For the first time ever, the Toltec wisdom from the Ruiz family is bound together in a book of Daily Meditations.Readers are invited on a six-month journey of daily lessons with don Miguel Ruiz Jr. that are designed to inspire, nourish, and enlighten adherents as they travel along the Toltec path.Drawing on years of apprenticeship under his father and grandmother, don Miguel Ruiz Jr. shares Toltec lessons on Love, Faith, Agreements, and most importantly: Awareness. The purpose of each meditation is to guide readers into a deeper understanding of his or her self, as well as the world in which we live.In the introduction to the book, don Miguel Ruiz Jr. reminds readers that progress on the Toltec path is not measured by the acquisition of things, status, or even ideas, but rather the complete and total realization that everything in the world is perfect, exactly the way it is at this moment."Love is accepting ourselves just the way we are, with all of our flaws and our ever-changing belief system. You are nothing else but who you are. You are not the person you were a year ago. You are not the person you will be in a year. You aren't even the person you think you are. You simply are, and that must be enough." --don Miguel Ruiz Jr.This book will have special appeal to those already familiar with his father's books "The Four Agreements, The Mastery of Love," and "The Fifth Agreement," as well as don Miguel Ruiz Jr.'s own book, "The Five Levels of Attachment." It also makes a wonderful gift.

Review:

How to Love Yourself (and Sometimes Other People) is a modern-day guide to all things relationship - starting with numero uno - yourself. I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like more love in their life. And last time I checked that was everyone on the planet. (Dr Christiane Northrup, New York Times bestselling author of Goddesses Never Age)

How to Love Yourself is one of the best books I've read on the topic of relationships. This book translates life-changing spiritual principles in a hip and relevant way. Meggan and Lodro offer the most treasured gift - a pathway to learn to love yourself no matter what. I recommend this book to anyone ready to give, receive and embody love. (Gabrielle Bernstein, New York Times bestselling author of Miracles Now)

This is a new kind of self-help book. There is no perfection and pontificating here - just the beautiful, messy and wonderful truth about love, shared with great generosity. While both authors are deeply steeped in their mutual wisdom traditions, their greatest teachings are in the personal stories they share. No matter what is (or isn't) happening in your life, Lodro and Meggan help you to see that your whole life is your love life. (Susan Piver, New York Times bestselling author of The Wisdom of a Broken Heart and Start Here Now)

How to Love Yourself is an illuminating look at love - a quality hard to figure out even as we are taught that it makes the world go 'round. The book is wise, useful and also great fun to read. Lodro, from his long-term Buddhist practice, and Meggan, with her Christian mystic background, offer different ways of viewing love as the force that frees us to truly be ourselves and be happy. (Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness)

The great thing about Lodro and Meggan writing a book about love is that you get perspectives from both a down-to-earth Buddhist dude, and a hot female mystic - AND! - double the jokes and love stories. The result is a lot of truth and modern wisdom on how to expand your capacity to love - in suffering, in sex, in separation, in spirit, in your very real life that could always be filled with more love. (Danielle LaPorte, New York Times bestselling author of The Desire Map and The Fire Starter Sessions)

I so wish I had read this book when I was 18 and just starting out in the dating world. It would have saved me a lot of trouble and a boatload of Kleenex. Meggan and Lodro are not only totally sane in their approach to relationships, they're also practical and hilarious. This page-turner will most assuredly crack you up, but more importantly, it will ease your path to finding the love of your life, whether that turns out to be someone else or the person staring back at you when you look in the mirror. (Kate Northrup, bestselling author of Money, A Love Story)

I am so grateful the universe shifted and brought both Meggan and Lodro together to share this sacred work. Loving yourself is no easy task but it's the most rewarding lesson. How To Love Yourself (and Sometimes Other People) is a manual that helps you dive deep into the cave of your own heart so you can become your own beloved. This step-by-step guide helps you crack open the most auspicious part of you so that you can walk safely in love. If you are ready to courageously leap out of fear and into unconditional love, this is the book for you. (Kyle Gray, bestselling author of Angel Prayers)

Meggan Watterson and Lodro Rinzler have written a modern-day spiritual 'he said, she said' as they guide us along the path to loving ourselves fiercely, ultimately giving way to loving others and being loved. Intimate, entertaining, provocative and revealing, How To Love Yourself (and Sometimes Other People) is for all seekers of self-love and self-acceptance. Give your heart a gift and immerse yourself in the wisdom and lessons this book has to offer - you just may find love where you least expect it. (Nancy Levin, bestselling author of Jump . . . And Your Life Will Appear)

How To Love Yourself (And Sometimes Other People) has real modern gems in it, and the down-to-earth and complementary voices of its authors, Meggan and Lodro - both young experts in their own spiritual fields - leave you feeling like they are totally present with you as you read these pages. What really helps us to navigate love is a good conversation with trusted friends, friends who don't judge us, friends who actually know what they are talking about. Meggan and Lodro both show their ability to be those friends, to themselves, to each other and to us as we read along. (Ethan Nichtern, author of The Road Home)

Looking for love? Well, stop. Seriously, the search is over. Meggan and Lodro remind us that love is right here, within. There's nowhere we need to go or some better version of ourself we need to become. How To Love Yourself is that slap to the forehead that we all can use. This beautiful gem reminds us that we are love and therefore we don't need to wait for a partner to find love. We can get that party started right now - and then a partner can swing in and join us on this wild adventure of loving ourselves. No stress. No expectations. Just love. (Kris Carr, New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Sexy Diet and Crazy Sexy Kitchen)

Book Description Hay House UK Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. How to Love Yourself (and Sometimes Other People) is a smart, hip guide for spiritual seekers who want to experience more love and stability in all forms of relationships. Told from the unique vantage points of authors Meggan Watterson and Lodro Rinzler, this book explores staying anchored in the foundation of self-love as you navigate the natural (and often stormy) cycle of a relationship. Their dual perspectives as teachers and scholars of Christian mysticism and Buddhism make for a rich and fascinating dialogue that covers everything from sex, self-worth, deep friendships and falling in (and out of) love, to break-ups - and how to maintain an open heart through it all. At its core, this book is about learning to love yourself no matter what. Meggan and Lodro suggest that you are worthy of love - both self-love and the love of others. They aren't experts on how to get that person to fall in love with you, nor are they experts on how to have 'the perfect relationship'. They are spiritual teachers who know that relationships have a life of their own, and can speak to the human element of what it means to experience them fully. In the process, they share deeply personal, revealing, honest anecdotes and spiritual practices to assist you with the inevitable ebb and flow of love in all its manifestations.
