I learnt most amazing lesson other day.
Once again, in my research I came across a wonderful tape package of Wayne Dyer's latest book. It's called
'There is a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem'
What a wonderful piece of work! Truly inspirational.
Wayne Dyer is known as 'Father of Motivation' by his legion of fans and there's no doubt that this is another excellent example of how he gained his reputation.
A question was asked of me, other day.
'What do you do when there is an 'irritating' relationship present in your life? We just seem to rub each other up wrong way - ALL time, what do I do?'
We sat down and talked about situation and after listening to Dr Dyer's words, decided on a plan of action.
We decided that she would wait for a day when a nasty snipe escaped from this person and apply principles we'd decided on.
Instead of usual cutting remark in reply, she sat quietly for a moment and tried to imagine what kind of a day other person had had. She knew he was tired and upset, so decided to reply with a soothing remark.
She remained calm and asked if he’d had a bad day at office. Silence followed (he'd expected a fight - as usual).
He sat still for a moment tryig to decide if this was a trick, but When he saw look on her face, he knew her concern was genuine. She said then most amazing thing happened.
He visibly relaxed and just started telling her all things that had gone wrong and all he’d had to deal with that day. He said that prospect of then coming home and her shouting at him for being late, once again, had made him even more tense. He dreaded coming home because there was as much stress there as at office.
