My mom gave me The Four Agreements, then I bought The Mastery of Love, and still need to read The Fifth Agreement. I can, obviously, only comment on the first two books. They are a fast read in the sense they are short and font is fairly big, but it takes longer to really digest the information. I should make the time to read them again because it allows you to slow down your mind in a fast moving world. You have to be aware of your surroundings for survival, but not everything is a competition in life. It will help you reset, refocus, if you will.
The Four Agreements offers a way to get outside of your head, gain insight about yourself and others, and find the things that make you happy in life so you are living a sustainable, positive life. With all the doing and going, this book isn’t going to solve all your problems. I saw it a stepping stone to make your life a little easier, at least mentally. While you might not agree with all of his philosophy, I do recommend it.
The Mastery of Love focuses on the inner workings of relationships, including your relationship with yourself. They are complex for most of us and sometimes bitterly so and not just romantically. You will not find easy fixes in this book either, but you will gain knowledge and perspective if you read it. This is all I have to say about this author and his books. Check out the links below to learn more or buy them on Amazon. I know I look forward to reading The Fifth Agreement this year.
Happy Reading Everyone!!!
