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

by Sharon Casey
Actually I think it should have a different title, something along the lines of, "How to find yourself", or "How to love yourself", even if he does gives practical advice about love and relationships. It is absolutely brilliant how he describes how we live in society, that we are ruled by our beliefs based on fear rather than love. That these beliefs feed a parasite on our emotional system causing wounds and poison. The objective of the book is to make the reader aware and then describe a way to open the wounds with the truth and clean the wounds with forgiveness. This is the only way to heal. The more we become aware that our beliefs are based on fear leading to self-rejection, selfishness, negative self esteem, anger, guilt and possessiveness the more chance we have of changing our fundamental patterns to a belief of love. A very convincing book. It reminds me very much of the Matrix movie. I guess in a way, just like Neo could choose which pill he could swallow, you too can choose whether you want to read this book and start to make a change. My advice would be to read it and get another perspective! Whether you choose to change is your more
