The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom, A Toltec Wisdom Book by Miguel Ruiz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I've read this book probably four times now. I think it is a great book with great philosophies; however, I will always remember that I had highly recommended this book to a group of people, and one of them called me and told me how offended she was by the book (she didn't read more than 15 pages). And, she couldn't believe I would recommend a book that went against her/my/our religious beliefs.
Well ... here's my opinion: Truth is truth, and it is found in many places. Sometimes truth is surrounded by un-truths. It is for us to decide whether it is worth the effort to sort through the information or not.
Whether you agree with everything in this book or not (which, I don't agree with it all) ... it is still a fantastic book. If you learn the basic agreements promoted in this book, you will only benefit:
1. Be Impeccable with Your Word
2. Don't Take Anything Personally
3. Don't Make Assumptions
4. Always do Your Best
I will continue to highly recommend this book. The world would be such a better place if we all did our best to follow these four agreements.

What book are you reading right now? Do you like it?
I am reading Perfect by Ellen Hopkins. And hate that I have to put it down!!!ReplyDelete
PS - we launched today!!!
Well, it sounds like a book I'd like to read! I figure a person who is offended when reading about another religion or philosophy is a person who isn't secure in their own faith. (I could be stepping on toes saying that.)ReplyDelete
I'm reading 'The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes' and loving it!! I wish I had read it sooner.ReplyDelete
