September 2, 2015, Prescott- Wayne W. Dyer passed to the Spirit Realm on Saturday. In my early, and some fitful, attempts to make sense of my then-tortuous life, I read two books recommended me by a paternal uncle: Thomas Harris’s “I’m Okay, You’re Okay”, and Wayne Dyer’s “Your Erroneous Zones”. I might have done well to re-read the latter, during the decade 2000-2009. It would have saved a lot of erroneous behaviour.
Dr. Dyer never gave up on humanity, or on himself, purging his body of leukemia, via natural toxin-flushing diet and exercise, and a regular meditation and self-accounting, leading to needed changes in his daily routine. It didn’t hurt that he lived for many years on Maui, but no place is perfect, and everyone needs to take responsibility for him/herself. Wayne Dyer did so, with a most intense elan.
I choose to remember him with a particular quote: 2. “If you believe it will work out, you’ll see opportunities. If you believe it won’t you will see obstacles.” This has been the driving force of my life, over the past four years, starting with the moment that I was seemingly left with next to nothing, in September, 2011. He was right; it worked out, and will continue so.
Wayne W. Dyer approached his impending death, early last month, by saying he was looking forward to the journey. May he shower us all with waves of opportunity-recognizing energy.
