If there are words that are not mentioned often enough are “Thank you,” Wayne Dyer said it every morning. He thanked life every morning at wee hours when all was calm, or so he said. At the beginning of the movie “The Shift,” he does this and starts his day meditating on life and his main purpose, to find inner peace and share what he learned from self-retrospection.
He died recently and his words still resonate and have had an impact in my life. My dad gave me one of his books to read when I quit drinking and he helped me understand myself and become stronger.
I am not one to follow Gurus, but he was above all human and he would always make sure he expressed this. When I went to see him speak, he entered the room barefoot and being just his natural self. He could also speak and reach his audience in a very fun, down to earth way.
I suggest his earlier books at Amazon as excuses begone. As with everything, take what you like and leave the rest
May he rest in peace and as he said, he was ready to go when his time came. He left gracefully and content.
At the beginning of his movie “The shift.” he shares Jung’s words which I have come to feel very close to:
“Thoroughly unprepared, we take the step into the afternoon of life. Worse still, we take this step with the false presupposition that our truths and our ideals will serve us as hitherto. But we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the program of life’s morning, for what was great in the morning will be little at evening and what in the morning was true, at evening will have become a lie.”
