    Nothing new here, but some good reminders all the same.FAVOURITE QUOTE: “I don’t need to justify my love. I love you because this is my pleasure. Love coming out of me makes me happy, and it’s not important if you reject me because I don’t reject myself. In my story, I live in an ongoing romance, and everything is beautiful for me.” [p. 166]

    this book makes me realize how inadequate my words are in so many ways. specifically, any review i can give would pale in comparison to how this book makes me feel and what it makes me realize.all my life, i have prided myself on being 'smart'. i have been proud of what i know. and lately, i have had a strong awareness of how little i truly know. this book confirms another lesson that i have been learning - my 'knowledge' is frequently a lot of lies & assumptions. and my clinging to it causes me suffering in so many ways.not only do i not have to know, i don't have to be right, nor do i always need to talk or even have an opinion about something.and the voice in my head that rambles on incessantly, trying to rationalize everything, explain it all, make sense of it all, and KNOW everything... i'm working on shutting that voice the hell up.that voice makes me second guess my joy, my love, and my integrity. when my heart has joy, that's what i should trust. when i don't have joy, i need to find out why and fix whatever the problem is.this book actually gave me a rational explanation for meditation. and funny enough, the rationalization is what i'm looking to let go of. i'll read it again in a few months or so and i'm sure i'll get something different out of it then.

    A great spiritual book, that guides you towards going beyond identification with your mind, ego, and false beliefs. Ruiz calls the ego mind the "storyteller," and he points out it is telling lies. The book helps tame this voice in your head. The author also describes his own spiritual journey and awakening, where he reencountered love, returned to common sense, and regained his own authenticity.The book is great for overcoming negative thoughts, and false limiting beliefs: so you can move from fear based states of being based in lies, towards love based states of being based on truth. It guides you towards being authentic, instead of pretending to be what you are not.The author tells that we are born in truth, but then grow up to believe in lies and he says one of the biggest lies is the belief in our own imperfection. He describes, how the real you is full of love.I recommend this book, since the spiritual truth and reality Ruiz describes is aligned with what I encountered, by grace, in my own spiritual awakening experience. Our true nature is incredible.

    A very short and sweet story that really knows how to pack a punch. One that makes you sit up and think anyways. Certainly it's one that will help you retain your consciousness when you're making decisions. Because ultimately, it's all about conscious choice. Not always an easy thing to be aware of. It's really about trying to learn to be in the now and accepting who you really are without assessing yourself and others by seeing through jaded eyes. This book isn't a one time read either. I think you'll get the most out of it by keeping it as a bedside reminder. Reinforcement is a good thing!

    Another gem for my treasure chest of books! Real clarity on the four agreements, in ways that are so perfect! I'm blessed to have been able to read this series of books. I think it is the ultimate on wisdom and will be a factor in the authentic life that I am having, so i can be happy without needing a reason to be. I want my beloveds to read this book. I hope to plant the seeds in my family because life is too amazing to be anything but unhappy! This is not a self help book, and yet, it is a true tool for living.

    The Voice of KnowledgeThe Voice of Knowledge is a non-fiction book by Don Miguel Ruiz. This book is mainly about how to stop believing lies that we believe and tell ourselves. It’s a guide to change the way we perceive ourselves and change the way we look at others. The purpose of this book is to take us back to the way we perceived the world when we were two years old. This book begins with teaching the reader that we have our own Tree of Knowledge which is our personal belief system; it’s based on the Toltec wisdom. Toltecs were a nation of scientists and artists who formed a society based on spiritual knowledge in Southern Mexico, that was passed onto a thousand years worth of lineages of naguals. Don Miguel Ruiz is a nagual from the Eagle Night lineage and created this book because it was finally time to share their teachings with the readers. They were expected to shield their knowledge from anyone who could have miss used it for personal gain or kept from those who weren't prepared to use it wisely. The Tree of Knowledge allows us to gather information and begin to judge a situation. It lets us determine what is right and wrong, good or bad. It allows us to go through a variety of stages that allow us to think about the lies we tell ourselves all the time and that we are better than what out Tree of Knowledge tell us who we are. It’s our human mind against the truth. It’s a quest to conquer the authenticity of how we are without lies and self- doubt. I believe that the Toltec wisdom is very useful, it makes the reader really take inconsideration they way one has been living and what actions they can take to move forward after reading this book. We base things on what we have already seen and we reflect back on past experiences when we are trying to figure out how to perceive a situation or just to realize who we are. In comparison to this book I think we have our morals set up wrong, this book helps one realize the way we should perceive the world.This is a great and impacting book overall; it makes one eager to want to keep reading and want to know how erasing the lies in our life will really impact the way you perceive yourself and others. It also shows you how to love again, to realize what the truth really is, and how to be happy in a genuine way. If you’re trying to figure out who you are as a person, then this book would be a great example. It’ll take you into a journey of realization

    not a bad read but he repeats himself a lot to try and make a point.for a book as the title implies should be the less said the more is said.

    "The way to transform what you believe about yourself is to unlearn what you have already learned. When you unlearn, your faith returns to you, your personal power increases, and you can invest your faith in new beliefs.""The best way to write your story is with love. Love is the material that comes directly from your integrity, from what you really are.""When you enjoy the presence of yourself, you love yourself not because of the way you are, but because of what you are. The more you love yourself, the more you enjoy your life, and the more you enjoy the presence of everyone around you."

    The lies in our story are not important. "WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS TO ENJOY OUR TIME IN THIS REALITY, TO LIVE IN HAPPINESS WHILE WE ARE ALIVE." There is no reason for our life to be controlled by fear and lies. This book is a MUST READ. Not the type of book you want to read quickly but the type you want to take your time reading to soak up all the knowledge it has to offer. This book makes me view life a lot differently. During this read I had many moments of clarity.. it opened my eyes and it felt like a fog was lifted. It made life, and God, and people make sense. This is the type of book I think everyone should have on their book shelf. 5 STARS FOR SURE.

    If it's true that to effect the revolution "you've got to free your mind instead" as John Lennon said, then this book is a worthy place to begin. It offers a brief reprise of his first book The Four Agreements toward the end that sheds a helpful perspective on those agreements. This book is a tonic that hopefully will seep into the veins of us all.

    Just finished this up in two days. Many of the words echo his past works, many are new perspectives, including one on the Adam and Eve story that I found a bit compelling. You just go away from Ruiz's works feeling lighter and more alive.

    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.

    I found this book to be much less useful than The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom . In this book the author seems to somewhat be making a cash grab based on previous success. The main reason I am saying this is that this book doesn't feel like its filled with love as did The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom. Also the book seems to say only one thing: that people create stories that are interpretations of reality and not reality. Hearing variations of that incessantly throughout the book made me feel like the author didn't have enough material for a book but wrote one anyway. There were sparklings of positive/loving messages throughout the book. Maybe I am just too jaded, but they didn't counter the overall vibe this book had for me.

    I am intrigued by the concept where Ruiz states: everything we know is a projection of our perception and internalization of socialization. His analogy of comparing a painter’s art piece to our brain’s projection was amazing.While reading this book, I was going over a unit about internal dialogue in my Speech Communication class…and the subject resonated well. In fact, I recommended it to my students as suggested reading. However, I didn’t like that Ruiz kept referring to our internal dialogue as “lies.” Perhaps he was referring to "mind chatter" and "quieting the mind." But "lies" was a strong word. I agree that we need to produce positive impressions of ourselves, but what about self-improvement?I did not have a chance to finish the book and perhaps will check it out again another time. But somehow, overusing the word “lies,” kept me from wanting to turn the page.

    I struggled with this book more than his others because he used such heavy Judeo-Christian imagery, and kept using the word "knowledge" like it was a bad thing/full of lies. I tried to see past that and found some kernels of wisdom. I think the basic idea he's trying to convey is that we are born innocent, and then as we grow up we are socialized and taught about how to behave, etc., which turns us into different people than our true authentic selves. My only problem with this idea is that he seems to think all social norms are bad and "lies," but in reality without socialization/social norms, without rules, humans easily turn feral on one another. But I still grok the idea that social norms can also be warped by fear, the lies we tell ourselves, etc. and cause us to lead inauthentic lives.

    In this book, Mr. Ruiz delves into how we, as humans, have fallen victim to the negative inner voice that tells us we’re not good enough; strong enough; beautiful enough; or valuable enough. He talks of how we fall prey to believing that voice, and the voices of those in our external world, making us feel that we are not enough. This is an enlightening book that offers suggestions for silencing the inner negative voices that can often do more harm than good. This is a good read for anyone who wants to begin the process of rewriting their own “story” by taking the necessary steps to paint their own picture of their world as they want to see it. Definitely a thought-provoking read.

    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.

    If you are not at all religious, if you are an atheist, you might want to find something else to read. There is a lot of "God stuff" here and that could make the content something you struggle with, something that is distracting to the point of irritation.I've rated this book so low because it really felt like an indulgent re-telling of The Four Agreements; there isn't much new here.I really struggled to stay interested.

    Excellent wisdom to end our emotional suffering and restore our faith, confidence and joy. Everything the others think about us is just an image in their thoughts. Everyone builds an image for each person in their lives. This book shows us the way to recover our pristine conception, our faith in the truth and return to our own nature..

    Many nuggets of truth here. You cannot fake what you feel. Love makes you strong. “I don’t need to justify my love. I love you because this is my pleasure. Love coming out of me makes me happy, and it’s not important if you reject me because I don’t reject myself. In my story, I live in an ongoing romance, and everything is beautiful for me.” You choose how you will view the world and your place in it. Our real nature is to explore, to love, to be authentic.

    Everyone should read this book.Eventhough it is talking about what some of us already know and feel, it makes you realize it even more.Also, his interpretation of Adam and Eve story is truly compelling. It made me think about it from a perspective I have never thought about. Thank you!This is one of the books I will read several times.♡

    I listened to this on audiobook, and it felt like the perfect way to take in Don Miguel Ruiz’s simple wisdom. There’s a liar that lives inside us - judgmental thoughts, self-doubt - ego. And we can choose to connect to Truth instead. This book makes that idea feel real, possible, and so appealing.

    This wasn't my cup of tea. I found it extremely repetitive, filled with religious references which didn't made much sense to me and with the exception of a few sentences lacking useful content.
