Publisher's Summary

In The Voice of Knowledge, don Miguel Ruiz reminds us of a profound and simple truth: The only way to end our emotional suffering and restore our joy in living is to stop believing in lies, mainly about ourselves.

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.

    Story
    "Another message on the path to finding inner peace"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What other book might you compare The Voice of Knowledge to and why?

    The Four Agreements


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Owning Your Voice Of Knowledge


    Any additional comments?

    Easy to follow, listen too and revisit.

    "Very Inspiring Truth"
    What did you love best about The Voice of Knowledge?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Another great listen by this author, Ruiz, is The Mastery of Love.

    "One of the most enlightening&knowledgeable insight"
    Where does The Voice of Knowledge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What other book might you compare The Voice of Knowledge to and why?

    "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.


    Which character – as performed by Peter Coyote – was your favorite?

    I loved all of them. They each had something valuable to contribute.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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 :)
