5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Follow-on Book to "The Four Agreements", March 9, 2010
This review is from: The Fifth Agreement: A Practical Guide to Self-Mastery (A Toltec Wisdom Book) (Hardcover)
This is a wonderful book. Although there is some repeat of information from Ruiz's book "The Four Agreements," there is also a lot of new and very insightful content. In particular, I got the sense that Don Miguel Ruiz's son Don Jose, and the other co-author, Janet Mills, brought another dimension to the work that clearly added value to the book. As such, I highly recommend The Fifth Agreement as a spiritual growth resource. Here's one of my favorite passages:

"Let's say you're living with guilt and shame for a mistake you made ten years ago. The excuse for your suffering is, "I made a terrible mistake," and you're still suffering for something that happened ten years ago, but the truth is you're suffering from something that happened ten seconds ago. You judged yourself again for the same mistake, and of course the big judge says, "You need to be punished." It's simple action-reaction. The action is self-judgment; the reaction is self punishment in the form of guilt and shame. All your life you repeat the same action, hoping to have a different reaction, and it never happens. The only way to change your life is to change the action, and then the reaction will change."

I like that you included a passage to the book. Very helpful, and gives me more of a feel of the book, not to mention motivation to buy it.
Thank you. :)

You're welcome. Sorry for the delay in responding to your comment, the thing is, once I leave a review I normally don't go back to look for comments. It was nice of you to post that comment.
