The Beatles Were Right

If you ever feel like you are trying too hard, you probably are! Who said that effort and striving are the keys to success? I think the Beatles were on to something in their classic song when they advised that we simply “Let It Be.” Verse 47 of the Tao Te Ching suggests that effort and striving, along with the struggling, worrying, stressing, fretting and agonizing that we can’t seem to resist, are behaviors that actually keep us from experiencing the harmony and sense of completion that are part of our connection to the Divine Order. What if we learned to live by being rather than trying? “Without going out the door, know the world. Without looking out the window, you may see the ways of heaven,” says the Tao. For example, consider how the beating of your heart, the inhaling and exhaling of your breath, and a myriad of other life functions take place without effort from you, even as you are reading these words. You are a single beat in the one heart that is humanity. The Divine is at work within you, moving you toward your life purpose. Let yourself be guided and see what happens when you simply “let it be.”

“Let it be” is so easy and so difficult. Like the paradox you discuss in your books. Once we embrace it, we can truly “let it be”. Namaste – Alina

I started reading the Toa of Pooh a couple days ago, and then I googled Dr. Wayne Dyer today because I saw a part of his seminar on a local public channel last week and was curious to learn more, and I stumbled upon this, so coincidental and so perfect!

susceptible 2 fear re: 2012? a lot of ppl r making money by ‘spiritually preparing’ others for in a ‘choice’ leading 2 doom or ascension.

not wayne dyer, who echoes divinity, ‘resting in the palm of god’ – let go of anxiousness.. let go of fear, be present… be calm.. be peace.

Hi Wayne, Thank you so much for your inspirational words. I think you can help so many people in fulfilling their dreams. I have your No Excuses book, CDs, DVD, and the Shift. It is a lot harder than I thought. Obviously I haven’t got through the no excuses part yet. hahahahha! I am working on it!!! 🙂 I am ready to start living. 🙂


That was exactly what I needed to hear at this moment…

Thank you for being a vessel for universal love! Henry Adams said..”A teacher affects eternity…he can never tell where his influence stops.”

You are a true teacher, I hope one day our paths will cross so I may be able to say thank you.

Max says:

Thanks Doc! You’re the best and even though I’ve read and listened to just about every word you’ve ever said (OK, that’s an exaggeration), I still need reminders every day. My thick ego tends to relapse into “what’s in it for me” mode more often than I’d like. Keep posting the blogs! You’re part of my morning ritual. 🙂 Thanks again, big guy!

Heidi says:

Thank you Mr. Dyer! You are a beacon of light for many.

Eric says:

I love that verse. Thanks Wayne

Valerie says:

Thank you so much Wayne. How did you know that I needed this reminder in this very moment…I need to take time re-connect with the higher power that created, guides, and connects us all. Your teachings have saved me from completely breaking down many times in the last few months. With renewed hope and faith from Toronto, Canada,
