My Mentor Dr. Dyer

I still remember when I first met Dr. Dyer. I took his book Inspiration with me to Lake Tahoe. Reading it was like a baptism by fire. I had been searching for answers and additional truths, and Dr. Dyer provided me with just what I was seeking. I immediately looked him up with great hopes of connecting with him. I wanted to see if I could study under him or pay him to be my mentor. I was disheartened to learn that he had recently passed away (August 29, 2015). I was so sad. How could he be dead when I knew he was perfect for me? Gratefully, I felt his spirit whisper to me that death was not an obstacle for the work we were going to be doing together. He assured me that he would be with me in spirit and that all of the knowledge and training I needed I could get through the study of his books. That is one of the reasons he had meticulously written so many.

So I went to the library and checked out every Dr. Dyer book they had available. And for the past 6 months I have progressed through each one. My awareness and spirituality has grown by leaps and bounds. I see so much more clearly now and I am so grateful for my relationship with Dr. Dyer. I feel his presence keenly. He teaches me as I read, dream, ponder, meditate, and pray. I feel that he has passed the proverbial baton to me and whereas I once lamented the timing of his death because I saw it as a great misfortune that I'd never get to meet him in person, I now recognize the impeccability of the timing. He is my Yoda, my Obi Wan Kenobi. Our lives have coincided in what seems to be sacred geometry. I will pick up where he left off. My mission will be to make sure his words never die. I am his disciple. I want to make sure I continue his work of elevating the spiritual consciousness of our planet till world peace is a matter of fact and all hate, intolerance, injustice, and fear has been replaced with love, acceptance, equality, and peace. 

I am not sure right now exactly how I will fulfill this mission. For now, it is enough to know my intentions. Over the next few months and years, I trust that everything I need to fulfill our mission will appear right on time. In the meantime, I will continue studying, preparing, and living an inspired life. I will continue to radiate love, peace, kindness, and compassion to everyone I encounter. Dr. Dyer, thank you for accepting me as your student and thank you for everything you have taught me and continue to teach me. I love you and treasure your continued mentorship.
there is no greater journey than the pursuit of a dream

Holy Treason

I don’t know if you’re like me or not, but I was born into the one and only “true” religion of God. I spent my entire life studying and living the principles and teachings of my faith. I knew the doctrine, and I believed it to be true. Until I didn’t.

The road to the unraveling of my faith is a rather long one—definitely another article for another day--but suffice it to say, I began studying other religions and realized that all of them contained beautiful truths. I felt as uplifted and inspired while reading their scriptures as I did reading mine. I understood why some referred to religion as a “faith culture” for I was now aware that had I been born and raised in a different religion, I’d have believed that religious tradition to be true.

I came to see religions as merely vehicles leading us back to God. Surely God didn’t care whether his children drove jalopies or Jaguars so long as they were moving along the superhighway back to Him. Or could it be her? Or perhaps there wasn’t just…


I've been thinking a bit about relationships. I'm seeing them differently than I've ever seen them before. First, I realize that relationships are created in our minds. What we think about our relationships defines them. If I think my daughter is ungrateful, I will see ingratitude in all her actions. If I tell myself my coworker is annoying, I will find him extremely so.  And so it goes. What we think about others creates how we relate to them.

So why not think happy, positive, loving thoughts about the people we relate with? We absolutely have the power to create amazing relationships by changing the way we think about our relations.

Second, I've been thinking about the importance of loving the people in our life for who they are, not for what we need them to be. People need freedom to be who they want to be. If you love someone, you don't try to change them. That isn't love. Love is accepting someone for who they are and where they are right now. Love knows n…

His Light Lives On

Page told me during breakfast this morning that President Thomas S. Monson passed away last night. The realization that a great soul had left this mortal life washed over me. I wanted to pay tribute to him today so I decided I would take his framed picture with me to work and set it aside a lighted candle. It would be my way to acknowledge the illuminating affect he has had in my life and the life of so many others, as well as signify that his light lives on.

Here's how it looked:

I moved him throughout the day so that I could always see him. I also spent some time reading some of his most beloved quotes. I felt his presence and my love for his great soul increased. Some of the quotes I shared with others throughout the day include:
Decisions determine destiny Your future is as bright as your faith   Search inward. Reach outward. Look heavenward Never postpone a prompting We can't direct the wind but we can adjust the sails It's always better to look up Stand for t…
