Excellent book and a fast read. I read the Four Agreements companion book as well but lost interest in it.

There is also a Fifth Agreement.

"Don Miguel Ruiz's son, Don Jose Ruiz, has subsequently released a sequel with his father, The Fifth Agreement, which adds a further agreement." 5. Be skeptical, but learn to listen.

Yeah this is a good book. I came across it after reading a few Carlos Castenada books. I don't know if they're real but I want to believe.

Maybe selfish, but....if one is fulfilled by helping others, I think that person may be just a good person. Adding positivity to the collective conscious bank yields good returns for all.

Helping you, helps me! It makes me feel good. Helping others feel good and loved makes me feel good and loved. It's selfish you see.

Thank you for posting this!

Weird synchronicity, I've been half heartedly searching "beginning meditation" in the last 2 weeks or so. Nothing I find seems to sit well with me, but my search stems from a foggy, disconnected mind and frustration. This, I don't know, it just fits what I was looking for. Much appreciated!
