I thought daddy (Don Miguel Ruiz) was good, and he is, of course. He changed my entire way of thinking, but his son (DMR Jr.) is equally good. The way he says things is so simple, but at the same time it's clear and concise, possibly more so than his father, and it reaches so deep so quickly. It's as if every word is alive and once you read what he says it lives in you. I've read all of DMR's books so far, but I can honestly say that my life has changed again just on reading the first two opening chapters of this book. Things that have been confusing me and causing me anxiety for years, and for which I seemed unable to find any answers, are being cleared up. I'm going to take this one slowly to enjoy it to the max., but with all DMR and DMR Jr.'s books, I will be reading them again and again.
What our psychologists slowly developed, is shown in simple words within the knowledge of the Toltec, the "artists" of life. I can only recommend this book, to better understand the pattern of the human mind and the so called "ego", the identity we formed based on our conditioning... Free yourself of the shadow and live life without attachment, in pure joy of the lifeprocess itself and all its illusions.

5,0 von 5 SternenOverall great book with a strong message!

I have purchased almost all of the books published by the Ruiz family, but this is the first one authored by don Miguel Ruiz Jr. that I have purchased. I feel that there is a certain.. uniqueness.. that sets him apart from don Miguel and his brother don Jose, however his work delivers the same overall "message" and "feel" of the family's other works. I enjoyed his good use of analogies as reference points for comparison. The only thing that really sets this book apart from those authored by his father and brother is that his writing style seems to be more.. repetitive. I did not appreciate this repetitiveness quite as much as don Miguel or don Jose's style which seem to be more linear, crossing many points with only subtle back-references. However, don Miguel Jr. broached the important topic of attachment which was not nearly as clearly addressed in the family's other works, so this book remains a key piece to the puzzle. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has previously read and enjoyed the Four Agreements and the Fifth Agreement as it provides a deeper understanding and clearer path to breaking free of the barriers that can get in the way of practicing the five agreements.
I love reading Miguel Ruiz and wanted to give this book by Jr. A try and I enjoyed it. Somehow their books seem to have the most power to bring me back to center and help me have real, positive growth.
I also love Heather Ash Amara for you ladies that want to find your true inner strength.
I've tried reading non Toltec books, and it just doesn't have the same impact. This study, or belief... it hiys home in ways that others don't.
I was raised Christian and read a few books focused on similar things but around God or Christianity and I just find them to be lacking impact. It might be my own blocks getting in the way here, but I prefer Toltec. They are highly inclusive of all believes and at least they habe the right approach by accepting all. Something many can learn from!
Really good read. Alot to take in and absorb, i found myself having to take breaks to question my own beleifs and attachments. Its amazing how many negative and dysfunctional agreements we hold on to that prevent us from living a life of personal freedom and minimal conflict. This book definitely helps you achieve that and can be read again and again!

This book talks about our attachments to our ideas. I realized a lot through reading this book. The maze exercise at the end was very relevant and helpful for letting go of the things others have said and done that have hurt us, but by making us realize it was the way we were perceiving (using their words to hurt ourselves) was the cause of pain. I will definitely re-read this in the years to come. I didn't care for the sports analogy used throughout the book, but I'm sure that was a less problematic example to ease the reader into the subject of attachment.
5,0 von 5 Sternen... the latter stages of attachment is fruitless and a waste of effort

Eye opening way to look at how people's beliefs dictate the conversations you have every day and why 'debating/arguing' with others in the latter stages of attachment is fruitless and a waste of effort. If you truly take this info on board, your world view will change dramatically
