Change Your Thoughts Change Your Life
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
We as a collective are realizing the importance of our emotional and mental health. We are worried, full of anxiety and distrusting when it comes to life. We don't know what tomorrow may bring. In a culture that is heavily fixated on tangible things, the intangible becomes seen as useless. We are constantly devaluing the ''unknowable'' the ''unseeable'' and the source of all life the ''unknown.''
Life began in darkness and darkness is what we will return to. We are created in the dark. We were first fed in the dark. We first became human in the dark. Your mother's womb was in complete darkness yet that kept you safe and developing. The problem is we became separated from the unknown once we became familiar with life outside the womb.
''When action is pure and selfless, everything settles into its own perfect place.'' (Dyer., page 14). A lot of our actions are fear-based and are often there to mask our insecurities. It is rare for humans to act with pure intentions. Because we don't trust ourselves we end up not trusting life. The secret to everything is connecting with and trusting the unknown. We have to value where we come from to value the unseen and all the work it does to keep us alive.
''The Tao is working for and with you.'' (Dyer., page 17). The unseen is always working with and for us. We are an important component of the creations that occur in our lives. We are co-creators. The unseen can only help us at the level we allow ourselves to be helped. We cannot outperform our self-esteem and level of deserve-ability.
To instill faith in our lives always remember this passage.
''Trust the harmony of the Tao. It took care of everything that you needed in your creation as well as your first nine months of life without any assistance from you.'' (Dyer., page 17).
