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.

This is my first exposure to Don Miguel Ruiz, Toltec wisdom and philosophy. I love the life simplicity and spiritual commonality that we all are connected to, but often ignore or just can't "see".
The narration was pleasantly engaging. I'm looking forward to experiencing The Four Agreements.
The book was exceptional. I agree personally with almost all of what the author discussed. However, I was unaware that I agreed with it until I heard it, so a very valuable piece of work.
Great book for anyone who is on or testing the path of truth, consciousness and love. Simple concepts yet profoundly impactful. If you read and practice the concepts of this book you may never look at life the same way. It will be so much more beautiful. Just like your true nature.
My most memorable moment is realizing that I have been listening to my silent voice - integrity. Convergently my soul is experiencing my greatest peace. Love is greater and I enjoy more of the simpler things in life and happiness reigns!
I am excited to create my second story!
I'm familiar with the 4 Agreements but had struggles integrating them into my thought process.
Then I listened to this and realized it was the voice of my thoughts alone that was keeping me from reaching my goal. If you want to find confidence, peace, and who you really are,, this book will light a path. You still have to walk the path and do the work, but if you truly want to change your perceptions this is the book you want.
Excellent. Worth every penny.
