Book {The Four Agreements}

The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom (A Toltec Wisdom Book)

The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom, A Toltec Wisdom Book
 (Don Miguel Ruiz)

"When you honor these four agreements together, there is no way you will live in hell...If you are impeccable with your word, if you don' take anything personally, if you don't make assumptions, if you always do your best, then you are going to have a beautiful life. You are going to control your life one hundred percent."

"In the Four Agreements, don Miguel Ruiz reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, the Four Agreements offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness and love."

The Four Agreements:

1. Be impeccable with your words
2. Don't Take Anything Personally
3. Don't Make Assumptions
4. Always Do Your Best

Favorite Quotes from "The Four Agreements":

"Religions say that hell is a place of  punishment, a place of fear, pain and suffering, a place where fire burns you....Whenever we feel the emotions of anger, jealousy, envy, or hate, we experience a fire burning within us. We are living in a dream of hell." (Chapter: Be Impeccable With Your Words)

"Every human is a magician, and we can either put a spell on someone with our word or we can release someone from a spell. We cast spells all the time with our opinions (Chapter: Be Impeccable With Your Words)

" ' You are not here to sacrifice your joy or your life.You are here to live, to be happy, and to love. If you can do your best in two hours of meditation, but you spend eight hours instead, you will grow tired, miss the point, and won't enjoy your life. Do your best, and perhaps you will learn that no matter how long you meditate, you can live, love, and be happy"
(Chapter: Do Your Best)
