Format: Paperback
Days after finishing the new offering from don Miguel Ruiz and Janet Mills, I found the essence of its meaning reaffirmed time and again, and frequently "heard" the teaching in the middle of daily issues or challenges. Just like the wonderful "Four Agreements", this book presents valuable lessons for practical use with everyday living.
We learn in Chapter One that the "Voice of Knowledge" is not a benevolent one, but the incessant chattering that humans unconsciously perpetuate daily, the "...voice in our head. You can call it thinking. I call it the voice of knowledge." (Ch. 1) Ruiz' descriptions of his grandfather's teachings are an immediate wonderful antidote to the wearying Voice of Knowledge that we so often succumb to. His words are beautiful encouragement to rediscover the wonder of childhood. One of his great lines sticks with me: "Faith is the power of creation that all humans have, and it doesn't have anything to do with religion." He goes on to describe the difference between having faith in one's own goodness versus believing the lies of others who might convince us we're not good enough or smart enough.
The realizations that Ruiz experiences in Chapter 4, A Night in the Desert, are an inspiring description of one mind grasping the Truth of the Ages. His account of experiencing the universe experiencing him is an eloquent and understandable report of an epiphany that's a joy to read. I call page 47 the "truth page". Soon after this exhilarating evening in the desert, we learn about the "Storyteller", the essence of the Voice of Lies that pervades our consciousness all too often. I think "storyteller" is an apt term for that demon we all wrestle with - Little mind, monkeymind, maya, etc. etc.

Format: Paperback
This is a perfect companion to "The Four Agreements." I just finished this and I can't wait to read it again. There are stories from the authors past, explaining his journey, and making this book wonderfully personal. The book discusses how to not listen to that voice within us that causes us so much drama and pain. How to forget, and change our 'programming', the domestication, and the lies that have permeated our lives. The book even breifly goes back over The Four Agreements. This book is truely a must have. It, like all his other books, are a gift from above. They leave you feeling incredible and the more that they are read, the greater the message becomes. I know that I have said that in other reviews of Ruiz's books, but it is the truth and it is worthy of repeating.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Jamieson Villeneuve TOP 1000 REVIEWER on April 28 2009
Format: Paperback
From the moment we are born, we are told how to behave, how to act, what is wrong, what is right. We are told what to wear, what not to wear, how to act, how to behave, how to interact with others. What we are taught forms our view of the world around us.

As we grow up, everything we are told becomes a voice inside of our heads. It is the voice of knowledge: the voice that tells us what is right, what is wrong. It repeats what we were taught, what we hold as truth. Unfortunately, this leads to negative thoughts. I am not perfect; I am not the way I should be. This line of thinking is wrong.

Don Miguel Ruiz, author of the phenomenally best selling book "The Four Agreements" and "The Four Agreements Companion Book" shows us that we are all born perfect, so how could we be otherwise. Following the teachings of an ancient people named the Toltec, Ruiz teaches us a path to inner peace.

The Toltec were "men and woman of knowledge." The Toltec were artists and scientists "who formed a society to explore and conserve the spiritual knowledge of the ancient ones." Ruiz has brought their teachings into the mainstream and many, including Oprah Winfrey, are drawn to the wisdom of the Toltec.

At first, I was a little sceptical of the book's core message: Once we learn a language, the people around us hook our attention and program us with knowledge. This knowledge is filled with lies. In order to achieve inner peace, we must not listen to these lies. All right, I was more than a little sceptical. I mean, it couldn't be that easy, could it?

This book started me on a personal journey that will continue for some time, I think. There is a lot to take in here, a lot to digest, but it all rings true. I found myself reading this book going "Exactly!

This book touched me deeply. I have read the Four Agreements and loved it, but this book really spoke to my heart in a language that felt so right for me. I have bought this book for all my loved ones, telling them that it is a beautifully written book about love. Love yourself and read this book.

This book is amazing. Its full of practical common sense AND universal truths. The ideas, however, go past the chattering voice of the mind and into the wisdom of the heart. This is a soul-comforting and enlightening book. Thank you don Miguel Ruiz!

Don Miguel Ruiz is a very smart man and he writes very simply about the most important things for better lives! In "Voice of Knowledge" he really makes us fully understand what Toltects really stand for! He gives us some brilliant ideas on how can we lead a lot more better lives then we are now. He writes about "The Voice of Knowledge" which in truth is our inner voice or as Don likes to refer to it, The Liar.
He is so right when he recommends to us that if our inner voice is our verbal abuser and says negative things about us - we should learn to totally ignore it or at least not believe what it says to us.
Then...what I liked the most about the book is regarding the "Nobody's Perfect"! Well if you're one of those who still believe that nobody or nothing's perfect then read this book and you'll never get to feel that way again.
After all, this book is wonderful by all means and in my opinion I think every person should read it. As there's something for everyone in it.
Highly Recommended
