Title: The Fifth Agreement
Author: Don Miguel Ruiz and Don Jose Ruiz
This book is a recollection of the first four agreements and an introduction of the fifth agreement: The Power of Doubt which encourages us to be skeptical yet, would still listen and judge the authenticity of its premise. This book is about mastering ourselves. That whatever we say to ourselves affects our own judgement of who we really are.
“If you don’t believe lies, they don’t survive your skepticism and they simply disappear.”
It only means that the simplicity and the complexity of our lives lies solely with how we perceive it. We create our life and we have the power to change it. It will never be dependent to another individual.
I just this minute finished reading don Miguel’s new book, The Fifth Agreement, for the first time. It opens with a recap of the first four agreements, which is a little draggy if you’ve read The Four Agreements three times, but which is still worth reading because it is a reminder of the ramifications of the four agreements, and a chance to refocus on them in a new light
