Don Miguel Ruiz illuminates the fear-based beliefs and assumptions that undermine love and lead to suffering and drama in our relationships. He 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.
With more than 2.7 million copies of his The Four Agreements sold, Ruiz returns to readers with a new volume that presents his latest thoughts on the ways and means of inner knowledge and healing. Written in the first person with frequent apostrophic addresses ("You need to challenge every belief that you use to judge yourself, to reject yourself, to make yourself little"), the book moves gracefully and anecdotally from"Adam and Eve: The Story from a Different Point of View" to"The Tree of Life: The Story Comes Full Circle," with 10 chapters in between, including"The Lie of Our Imperfection," a chapter that covers"emotional pain as a symptom of abuse" and one on"Writing Our Story with Love," with frequent stops for"Points to Ponder." For Ruiz, life can be a matter of storytelling, to ourselves and to others. His reflections on the process of how people tell these stories, and how they can change their narratives, draw on the lore of his native Mexico and feel both centered and earned.

Don Miguel reminds us of our spirituality as the human beings that we are. Nothing is impossible. That is the Law of Nature. Believe in everything. Yin-yang - life is at a balance, always in equilibrium. Beautifully written.
This is my ultimate favorite! An easy read, and definitely a life changing book. I have a copy at home, soon to purchase for my iPhone, and a great gift. It's an interesting perspective, and refreshing to read time and time again.
The Mastery of Love
Highly recommend every single person truly trying to grow to read this book. It’s definitely not a book to read in one sitting if you want to fully engage, the readings will require some time to process and figure out where exactly to insert the lessons.
