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 Miguel 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 it reads in a voice that you would expect from an indigenous shaman. 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.

Living Out Your Dreams
The Four Agreements, a Toltec Wisdom Book presents a strong foundation for living a life of your own choosing. All four agreements are sound advice. The third agreement "don't make assumptions" is a potent tool for living in the moment, whereby you leave your past judgments behind and experience life directly, moment to moment. I especially found the fourth agreement "don't take anything personally" to be very freeing. I started to pay attention to how much I was taking other people's words or ways of being personally without investigating where the words or actions were coming from. I found I had more energy and incentive to be responsible for my own words and actions and not for those of others around me.
Another book I highly suggest reading is called "WORKING ON YOURSELF DOESN'T WORK" by Ariel and Shya Kane. While The Four Agreements presents rules or guidelines for living your life, the Kanes present a way of being in your life. Their approach is based on the premise that through listening and simple, non judgmental awareness, you can lead a meaningful and enriching life instantaneously. And it works!

I have read so many books promising joy in my life, yet I have read none so simple and practical as that of the Four Agreements by don Miguel Ruiz. The book is a beautiful instruction guide to achieve a life of freedom and happiness. He teaches four lifestyle commitments, which can transform life into the realization of your own personal dream. Written from his heart, the Four Agreements has made profound changes in my life. What seemed insurmountable challenges became powerful lessons which I was able to embrace with faith and love. What is the dream that you hold for yourself? Allow the magic of don Miguel's wisdom to shift your life into a masterful awareness of all you want for yourself.Become the power that you want in yourlife, realize the opportunites before you and then you can live in a heaven created from the beauty of your own heart. I have given the book to many people, who, only reading it once, have initiated life changes. My personal experience with don Miguel is that no matter how little you are exposed to him, your heart will always be touched. He and his words are the touch of an angel. Treat yourself to a world without limits!
