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.

Short & oh-so-sweet

In true tradition of the author, The Mastery of Love cuts to the core of our painful experience of love & flips it on its head so that we may never be without love again. The shift you may be needing right now!

Self love first

it's more about self love then the love in relationships with someone else. but self love is the most important love to have before you chose to enter into a relationship.

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.

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!

Required reading

When I started listening to this book I realised I'd already read it a year ago on Kindle. My initial thought was to return it and re-use the credit, but I was on a dog walk and left it playing anyway, and I'm glad I did. It's just brilliant. So many wonderful and valuable lessons about love and relationships. This book should be read by everyone, several times. I won't be returning it, so that I can listen to it over and over.

Very eye opening

I was sceptical at first because the book gave me cult like vibes, however, really loved the ideas in the book and the fact it is short and sweet so finished it all in 3 days. My favourite chapters explained the following: *how love is unconditional *no one is responsible for my happiness and I am not responsible for anyone else's happiness *the importance of self love *the importance of playing and exploring even as adults Would really recommend 🌸
