Don Jose Ruiz is a messenger of Toltec wisdom, co author of The Fifth Agreement and author of Ripples of Wisdom
Getting to connect with this man with an indescribable joy. All of the guests that have dropped by the podcast have been people who have ideas that can allow us to see more of the truth, more of your truth. As it is said, "The truth shall set you free". Don Jose Ruiz and his family exemplify the message of The Reconnected Human. Life, Love, Truth. Jose Ruiz is teacher of the ancient Toltec wisdom and the author of The Fifth Agreement, along with his father don Miguel Ruiz, the bestselling author of The Four Agreements. Jose also has a new book out titled Ripples of Wisdom. It is understood in the Toltec tradition that we as humans, create our reality. This process will be altered by the beliefs or agreements that we hold to be true about our reality and ourselves. The Four Agreements and Fifth Agreement are tools to be used to break self defeating beliefs and to use our power to create the life of our dreams.
The agreements are as follows:
The First Agreement: Be Impeccable with your word
The Second Agreement: Don't take anything personally
The Third Agreement: Don't make assumptions
The Fourth Agreement: Always do your best
The Fifth Agreement: Be skeptical but learn to listen
At first glance you may notice that these are common sense and you would be right. The power of these agreements lie in the application. The result of mastery is the ability to love unconditionally as a result of unwavering love in Self. This is just a piece of what don Jose Ruiz uses to inspire us to see the infinite amount of love each and every one of us is full of. We as humans pass along our wisdom of experience through the art of story, don Jose is no different. He is a true storyteller and one of my personal favorites. Extraordinary revelations are held possible in stories and storytellers like don Jose help to inspire us to see these. I am grateful to have recently gotten to meet the family at one of their gatherings. If you get a chance to attend one of their events I highly recommended it. If you do, get ready to face your fears ;) Thanks to all you guys who listen and support the podcast, we love you. I hope you can get a fraction of the joy listening to, as I did talking with don Jose Ruiz.
