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.

    "I listened to it over and over"

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

    "food for thought"
    Where does The Mastery of Love rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The content makes you think, and you do learn from it (though it's very black & white)


    What didn’t you like about Jill Eikenberry and Michael Tucker ’s performance?

    Michael's performance is good, but I found Jill's voice very annoying. Wouldn't buy another audio book by this narrator.

    "Mixed Feelings"
    If you could sum up The Mastery of Love in three words, what would they be?

    interesting, thought provoking, depressing


    Would you be willing to try another book from don Miguel Ruiz? Why or why not?

    Yes. I loved The Four Agreements. I'm in a place where I need more tools and practical applications, Mastery of Love was rooted mostly in theory. It's just not that simple to "stop listening to me... stop listening to others.... stop listening to yourself." How exactly do you do this? It would have been nice to have been given tips and exercises to practice changing harmful thinking and behavioral patterns... since essentially we practiced getting this way.


    Have you listened to any of Jill Eikenberry and Michael Tucker ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I really liked Jill's voice. It was engaging and interesting.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    interesting, thought provoking, depressing

    "Inspiring and practical"
    If you could sum up The Mastery of Love in three words, what would they be?

    Inspiring, practical and hopeful


    What other book might you compare The Mastery of Love to and why?

    7 Habits of Highly Effective People also talks about the interaction of man and his environment. For those in 12 Step recovery programs this is great support material.


    Have you listened to any of Jill Eikenberry and Michael Tucker ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have no basis for comparison, but the performances were very good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I can't listen in one sitting, but I looked forward to getting back to it each time I had to stop.

    "Please REDO this audio"

    Please REDO this audio.
    Peter Coyote did such a wonderful job on the other books, it was a disappointment to find these nice people doing a quick version.
    And I mean quick. The pacing was off for most of the book, although Michael Tucker started to slow down toward the end.
    You guys would be fantastic, I'm sure, but not on this book. PLEASE remaster this book with Peter Coyote, and I would gladly pay AGAIN to get the content delivered by him.

    the story, of course, is amazing. And don Miguel Ruiz is certainly one of the modern teachers of this new age.

    I am an avid "reader"- I prefer to listen to books rather than read them due to the added dimension added by the narrator.

    "Well worth reading"
    If you could sum up The Mastery of Love in three words, what would they be?

    Excellent ideas and theme... Now let's all practice it.


    Did Jill Eikenberry and Michael Tucker do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, I thought they did a very good job and the alternating of the two narrators was effective in my opinion. They both have very soft, sensitive voices.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, I did not have any extreme reactions to this book.


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing I would say is that Don Miguel Ruiz has a very compelling style in his books and I feel he sometimes almost exaggerates the negative effects of not following his advice.

    "Download inlcudes only the first 2 chapters"

    I've downloaded this to my iPhone. I think the sound and performance of the readers is wonderful but this version only includes the first 2 chapters.
