“When you speak openly and honestly, you won’t have to make assumptions. The day you stop making assumptions, you will communicate cleanly and clearly, and achieve impeccability with your word.”

—don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements

“Your word is the power that you have to create; it is a gift that comes directly from God.”

—don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements

“You are alive, so take your life and enjoy it. You were born with the right to be happy, to love, and to share your love. Just to be—to take a risk and enjoy your life—is all that matters.”

—don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements

“Impeccability of the word can lead you to personal freedom, success, and abundance. You can attain the kingdom of heaven from this one agreement: Be impeccable with your word.”

—don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements

“[The fifth agreement is] Be skeptical, but learn to listen. Don’t believe yourself or anybody else. Use the power of doubt to question everything you hear: Is it really the truth? Listen to the intent behind words, and you will understand the real message.”

—don Miguel Ruiz, The Fifth Agreement

“Be skeptical is masterful because it uses the power of doubt to discern the truth. The doubt takes you behind the words, and makes you responsible for every message you deliver and receive.”

—don Miguel Ruiz, The Fifth Agreement

 “The second half of the fifth agreement is learn to listen, and the reason is simple: When you learn to listen, you understand the meaning of the words that people are using; you understand their story, and the communication improves a lot.”

 —don Miguel Ruiz, The Fifth Agreement

“Be skeptical, but learn to listen. If you understand this fifth agreement, you will see the reason why you don’t need to believe what you can see, what you already know without words. The truth doesn’t come with words. The truth is silent.”

 —don Miguel Ruiz, The Fifth Agreement

You are here to enjoy life. You are not here to suffer over your drama or your personal importance. It’s not you; it doesn’t belong to your presence. You are here to be a dreamer, to be an artist, to be a seer.”

 —don Miguel Ruiz, The Fifth Agreement

Many masters have said that every mind is a world, and it’s true. The world we think we see outside of us is actually inside of us. It’s just images in our imagination. It’s a dream.”

 —don Miguel Ruiz, The Fifth Agreement

 “You were programmed to deliver a message, and the creation of that message is your greatest art. What is the message? Your life.”

 —don Miguel Ruiz, The Fifth Agreement

Deepak Chopra

“When you discover your essential nature and know who you really are, in that knowing itself is the ability to fulfill any dream you have, because you are the eternal possibility, the immeasurable potential of all that was, is, and will be.”

—Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

“The ego is your self-image; it is your social mask; it is the role you are playing. Your social mask thrives on approval. It wants to control, and it is sustained by power, because it lives in fear. Your true Self, which is your spirit, your soul, is completely free of those things. It is immune to criticism, it is unfearful of any challenge, and it feels beneath no one. And yet, it is also humble and feels superior to no one, because it recognizes that everyone else is the same Self, the same spirit in different disguises.”

—Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

“You must learn to get in touch with the innermost essence of your being. This true essence is beyond the ego. It is fearless; it is free; it is immune to criticism; it does not fear any challenge. It is beneath no one, superior to no one, and full of magic, mystery, and enchantment.”

—Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

“Wherever you go in the midst of movement and activity, carry your stillness within you. Then the chaotic movement around you will never overshadow your access to the reservoir of creativity, the field of pure potentiality.”

—Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

Jane Roberts

“We are gods couched in creaturehood, given the ability to form our experience as our thoughts and feelings become actualized.”

—Jane Roberts, The Nature of Personal Reality

“What exists physically exists first in thought and feeling. There is no other rule.”

—Jane Roberts, The Nature of Personal Reality

“If you do not like your experience, then you must change the nature of your conscious thoughts and expectations. You must alter the kind of messages that you are sending through your thoughts to your own body, to friends and associates.”

—Jane Roberts, The Nature of Personal Reality

“Matter is formed by those inner qualities that give it vitality, that structure follows expectation, that matter at any time can be completely changed by the activation of the creative faculties inherent in all consciousness.”

—Jane Roberts, The Nature of Personal Reality

“The living picture of the world grows within the mind. The world as it appears to you is like a three dimensional painting in which each individual takes a hand. Each color, each line that appears within it has first been painted within a mind, and only then does it materialize without. In this case, however, the artists themselves are a portion of the painting, and appear within it. There is no effect in the exterior world that does not spring from an inner source. There is no motion that does not first occur within the mind. The great creativity of consciousness is your heritage.”

—Jane Roberts, The Nature of Personal Reality

“You project your thoughts, feelings, and expectation outward, then you perceive them as the outside reality. When it seems to you that others are observing you, you are observing yourself from the standpoint of your own projections.”

—Jane Roberts, The Nature of Personal Reality

“You are the living picture of yourself. You project what you think you are outward into flesh. Your feelings, your conscious and unconscious thoughts, all alter and form your physical image.”

—Jane Roberts, The Nature of Personal Reality

“The physical body can only react in the present moment. Worrying about future events, or dwelling upon past unfavorable situations, only confuses the body’s mechanisms, and undermines their precise activity in the present moment.

—Jane Roberts, The Way Toward Health

Do not think of the mind as a purely mental entity, and of the body as a purely physical one. Instead, think of both mind and body as continuing, interweaving processes that are mental and physical at once. Your thoughts actually are quite as physical as your body is, and your body is quite as nonphysical as it seems to you your thoughts are. You are actually a vital force, existing as a part of your environment, and yet apart from your environment at the same time.

—Jane Roberts, The Way Toward Health

“You cannot see the wind directly—you see only its effects. The same applies to your thoughts. They possess power as the wind does, but you only see the effects of their actions.”

—Jane Roberts, The Way Toward Health

“You cannot learn about yourself by studying what is expected of you by others—but only by asking yourself what you expect of yourself, and discovering for yourself in what direction your abilities lie.”

—Jane Roberts, The Way Toward Health
