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. The Mastery of Love includes:
• Why “domestication” and the “image of perfection” lead to self-rejection
• The war of control that slowly destroys most relationships
• Why we hunt for love in others, and how to capture the love inside us
• How to finally accept and forgive ourselves and others
“Happiness can only come from inside of you and is the result of your love. When you are aware that no one else can make you happy, and that happiness is the result of your love, this becomes the greatest mastery of the Toltec: the Mastery of Love.” — don Miguel Ruiz
I really appreciate the author for writing such life changing content. At a time like this, it is a great necessity to learn how to love. I recommend this to anyone who is doubtful about love, anyone who is feeling self-pity, anyone who is yearning to find love in another person. With this book you will learn how accepting and loving yourself will help you to truly love others. There’s no room for toxicity in relationships when we learn what love really is and we begin to love unconditionally. I will continue to replay this a few times in my lifetime so that I may not forget. I recommend this book to all who are willing to listen and learn.
