Ever since my parents divorced, in a very acrimonious action, when I was 16 years old, I’ve been searching for something beyond what they tried to teach me. Over the years, I’ve come to call it the “Universal Truth” – a point where all religion and philosophy agreed.
This Universal Truth has eluded me. It always felt that I was just on the verge of discovering it, but somehow was just out of reach. I’ve studied Sigmund Freud, Emanuel Khant, every major religion extant on the earth, and the teachings of any extinct religion I could find. My studies included Richard Bach, Jed McKenna, Dr. Zhi Ghan Sha, Deepak Chopra, Eckhart Tolle, Michael Talbot, and Dan Millman – just to name a few.
Never did I feel I’d come close to what I sought, until my dear friend and spiritual sister Anita suggested that I read one particular book. That book is titled “The Voice of Knowledge” by don Miguel Ruiz. His book is based on the ancient wisdom of the Toltecs, but unlike any of the other books I’ve read, it is written so simply, so clearly, that a grade-school student with a good vocabulary and the understanding of using a dictionary could comprehend it.
I read half of the book in one evening. While I was doing so, I quickly came to the realization that I would not only recommend it to others (which I’m doing now), but that I will definitely read it many more times. This is spiritual GOLD. If you haven’t read it, and have any interest in personal self-improvement, this book is a MUST.
