The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom
My 2014 interview with spiritual teacher and author don Miguel Ruiz is by far one of my favorite Truthteller interviews of all time. don Miguel’s power, integrity, and deep message of healing that I believe is so necessary for this time shines through so beautifully. Not to mention, this is the one Truthteller interview where I literally find myself having a spiritual experience in this great teacher’s presence! Needless to say, he is someone who has deeply influenced my life—as well as my awareness that spirituality and the mundane details of one’s day-to-day are not mutually exclusive.
That’s why I can’t say enough about his classic book, The Four Agreements—which I honestly believe is required reading to achieve peace of mind and to consider how our tiniest actions have massive effects on the world around us.
If you’re looking for a life of personal freedom, empowerment, and wisdom (and really, who isn’t?), this book is a fantastic reminder of how our actions and behaviors can create ripple effects in our personal lives and our society.
In traditional Toltec wisdom, there are four agreements in life which are essential steps on the path to personal freedom. These four agreements are very simple, yet very profound:
- Be impeccable with your words.
- Don’t take anything personally.
- Don’t make assumptions.
- Always do your best.
In The Four Agreements, don Miguel Ruiz shows us how to live these four simple yet profound agreements, change the beliefs that have been programmed into us, and embrace a life filled with freedom and happiness. Since its publication, this insightful book has positively influenced people from all corners of the world, including those who consider themselves “spiritual” and those who don’t.
I urge you to get your copy today, as this book is required reading in these fraught times. For more information and to purchase The Four Agreements, click HERE.
