I wonder if Dr. Dyer shouldn't consider revising his books before sending them to his editor. The writing lacked clarity and beauty that only revision can reveal. It also was stuffed full of stomach turning cliches that distracted from the message of the book.
Plus, I can't stomach all of the finger-wagging of this book. He is constantly looking down his nose at everyone else, accusing them of "living in ego," while simultaneously patting himself on the back for being so super spiritual. This book made me feel unhappy and completely at odds with God. The whole point of the title is that it should teach me to live in spirit not out of spirit. In this objective, it fails completely.
One good moment of the book is when he is talking about excitement being a sign that you can be good at something. I find that inspiring and helpful. In the final analysis though, I find Dr. Dyer a far better lecturer than he is a writer because in his lectures he is able to focus on the principles and stay away from his attempts to be clever in his wording. It appears that whenever he attempts this it ends up being super corny.
A huge fan of some of Myss' work. Also a fan of Wayne Dyer and Deepak Chopra. This presentation leaves me cold. She spends the first half bawling the listener out in a way worse than I ever heard about Dr. Laura doing.
Why does she bawl you out? Because you believe that you can have what you want out of life. That's it. That's the reason she wants to spend your time making you feel like garbage.
If you want to learn about manifesting, check out the Secret, Abraham Hicks or various Wayne Dyer works. They teach and understand the enlightening principle that joy heals and frees us to live with even greater joy. She wants you to let some larger authority make your decisions for you instead of trusting your own self as the source of authority over your life.
Let Myss stick with energy systems and archetypes. I don't want to hear another word from her about what she clearly has very little real comprehension of. Better yet, after hearing how angry she seems to have become, let her retire and enjoy the enormous profits she has manifested for herself on this life journey.
Both Dr. Myss and Dr. Dyer are incredible on this presentation. I loved it thoroughly. Dr. Dyer has a wonderfully wandering method that hits many important points in a linear organization, while Dr. Myss' style also wanders but in more of a holographic, non-linear organization. Very fascinating. Very entertaining. And most of all very helpful insights.
