Recently I've stepped up efforts to apply these principles that seem to make so much sense, giving guidance about how we might live in harmony with others. There are plenty of resources to help direct a focus towards working on this. I'm using a meditation video on YouTube to repeatedly reinforce this philosophy and challenge longstanding beliefs. I've also read this book, a follow up from the first volume which introduces the agreements. Each page contains so much reason that it's become my preferred Desert Island reading.
The book expands on the original volume and again interweaves stories from Don Miguel Ruiz's own extraordinary life. I think that what has grabbed me the most is the metaphor that we are all artists creating our own picture that is an expression of our inner spirit. Our own perspective is individualistic and does not match that of anyone else. Once we grasp this we can better embrace and understand individual difference and go about painting a masterpiece that is concordant what our inner self needs to nurture itself and grow.
