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 a language, the people around us hook our attention and program us with knowledge. But that knowledge is contaminated with lies.
With our attention focused on all the knowledge in our head, we no longer perceive the world through the eyes of love; we only perceive what we have learned to believe. 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.
Ruiz changes the way we perceive ourselves, and the way we perceive other people. Then he opens the door to a reality that we once perceived when we were one and two years old — a reality of truth, love, and joy.
“We are born in truth, but we grow up believing in lies. . . . One of the biggest lies in the story of humanity is the lie of our imperfection.” — don Miguel Ruiz

Though, this book is more in-depth and does touch on the Four Agreements towards the end with Be Impeccable With Your Words. Don’t Take Things Personally, Don’t Make Assumptions and Always Do Your Best.
The book is a good read, making us aware that the voice we have in our heads, those negative voices about ourselves, the ones that makes us think we are not good enough or those that bombard us with confusion preventing us to move forward are just lies.
It is an eye opener for those not aware of these voices and to make changes to better yourself.
I find the Points to Ponder Section he has on each of its Chapters useful and something I hope I will learn to make a difference to my life.
