The human mind is afflicted with a disease called fear--a chronic vigilance about being hurt that causes negative behaviors. The author says that awareness, freedom, and love are the essence of who we really are, and are central to the Toltec tradition, which was practiced in southern Mexico by ancient artists and scientists. There are both mental health and spiritual aspects to these teachings, which emphasize the ways we distort life's potentials and diminish our own power. Though Ruiz is an excellent and compact writer, his message of opportunity falls short of inspiring in this recording by two otherwise talented actors. The narration makes the work sound uneven and overly intellectual. T.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
