Christmas is undoubtedly a very special time of year. From the tree, to the gifts, to the time spent with family… But mostly, it’s a time of reflections. Reflections about your achievements during last year, the stage that you are in, the people you are surrounded by, the worth of your material belongings, your professional and personal status…
Once you got your conclusions, the list of next year goals is started to be put on the paper. Before you start with it, from the Uppers we would like to use this great opportunity, and participate in the mentioned planning process by sharing the ideas that inspires and guides us.
We are actually big fans of Dr. Wayne Dyer – a guru of journey of spiritual reconnection. He was an American philosopher, self-help author, and a motivational speaker. His first book, Your Erroneous Zones (1976), is one of the best-selling books of all time, with an estimated 35 million copies sold to date.
Dr. Wayne Dyer best pieces
“My beliefs are that the truth is a truth until you organize it, and then it becomes a lie. I don’t think that Jesus was teaching Christianity, Jesus was teaching kindness, love, concern, and peace. What I tell people is don’t be Christian, be Christ-like. Don’t be Buddhist, be Buddha-like.” he stated.
Our favorite piece created by Dr. Wayne Dyer is his movie ¨The Shift¨. The concepts in it that really empower us are the things Dyer says about surrendering, being of service and connecting to a higher energy or Source and just let it work through you.
We need shift
We spend so much of our lives pushing, striving to attain some status, acquire something, know some important person, or earn some amount of money. We errantly believe that once we make that first million, or drive that Mercedes, then we will have arrived. But as anyone who’s accomplished any of these ego-driven goals can attest, once you reach one false horizon, another somehow appears. Then another. And another. We never get there, not this way. And our ego-driven, ambition-laden lives prevent us from enjoying our precious present moments.
In the meantime, we often suffer anxiety, depression and a general sense of distraction and discontent. Inevitably, we hit a wall. Who among us hasn’t hit that wall in our lives, that trying time when we ask ourselves the nagging existential question, “Is this all there is?”
We need shift.
