In life humans are masters in many different ways. We are all masters. We know how to love, how to be happy, and how to forgive. But sometimes we can’t do that because we have emotional wounds. The Mastery of Love book shows how to love, how to forgive, and how heal emotional wounds. But the most important thing is to know how to love yourself. I will analyze the book chapters and after that I will talk about my opinion.
Chapter one, entitled “The Wounded Mind,” is about people’s emotional wounds. All humans are mentally sick with fear. People are afraid to be who they are. If someone says something bad to a person, he/she will take it personally and it would be hurtful. To protect that ...view middle of the document...
And this opens an emotional wound in the mind, and may it get infected by emotional poison. In short, we lost our innocence since childhood, and started to have emotional wounds.
Chapter three, entitled “The Men Who Don’t Believe in Love,” is about men that think love doesn’t exist. The author is trying to say that people sometimes making mistakes when they are getting married. Couples are giving a lot of promises to love, care, support each other, but when they live together, they break all those promises and start to hurt and manipulate each other. That is why, men think that love doesn’t exist. The author is also saying that, it doesn’t matter how much couple love each other, he/she is never going to be what the person wants him/her to be. Couples base their happiness on their partners, and it doesn’t work that way. If you take your love and give it to someone, sooner or later, that person is going to break your heart. In short, men don’t believe that love exist.
Chapter four, entitled “The Track of Love, The Track of Fear,” is about human emotions that come from love and fear. Mostly, our relationships based on fear and love. The author of this book, Miguel Ruiz, called that emotion “track of love” and “track of fear.” People from track of love have no expectations and no obligations, whereas people from track of fear have obligation and is full of expectations. Fear hurts, but love doesn’t. Constantly, we expect from other things that don’t happen and we feel hurt. Ruiz also said that love is always kind and it’s based on respect, but fear is unkind and avoids responsibility. Love is unconditional, fear is full of conditions. In the track of love, there is justice. If someone makes a mistake, they pay just once. Whereas, in the track of fear there is no justice; for the same mistake, people pay a thousand times. In short, all relationships are based on fear and love.
Chapter five, entitled “The Perfect Relationship,” is about couple’s relationship. Ruiz is comparing a dog with a person in the relationship. He is saying that people accept that a dog is a dog; it’s not a horse or cat. In the same way, couples should accept that he is him and she is her. In order to have a perfect relationship, each person should do their half of work and be responsible. Also, to have a perfect relationship, people should find the right man or woman; someone who wants to go in the same direction as you do, and someone who is compatible with your views and your values. According to Ruiz, “The one who loves you, loves you just the way you are (179).” In other words, if someone wants to change you, it means that you are not the one for him/her. In short, to have a perfect relationship, people should be responsible and accept each other.
In chapter six, entitled “The Magical Kitchen,” the author comparing the magical kitchen to human’s heart. In the magical kitchen there is a big amount of food which enough for everyone. Similar to the human’s heart, when you...
