“If one hundred people perceive the same event, you hear one hundred different stories, and everybody claims that his or her story is the true story. Of course, it’s only true for that person, and your story is only true for you. But the voice of knowledge starts searching for everything in your mind to make yourself right. You even look for allies from the outside to join you in your crusade to be right and to make the other person wrong. Why try to justify what you believe? You don’t need to make others wrong because you already know that in their story they are right. In your story, you are right. Then being right or wrong is over; you no longer have to defend what you believe.
When we reach this level of awareness, it is easier not to take what other people say personally. We know that every human around us is a story-teller, and that everyone distorts the truth.”
Don Miguel Ruiz, in “The Voice of Knowledge”
