This is one of those books that you can pick up, flip to a random page, and immediately gain something personally from it. Although everything wasn't appealing, the parts that were worked wonders. This book really helped me in my college years when my mind would be racing about what major I was going to choose, who/how I wanted to be, or what I was going to do after I even graduated college! I would be racing about decisions that didn't even have to be made for 4 more years! The book really give ...more
Basically, 1) the nagging voice in our heads is Ego, which likes to keep us generally poisoned with bad emotions: fear of failing, judging others to make ourselves feel bigger, competing for fancy things to prove our worth, and feeling ugly/fat/stupid so we stay locked in our ego-prison. The premise of the book is that 2) we are all made of the same energy particles and are therefore, divine. Like in yoga, "namaste" means "the divine in me salutes the divine in you" or the like. So this metaphys ...more
The first two parts of the book (up to 'The Four Keys of Awareness') were great. Then it got into Transcending our Ego Identities which became a lot of Ego vs Our Higher self and the war with our Ego. It made me question 'so why do we even have an Ego in the first place' (which I answered for myself. While I believe we need one, I agree we should put it aside to live with our higher self).

Pros: I did earmark a lot of pages in the first 2 parts. And the examples of how we can rise to our higher s

I saw Wayne Dyer on an infomercial once and was pretty impressed with some of the things he was saying. Hence, I bought this book. I learned a great deal from it and looked at particular things in different ways than I had in the past. Parts of the book seemed boring to me but for the most part I enjoyed it.
I was mesmerized by the beauty and wisdom in this book.Wayne Dyer takes us on a journey where the spirit triumph over ego. This book will serve as an extremely valuable guide to all those who seek the exultation of the spiritual experience and who value total freedom as the ultimate goal of life.

From my journal dated December 21, 1996:

"The Four Keys to Higher Awareness"
1. Banish the doubt-I rid myself of my doubts by remembering there is a valid reason for everything that happens.
2. Cultivate the "Witness"-I realize that I am free to let go and observe my life. "I was thinking to myself...that phrase implies there are two people rather than one. One person is the "I" doing the thinking. The other person is the "self" receiving the thinker's thoughts. The "I" is talking to the "Self". Wh

Non mi ha particolarmente colpito, ma lo rileggerò, perché Dyer riesce sempre a sorprendermi.
Spiritual smorgasbord approach to spiritual teachings. Short with suggestions on how to integrate ideas he provides into one's life.
Oy...I should write a review. I could not stay awake. For the parts that I was able to stay awake for, there was some stuff that I thought "No DUH!", and others that I thought "Wow....that is cool". Maybe when I finish reading all of it, my rating will change and my review will be worth something more than what I just wrote. The good news is, Wayne no longer has that awful mustache.

Dr. Wayne Dyer has a LOT of books, so I'm always getting asked which ones I recommend. A lot of them do tend to repeat themselves, so I'm pleased to recommend this one at the top of my list. This is, I think, the one that has the most guts to it. It's authentic and real, and will definitely help make you a better person.
THis was a slow book to read cause there was so much to think about and relate back to myself. So far all of his books have been very worthwhile to read.

I love his referrals to other books/writers.

Great book - helpful in living a very calm authentic life
Amazing book by all means .... It discuss man's struggle between ego & higher self throughout his life ...also it deals with the development of human spirit & it's journey searching for peace,happiness ,satisfaction & a real meaning, in a very objective way .
I like watching Mr. Dyer on PBS. I have a hard time reading his books. I like them, I just can't read very much at a time. I have to let them soak in.

Excellent and clear, this book in Wayne Dyer's simple, conversational intimate style is filled with meaningful examples and transformative exercises.

it changed me a lot on how i view life on different it!!!!

This is a great book, not easy to get these information that easy, normally you go to a guru and spend year to listen to these information.
I started reading this a few years back and finally picked it back up again. It's actually making sense this time.
I've read a lot of self-help books in the past 3 years and this one really changed my everyday thoughts.
Dr. Dyer writes as though he is speaking directly to the readers. He is a fount of knowledge.
