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.

Book exceeded my expectations. Peter Coyote was a fabulous narrator. Life-changing message. Recommended reading for all adult ages interested in living life to the fullest.
This book is phenomenal. Everyone should listen to it. I listened twice and will do it again. If you want heaven on earth, listen to this or any of his books every day.
Gallup Strengths: INPUT ~ LEARNER ~ ACHIEVER ~ RESPONSIBILITY ~ DISCIPLINE
Yes, the Miguel Ruiz clan continues to find more depth in explaining the journey of life in simplistic, yet infinite detail. The art of practicing and relearning is made easier and seems like a natural progression when combined with all of their teachings.
The Four Agreements
Visualizing the grandmothers dream process, going back to their origin of teaching techniques. You can almost imagine being there and see it for yourself. In your own dream.
Owning Your Voice Of Knowledge
Easy to follow, listen too and revisit.
I loved that the message of the book was so simply delivered. With this kind of simplicity it seems as though anyone can easily apply the principals in order to live a more meaningful life without all the added drama (lies). I can honestly say that this book changed me for the better! This book spoke to my integrity at such a core level, I felt as if my spirit was simply nodding in agreement the entire time, but it was my mind that was unfolding and learning these new things. Like pulling weeds to uncover a beautiful garden waiting to be enjoyed! I also loved the narrator. He was so easy on the ears and pleasant to listen to.
Another great listen by this author, Ruiz, is The Mastery of Love.
I will no longer believe in lies.
I am listening to all of Don Miguel Ruiz's books, over and over. They're incredibly powerful.
Yes, it changed my perspective of myself and of life.
Everyone is perfect and they need to treat themselves that way.
Near death experience.
All of it!
A must read!
Yes-I feel that it delivered a needed "jolt" allowing me to appreciate my journey and gain awareness that I am making progress.
It continues the road established by previous works.
None. Peter Coyote is a terrific interpreter of the author's words.
I feel this is a good listen.
Considering the most that we listen to is children bases stories, Don Miguel Ruiz work is amazing that he has the ability to speak opening and givingly to us all, continuing his ancestors word and action through his own.
"When things fall apart" Pema Chodron. This book also resonated with me, at a time that also made complete sense, it all synced into place.
I loved all of them. They each had something valuable to contribute.
i felt relieved, excited and understood .... fascinating to have feelings flow through you and then you hear of this toltec traditions and it all makes sense, the pieces of our own puzzle fits. Finally :)
