Book of The Week - The Mastery of Love by Don Miguel Ruiz•
Posted on December 11 2017
Hello everyone, I have this amazing book for you this week!
Its name is The Mastery of Love by Don Miguel Ruiz. This book focuses on romantic relationships and by stories and metaphors allows us to see a new, more realistic perspective on our overall relationship. I really enjoyed reading it since it has a soft tone and it contains a landmine of wisdom. For example, Mister Ruiz explains how important it is to love yourself and to be happy with yourself so you can have a profound romantic relationship.
And in reality, it’s true. No matter how much love can you give to your partner, if you don’t love yourself your relationship won’t work simply because on a subconscious level you believe you don’t deserve to be loved.
Mister Ruiz uses the three teachings of the Toltec – Awareness, Transformation, and Love to show us that our fears and misplaced expectations can only do harm to our relationships. It was such a great book to read, true to the point and emotionally and thought challenging.
So, get ready for some loving and reading people! Enjoy!
In the track of fear we have so many conditions, expectations, and obligations that we create a lot of rules just to protect ourselves against emotional pain, when the truth is that there shouldn't be any rules. These rules affect the quality of the channels of communication between us, because when we are afraid, we lie. If you have the expectation that I have to be a certain way, then I feel the obligation to be that way.The truth is I am bot what you want me to be. When I am honest and I am what I am, you are already hurt, you are mad. Then I lie to you, because I'm afraid of your judgment. I am afraid you are going to blame me, find me guilty, and punish me.
