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.

Yes, very good information that helps you understand things from a spiritual, mental, and emotional level.
It was a spiritual story but not too spiritual. It's presented in a way that most people can understand and relate to.
The story about us being born with healthy skin. Then, by about four years old, the adults have infected us and we start to develop sores, and by teenage years we have many sores.
You have to choose to recover or heal your wounds.
This book and every book he has written - voice of knowledge - obviously four agreements...
Just leave me speechless.
Seriously, so grateful from the bottom of my heart for this transformative teaching.
My advice: don't let religion stop you from taking all the other beautiful teachings from these books. I was raised Christian. You can just ignore the parts that don't fit with you while savoring all the other nuggets of wisdom and truth.
So much love to the Ruizs and all humans! Let's Master Love and stop hurting ourselves by being hurtful to others!
This. Was very helpful and an enjoyable listen.
Highly recommend this to anybody. Reading the four agreements or listening to the four agreements goes nicely hand-in-hand with this book.
Loved this book and finished it after the Four Agreements, now am going back to re-read both for good practice. We already know a lot of this information but I really like the way it's presented and how simplistic the message is. I highly recommend this book for anyone that likes self-improvement and changing old methods for growth and personal freedom.
Highly recommend this book in any format. The audiobook has only two chapters, while the actual book has more. I wish I could navigate to chapters.
