The Five Levels of Attachment
By Don Miguel Ruiz Jr.
“This is a book that picks up where The Four Agreements left off. Building on the principles found in his father’s bestselling book, Ruiz, Jr. explores the ways in which we attach ourselves inappropriately to beliefs and the world.
Ruiz explores the five levels of attachment that cause suffering in our lives. The levels are: Authentic Self, Preference, Identification, Internalization, Fanaticism
Accessible and practical, Ruiz’s exploration invites us to look at our own lives and see how an unhealthy level of attachment can keep us trapped in a psychological and spiritual fog. He then invites us to reclaim our true freedom by cultivating awareness, detaching, and discovering our true selves.”
A great follow-up to ‘The Four Agreements” this book continues to focus on self awareness. It’s focus is on our belief systems and how attached to those truths we are, and how those truths and our attachments effect our lives and how just the awareness of this information opens us to making choices based off a more open minded perception. I found the information in this book very helpful I think its a good, worthwhile read. Good book for personal growth.
One of my favorites points in the book is:
“Our point of view creates our reality. When we are stuck in our beliefs, our reality becomes rigid, stagnant, and oppressive. We become bound to our attachments because we have lost our ability to recognize that we have a choice to free of them.”
