A True Leader


One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.”

-Carl Jung

Today as I read the headlines on Yahoo – Self-help Guru Dyer Dies, a part of me reacted “Oh no! Not him…” –

Since the past few weeks I’d been hearing his Audio book I Can See Clearly Now. It’s a 10 and a half hour (Part1 alone) audio and I have still not completed hearing it. I was savouring it, hearing daily around half hour of it – often on my commute across the bustling city of Bombay.

About a month earlier when I heard another of his talks  on Youtube – I decided I was going to re-read Erroneous Zones again – having read it and few more of his books over a decade ago, and get hold of his latest book “I Can See Clearly Now”. I had signed up for his weekly newsletter and was also thinking of maybe attending one of his coming events – he was travelling around the world – Australia and New Zealand,  London and on a cruise to the Holy Land.

Now I won’t get to meet this inspiring human soul – at least not in physical form but my life has been profoundly touched because of his existence.

This man – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer is one of the few men I found spoke and wrote simply, clearly and from the heart. I was amazed how so many of his words not only made sense, they felt like THE TRUTH- maybe because they are TRUE – like the innate healing ability of our bodies; striving for self- actualization; power of intention and many more of the thoughts and ideas he spoke so passionately about.

In my eyes, he indeed was a true Leader in the highest sense, leading others to lead themselves!

The world again mourns for the loss of such a wise and loving human – yet a part of me feels he is closer to more people now even though not in physical form and will surely inspire more of us to reach for the stars – and if not the stars, walk this earth with joy and in the words of Thoreau, whose work Wayne greatly admired …

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” — Henry David Thoreau

Thank you Wayne for all the books, wisdom, inspiration and mostly for Being You ! – RIP.
