As you know, I am a fan of www.thedailylove.com. Every day I get an e-mail with inspiring thoughts, quotes and affirmations – for free, courtesy of Mastin Kipp. Some weeks ago he sent out this free video interview with Wayne Dyer.
Wayne Dyer is an author of self-help books and his first book from 1976(!), Your Erroneous Zones, is one of the best selling books of all times with 35 million copies sold.
To be honest I had never heard of this guy before, but I felt this man really has a profound knowledge of spiritual things and I was curious to find out more. So I looked on line for quotes and film clips with Wayne.
Here are some quotes by Wayne Dyer that I liked and think are very true:
“I will attract into my life what I am, not what I want.”
“Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world.”
“Maxim for life: You get treated in life the way you teach people to treat you.” I heard Dr Phil say something very similar some years ago “You teach people how to treat you” and it really gave me an aha moment.
“The components of anxiety, stress, fear, and anger do not exist independently of you in the world. They simply do not exist in the physical world, even though we talk about them as if they do.” This is a completely new thought to me! Anxiety, stress and fear does not exist with out a person harbouring those feelings. It is so true that we talk about those feelings as if they are actual “things”.
“The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.” This happens a lot, people reject things because they don’t know anything about them and that scares them, therefor it is safer and easier to reject rather than try to understand.
“Freedom means you are unobstructed in living your life as you choose. Anything less is a form of slavery.” Very true – if you don’t live your life exactly as you want there is an element of slavery, or ownership by someone else besides you.
“Conflict cannot survive without your participation.” I wish I had realised this when I was younger – so many unnecessary conflicts that could have been avoided.
“When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.” This is why when we get a judgemental thought we should stop and think about what it is about ourselves that makes us feel a need to judge another person.
“Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life.” It is not only important to do what you love, but it is a corner stone. This is what I feel like when working with Bag-all, I just love it so much I can’t even call i work. AND consider, abundance is not only money, but all the other positive emotions you get from doing what you love.
“It makes no sense to worry about things you have no control over because there’s nothing you can do about them, and why worry about things you do control? The activity of worrying keeps you immobilised.” Really there is no point i worrying, ever.
“There is no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love; there’s only scarcity of resolve to make it happen.” We are often afraid to take the step and start doing what we love. The opportunity is there all the time, but fear holds us back.
“It’s never crowded along the extra mile.” Love this quote! To go the extra mile is so worth it, but most people don’t make the effort. Of course the extra mile is much easier when you do what you love.
“You cannot always control what goes on outside. But you can always control what goes on inside.” You decide to put meaning to what happens around you. You always have a choice of how to interpret things, or even better a choice NOT to interpret things, just disregard them and that gives them no value.
“People who want the most approval get the least and people who need approval the least get the most.”
“The last suit that you wear, you don’t need any pockets.”
“Gods fingerprints are all over your greatest challenges!” So true! I will talk more about this in a future blog post.
I also found this movie by Wayne Dyer online. He wanted to make this movie to spread his message to the 90% of the american population that does not read books. Wayne Dyer plays himself in this movie and the rest of the characters are fictional to illustrate his points.
Have a great Sunday everyone!
