“If your beliefs are telling you, “I’m fat. I’m ugly. I’m old. I’m a loser. I’m not good enough. I’m not strong enough. I’ll never make it,” then don’t believe yourself, because it’s not true. These messages are distorted. They’re nothing but lies. Once you can see the lies, you don’t have to believe them. Use the power of doubt to challenge every message that you deliver to yourself. “Is it really true that I’m ugly? Is it really true that I’m not good enough?” Is this message real, or is it virtual? Of course it’s virtual. None of these messages come from the truth, from life; they come from distortions in our knowledge. The truth is, there are no ugly people. There is no good enough or strong enough. There’s no universal book of law where any of these judgments are true. These judgments are just agreements that humans make.”

~don Miguel Ruiz & don Jose Ruiz, “The Fifth Agreement”

To be aware means to open our eyes to see everything just as it is, not the way we believe it is, not the way we wish it to be. Awareness opens the door to millions of possibilities, and if we know that we are the artists of our own life, we can make a choice from all those possibilities.

The Fifth Agreement: A practical guide to self-mastery

When you awake, you cross a line of no return, and you never see the world in the same way. You are still dreaming—because you cannot avoid dreaming, because dreaming is the function of the mind–but the difference is that you know it’s a dream.


You have all our love.

Seeing is total awareness in the present moment. To use that awareness to control the story we tell about ourselves is our greatest act of power as humans.

If you don’t feel God’s presence, you need to detach from the story because the only thing between you and God is your story.

You are neither the physical body nor the story. The story is your creation, and, believe it or not, your physical body is also your creation because what you really are is that force of life.


You have all our love.
