He certainly was mine.Once I stepped into his world, I never looked back.
Interestingly enough, so much of what he taught comes from Divine Law and old world traditions. But he was able to put it in such a way that it drew in people who wouldn’t ordinarily listen. I was looking into different paths and beliefs when I found Dr. Dyer and I saw so many similarities between what he taught and the teachings of all those paths. He was so down-to-earth about it and helped me understand how to put it into practice in my life.
“Detach from the good opinion of other people” – this one taught me that no matter what others said about you (good and not-so-good), let it go. It’s not about you, it’s about the other person.
“What you think about expands” – thoughts ARE things and as you think, it creates your actions and what shows up in your world.
I had spent so much time listening to him in my car to and from work that his voice lived in my head. When I had the opportunity to see him live at a conference, I jumped on it. What I remember most about it is this: He walked up on stage, no notes, no teleprompter – just him and a microphone and spoke for about 90 minutes off the top of his head. That was amazing to me.
And then I realized that when you live what you teach, no notes are ever required.
Rest in peace, Dr. Dyer. You will be missed.
