The Four Agreements


A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom, A Toltec Wisdom Book
Toltec Wisdom
don Miguel Ruiz

From the Publisher
According to don Miguel Ruiz, everything we do is based on agreements we have made — agreements with ourselves, with other people, with God, with life. But the most important agreements are the ones we make with ourselves. In these agreements we tell ourselves who we are, how to behave, what is possible, what is impossible. One single agreement is not such a problem, but we have many agreements that come from fear, deplete our energy, and diminish our self-worth. In The Four Agreements, don Miguel reveals the source of self-limiting agreements that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. When we are ready to change these agreements, there are four deceptively simple, yet powerful agreements that we can adopt as guiding principles. 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 Mastery of Love
A Practical Guide to the Art of Relationship, A Toltec Wisdom Book
Toltec Wisdom

From the Publisher:
In The Mastery of Love, don Miguel examines the fear-based beliefs and assumptions that undermine love and lead to suffering and drama in our relationships. Using teachings from the three Toltec Masteries -- Awareness, Transformation, and Love -- as a foundation, he exposes the fallacies and misplaced expectations about love that permeate most relationships. He gracefully shares his wisdom through delightful and engaging stories that clarify each point and bring his message to life. Some of the themes the book explores include the destructive war of control; why “domestication” and the “image of perfection” lead to self-rejection; the dual tracks of fear and love; body needs versus mind needs; and how to finally accept and forgive ourselves and others. This jacketed linen-bound hardcover gift edition features two-color interior printing and a silk ribbon marker.
