Just imagine becoming the way you used to be as a very young child, before you understood the meaning of any word, before opinions took over your mind. The real you is loving, joyful, and free. The real you is just like a flower, just like the wind, just like the ocean, just like the sun.

— Miguel Angel Ruiz

The most vibrant Miguel Angel Ruiz quotes that are proven to give you inner joy

Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.


Humans believe so many lies because we aren’t aware.

We ignore the truth or we just don’t see the truth. When we are educated, we accumulate a lot of knowledge, and all that knowledge is just like a wall of fog that doesn’t allow us to perceive the truth, what really is.


The way you react has been repeated thousands of times, and it has become a routine for you. You are conditioned to be a certain way. And that is the challenge: to change your normal reactions, to change your routine, to take a risk and make different choices.


Just being ourselves is the biggest fear of humans.

We have learned to live our life trying to satisfy other people's demands. We have learned to live by other people's points of view because of the fear of not being accepted and of not being good enough for someone else.


Death is not the biggest fear we have;

our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive - the risk to be alive and express what we really are.


Always Do Your Best. Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.


The real us is pure love, pure light


We only see what we want to see; we only hear what we want to hear. Our belief system is just like a mirror that only shows us what we believe.


Whatever life takes away from you, let it go.


Children are born innocent. Before they are domesticated they live in the moment, love without fear, and don't even think about the opinions of others.


When you love without conditions, you the human and you the God, align with the spirit of life moving through you.


You don't need to change the world; you need to change yourself.
