This is the second book that I have read by Dr Dyer, the first changed my life at a time when I had hit an impasse and really needed advice. By following that advice my life changed out of all expectation so I did not bother to read another of his books because I thought 'OK, I understand where I was going wrong, job done'.
One of Amazon's marketing strategies is to present similar products to those previously purchased so they emailed me with another Dyer book with taster pages. As I thought I already knew it all, I was not very interested. However I was doing nothing in particular so I dipped in and then wanted to know more. In general I am a successful person so I understood some of the strategies but it is good to be reminded of things I might not have used for some time and of course there was also material that was new to me and that I could easily put into practice.
This is not just another self help book, it is a deeply practical insight into why and how things go wrong in life and how to put them right. It outlines the strategies used, sometimes consciously sometimes automatically by some of the most popular, decent but wealthy and successful people in the public eye as well as those who work quietly for their own families and for others.
Of all the books I have read, this outstanding work by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has caused a turn around in my life; in the way I look at life; in the way I live it. It is exciting, and refreshingly different. How different?
Well, to begin with, in his preface, Dr. Dyer sends the reader to the last chapter in the book first! Chapter 15, entitled A Portrait of a Person Connected to the Field of Intention, is the author's attempt to show the impact that this work can have upon an individual. After reading it I have no doubt that you will go back to the beginning for what will probably be the beginning of a "new you".
Dr. Dyer's thesis is contained in Part 1, The Essentials of Intention. Consisting of the first six chapters, it is here that he slowly and carefully constructs his concept. From Viewing Intention From A New Perspective, through a description of The Seven Faces Of Intention, to Chapter 6, Intention and Infinity, the reader is led to the conclusion: "Just as love is eternal, so is this my true nature. I'll never be afraid again, because I am forever." He then asks, "You are in the truest sense, as I've said previously, either a human being having an occasional spiritual experience, or an infinite spiritual being having a temporary human experience. Which of those gives you a feeling of love? And which inspires fear?"
Throughout, these six formulating chapters, Dr. Dyer draws from some of the great minds of our time and in history: Hermes, Emily Dickinson, John Keats, Swami Chidvilasananda, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Mahatma Gandhi, Max Planck and Dr. David R. Hawkins, to name a few. Each chapter ends with a five point "how to" section to assist the reader in implementing the ideas just covered.Read more ›
