Building on the principles found in his father’s bestselling
book, The Four Agreements, don Miguel
Ruiz Jr. invites us to gauge how attached we are to our own point of view. In The Five Levels of Attachment, he helps
us gain awareness of the attachments we’ve implicitly made throughout the years—attachments
that shape who we are. He then shows us how to release these attachments, which
no longer reflect our real selves.
When Ruiz began his apprenticeship in his
family’s Toltec tradition, he was just 14 years old. His first task was
translating his grandmother’s talks from Spanish into English. One day, as he
struggled to keep up with her, she asked him, “Are you using knowledge, or is
knowledge using you?” In search of an answer, he finds that her question will shape the destiny of his life.
In this groundbreaking work,
Ruiz explains each of the “Five Levels of Attachment” in detail and shows that
as our level of attachment, “who we are” becomes directly linked to “what we know.”
Our attachment to beliefs, our own and the beliefs of others, manifests as a
mask that can be removed. But with Ruiz’s help—and some Toltec wisdom along
the way—we can return to our true, authentic selves—unhindered by judgment and
free to pursue our true life’s calling.
