Agreeing to the Agreements

As I started to share the ideas behind the outline of the Estralarian Mind Meld, and the four major themes that run through it, a friend and mentor of mine reminded me that I may want to have a look at The Four Agreements as a correlation. I had read the book by Don Miguel Ruiz a few years earlier and found the simplicity of it to really resonate with truth. Yet it wasn’t until I had the opportunity to interview his son Don Jose Ruiz last year about The Fifth Agreement that I really started to realize how these truths would play into what I was hoping to speak to.

Based on Toltec wisdom, the Agreements are not a religious paradigm, other than the fact that it is wise to follow them religiously. They are a science of observation, understanding, and correction in order to create the lives we imagine and to live in happiness and harmony. They are as follows:

  1. Be Impeccable With Your Word
  2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
  3. Don’t Make Assumptions
  4. Always Do Your Best
  5. Be Skeptical, But Learn to Listen

Check back throughout the rest of the day as I expand on these agreements and what they mean for you.

How to Survive an Estralarian Mind Meld is a comical foray into philosophical science fiction about how we take the next step into this new Revolution of connection and opportunity. It has been compared to books as varied as Who Moved My Cheese?, The Shack, and The Celestine Prophecy, and has been called a “tale of exploring everyday magic like few others have done,” a “rollicking romp of a book,” and “more than a story… a journey into truth.” Get Your Copy Today!
