Publisher's Summary

In The Mastery of Love, don Miguel Ruiz illuminates the fear-based beliefs and assumptions that undermine love and lead to suffering and drama in our relationships. Using insightful stories to bring his message to life, Ruiz shows us how to heal our emotional wounds, recover the freedom and joy that are our birthright, and restore the spirit of playfulness that is vital to loving relationships.

In the Toltec tradition, three fundamental masteries guide us to our true nature, which is happiness, freedom, and love.

The first is the Mastery of Awareness. This mastery teaches us to be aware of what we really are. It is the first step toward freedom because we cannot be free if we don't know what we are, or what kind of freedom we are looking for. The Toltecs said, "Let us see ourselves with truth", and they created a mastery just for awareness.

The second is the Mastery of Transformation, which teaches us how to become spiritual warriors and stalk our actions and reactions so we can break free of the knowledge that enslaves us. This mastery shows us how to change the dream of our life by changing our agreements and beliefs.

The Mastery of Love is the result of the first two masteries. From the Toltec perspective, everything is made of Love. Love is Life itself. When we master Love, we align with the Spirit of Life passing through us. We are no longer the body, or the mind, or the soul; we are Love. Then every action we take is an expression of Love, and Love in action can only produce happiness.

When we master Awareness, Transformation, and Love, we reclaim our divinity and become one with God. This is the goal of the Toltec.

An amazing book!

Only equal in comparison to "The Road Less Traveled". I've heard many good reviews of the author of this book and will now download his other two books from this site!
Even if they are merely standing on the shoulders of giants the message is heard loud and clear. Deep profound wisdom. I wish I had read these books many years ago.
Wisdom is one of the best gifts a person can receive.

Life Changing!

Wow! If you are seeing yourself "stuck" in a relationship, this is the book for YOU. Very useful information on how you can identify all your addiction patterns and have a real experience. Let it change your life :-)

Very good

At first this book seemed a bit too dramatic, but once I began to understand the point, the message became very clear and helped me understand the foundation of love its value in my life and to the people that are important to me.

Very good advice on not putting your happiness in anyone's hands. Take responsibility for it.

Slow down!

There is no doubt this is worth listening to, but it goes too fast, not allowing one to really absorb the ideas. Other thought-provoking books are a bit slower-paced like The Power of Now and The Four Agreements. I wish iTunes had a 'slow' option!

Didn't Master It

I've read very few "philosophy of relationships" books, but I can say that this one is interesting. It was a little too new age/free-to-be-you-and-me/I-am the-center-of-the-universe/all-I-can-do-is-accept-you-for-who-you-are for my own tastes. I can't claim that the book changed my life like some other reviewers claim, but it did get me thinking about relationships in a new way. To me that made it worth while.

The reading style is ok. The male and female reader read alternate chapters, which I found a little distracting.

The perfect relationship?

This book is an amazing and succinct description of why there is so much pain and difficulty within relationships and, most importantly, it offers tips on how to change our perception of relationships to work towards healthy happy loving ones.

Powerful

Loved this book, wonderful wisdom into self love and how we love others. Also loved the description of forgiveness, how we absorb emotional poison and how love needs no support, living a life needs support. I leaned so much, this will become another of my all time favorite listens. Excellent narration too. Very clear and invested. I feel very privileged to have come across and heard this book.

I’d recommend this to anyone, but especially people who struggle to “find” love and believe they can only experience love when it comes from another person.

A beautiful and helpful view on life and love

This book actually touched on the points I deep down already knew. But because it is difficult to see these points as a whole, they aren't helpful. By reading this book you learn to see in which way the points are connected and therefor, the points become a whole that is helpful.

Did not like

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A positive approach, a step by step guide and plan to the Mastery of Love, the voices of people who are inspirational, appealing, keen to teach.

Would you ever listen to anything by don Miguel Ruiz again?

Probably not

Would you be willing to try another one of Jill Eikenberry and Michael Tucker ’s performances?

No

What character would you cut from The Mastery of Love?

The narrators

Any additional comments?
