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.

Freedom to love

The Toltec way gives freedom to be our authentic selves. I never understood the phrase "we are love" until Don showed me myself and validated ALL of me, all my beliefs about my spiritual self. Now I feel myself, my love, flowing at will and without limitations. We can change the world this way. Thank you!

Any additional comments?

i highly recommend this book. First time in months that i listened to book straight through..without skipping to other books, and coming back to book i was reading or listing to. Couldn't put this one down . Don Miguel Ruiz always does a great job of conveying insights so clearly with adding examples and stories to make it interesting.

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
