Presents a guide to using the principles of Toltec philosophy to overcome attachments and beliefs that are the cause of suffering and that stand in the way of achieving personal freedom and happiness.

Red Wheel/Weiser

This is a book that picks up where The Four Agreements left off. Building on the principles found in his father's bestselling book, Ruiz, Jr. explores the ways in which we attach ourselves inappropriately to beliefs and the world.

Ruiz explores the five levels of attachment that cause suffering in our lives. The levels are:

  • Authentic Self
  • Preference
  • Identification
  • Internalization
  • Fanaticism

Accessible and practical, Ruiz's exploration invites us to look at our own lives and see how an unhealthy level of attachment can keep us trapped in a psychological and spiritual fog. He then invites us to reclaim our true freedom by cultivating awareness, detaching, and discovering our true selves.

A love the format of the text in the book. It makes it easy for me to read and the book is not very large so you can go through it rather quickly. That being said it is well written and it gave me a lot of advice on letting go on things that are inhibiting growth in my life. If you want a book to help you with self-love and acceptance, this would be a great introduction into that. Towards the end of the book, you get exercises to help you on your way to self-love.
