Editorial Reviews Review

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. --P. Randall Cohan


“This book by don Miguel Ruiz, simple yet so powerful, has made a tremendous difference in how I think and act in every encounter.” — Oprah Winfrey

“Don Miguel Ruiz’s book is a roadmap to enlightenment and freedom.” — Deepak Chopra, Author, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

“An inspiring book with many great lessons.” — Wayne Dyer, Author, Real Magic

“In the tradition of Castaneda, Ruiz distills essential Toltec wisdom, expressing with clarity and impeccability what it means for men and women to live as peaceful warriors in the modern world.” — Dan Millman, Author, Way of the Peaceful Warrior

Always the perfect gift

Don Miguel Ruiz is a renowned spiritual teacher and internationally bestselling author of the “Toltec Wisdom Series,” including “The Four Agreements,” “The Mastery of Love,” “The Voice of Knowledge,” “The Four Agreements Companion Book,” “The Circle of Fire,” and “The Fifth Agreement.” The Toltec Wisdom books have sold over 12 million copies in the United States, and have been published in 46 languages worldwide.

don Miguel has spent the past three decades guiding students to personal freedom through his profound insights regarding the nature of human reality. His newest book, THE ACTOR (Ediciones Urano) written with Barbara Emrys was published November 3rd, 2020.

The youngest of thirteen children, don Miguel Ruiz was born in rural Mexico to parents who were healers and practitioners of ancient Toltec traditions. As a young adult, he graduated from medical school in Mexico City and practiced neurosurgery with his older brother in Tijuana. A near-fatal car crash forever changed the direction of his life, however, causing him to leave medicine and to examine the essential truth about life and humanity. With his mother’s help, and through her ancestral teachings, he discovered his own path to awareness, which evolved into a deep understanding of the physical universe and the virtual world of the mind.

Combining Toltec mythology and scientific perspectives, don Miguel has been able to merge ancient wisdom with modern physics and practical common-sense, forging a new philosophy for seekers of truth and personal authenticity. His landmark bestselling book, The Four Agreements, contains practical steps for long-term, personal transformation and has been read by millions around the world.

First published in 1997, The Four Agreements has since sold over nine million copies in the United States and seven million worldwide. It has been translated into 46 languages, appeared on the New York Times bestseller for nearly ten years, and was the 36th bestselling book of the decade. Don Miguel is also the author of The Mastery of Love, The Voice of Knowledge, Prayers, and the New York Times bestseller, The Fifth Agreement, a collaboration with his son, don José Ruiz. Each of his books are international bestsellers.

The wisdom don Miguel has brought to the world has earned him respect around the globe. He has dedicated his life to sharing his message through practical concepts in order to promote transformation and ultimately change lives for the better. Don Miguel is the recipient of numerous recognitions, including a U.S. Air Force ‘challenge coin’ engraved with “The Four Agreements.” He is the recipient of an Honorary Degree in Cultural and Social Education from the American Cultural Institute of Mexico, and referenced as a “national treasure” in his native country.

1.0 out of 5 stars DANGEROUS! False! Lies!
By Charlie on July 10, 2020
1. We are not Domesticated animals, we are human beings with a moral compass.

2. You cannot excuse abuse, EVER!

3. You cannot speak cancer into existence with your words or beliefs.

4. No one is perfect or “impeccable”. Sometimes you are to blame! Sometimes you have to judge yourself in order to improve as a human being.

5. Nothing other people do is because of you. It’s because of them. That is a lie. So if your partner decides to divorce you because you cheated on them is that because of them or because of your action?

6. The author says don’t take it personally whatever you feel I know is your problem and not my problem you’re dealing with yourself not with me. I’m sorry but that is classic narcissism that’s what Trump believes.

7. Taking responsibility of your life making a living working supporting a family that is not being domesticated it’s called life. The author talks about suffering the work suffering the action not because they like to but because they feel that they have to. I’m sorry but that’s called life that’s called having a job that’s called supporting a family and we have two days off to relax not to “get drunk because they don’t like themselves“.

8. Humans are not like children we are not wild or free whatever that means as adults we have obligations and responsibilities we are not victims of a cruel domesticated system or programming everyone needs to work to make money and to afford a living

9. The author says don’t take it personally even if you got shot in the head. Wow just wow so I guess I’m going to go ahead and rob a bank and when the cop comes to arrest me I’m going to resist and get shot in the head. I hope I won’t take it personally when I’m dead LOL.

10. The author says that there are multiple voices in your head from another realm and that the voices in your head or information from other realms the author says that you can choose to listen to these voices or not. I’m sorry but this dude is mentally insane. Hearing multiple voices in your head as a mental issue that needs to be addressed.

11. Life is not a dream it’s real you cannot make believe a fake world to live in

12. They author says that in his culture they have no leaders or no followers and to follow your own truth and to believe your own truth. Well I guess it’s time for anarchy everyone!

13. Being a responsible adult doesn’t mean you do not have freedom’s.

14. All humans who are domesticated are sick and had a parasite control your mind and your brain the author says number one we are not animals number two we are not sick and number three there is no parasite that lives in your mind or your brain.

15. The author keeps saying “we are no longer free because of the judge and the victim and the belief system they don’t allow us to be who we really are once our minds are programmed with all that garbage we are no longer happy“ your emotions are human and we have to deal with our emotions there is a system that we live in that’s just a reality it’s not a dream or make believe he calls all of this garbage so if your belief system in your life is just garbage what’s the alternative??

16. The author says there is a fog in your mind we are all dreaming all of the time and that awareness will transform your dreams awareness of my belief system causes drama in my life what I believe is not real so then I can begin to change i. So number one there is not a fog in my mind number two we are not dreaming all the time we are literally a week and living in a real world number three I am aware of what I believe in my belief system and it does not cause me drama it actually causes me peace and stability and a peace of mind my belief system translates into real life that’s it’s real it’s not fake.

17. The author says that fear is a mental illness fear is not a disease it is a natural human feeling anger and hate and the sadness patrol is not a mental illness they are human feelings that we have to deal with on a daily basis and they are part of us they are not a disease or a parasite.

18. The author says to surrender to the angel of death knowing that the parasite will die we will be resurrected like a child to be free and wild to break our domestication to be free and to heal our minds. I’m sorry but this is a bunch of garbage that makes absolutely no sense at all!!!

19. The author tells you to close your eyes and to imagine and believe or make up a world where love is coming out of trees and other people I’m sorry but to make up an imaginary world does it make it real that’s called being delusional!

20. Your life should not revolve around your ego

21. The author says imagine living without The fear of loving and not being loved not afraid to be rejected or not to be excepted. I’m sorry but being loved and being rejected and being excepted as part of humanity it is part of our feeling you cannot just cut off those parts of you and pretend to be some type of robot you cannot cut off your emotions emotions are part of you as a human and have to be dealt with in a positive way.

Before you buy this book I would seriously consider reading two articles the first is called the Darkside of the four agreements by Bobby Wood and also revisiting the four agreements maybe you should take it personally by Helen Belaunde.

I have to personally say that I found this book very deceiving very dangerous full of lies and write down extreme and me being a Buddhist just could not accept this book
