Publisher's Summary

Outside of Mexico City lies the ancient pyramid complex of Teotihuacan, which, according to the oral tradition of the Ruiz family, was the spiritual center for the Toltec people. For over 30 years, Toltec master Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. has been traveling to the pyramids of Teotihuacan to teach others about the powerful mysteries that can be found there. Now, for the first time ever, Ruiz reveals the meaning and transformative power of this ancient city to all and explains to listeners how they too can experience this transformation in their own lives.

Teotihuacan is no ordinary city, and according to Ruiz, the pyramid complex was specifically designed with detailed spiritual lessons in mind. Ruiz leads the reader through the development of three stages of life mastery - the mastery of awareness, the mastery of transformation, and the mastery of intent - and shows how the wisdom of the ancients is more relevant than ever to the world we inhabit today.Not content merely to describe these powerful lessons, this book also includes a wealth of practical meditations, exercises, and reflections to assist the listener along their own path to personal peace.

Awesome Content…but

Everything Ruiz is beautiful; every word liberating, but I had an extremely difficult time with the narration. His voice was pleasant, accent charming, and I would love to listen to him on anything else, however I suppose I’m spoiled by hearing Don Miguel Ruiz, Jr himself. To me, a British accent, while charming, doesn’t have the melody to match the writing. It just sounds weird and I had a problem envisioning the landscape and didn’t feel like I was being guided by the Ruiz family, but rather by an Oxford Academic who was an expert in ancient tradition and culture, could define the Gods, but didn’t truly grasp the deep spirituality of it.

Amazing Mysteries Of Life Revealed

The Ruiz Family has a collection of Toltec Spiritual Mysticism that closely aligns with my spiritual Buddhist practitioners teachings of Enlightenment to our true selves…the Enlightened Buddha within.

My Infinite Wisdom Bookclub (IWS) is reading The Mastery of Life now and have read many books from the Amazing Ruiz Family. Awakening to the Truth that “We all have Potential to be Buddha”hence we are. It’s past time to “Cast off the transient, Reveal the Truth”. Awakening to this reality WE ARE BUDDHA’s alone will bring out the equality of ALL AND THE WORLD PEACE & HAPPINESS WE DESPERATELY WANT AND NEED 😇
PEACE ☮️ ✌🏾 SOON COME….

Now is always the time.

I'm amazed at how the Toltec wisdom compliments other traditions and practices. Another reason I stay neutral in my belief system. All I need is a PDF or written example or template to practice the exercises.
