To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
If you will read, think, and write, you can use the instructions in this book to actually help you escape self condemning thoughts you agreed with earlier in life. It is a workbook. It is work. It is worth the effort. The smallest glimmer of truth will help to push back the darkness.
This is a very good Companion book, mostly for the ones who have just gotten into implementing the Four Agreements into their lives.
The book gives you various exercises, mostly writing exercises, to find out where certain lies come from. They help you gain perspective on what lies you have, and why, and what effect that really do have, and what you actually REALLY want.
I bought this Companion book only after I've been reading (and rereading over 3 times) the Four Agreements, the Mastery of Love and the Voice of Knowledge. I feel I bought this book a bit too late, as a lot of my lies were already destroyed and how I felt about a lot of them already drastically changed.
Anyhow, still I try doing the exercises with the little lies that still remain. One very interesting exercise is making your 'Book of Law', a list of all the lies you come across. You are supposed to keep track of all your lies for at least a year, and write them down.
This book will, in my opinion, very much help the ones who just started out fighting the Liar and Judge, or who have trouble overcoming their lies.
I've just finished the last of the Four Agreements books, just started the "Companion Book"; nicely organized review of the original four agreements books. Thought provoking and provides a convenient format for creating one's own journal!
I enjoyed this practical matter-of-fact guide to happiness. Of course, many readers may have to redefine the meaning of the work "happiness". Only after you agree with don Miguel Ruiz's idea of happiness, can you fully understand his philosophy. I agree.
Companion book, as one would expect, expands on the book the four agreements and the ideas contained in that book. If you're serious about learning more about Toltec wisdom, this book will pick up where the Four Agreements ends.
