The Four Agreements of the Toltecs of Mexico
THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO, THE TOLTEC WERE known throughout
southern Mexico as “women and men of knowledge.” Anthropologists have
spoken of the Toltec as a nation or a race, but, in fact, the Toltec were scientists
and artists who formed a society to explore and conserve the spiritual
knowledge and practices of the ancient ones. They came together as masters
(naguals) and students at Teotihuacan, the ancient city of pyramids outside
Mexico City known as the place where “Man Becomes God.”
Over the millennia, the naguals were forced to conceal the ancestral wisdom
and maintain its existence in obscurity. European conquest, coupled with
rampant misuse of personal power by a few of the apprentices, made it
necessary to shield the knowledge from those who were not prepared to use it
wisely or who might intentionally misuse it for personal gain.
Fortunately, the esoteric Toltec knowledge was embodied and passed on
through generations by different lineages of naguals. Though it remained veiled
in secrecy for hundreds of years, ancient prophecies foretold the coming of an
age when it would be necessary to return the wisdom to the people. Now, don
Miguel Ruiz, a nagual from the Eagle Knight lineage, has been guided to share
with us the powerful teachings of the Toltec.
Toltec knowledge arises from the same essential unity of truth as all the
sacred esoteric traditions found around the world. Though it is not a religion, it
honors all the spiritual masters who have taught on the earth. While it does
embrace spirit, it is most accurately described as a way of life, distinguished
by the ready accessibility of happiness and love.
