Of all the quotes I liked from Dr. Wayne Dyer, this has to be one of my favorites. Simple, poignant, profound!

This was a man of true spiritual wisdom, and as he shared that wisdom with millions from all over the world, I sensed he was reminding himself about these perennial truths as well. As he taught, he also found himself to be the student. And though saddened about this somewhat shocking news (I say somewhat because many know he was battling cancer for quite a few years), somehow I know that his journey, his adventure, his teaching and his learning will continue as he steps into this next phase of life. God be with you and continue to bless you as you march onward toward your next big journey!

Here’s another quote that speaks to the wisdom that was perennial Wayne Dyer, and synchronistically a message that I recently spoke about during a Conscious Commentary episode.

Here’s the news of his passing posted on

Dr. Wayne Dyer, the self-help guru whose best-seller “Your Erroneous Zones” was adopted by millions as a guide to better living, has died at 75, his family and publisher said Sunday.

Dyer died Saturday night in Maui, Hawaii, said Reid Tracy, chief executive of Dyer’s publisher, Hay House. The cause of death wasn’t immediately reported.

Dyer was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia in 2009 but claimed to have treated it with positive thinking, daily exercise and “psychic surgery” performed remotely by the Brazilian medium João Teixeira de Faria, better known as “John of God.” He detailed the controversial treatment in an interview with Oprah Winfrey — for whom he was a friend and frequent guest for more than 30 years — in 2012.

Building on philosophies espoused by Krishna Rau, the Siddha Yoga founder who was known as Swami Muktananda, Dyer published “Your Erroneous Zones” in 1976. It cataloged the ideas he’d espoused as a counseling education professor at St. John’s University in New York, and it shot to the top of the best-seller lists, where it stayed for more than a year.

Dyer became a media sensation, touring the U.S. and appearing on virtually every TV talk show.
