Considering the huge challenges and difficulties facing the world in the present day, not to mention the personal anxiety that some people are now experiencing, I thought it would be a good idea to share with you the following four steps, or more-so, four agreements taken from the book The Four Agreements: Practical Guide to Personal Freedom written by Don Miguel Ruiz.
Rooted in traditional Toltec wisdom beliefs, four agreements in life are essential steps on the path to personal freedom.
The Toltec culture created these simple precepts of wisdom for the people to adopt daily towards helping them to liberate the mind from ignorance, improve relationships and avoid any self-imposed difficulties.
Ultimately, the agreements provided guidance for one to negotiate life with a more wise, practical and common sense approach. The Toltec perhaps hoped that these precepts would not only benefit the individual in their lifetime but would also produce peace and harmony within the community as a whole.
However, there is nothing stopping the rest of us, in these uncertain times, learning something of worth from these agreements, and perhaps adopting them for the betterment of our own lives and securing a more wiser, peaceful and stress-free future globally.
