I consistently do my best to practice the Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. I’ve seen that the more I align with them, the more effortless and flowing life becomes. At times I forget. And I am glad this time my favorite author, Sangeeta Bhagwat, has blogged about this to remind me once again the beauty of seeing life through the lens of these agreements. I first learnt it in Nithya Shanti‘s HADAYOLI Joyshop years ago and it has still been my favorite takeaway. I love the fact that it simplifies life so much.
Highly recommend this below read so that even if you cannot get to reading the book, which I myself haven’t read, just knowing and practicing these simple agreements can bring about a beautiful change. Love and Light
Don Miguel Ruiz‘s book “The Four Agreements” is a compact text full of practical wisdom that can transform our lives. I often recommend it as a resource to those wishing to lead a conscious life.
