img00738.jpg Last night I got to meet Don Miguel Ruiz, author of The Four Agreements and Toltec Wisdom expert. He’s a gentle, sweet soul speaking what he calls just plain common sense. He told me about his next book, The Fifth Agreement. What is The Fifth Agreement? “Be skeptical of everything (even yourself) but learn to listen.” We talked for maybe thirty minutes about life, the brain, meaning, the ego, and more. He’s also working on a book about psychology, saying we’re still influenced by Freud, which is outdated and incorrect. The photo is of Don Miguel and myself, taken by his son. Most of the conversation was filmed, and will be on YouTube soon. If you haven’t read his book, check it out at or of course your local book store.

    I always think how magical your life has become…but your books also reveal your heart aches.
    Thanks for your courage to share everything and the courage to accept all the wonderful things the Universe has provided for you. Your smile is hypnotic!

    I love all of Don Miguels books, I’ve even bought extra copies to lend out so I don’t have to part with mine. I believe that the Four agreements should be compulsary in schools and kids should read it by their 14th birthday. So glad you are both on the same vibe.
