Book Review | The Mastery of Love by Don Miguel Ruiz | Message One

A special person in my life recognized that what I talk about is much like the wisdom of Don Miguel Ruiz. Mainly, the messages that come from his book “The Mastery of Love: A Practical Guide to the Art of Relationship ”. In turn, I want to share each message with you, my thoughts on the messages, and if possible, thoughts on application of the messages in daily life.

Message from Don Miguel Ruiz:
“Transform your life with self-love.”
“From now on, let every action, every reaction, every though, and every emotion be based on love. Increase your self-love until the entire dream of your life is transformed from fear and drama to love and joy.”

My thoughts on this message:
“…entire dream of your life..” He believes that our life is a dream. I’d add that like your dreams, you control your life.
Let everything be based on love, and according to the bible 1 Corinthians 13:13 “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love”.
“Increase self-love…”, be happy with who you are, be honest about who you are, living in happiness from within. Life isn’t always easy or fair, but we should still react with love as our driving force.

Daily application of this message:
No matter how others treat you, always let your inner driving force be love. You never know who you might meet and you could change that person’s outlook on life and of you with acts based on kindness.
Don’t let the actions, “drama” or feelings, “fear” of others become yours, by reciprocating them. Instead, take a different approach base on love and kindness.

I hope you enjoyed my post, feel free to share it, and I welcome your comments!
