I have been re-reading a book by don Miguel Ruiz entitled:
The Four Agreements.
I read it a few years ago and felt a shift in my psyche.
(or it could have been bad gas as I’m prone to have)
And ever since I read this book…
I’ve been drawn to the turquoise waters
The green cenotes and ancient ruins of the Rivera Maya…
Specifically Akumal and Tulum…
Both towns south of Cancun.
If you are on a search for inner truth
I highly recommend The Four Agreements.
It’s a quick read, only 138 pages.
And to entice you a bit more…
Here is the copy from the back cover:
“In The Four Agreements, don Miguel Ruiz reveals the source
of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless
suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, the Four Agreements
offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our
lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness and love.”
I don’t know how may of you reading this post today…
Remember my posts from several months back…
When I traveled to Mexico in search of a place…
To have a writer/spiritual retreat.
Well, I am traveling back today on that same journey.
I am also going to be meeting with a new friend who has just returned…
From a don Miguel Ruiz retreat. I can’t wait to hear all about it
For myself personally, and also for research for my own retreat.
Yeah, yeah, I can hear you now, “What about NaNoWrMo?"
I will be writing when I’m gone, but not at breakneck speed.
My word count to date is 22,000.
I’ll just have to play catch-up when I get back.
So until later next week amigos…

Always, Em-Musing
P.S.  Thanks and welcome to all my new followers and
         thanks to all those who comment. I appreciate it. :)
