Don Miguel Ruiz quotes page 2

If we see a child who is two or three, perhaps four years old, we find a free human. Why is 
this human free? Because this human does whatever he or she wants to do... And if we
observe humans who are two years old, we find that most of the time these humans have a
big smile on their face and they're having fun. They are exploring the world. They are not
afraid to play.
Don Miguel Ruiz

Wherever you go you will find people lying to you, and as your awareness grows, you will
notice that you also lie to yourself. Do not expect people to tell you the truth because they
also lie to themselves.
Don Miguel Ruiz

You don't need to justify your love, you don't need to explain your love, you just need to
practice your love. Practice creates the master.
Don Miguel Ruiz

Awareness is something that is very important. And you say that it looks impossible to
become what we really are, to be authentic, to be ourselves again. But I will tell you that it
is much more difficult to try to be what we are not.
Don Miguel Ruiz

The more self-love we have, the less we will experience self-abuse. Self-abuse comes from
self-rejection, and self-rejection comes from having an image of what is means to be perfect
and never measuring up to that ideal.
Don Miguel Ruiz

Your reactions are the key to having a wonderful life. If you can learn to control your own
reactions, then you can change your routines, and you can change your life.
Don Miguel Ruiz

And what is the right woman, the right man? Someone who wants to go in the same direction
as you do, someone who is compatible with your views and your values - emotionally,
physically, economically, spiritually.
Don Miguel Ruiz

Everything in existence is a manifestation of the one living being we call God. Everything is 
God.
Don Miguel Ruiz

Your love will not change anybody. If others change, it's because they want to change, not
because you can change them.
Don Miguel Ruiz

These are the happiest moments of your life - when the real you comes out, when you don't
care about the past and you don't worry about the future. You are childlike.
Don Miguel Ruiz

Be skeptical, but learn to listen.
Don Miguel Ruiz

The way you see the world will depend upon the emotions you are feeling. When you are
angry, everything around you is wrong, nothing is right. You blame everything, including the
weather; whether it's raining or the sun is shining, nothing pleases you. When you are sad,
everything around you is sad and makes you cry.
Don Miguel Ruiz

If you can see yourself as an artist, and you can see that your life is your own creation, then
why not create the most beautiful story for yourself?
Don Miguel Ruiz

Even the opinions you have about yourself are not necessarily true; therefore, you don't
need to take whatever you hear in your own mind personally. The mind has the ability to talk
to itself, but it also has the ability to hear information that is available from other realms.
Don Miguel Ruiz

You are the only one who can change your story, and you do this by changing your
relationship with yourself.
Don Miguel Ruiz

Be impeccable with your word... Use the word to share your love. Use white magic, beginning
with yourself. Tell yourself how wonderful you are, how great you are. Tell yourself how much
you love yourself.
Don Miguel Ruiz

Just to be, to take a risk and enjoy your life, is all that matters.
Don Miguel Ruiz

We dishonor ourselves just to please other people. We even do harm to our physical bodies
just to be accepted by others. You see teenagers taking drugs just to avoid being rejected
by other teenagers. They are not aware that the problem is that they don't accept
themselves. They reject themselves because they are not what they pretend to be.
Don Miguel Ruiz

Humans 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

Just do your best - in any circumstance in your life. It doesn't matter if you are sick or tired,
if you always do your best there is no way you can judge yourself. And if you don't judge
yourself there is no way you are going to suffer from guilt, blame, and self-punishment.
Don Miguel Ruiz

Don't take anything personally because by taking things personally you set yourself up to
suffer for nothing.
Don Miguel Ruiz

All the sadness and drama you have lived in your life was rooted in making assumptions and
taking things personally. Take a moment to consider the truth of this statement.
Don Miguel Ruiz

Every human is an artist. And this is the main art that we have: the creation of our story.
Don Miguel Ruiz

The best path to happiness is learning to change as rapidly as life does.
Don Miguel Ruiz

To adopt the Four Agreements, you need to put repetition in action. Practicing the new
agreements in your life is how your best becomes better. Repetition makes the master.
Don Miguel Ruiz

If someone is not treating you with love and respect, it is a gift if they walk away from you. 
If that person doesn't walk away, you will surely endure many years of suffering with him or
her. Walking away may hurt for a while, but your heart will eventually heal. Then you can
choose what you really want. You will find that you don't need to trust others as much as
you need to trust yourself to make the right choices.
Don Miguel Ruiz

True justice is paying only once for each mistake. True injustice is paying more than once for
each mistake.
Don Miguel Ruiz

Your life is the manifestation of your dream; it is an art. And you can change your life
anytime if you aren't enjoying the dream.
Don Miguel Ruiz
