Into the Positive Vibe
Wayne Dyer proposes finding higher purpose in one’s unique, natural
expression of intention, carried out in service and gratitude. These positives
also call pain into the equation, as we assist those in need and are humbly
grateful when fortunes are good. With all that said, the bounty is ours,
while we live:
The reason these are all-so-positive, is that they are either the selected
best attributes of human being (2, 3, 4, 5), or they are universal principles
(1, 6, 7) untainted by our human frailty and failings - even as we partake
of such qualities in our essence, our origin, our destination ... blinking
like so many wave-suns back into the running tide.
To dwell in the realms of love, creativity, kindness and beauty, we are
inspired by our own universal traits of receptivity, expansion, and unlimited
abundance. In support of and supported by such awarenesses, we are called
by Wayne Dyer to be “authentic and peaceful” in the focus of
our thoughts. “Authentic and peaceful” implies the recognition
and humble acceptance of suffering, of failure, of loss, of pain. That is
not to say, however, that we should curl up in that pain, in a posture of
self-protection and mourning, much beyond the initial infliction. The natural
process of grieving and healing runs its course in the short term and brings
us back to the threshold of life and renewal again, where we rediscover
joy and expression. In the process we are both more authentic and grounded
than before. And we find ourselves in a state of temperance and reflection,
humility and revelation, elevated from previous states of fear and regret.
We can now appreciate greater truths ...
There is time and energy in the universe in abundance.
In the forest, tree snags stand like statues of the coming apocalypse.
The ground before me may appear stone and cold gravel; yet all around, there
persists luxuriant green life, sunny birdsong out of the gloom.
I walk inside these old deep woods toward new springs.
Love fills the self from the inside, expanding self to hold others, and
In a perfect bliss of sun and swimming, with nature pure and filled
with beauty all around me, I represent but ...
a drop in the ocean of bloodlust
a drop in the ocean of forgiveness
a drop in the ocean of false promises
a drop in the ocean of kindness
a drop in the ocean of heartbreaks
a drop in the ocean of destiny
a drop in the ocean of gratitude
I have gifts and I am strong enough now to bear them alone, on the
way to meet my lover.
Moth on dandelion blossom:
black and white papery wings
clinging, in expert design
vibrating beauty in a shimmering breeze
Authentic and Peaceful
Wayne Dyer writes that in all our relationships we can improve matters
simply by being authentic and peaceful.
Being authentic and peaceful applies in the attitude to choice, as it does
in the sphere of relationship. All life for us is a matter of relationship,
not just with other humans but with our surroundings, our inner workings,
our chemical constituency and energetic fields. So these qualities of expression
and impression can color our whole experience – not just in black/white
shades of yin/yang, but in all colors of the rainbow and sketches of gray.
Go or stay?
The choice is irrelevant to the attitude of constancy implied by peaceful,
while at the same time a new motion will be followed like a wave of authenticity
passing through. Authentic is also an apt description for staying put: having
an inertial quality in either case, to be the leaf or the rock or indeed
the river itself. And peaceful, to get back to our true friend Gandhi, can
apply equally to one’s attitude of energetic expression, and to the
state of restful contentment.
In truth, as going and staying are two faces of the same attitude, authentic
and peaceful describe our true essence in its dual nature, a nature not
divided but two-sided, X and Y, male and female, animus and anima, yes even
animal. These apparently very humanistic qualities, authentic and peaceful,
in fact portray the very face of Nature.
