Rest in Peace Dr. Wayne Dyer (15 Quotes)

Dr. Wayne Dyer (5/10/1940 - 8/29/2015)
A few days ago news came down that Dr. Wayne Dyer had died. When I first heard the news I felt emptier inside and the world was larger in that way when there is not enough stuff to fill a room and make it feel cozy.

Dr. Dyer was one of my mentors and an inspiration to me on who to live my life. He was the first person to introduce me to the idea of living with the Dao.

He published many books that helped shape the personal development landscape. One of his first, and perhaps his most famous, is Your Erroneous Zones. My personal favorites of his books are Wishes Fulfilled and The Power of Intention, which has helped shape my beliefs and life.

Dr. Dyer's philosophy combined New Thought self-actualization with non denominational Spirituality. That appealed to me when I first discovered him because it allows all of us to love and worship and believe in our own way. The only rule was Love above all. Dr. Dyer believed that we are all Divine creatures of pure love. His writings and PBS specials influenced me a great day and I will sorely miss him.

Although he has gone on to his next great adventure, he is still with us in the wisdom he imparted. Here are 15 of my favorite Wayne Dyer quotes. I hope they inspire and empower you as they did me.

  1. Believing is Seeing.
  2. Isn’t it hard to follow the Tao and try to be independent of the good opinion of others? people ask. Actually, it’s much harder to struggle with either seeking approval or trying to shake off disapproval. If everything you do must be measured against the good opinion of everyone else, what happens to your good opinion of yourself? Who’s looking out for the soul that is your connection to the Divine? You have to decide what your passion, your bliss, is calling you to do. When you’re following that call, your feelings of joy, contentment, and peace will be strong enough to keep you from worrying about pleasing all the people all the time—as if that is even possible.
  3. Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
  4. You are not stuck where you are - unless you decide to be.
  5. You can light up the whole world by giving without any expectation back.
  6. I have absolutely no limits on what I intent to create.
  7. What we think determines what happens to us, so if we want to change our lives, we need to stretch our minds.
  8. The mere presence of passion within you is all you need to fulfill your dreams!
  9. Begin to see yourself as a soul with a body rather than a body with a soul.
  10. Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.
  11. A mind at peace, a mind centered and not focused on harming others, is stronger than any physical force in the universe.
  12. How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.
  13. Happiness is something that you are, and it comes from the way you think.
  14. Judgements prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances.
  15. When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
