The Fifth Agreement: A Toltec Wisdom & Love interview with Don Miguel Ruiz

Don Miguel Ruiz, international best selling author of The Four agreements shares here with us the Toltec wisdom and his latest book the Fifth agreement.

Spirituality & Divinity

Don Miguel Ruiz was born into a family of healers, and raised in rural Mexico by a curandera (healer) mother and a nagual (shaman) grandfather. Although the family anticipated that Ruiz would embrace their centuries-old legacy of healing and teaching, Ruiz chose to attend medical school and become a surgeon. However, a near-death experience in the early 70s changed his life. Stunned by this experience, he began an intensive practice of self-inquiry; devoting himself to the mastery of the ancient ancestral wisdom. Ruiz, a nagual from the Eagle Knight lineage, is dedicated to sharing his knowledge of the teachings of the ancient Toltec. For more than a decade, he has worked to impart this wisdom to his students through book and audio publications, workshops, and journeys to sacred sites around the world.

Well, i have to admit that ... well, that i don't really know anymore why i would want to write a comment, having listened to the two parts of the - to me.. who else, right? - poignant and deeply thought provoking interview; other than perhaps because i feel like it!

Thank you both for sharing your sheer beauty, elegance and wise messages in this interview and with your efforts...

But what, after hearing such powerful messages, might be the significance of my words when, at their worst they may be merely lies designed, taught, and learned by us in order to uphold a lie of separation, division, and duality, because of fear (the "king" of them all) of committing oneself wholly to Self, to unity, sharing, and oneness - Love?
Or what is their use when, perhaps at their best, these words are merely an agreed-upon, fundamentally relative (and therefore changeable, i.e. non-truth), and steeped-in-habit uttering to express my impressions, to attempt to show gratitude, or to stimulate the thinking process or provoke myself in order to advance my own evolution?

I could go on, just as my mind keeps going on thinking up its infinite ideas :o)))
but i'll draw a momentary conclusion (.. there's a great movie waiting for me to be watched ;) ):
What is the greatest obstacle for us, preventing us to cross the threshold from inspirations to actions? Fastening us in integrity of a wholesomeness which we so desperately seek? As Miguel suggests, i agree that it is fear; ..of being wrong, misunderstood, rejected, lonely, a failure, or judged.
In the battle to overcome this greatest _and_ trickiest of warriors, to which we have assigned the name Fear, this interview inspired me to look at, what i believe could well be, its most harmful weapon: the poisonous arrow of doubt; the injected poison causes confusions and the hallucinatory illusion of contradictions and divisions, ultimately distracting us and making us loose valuable time as we continue to give these meaning, importance or, in other words, our attention! Precious attention! Where are you now?? Yes - i do mean YOU! And Bang!!!
There goes another blow against the Godliness that is I, against the Oneness that is I, against faith and conviction in and of Love - or better, that undeniable, incredibly powerful sense, attached to that unfathomable word, which no one has yet been able to define by its title - Love! Nor will ever anyone define it with words, for it defies our Alef Beth (our alphabet).

So, if you felt anything at all by reading this (as well as by listening to the interview), great! Move on in whatever direction your own heart dictates. If not, no worries!

After all, i only talked my own walk in order to walk my own talk :o)

ps - Lilou, eh eh.. i apologize for this inspirational outburst, but before this becomes a habit i go buy a note-block ;o) )

I will share the advice given to my self once, when broken hearted hearing of the Toltec said, "and what about the heart? What does any of this do for my heart aka love?" I was given, "the heart and love will follow, will catch up" I found this to be
