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. The authors do a fine job of offsetting the depressing strength and pervasiveness of Storyteller with thoughtful conversation about faith and intent. Suggestions for transforming the storyteller, and the beautiful descriptions of love, wrap this valuable book up and leave one with a sense of relief and anticipation - this world is full of beauty, hope and possibility.
If you're interested in this book, chances are you gravitate towards inspirational reading. We've all read books that promise great healing, wisdom and illumination, but not all deliver on their grand guarantee. The litmus test of a true work of useful wisdom is whether the material is applicable in mundane, real-world situations. I've had a dozen instances of hearing the words of "The Voice of Knowledge" in everyday situations in my life, and a month later, I return to re-read my favorite parts just for the fortification. The ancient wisdom to be learned from the worlds' great Speakers is here, portrayed in a relevant, and sometimes lyrical, manner.
It is through learning AND believing the real truth about who we are as Divine beings, that we find our way back to the Tree of Life in the Garden. There we eat the fruit of Life itself. Ultimately, we become true Angels (which means "messengers") and our message is one of absolute unconditional love.
In the chapter near the end called "Opening Our Spiritual Eyes" don Miguel writes: "When you open your spiritual eyes, the first thing you say is 'I am with God and the angels. I am in heaven, in paradise, where everything is so beautiful. . .there is no place for fear or suffering. It's just beautiful.'"
This beauty would seem to be our true legacy here as humans in this beautiful garden. When we open our spiritual eyes, we have a chance to perceive directly all the beauty that is here, without judgement or resistance to the Truth.
I urge you to read this book (and the others by Miguel Ruiz) if your desire is to feel more connected to Life, to feel empowered to create your life the way you want it, to know your own precious Divinity and perfection, and to be always happy.
Don't miss this chance to re-claim the truth of who you really are, and live in Heaven on Earth !!
This wonderful book will help you shatter the judgment, self-recrimination, and denial of your greatest attributes that you have taken on from others, and have even learned to deny within your own self.
The only truth is that which you were born with. Don Miguel Ruiz helps you to re-connect to the Divine attributes and qualities that you DO hold within, despite what other's tell you, and despite what you may have `learned' to tell yourself.
This book will help you open up to the wondrous being you are, so you can align with your OWN truth, soar in your life, unattached to outcomes, and love yourself in the joy-filled process you deserve.
Highly recommended for anyone who wants to claim his or her authentic self.

The Voice of Knowledge doesn't dazzle at the beginning. It does have some fluff to open with, but as with his other books, the narrative progresses into crystal clarity, almost completely free of superfluous elements. Thankfully Ruiz never falls into the abyss of misusing the New Age vocabulary as a substitute for real content. The focus is a little more autobiographical, and one of its most engaging aspects is that the whole thing reads like a story, even where the biographical elements are not the focus. This alone makes it an exceptional piece on Ruiz's part.
But more compelling to me is that somewhere along the way--I can't place where--I found the narrative prodded something in me, stirred it up something fierce. The ideas in The Four Agreements have been incredibly useful to me in recent years, but few things have had the ability to really stir something up in my psyche as this work has.
I'll note that I generally loathe inspirational works, as their usual purpose is to make you feel good and leave you with very little real benefit. The Voice of Knowledge is a rare work that finds that perfect balance between theory, practicality, and inspiration--inspiration that exhilarates and engages rather than that which merely placates.
The material covered by the book makes perfect sense and he is bound to offer advice that will resonate with those practicing Buddhism as well as those into Christian religions. However, after a while, he begins to repeat himself and go back to elements mentioned earlier in the book, which renders the book a bit longer than necessary past the second half. Though I enjoyed it, I struggled to finish it. All in all, it's very good, but the book can easily be a third shorter and it would work just as well.
