Publisher's Summary

The ancient Toltecs believed that life, as we perceive it, is a dream. We each live in our own personal dream, and these come together to form the dream of the planet, or the world in which we live.

Problems arise when our perception of the dream becomes clouded with negativity, drama, and judgment (of ourselves and others), because it's in these moments of suffering that we have forgotten that we are the architects of our own reality and we have the power to change our dream if we choose.

In The Mastery of Self, best-selling author and teacher don Miguel Ruiz Jr. takes the Toltec philosophy of the dream of the planet and offers you a road map to reclaiming your authentic self. He reveals how the tools of awareness, understanding, and unconditional love can free you from any inhibiting beliefs, stories, or ideas that are keeping you from living the best life possible.

This book can help you discover who you really are at the deepest level, which often lies just beyond any conditioning or domestication you have acquired throughout your life.

Not as talented as Dad

A bit scrambled - not cohesive. I found the author constantly quoting his friends, or other authors. Gave up 1/2 way through.

Scale of 1 to 10. This book is a 20!

This book engaged my emotions on a level I didn't think was possible. Mastery of self definitely played a big role on my perception of this world. Thankyou! My Gratitude goes to the author.

Great insight into Toltec Wisdom

I read this book after finishing The Four Agreements. Don Miguel Ruiz expands on his father's ideals beautifully and elucidates how you too can learn these insights through great stories, explanations and wonderful exercise. Highly recommend this book to anyone on the Path.

dreadfully monotone

I've tried so hard to get through this book. I can't say much for it, however, because I can't finish the damn thing! it's so dreadfully monotone, it makes it painful to get through. the book itself, seems fine

definitely worth a listen

I really enjoyed this book. while I have read other books I have been noticing that they are all basically saying the same thing. everybody is using different words to express the same ideas. If you are a fan of this type of self realization and you are a fan of Don Miguel Ruiz or his son, then you will like this.
