You will be missed Dr.Wayne Dyer

I am very sad to report that Dr. Wayne Dyer passed away last night.  He was one of my favorite inspirational, spiritual teachers that I was blessed to have seen in person more than once.  He has touched my life and the lives of countless others.  My condolences to the Dyer Family.  You will be missed Dr. Dyer.  Thank you for all of your wisdom. ~ Love and Light.

“Choose to see death as simply removing a garment or moving from room to room, it is merely a transition.” ~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

Letting Go

989e5-surrender-goddess

 To Let Go

*does not mean to stop caring, it means I can’t do it for someone else.

*is not to cut myself off, it’s the realization that I can’t control another.

*is not to enable, but to allow learning from natural consequences.

*is to admit powerlessness, which means the outcome is not in my hands.

*is not to try to change or blame another, it’s to make the most of myself.

*is not to care for, but to care about.

*is not to fix, but to be supportive.

*is not to judge, but to allow another to be a human being.

*is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes, but to allow others to effect their destinies.

*is not to be protective, its to permit another to face reality.

*is not to deny, but to accept.

*is not to nag, scold, or argue, but instead to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.

*is not to adjust everything to my desires, but to take each day as it comes, and cherish myself in it.

*is not to criticize and regulate anybody, but to try to become what I dream to be.

*is not to regret the past, but to grow and live for the future.

*is to fear less, and love more.

“Let Go and Let God…As children bring their broken toys with tears for us to mend, I brought my broken dreams to God, because God is my friend.  But then, instead of leaving God in peace to work alone I hung around and tried to help, with ways that were my own.  At last, I snatched them back and cried, “How can you be so slow?”  “My child,” God said, “What could I do?  You never did let go!” ~ unknown

Respect

“Respect-yourself-and-others-will-respect-you.”Confucius

 

Respect of self is being able to be who you truly are without having to explain yourself to anyone or convince them of your truths.

Respect of others is allowing them to be who they are without trying to change them.

Respect of the world is doing your part to make the world a better place.

Respect of nature is preserving it.

Respect of animals is protecting them.

What does respect look like to you?

“Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, are makes you happy.” ~ unknown

“Respect is not imposed nor begged.  It’s earned and offered.” ~ unknown

“The willingness to accept responsibility for one’s own life is the source from which self-respect springs.” ~ Joan Didion
