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. Download and start listening now!

    " Wow! I loved this one even more than The Four Agreements. It reiterated all four of the agreements, and reminded me that we are all creators of our stories. So great! It makes me want to re-read The Four Agreements and then this one again just to practice the principals! I highly recommend it to everyone! "

    " Some powerful points - some of it a little repetitive. Overall, if you can buy this book cheap on Amazon it really helped me. Even though I only gave it three stars, I'd say either this or "Four Agreements" should be a must-read for anyone interested in personal growth/development/happiness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alicia | 2/2/2014

    " This is a great book. It helps that I have already read "The Mastery of Love" and "The Four Agreements," but I think it would be fine to read this one first if you don't have the others. The thing I like about already being familiar with this author is the way I was able to start putting into practice his ideas. When I first read his other books I thought that his ideas made sense, but I didn't realize until reading this time that I hadn't started putting them into practice. Now I am finding it very enjoyable to try to incorporate his ideas into my life. I am even reading "The Four Agreements" for a second time just to help remind me. I can see a positive force in my life and feeling very happy. Just by changing my frame of mind I have achieved a better outlook on life. I've heard of people doing this, but it took reading this book for the idea to really take shape in my mind. "

    " I don't agree with his premise that Satan lives in the tree of knowledge in our minds or that knowledge is bad & my life is actually a dream BUT he had some great points about how we listen to the part of ourselves that tells us how awful we are & how we believe it even though it's a lie. This book really makes you think about what you are thinking & points out that we need to respect ourselves & love ourselves & not poison ourselves or those around us with self-hatred. Though his religious beliefs & ideas are different, there are some valuable truths in this book. It gives a different perspective. Sometimes his writing is confusing & goes in circles but you get the idea. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Patricia | 1/16/2014

    " I really enjoyed the 4 Agreements, so I thought this book would have the same kind of impact. I really didn't believe what the author was saying in this book. I have taken philosophy courses that have introduced the same kind of topics, and I just don't agree with it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lucy Vazquez | 1/15/2014

    " I have a lot of lies and poison in my mind. I desperately need to change my thinking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natasha | 12/13/2013

    " A continuance of the four agreements, it expounds upon many of the the things he wrote about in The Four Agreements. Very good read, full of good medicine for the soul. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 caroline | 11/1/2013

    " this book is a great reminder for me to turn down the self-criticism. it is very well written and of much more value than other books claiming to help people's thinking (the secre- ahem). ruiz comes from a solid tradition and his logic is always helpful. highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan D. | 2/24/2012

    " The first one was better. The four agreements. This was alright. Just my personal opinion. This toltec wisdom stuff is definitely off the hook though. "

    " 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!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gerald | 7/25/2010

    " I liken Mr. Ruiz's "The Voice of Knowledge" to a mountain meadow. It provided me new and meaningful insights into peace, wisdom and love. Any attempt on my part to summarize would do nothing more than trivialize his message. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Felice | 4/26/2010

    " It teaches you to unlearn and relearn how to reconnect with your authentic self including the author's own life stories as examples. A little too new age at times, if you don't "get" this stuff, I wouldn't recommend it to you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eileen | 2/25/2010

    " He speaks of the innocence of toddlers and their love of play. Encourages you to be more playful and adhere to the four agreements. "

    " Listened to it on audio and plan to listen again... hope to like it more the second time around. I really liked The Four Agreements by the same author, but can't say that I got much more out of this one... perhaps I've already got th einner peace I was seeking. :) "

    " A lot like The Four Agreements "

    " Fantastic. If only everyone could take hold of this concept and embrace it - we would indeed be living in heaven on earth and doing nothing but enjoying our own personal stories, and allowing others to enjoy the perfect creation of theirs. A blissful concept that I will try to embrace. "
