Before we learn to speak, our true nature is to love and be happy, to explore and enjoy life. As little children, we are completely authentic. Our actions are guided by instinct and emotions, we listen to the silent "voice of our integrity". Once we learn to speak, the people around us hook our attention and program us with knowledge. The "voice of knowledge" comes alive inside our head, and what is that voice telling us? Mostly lies. That voice never stops talking, judging, gossiping, and abusing us. It constantly sabotages our happiness and keeps us from enjoying a reality of truth and love.
Ruiz shows us how to recover the silent voice of our integrity and find inner peace. When the voice of knowledge no longer controls us, our life becomes an expression of our authentic self, just as it was before we learned to speak. Then we return to the truth, we return to love, and we live in happiness again.

I feel I have become more aware of myself. I need to follow much more of these writings to increase my knowledge of myself
"Opening the truth story"
A beautiful poetry story, wherein one awakens to the story of ones self. Inviting you to sit quietly with yourself and listen to the story you have heard from others of who THEY think you are, and who you think you are. However, who are you without the story.........
"We are all angels..."
I loved the book, it's the third book of Don Miguel Ruiz that I've listened to, after Mastery of Love and The Four Agreements, and I'm still amazed at his wisdom and how he brings it across. I still cannot understand how in 25 years of spiritual search I have completely missed his work! He is my new favourite author, and my favourite quote of this book is that 'you are an angel and your life is your message.'
"A must read for the human race."
beauty in its simplicity. the words of true wisdom. words that may lead the reader to true happiness and inner peace.
Absolutely loved this audio book. Can't recommend it highly enough for those seeking the truth, whatever path they might be on.
I just can't see how you'd be disappointed.
Absolutely! In fact I've listened more than 3 times already and every time I listen it deepens my understanding to the next level
Being able to differentiate the knowledge and wisdom.
It makes me feel like someone's actually talking to you rather than you're listening an audio book.
Oh yes, I just couldn't stop.
Absolutely love all the books by Don Miguel Ruiz
