conduct a business relationship for mutual profit and for mutual respect. Brilliant!
If we can commit to following them every day, the world would definitely be a better place.
It has been four years since I first read The Four Agreements and then The Companion Book and I still have to remind myself of the lessons. It takes diligence and commitment to lead the Toltec way of life and The Companion Book can help you uncover and overcome the obstacles in your path.
Just like The Four Agreements, I have recommended this book to anyone who likes to discuss favorite reads and have given The Companion Book as a gift. However, I rarely part with my own copy because I refer to it so regularly. The message of this story strikes me in a slightly new way every time I pick it up.
Don't pass up this opportunity to navigate your unique path through this maze of life.
Also recommended: Rat Race Relaxer: Your Potential & The Maze of Life by JoAnna Carey; Mastery of Love by Don Miguel Ruiz
When we learn to love ourselves and live from our authentic selves, our actions toward others are naturally loving and respectful. This is because our authentic self is love. Don Miguel writes about releasing the illusions of non-serving beliefs which have nothing to do with the truth of who we are in this moment. This frees us up to enjoy our lives and offers great creative power. Give yourself the gift of this book and allow yourself to experience how great life can be.
