What Would Wayne Dyer Do?

What Would Wayne Dyer Do?

Finding out that Wayne Dyer had passed away recently was a complete shock to me. I had expected him to live for at least another 20 years (even though he was already 75 years old). He was always in such high spirits every time I saw him on television, heard him on the radio, or watched him at an event.
One of the things he would often say is, “Don’t die with your music still in you.” This came from a novel by Leo Tolstoy where the main character at the end of the book is on his deathbed and asks his wife, “What if my whole life has been wrong?”
I don’t believe it to be a stretch to say that Wayne did not, in fact, die with his music still in him. He played for decades, and left a wake trailing behind him which is prolific.

Usually around the time that people get married, have children, and are secure in their career, they begin to find a gnawing unsatisfactoriness in life. They frequently cannot place what is causing their unhappiness, but it is there none-the-less.

This can sometimes be called a “midlife crisis,” although it need not occur in the middle of life. It also doesn’t have to be caused by “settling down,” because for many it happens earlier in life than that.

Recently, I’ve been taking care of many things I had been putting off. Basically, I’ve been “cleaning house” in my outer life. This corresponded with an inner shift where I cleaned the mental fog and became more awake and willing to look within.

This got me thinking how all outer events or circumstances mirror our internal status. “As above, so below. As within, so without,” as the saying goes. What is happening in our outer world is merely a reflection of what is going on within us.

Waiting for Enlightenment…

Waiting for Enlightenment…

Everyone who hasn’t realized it yet, is for some reason or another waiting for enlightenment. Once you comprehend this—it is possible to start moving forward—but it must be understood deeply. There is nothing holding you back from your own enlightenment aside from yourself. We are all waiting for a myriad of reasons, but there is nothing holding us back but our own illusions.

Meditating the other day, I found myself becoming impatient. I had set an app on my phone to time me and provide bell chimes at regular intervals. For some reason, however, it seemed to be taking forever. Even my legs were starting to slightly ache since I was seated on the floor.

It was supposed to be just a quick 10-minute meditation, which normally goes quite fast. I couldn’t figure out why it was taking so long though. Then when the timer went off to signal I was finished, I realized I had set it for 20 minutes!

Waterskiing last week I came to a sudden understanding: I got it! Now, this was only my second time, so I’m certainly still a novice. But while I was riding I became comfortable to a degree I hadn’t before, and it was clear to me in that moment.

There was no warning, and I wasn’t trying to get to this point. It just happened on its own accord. There was no thinking about it, I just suddenly knew.
