Muses on Dr. Wayne Dyer Transition From the Known Body to Body Unknown
Yesterday I received some news that jarred me and cause me to PAUSE for a minute. I learned that one of my unofficial mentors transitioned from the known body to body unknown. I wanted to follow my instincts and go with the sorrow I felt, but as I reflected on who He IS……my heart could only feel deep peace and compassion. I am talking about the honorable Dr. Wayne Dyer, author of the Power of Intention, Change Your Thoughts/Change Your Life, creator of The Shift and so many more books. I have many, if not all, of Dr. Dyer’s publications and I have been listening to him speak on public TV and radio for years. In the last few years, Oprah has been having enlightening conversations with him on her broadcast “Super Soul Sunday”. I can watch those episodes over and over again. Thank you Oprah!
We Are More Than Our Bodies and Conditioned Personalities
Dr. Dyer is just one of the many enlightened teachers that I have adopted as a significant member of my community. His teachings are not only inspirational, they are magical. There is something so magically phenomenal about “truth”. When you encounter it, things change. That is what Dr. Dyer introduced to the world: the transformative magic of love. The truth of the matter is that all things are from the source of Divine Love and since we are included in “all things”, we are that Love. When we truly understand who we are, and that we are so much more than an our bodies and the expression of our conditioned personalities , we can live in the space of self-acceptance and the knowing that We and Source of our Being are One. God is Love and so are We. It is our birthright to Love and to be Loved. These are just some of the many truths that I learned through Dr. Dyer.
Like Water That Changes to Ice When It Snows…We Only Change Forms
Dr. Dyer would not want me to mourn his passing with grief, but with a deep awareness that we all came to express and share the Divine Love that is naturally within us and to use that love to transform ourselves and the world around us. He made such a tangible difference in offering to us his messages and teachings of Love and Hope. He made an indelible mark upon the earth. He can never die. Since we are all made of the same source of energy- we only change forms. Just like water changes to ice when it snows.
Dr. Dyer lives in the space of every word he has every spoken, in between the lines of every sentence he has every written, in the footprint of every place he has every graced, in the tenderness of every kiss he has every planted, and in the breeze of every wind that touches our skin – let it be a reminder of how gently and pleasantly he touched our lives.
Thank you Dr. Dyer for your contributions in our world system. You taught me and countless others that we are unlimited in our potential and there is an unlimited supply of Love to go around that can and will change the world.
I am now left with my personal charge to live in this awareness and continue to BE the message of Love and Acceptance that he and so many other sages taught and exemplified, including The Buddha, Jesus, Mahatma Gandhi, Kahlil Gibran, Mother Teresa, Sojourner Truth, Martin Luther King, Jr., my grand-mamma Janie, Popa, Aunt Sarah, Maya Angelou, my best friends Carl, Joyce and Theresa and lastly my two beautiful baby boys that lived only a few months in the walls of my protective womb.
Peace Be with You my Brother.
Your loving student,
