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.

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!!!

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.

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.

Book was a good play on religion

This book expounds heavily on biblical stories and symbolism its a treat for a reader if you're heavy into religious literature

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.'

Life Changing!

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.

Amazing

Would you listen to The Voice of Knowledge again? Why?

Absolutely! In fact I've listened more than 3 times already and every time I listen it deepens my understanding to the next level

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Voice of Knowledge?

Being able to differentiate the knowledge and wisdom.

What does Peter Coyote bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

It makes me feel like someone's actually talking to you rather than you're listening an audio book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh yes, I just couldn't stop.

Any additional comments?

Absolutely love all the books by Don Miguel Ruiz

Wow loved it

Absolutely loved it! So resonant. Highly recommend it to anyone seeking freedom, truth or personal power. This book is the best book I have ever heard for truthfulness. I am so blessed and grateful. And I finally understand the first agreement, be impeccable with your word.

This book puts me back into a blissful, highly loving state!

Amazing!
