When most self-improvement books give you almost hundreds of principles to follow in order to reach your goals, Don Miguel Ruiz gives us only four. Even though few in numbers, the principles, called agreements, are very powerful tools on our journey towards becoming an autonomous person who is free from social programming.
His teachings are based on the tradition of the Toltec, an old southern Mexican tribe of scientists and artists.
Besides giving us these four guidelines, he also shares his ideas on how our world works. Even if you skip all the parts where Miguel Ruiz elaborates on his view of society, you will still leave with great tools for your everyday life.
He is a spiritual teacher following the tradition of the Toltec. Besides his lectures, he also leads retreats in order to guide people on their way to personal freedom.
Highlights Don Miguel Ruiz starts the book by explaining how we all live a dream. We all are dreaming right now, with our minds being awake. Everything we see is a dream, including our society, our community, our country and the whole world. What Miguel Ruiz means to say is that all those constructs or ideas are man-made and handed down from the older generation to the younger.
As a child, we learn the rules on how our world works, or rather, on how they tell us it works. We believe it is reality because everybody seems to agree it is reality.
If we go against those agreements, we get punished. If we follow the agreements, we often get rewarded. The worst part is, that over time, we become our own domesticator.
We begin to judge our behaviors based on the rules of society. According to Miguel Ruiz, we are living in some kind of hell on earth. Hell is being described by most religions as a place of never ending punishment. And all we do as humans is to punish ourselves over and over again.
This behavior is based on a deep rooted fear we all have inside of us.of results for "The Four Agreements. Don Miguel Ruiz" The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom (A Toltec Wisdom Book) Nov 7, by Don Miguel Ruiz. Paperback.
