The Four Agreements - A Practical Guide To Personal Freedom
I have been reading some inspiring books while here in India, and I really wanted to share a particular book with you called The Four Agreements, written by Don Miguel Ruiz. I think everyone should read this book, it's full of wonderful lessons that we can all find some positive inspiration from. I love a good self-help book and this is a beautiful tool for personal growth.
It is based on ancient Toltec wisdom, giving us insight into the spiritual knowledge and practises of the ancient ones. It is an enlightening book, teaching us to adopt Four Agreements that can help transform our lives. By regaining our freedom, and breaking any self-limiting beliefs that restrict us from living our life to its full potential, we can live with true meaning, from the heart, with only love and happiness for ourselves and the rest of the world.
Some of my favourite quotes from this book…
"To be Toltec is a way of life. It is a way of life where there are no leaders and no followers, where you have your own truth and live your own truth. A Toltec becomes wise, becomes wild, and becomes free again."
“Whatever life takes away, let it go. When you surrender and let go of the past, you allow yourself to be fully alive in the moment.”
“When you feel good, everything around you is good. When everything around you is great, everything makes you happy. You are loving everything that is around you, because you are loving yourself. Because you like the way you are. Because you are content with you. Because you are happy with your life. You are happy with the movie that you are producing, happy with your agreements with life. You are at peace, and you are happy. You live in that state of bliss where everything is so wonderful, and everything is so beautiful. In that state of bliss you are making love all the time with everything that you perceive.”
“I turned my head to the sky, to the sun, to the stars, and put a little piece of my love in every star, in the moon, in the sun, and they loved me back. And I became one with the moon and the sun and the stars, and my love kept growing and growing. And I put a little piece of my love in every human, and I became one with the whole of humanity. Wherever I go, Whomever I meet, I see myself in their eyes, because I am a part of everything, because I love.“
Thank you to my special friend for buying me this little piece of happiness.
I hope you get a chance to read this, I hope it helps you to see the world a little differently, a little brighter. I hope it will inspire you as it inspired me.
Love and Light always,
