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, Identity, 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.

The author not only details the five levels of attachment, but also the five levels of getting unattached; in other words, how to break free from the masks we wear. He also tells us how we form assumptions and how to break free with awareness. Furthermore, I enjoyed his discussion on the quest for truth vs. the quest for being right.
The book is written in the simple, easy-to-read style of the author's famous father. You can read it in one sitting, in fact. I love the glossy cover which feels so soft. (How can people buy kindle books when physical ones are so aesthetic and even kinesthetic?)
Memorable quotes abound in this book. Here are some of my favorites:
++ As natural storytellers, we continuously keep the plot moving forward, sometimes missing millions of subplots that are developing on their own.
++ Self confidence is being able and willing to question you own beliefs.
++ The moment you understand that the image of the mask is not you, you regain the awareness of your true self--an individual who is completely free to take any direction in life.
++ When I believe something must stay in its rightful place, exactly as it is, for me to be OK, I have become attached to it, I have confused this external thing with who I am.

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!
