"I fill myself with love, and I send that out into the world. How others treat me is their path; how I react is mine." --Wayne Dyer
Every so often, I would visit Wayne Dyer's website because of its neat random quote generator. Sometimes a hoot, but always thought-provoking, Dyer's pithy quotes are a treat to read and digest.
Now, Dyer's wonderful insights are available in the 301-page book Everyday Wisdom—a collection of 300 sayings by the beloved self-development teacher. These quotes address topics such as love, forgiveness, the power of thoughts, internal and external peace, intuition, empowerment, authenticity, attitude, death, abundance, and much more. Here are few samples of Dyer's wit and wisdom featured in this book:
You're already complete and whole, and nothing external to yourself in the physical world can make your more complete.
No one can create anger or stress within you. Only you can do that by virtue of how you process your world.
What you think about expands. If your thoughts are centered on what's missing, then what's missing, by definition, will have to expand.
Go beyond the ideas of succeeding and failing--these are the judgments. Stay in the process and allow the universe to handle the details.
Our beliefs are the invisible ingredients in all our activities.
Once you've learned how to enter your inner kingdom, you have a special retreat within that's always available to you.
So many people are expecting a miracle instead of being a miracle.
No one knows enough to be a pessimist.
Everyday Wisdom is great to thumb through for inspiration and to aid in personal growth. You could even choose a quote and meditate on it throughout the day—as well as consider how you might apply its wisdom. Or, if you're in need of guidance, ask a questions and turn to a page at random for sage advice.
Not only is this book a wonderful addition to any library, but it would also make a meaningful gift for others.
