Honoring the Teachings of Wayne Dyer

Greetings Leaders and Healers,

 Since the passing (I think Wayne Dyer would actually call it “transformation” instead of passing), of one of my heroes, Wayne Dyer, I have been reflecting on his brilliant teachings.

For those of you who don’t know who him, I highly recommend his work – books, interviews, audio programs – if you are currently on a journey of self-discovery and spiritual renewal.

It isn’t so much what he taught that made him so amazing, but rather the way he conducted his life from day to day.  In almost every interview I heard with him, the person interviewing him would comment on how he is one who really “walked the walk,” and not just “talked the talk.”

Wayne Dyer 2Here are the top 5 fundamental teachings I learned from him:

1) Inspiration Vs. Motivation: “Motivation is when you get a hold of an idea and you take it to its conclusion.  You get highly motivated, and you go after it, no matter what.  Inspiration, on the other hand, is when an idea gets a hold of you, and it takes ‘you’ where you were meant to be and go all along, even before your very birth.”

2) Be independent of the good opinion of others: Simply said, “March to your ‘own’ drum beat!”

3) “There is no way to happiness, happiness IS the way!”: Happiness is paradoxically not an outcome or a destination you reach after you’ve accomplished a set of tasks, rather the by-product of present moment focus, gratitude, and a letting go of outcome.

4) “How people treat you is their karma; how you respond is yours”: Here is another way to see this in the following quote, “Don’t treat people as bad as they are; treat people as good as ‘you’ are!”

5) “When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” Patanjali: I heard this quote, first, when I saw Wayne Dyer, for the first time, on public television.  In order to be “in-spirit,” or inspired, there is a method that he promoted so frequently to enter this space – meditation.  Wayne Dyer is the very reason I began to meditate.  He exuded so much love and wisdom from a beautiful place.  I couldn’t really explain it, but he attests it to meditation.  As I read in one of his many books, “Enlightenment isn’t an attainment, but a realization.”  He went on to say, “If you don’t meditate, you’re really not going to get this. You must enter that space where you make conscious contact with God.”  

 Wayne Dyer was asked one time, “So, what is your biggest and most proud accomplishment?” Wayne Dyer explained his initial reaction which was one of ego – how many books he sold, how much money he’s made etc. Then, after pausing for a short time, he responded, “My biggest accomplishment is being able to tame my own ego.”  That’s the type of person Wayne Dyer was.

I am one of your students, Wayne.  I commit to carrying on your torch of wisdom and love throughout the world!

In honor and respect, peace and eternal love!
