An Interview With don Miguel Ruiz Sr. & don Miguel Ruiz Jr.
Omega: How can the second agreement, “Don’t take anything personally,” be useful for us when it comes to family members and friends? don Miguel Jr.: My father taught me that I’m responsible to the tips of my own fingers; I’m not responsible to anyone else. To take things personally is to assume responsibility for someone else’s will. Here’s a story of how my father taught it to me: More

A miracle is a shift in thinking, a shift from fear to love. At first glance that sounds a bit ridiculous. How does shifting a thought cause a miraculous change? And yet it does that exactly. For every thought we think creates form on some level. A simple thought—seemingly trivial or even unimportant—carries within it the power to move mountains. And that is the least it can do. There is no worldly power—no money, no technology, no business or government—that can match in power the power we wield by simply using our minds for the purposes of love. More

Hope has a bad name these days among certain teachers. On the one hand, it seems to suggest wishful thinking that distracts us from a sober assessment of reality and fosters unrealistic expectations. As Nietzsche put it, “Hope is the worst of evils, for it prolongs the torments of man.” Meanwhile, in the language of “spirituality,” hope implies a rejection of the present moment, or perhaps a taint of doubt eroding the creative power of one’s intentions. But let us not be so quick to dismiss this primal element of the human psyche. More

When you look through the eyes, it really is like the window to the soul. You're seeing your partner there. More

The twin mystique, is a term that I’ve coined to describe how people romanticize twinship.

This mystique creates unrealistic expectations regarding how twins should relate to each other. More

How to Generate the Ultimate Renewable Resource: Love
The explosion of technology has really made time speed up. Everybody is practicing multitasking and trying to keep a number of balls in the air. This has taken a real toll on the intimacy of couples, and so couples have to consciously learn and practice how to stop, slow down, and give each other undivided attention. When you are generating love, love becomes the ultimate renewable resource. —Richard Borofsky and Antra Kalnins Borofsky More
