What the Bleep Do We Know is a 2004 film that was applauded by the spiritual and new age community but deeply criticized by the scientific community. I agree the film has flaws and in simplifying some of the concepts may mis-represent the legitimate science behind those concepts… however, it is a movie after all.

The Fifth Agreement by Don Miguel Ruiz (2011) is a followup to his first book The Four Agreements in which Don Miguel breaks down the Shamanic lessons taught to him by his Toltec mother into four simple codes of conduct. While the philosophy is easy to understand it is difficult to practice. Don Miguel suggests allowing yourself to erase all of the false programming from your parents and greater society and replace them with these Four Agreements. 1. Be impeccable with your word. 2. Don’t take anything personally. 3. Don’t make assumptions. 4. Always do your best.
The Fifth Agreement is Be skeptical but learn to listen. This fifth agreement is about discernment. Learning to discern what you will accept and what you will not is an integral part of setting healthy boundaries for yourself and your experience.
Don Miguel Ruiz (1952-) is a Mexican-American Shaman and author. He has helped thousands of people raise themselves out of the American Depression and Anxiety and embrace their authentic selves with his books and his workshops.
