Were you as influenced by the writings of Dr. Wayne Dyer as I was? His notions of personal responsibility and spirituality changed my life when I was young.

I was numb when I heard yesterday that he passed away. His family posted this note on his Facebook Page.

As we begin the week, and with Labor Day a week from today, I want to start by asking you, dear readers, to spend a moment in silence, wishing this beautiful man and soul a peaceful transition into the next phase of his life.

One thing that’s for certain?

The legacy of Dr. Wayne Dyer will live on forever.

Many will write about his books, his speeches, his famous friends etc. but…

Did you know he was raised in a series of foster homes and that his father, an alcoholic, abandoned his family when he was 3 years old?

Did you know that, over his lifetime, he helped raise over 100 million dollars for public broadcasting?

He changed his life, and in so doing, he changed ours.

He WAS #messagesofhope for millions of us, the world over.

Here are two of my favorite quotes of his that have influenced and inspired me over the years. I invite you to please share yours, too, in the comments or over on the Facebook Page of Messages of Hope at

I hope you will join me in sending deepest condolences to Dr. Dyer’s family and all who care so deeply for him over on his Facebook Page at:

He was a transformational spiritual leader and a great humanitarian who had a gift for turning complex ideas into words that could pierce our souls and #makeadifference.

May he rest in eternal peace.
