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.

    "lovely but abridged"

    I loved the other Don Miguel Ruiz audios and they are transforming me... but I would not have ordered this one had I realized it was abridged. The others are not, so I didn't even check. With that said, I still gleaned a lot from the book but wanted to mention the abridgement in case that is important to other potential listeners.

    You will feel much more in touch with your real 'Self' after listening to Toltec wisdom.

    "A new way to see yourself and others"

    This is a beautiful and gentle way of seeing others and yourself in a much more compassionate way. Knowing that everything we are programmed with is just a habit that has been deeply entrenched over the millenia. The beauty about a habit is that it's changeable when you do another behaviour instead.

    "change the story!"

    Change the story in your head and stop believing all the lies you have told yourself, and other people have told you. Believe in light and love and kindness; pray to be shown the way. A very inspirational book!!!

    "This resonated with me"

    I found the first chapter to be kind of a strugle but it definitely got better from there.

    The author's metaphore is simple and altruistic.

    I liked his view of the "Truth" and "lies" and found it refreshing and simple way of dealing with one's self and surroundings.

    I hope I can silence the "lies" as he puts it.

    Easily worth the time and money for me.

    "MOST OF WHAT WE KNOW AS "TRUTH" ARE "LIES""
    Any additional comments?

    I have something for you to ponder upon... If God is perfect and HE created us in HIS image, are we not perfect too? One of the biggest lies we have accepted and come to believe for generations...is that we are NOT perfect. As a result, we oftentimes find ourselves on a quest for perfection...to be perfect.... But, what is "perfection"? What is your definition of being "perfect"? And most importantly, who sets the standard of what we've come to know as perfect?

    This quest for perfection oftentimes than not, has lead us down the road of self-doubt, hatred and judgment of ourselves and others.

    What if we viewed ourselves and others as God intended. ..as perfect? Would there be any kind of conflict in the world? What would your life be like?
    People who truly love themselves....truly...every moment of everyday, regardless of their present or past circumstances are able to view and love others the same. With love, their are no conditions....there are no judgments.
    What do you think about yourself? Is your opinion of yourself based on the opinions and standards of others? What are those standards? Where did they come from? Are they in-line with how God says HE created you?

    So much to ponder.... We are all learning more about ourselves in relation to what we have been taught, what we have accepted as truth, and it's affect on our lives. It is time to challenge those accepted standards of society that we hold as "truths" and open our eyes wide enough to see through the matrix....see that most of what we view as "truths" are actually not what it appears to be.

    This audio book of Don Miguel Ruiz 's "The Voice of Knowledge: A Practical Guide to Inner Peace". It is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! He explores the moment self-judgement entered the world (Adam and Eve) and offers a refreshing prospective on our lives in relation to ourselves, others and God. This book is HIGHLY recommended. The audio version is fantastic. The narrator has such a soothing voice...you could listen to it for hours. Check it out and be MOVED!!! Be blessed and remember you are Perfect because you were created in God's image and HE is PERFECT!

    "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.
