I only own nine of his forty books published but I am a big fan of Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s. The friend who took me both times to see him is a much bigger devotee than I. Thank you, L, for inviting me to see such a wonderful speaker who walks the walk, not just talks the talk.
He spilled his life story in snippets on Wednesday night at a PBS taping in San Diego. He has come to understand, with time and introspection, to see clearly how everything in his life has led him to this moment in time. He encourages us to do the same.
In five acts, he describes how we need willingness, determination, fearlessness, compassion and love to observe positively how our choices in our circumstances throughout life have made us the people we are. He assures us when we do, we will notice how there have been forces at work and a strong, loving guidance has always been there, by our side.
It was truly an inspirational evening.
Some of my favorite quotes from Wayne that evening:
“ Don’t conform, be transformed by the world.”
“When you connect with your excitement, you will always be supported and things will align.”
“Don’t let anything interfere with your passion. It becomes what you are.”
“Success is when you advance confidently and endeavor in direct relationship to your dreams to live the life you have imagined.”
“Under struggle and pain, empathy and compassion arises.”
“True nobility is about being better than you used to be.”
By the way, he mentioned many influential authors he has studied and one of them was (you guessed it) – Viktor Frankl, and his life changing view of the world book – A Man’s Search for Meaning which I just ordered after someone else went on and on about it: see previous post. You know that is not just a coincidence.
