Hi, everyone. Welcome to our Corner.
I have a stack of clippings, books, Youtube programs, etc. of things of interest to me, and hopefully to you, that I’ve saved through the years, stacked in the corner of my office.
Today I found a real treasure, notes I’d taken of a TV program featuring Dr. Wayne Dyer. This particular program was titled, “10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace.”
Dyer was an author and motivational speaker, who passed away in August of 2015.
So, today we’ll discuss this inspirational man’s tips for success and inner peace.
1. “Have a mind open to everything and attached to nothing.
Dyer suggest that rather than taking the chance of offending someone you don’t agree with, say something like, “That’s an interesting point of view. I’d never have thought of it that way.”
2. “You get back from the Universe what you put out.
“Shift energy to what can I give to you? Learn to love yourself, foster kindness, peace and joy, and, in turn, shift your energy to what can I give to you?”
3. “There are no justified resentments.
“If you carry resentments, those resentments will always harm you. You must send blame out of your life. Send love in response to hate.”
4. “Don‘t die with your music still in you. (Thoreau).
5. “Embracing silence
“One power, one force, and one soul. Go into your silence, commune with nature. Be connected to self, know God, and then there will be: Spiritual Awakening.”
6. “Giving up your personal history.
“Embrace your past, understand it, and then, toss it. Give it up! Merge into the now.
7. “You can’t solve a problem with the same mind that created it.”
“You must change your mind. ‘I was wrong.’ It didn’t work.”
8. “Treat yourself as if you already were what you’d like to become.”
9. “Treasure your Divinity.
“I’m always connected to my Source.”
10. “Wisdom is avoiding all thoughts of negativity.”
“Negative thoughts disempower you – Stop It!”
Dr. Dyer also believed that there was a spiritual solution to every problem.
Reading his writings always bring me peace. We probably don’t spend enough time unwinding, returning to the amazing relaxation of meditation, slowing down, and appreciating the joy of life.
Dr. Dyer’s number four tip for inner peace, “Don’t die with your music still in you,” by Thoreau, speaks volumes. Let’s you and I vow that we get all that beautiful music out of us, that we can say we truly lived.
Would you mind a quote from the Bible? I just read it recently, and I think you might like it, also. It has to do with love, and you know how important I believe love is. That we should love ourselves, therefore have even more love to love others, sometimes we need to love the ones who are the most difficult to love, because they might need love even more than others.
This is from 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ”Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful, it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful, it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.”
On that note, let’s say goodbye for now, love yourself, love others, and we’ll meet again next week.
