Description

This book starts off discussing love on a conceptual level but then turns into more of a How To book...which is the part I enjoyed the most. Each of us creates a personal dream for our own self, but the humans before us created a big outside dream, the dream of the human society. The outside Dream, or the Dream of the Planet, is the collective Dream of billions of dreamers. The Big Dream includes all the rules of society, its laws, its religions, its different cultures and ways to be.” The author: Miguel Ruiz once went to medical school and became a surgeon. Later in life after a traumatic accident he forsook it all to learn the healer’s ways and become an “Eagle-Knight” in the Nagual tradition. He has since studied the “Toltec” people and written about their teachings. He has written a few books now, the most successful being “The Four Agreements.” To master a relationship is therefore about action. It is not about concepts or attaining knowledge. It is about action. Of course, to have action, we need to have some knowledge or at least a little more awareness of the way humans operate.” You will forgive them not because they deserve to be forgiven, but because you don’t want to suffer and hurt yourself every time you remember what they did to you."

There are humans versus humans in a jungle of predators; humans full of judgment, full of blame, full of guilt, full of emotional poison — envy, anger, hate, sadness, suffering. We create all these little demons in our mind because we have learned to dream hell in our own life.” On the positive side, this book contains some healthy and true messages about how we love, and why we fail, and how so many of our actions and reactions are based on fear. There were some messages in this book that I needed to hear, but I could have removed a lot of fluff of the analogies and stories. They either just felt off the wall to me, or not really well told. I even skimmed through some sections instead of reading them properly. It very simply explains that all you need to do is love yourself first and all things will fall into place.Every human being has a personal dream of life, and that dream is completely different from anyone else’s dream. We dream according to all the beliefs that we have, and we modify our dream according to the way we judge, according to the way we are victimized. That is why dreams are never the same for any two people. In a relationship, we can pretend to be the same, to think the same, to feel the same, to dream the same, but there is no way that can happen. There are two dreamers with two dreams. Every dreamer is going to dream in his own way. That is why we need to accept the differences that exist between two dreamers; we need to respect each other’s dream.” however, i do this this book missed the mark when it comes to dealing with trauma, as well as coming across as quite judgmental toward alcohol and drug usage, which i did not appreciate especially in a book that preaches self acceptance and self love. there were certain comments and even certain phrasing that did not sit right with me and made me question who the author was and what he was really trying to preach. i thought maybe i was overthinking it, but i had this feeling on more than one account and it even made me want to stop reading at times.

When we love, we don’t have expectations, we do it because we want to, and if other people do it or not, it’s because they want to or not and it’s nothing personal.” We were born in this society, we grew up in this society. And we learn to be like everyone else, playing nonsense all the time.” The limit of your self-abuse is the limit you will tolerate from other people. If someone abuses you more than you abuse yourself, you walk away, you run, you escape. But if someone abuses you a little less than you abuse yourself, perhaps you stay longer. You still deserve that abuse.” this book was filled with lots of wonderful nuggets of wisdom and truths regarding the ideas of love, and how love is the driving force in our lives. i learned a lot and marked down a lot of specific phrases, as the writing was calming and beautiful. it definitely felt like a spiritual experience just reading it, and ruiz's storytelling made for a fresh and magical read, making this book different from the average self help book.Every relationship we have [...] is unique because we dream a small dream together. Every relationship becomes a living being made by two dreamers. p 57-58 If you take your happiness and put it in someone's hands, sooner or later,s he is giong to break it. If you give your happiness to someone else, she can always take it away. Then if happiness can only come from inside of you and is the result of your love, you are responsible for your happiness. We can never make anyone responsible for our own happiness, [...] p53 The tools shared by don Miguel are based on common sense and shared with such simplicity, that the universal message underlying his teaching is recognized by many. don Miguel's message is simple, practical and when implemented, even incrementally, changes lives.
