“We are not our bodies, our possessions, or our career. Who we are is Divine Love and that is Infinite.” ~ Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
A very interesting thing happened to me this morning. It was almost 6:30 am and I was still asleep. All of a sudden I hear someone talking very loudly. It was a male voice coming from my own home. Well, since I knew for sure that there was no man in my home, I felt very confused.
I woke up, looked around my bedroom not knowing what in the world was going on, and then it hit me: This is Wayne Dyer talking!
I got up, went to my living room, because that’s where the voice was coming from, and I realized that even though my laptop’s lid was closed, Wayne’s voice was coming from within my laptop. I looked at my laptop in a strange way, and I immediately started laughing.
I opened the lid to see what was happening, and I found this interview of Wayne with Tony Robbins playing on my laptop. Out of the blue!
You have to understand that I rarely shut down my laptop. I just close the lid. And even though I have had this laptop for more than two years, this had never happened before. There were more than 10 tabs open and at least 5 of them were youtube videos (I know, I have issues 🙂 ), but for some reason, only this one with Wayne was playing.
I was looking at the laptop as if it was a living, breathing thing and I couldn’t stop laughing. I knew that that was Wayne’s way of letting me know that he’s still around.
“Miracles come in moments. Be ready and willing.” – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
My Enigmatic Encounter with Wayne Dyer
Ever since I discovered Wayne’s work, I felt a strong connection to him and his teachings. I used to read a lot of books, I still do, and even though most of them were written by some of the brightest and most influential people in the field of spirituality and personal development, I never really felt as drawn to any other author, except Lao Tzu, as I felt to Wayne. There was something about the way Wayne wrote, about the words he used and about the energy he put into his teachings that made me feel a deep and profound connection to him and his work. And I loved him a great deal. I still do.
He was my mentor and my spiritual father and he had a huge impact on me and my life. In fact, if it weren’t for him and his books, I don’t know if I would be the same person I am today. Through everything he was, and everything he did, Wayne taught me how to be a better human being and how to never take my sense of worth from outside myself.
He was the one who made me realize how important it is to live my life from a place of love, truth, and high integrity; how to see myself as a soul with a body instead of a body with a soul. And he was the one who taught me the value of humility and the importance of self-love.
When he was still alive, I had moments when I wondered how it would be to no longer have him here on this Earth as a physical being. And the moment I learned of his passing, I immediately started crying. But as I started processing what had happened, I went from feeling sad to being flooded by love. Even now when I write these words I can feel an abundance of love flowing through me because I know that even though he left his body, his Spirit will live on forever. He is still here! And I know this because I can feel his pure and loving presence.
Wayne said it so beautifully: “Begin to see yourself as a soul with a body rather than a body with a soul.” And I learned how to do just that. I learned how to move beyond the physical world and connect with a world that cannot be seen or touched. A world that feels a lot more real and a lot more true to me than this physical world. And I guess that’s why, even though Wayne passed away, I can still feel his presence. I can still connect with him in profound and meaningful ways, and I can still experience his love, his light, his beauty and his wisdom…
Rumi, who Wayne loved so much, said to “Be grateful for whoever comes because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.” And I am grateful! I am grateful that I got to share the planet with such a wise, pure and loving being. And I am grateful that I got to learn so many wonderful lessons from someone whom I never met, but whose words had the power to change and transform me and my life in ways I never knew possible.
Thank you for everything Wayne.
You’ll always be in my heart.
I love you and I’ll see you around 🙂
