As Albert Einstein once said,
Possessions, outward success,
publicity, luxury –
to me these have always been contemptible.
I believe that a simple and
unassuming manner of life
is best for everyone,
best for the body and the mind.”
A few days after my day job ended, I encountered Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book, Inspiration. This book brought me closer to the Universal Spirit by discussing ways to give and receive inspiration. I particularly liked, “The 12-Step Program to Simplicity,” which I will share and add my own comments to.
- Unclutter your life: Delete files from your hard drive that you no longer use
- Clear your calendar: Avoid overbooking your life
- Keep your free time free: Leave room for unexpected miracles
- Take time for meditation and yoga: Down Dog – YAY! (Yoga Amongst the Dolphins)
- Return to the simplicity of nature: Go for a walk
- Put distance between you and your critics: Delete hurtful comments from your blog
- Take some time for your health: Drink water while you work on your computer
- Play, play, play: Download Angry Bird
- Slow down: Over estimate the time it will take you to complete a project
- Do everything you can to eschew debt: Do not keep a credit card balance
- Forget about the cash value: Blog in the spirit of fun
- Remember your spirit: Do what’s right for you
By simplifying life, inspiration’s calling becomes clear.
This book jumped out at me, from the library shelves, at an appropriate moment in my life. Dr. Dyer’s butterfly totem, representing inspiration, confirmed the message that Spirit wanted me to hear. Thank You!
