Om Improvement.Title: “The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom”

Author: Don Miguel Ruiz

Rank: 48

Blurb: “Rooted in traditional Toltec wisdom beliefs, four agreements in life are essential steps on the path to personal freedom. As beliefs are transformed through maintaining these agreements, shamanic teacher and healer don Miguel Ruiz asserts lives will ‘become filled with grace, peace, and unconditional love.'”

You Get Enlightenment! And You Get Enlightenment!: “Ruiz’s explanations of Toltec-based cosmography got a major boost recently when publishing pooh-bah Oprah Winfrey mentioned his work on her TV show.”

Visualize Shoving a Pie in the Reviewer’s Face: “Don Miguel Ruiz is known as a nagual, or shaman, of the Toltec tradition. The Toltecs were an ancient group of scientists and artists that was formed to explore and preserve the practices and spiritual knowledge of the ancient ones. It is not a religion, but a way of life that embraces spirit and honors all the spiritual masters who have taught on the earth. Toltec wisdom arises from the same essential unity of truth as other sacred esoteric traditions that are found all over the world.”

Customers Also Bought: “The Fifth Agreement” by Don Miguel Ruiz, because Ancient Wisdom is incomplete without a sequel.

Footnote: The thing about Eastern (or South American or Aboriginal) philosophies is that you can easily find Western equivalents, but they don’t sound as cool.

And I think Sunday’s loser is again Mike Pence. Douchenozzle.

@SanFranLefty: Ah, yes. I bestowed him Saturday’s title on the basis of his whining to a local rag. Now that he’s gone national with his brilliant Everybody Else Does It defense, he may have earned a twofer.

The good news is that you can’t sneak this shit in any more without somebody noticing. The even better news is that the folks doing the loudest hollering are CEOs. That’s what hits a Republican in the nuts.

@nojo: Nothing wins hearts and minds like dollars and cents.
