As I read this new book from don Miguel Ruiz Jr, I was inspired to question those agreements I unconsciously made and take back my power. He explains in The Mastery of Self, "Toltec means artist of life."
Ruiz weaves a fascinating tapestry from threads of his ancestral tradition and stories from his own journey of self discovery.
I love that he doesn't teach from an elevated position. Instead, he illustrates how it is possible to see my life as one of the many "dreams of the planet" that is creating the world at this very moment. He leads as a sort of fellow dreamer or fellow traveler with us all.
After I read the last few lines of this book, I walked outside my house and saw the world around me with new eyes. I saw the possibilities to paint on the canvas of my life and create from the deep river of my own passion.
As Ruiz teaches it, mastery is not some esoteric path reserved for mystics or renunciates in a monastery. Mastery is the practice of coming present every day, releasing outdated agreements about reality, and creating my own work-of-art life one creator's choice at a time.
I feel more powerful and committed to my "life as art" after reading this beautiful book.
“Domestication is the primary system of control in the Dream of the Planet. Starting when we are very young, we are presented with either a reward or a punishment for adopting the beliefs and behaviors that others in the Dream of the Planet find acceptable.”
Miguel uses many wonderful examples to explain how domestication occurs in our lives (both in good and bad ways), and explains how when we aren’t aware of our own domestication (all the little ways we have bought into the “system” without investigation) we end up making choices and decisions that really aren’t are own, but rather the ones we have been programmed to make. Or as Miguel writes, “without awareness of our domestications and attachments then any notion that we have a choice is an illusion.”
This is something I struggled with for years, pursuing things that really weren't me, all because I thought I was "supposed" to. While I had already dealt with many of these issues, I appreciated how Miguel explained them, it felt like a vindication, and I also found a few new areas I need to look at too.
Lastly I also really liked the variety of exercises that are included in this book, but especially the ones which are designed to help us spot our own domestication, because once we are aware of it we can decide if we want to keep it or not.
