For Don Miguel Ruiz (Don Miguel Ángel Ruiz) some say “the author of New Age* spiritualist and neo-shamanistic texts”. Whatever some say or however some file him, the fact is that he is raised in Toltec tradition, which doesn’t make him Toltec master by default. It seems he did his best to avoid that, to avoid metaphysics, spirituality, esoterics, but, as I see it, walking on ones “life path” can be walking the straight road or taking detours, yet eventually you come back to the main/straight road, no matter how many detours you take. And those detours are not in vain, even though we make some of them longer to pass, but walking on them, we learn what we need for the rest of our walk on the “straight road”.
Thus Don Miguel had his share of detours and got back on straight path to become, in my opinion, one of the best spiritual teachers nowadays, if not ever.
I do not like stating here facts you can read on any other website, so if you want to learn more about Don Miguel Ruiz here is his website:
The First Don Miguel Ruiz Book I’ve read (still do from time to time)
It’s great how you buy one book and read it over and over again from time to time. For me, that happens only with books about self-help work and Dostoevsky of course.
Same is with Don Miguel’s book “Four Agreements“.
Be Impeccable With Your Word.
Don’t Take Anything Personally.
Don’t Make Assumptions.
Always Do Your Best.
Although I have read all the other books he wrote, this is the one I come back too. Well, I remember one person told me some time ago, when I asked “which book he would recommend for me”, he said, “the book you are ready for will come to you, do not worry”. And he was right. Don Miguel Ruiz’s first book that came to me was “Four Agreements” and that was exactly the book I was ready for, same as the book “You can heal your life” by Louis L. Hay that came to me totally unexpected, but at the perfect moment for me.
The book “Four Agreements” ranks as #13 at Amazon even though the book is published in 1997 – amazing, isn’t it?!
Muahaaaa and shine like the star that you are!
