Inky Solemn Sky

waynedyer-you choose haiku

Today’s Haiku:

inky, solemn sky
lightning carves a daring path—
the next adventure

~

Today, an acquaintance of mine wrote a Facebook post stating, “Stop venerating Dr. Wayne Dyer, please.” He apparently gave bad advice in one of his books. Just wondering how many of you were led astray by the self-help guru?

Or did you take from him what you needed and let the rest go?

Have a peaceful day!

  1. I always try to glean whatever lessons I can from teachers and ignore anything that doesn’t feel right or doesn’t make sense unless I intuit that I’m just resisting a lesson. “Bad” results could be because it’s bad advice but just as easily could be because someone didn’t really understand the message or the practice. Or because there’s a lesson to be learned before getting more seemingly positive results. I wasn’t a major devotee of Dyer but I really admired a lot of his work. And also that he seemed always willing to grow, learn and change his mind about what he may have believed before.

  2. Wayne was human, just like the rest of us. He evolved in his understanding and compassion, just like the rest of us (hopefully). I’d curious to know what “wrong” guidance your friend had taken from him. Curious because I’ve always thought it was an interesting “side note” that Wayne made many mistakes in his life, and yet got to this point in his spiritual leadership of so many. It shows the rest of us that we don’t have to be perfect in order to make a really powerful and positive difference.

    • The person didn’t like the message from the book, Erroneous Zones. I really don’t know the whole story, and I guess I don’t care. I really liked Wayne’s message. It worked for me. Thanks for commenting!
