The bestselling author of Your Erroneous Zones, Pulling Your Own Strings, and Wisdom of the Ages combines psychological insights and guidelines for achieving spiritual fulfillment to present a three-step program designed to help readers look inside themselves to find a new sense of self-awareness and spiritual joy.
Developing the sacred self, Wayne Dyer explains, brings an understanding of our place in the world and a sense of satisfaction in ourselves and others. In Your Sacred Self, Dyer offers a program that helps listeners establish a spiritually-oriented, rather than an ego-oriented, approach to life. Step by step, Dyer shows us how to progress from emotional awareness to psychological insight to spiritual alternatives in order to change our experience of life from the need to acquire to a sense of abundance; from a sense of one's self as sinful and inferior to a sense of one's self as divine; from a need to achieve and acquire to an awareness that detachment and letting go bring freedom.
Your Sacred Self is an inspiring, hopeful, illuminating guide that can help everyone live a happier, richer, more meaningful life.
Every problem, Dyer asserts, has a solution in the ``sacred self.'' Our sacred, or spiritual, selves, he explains, represent our true natures. But we lose touch with the sacred self through the interference of ego, which produces anxieties and leads us to feel frustration, strife and pain and to inflict these on others. Here Dyer (Your Erroneous Zones) offers strategies for freeing oneself from the tyranny of ego and getting back in touch with the sacred self. He suggests that it is only through this reformation of individual consciousness that global problems such as war and poverty can be overcome. Peppered with inspirational quotes from sources as diverse as Emily Dickinson and Janis Joplin, his manual is noteworthy for its encouragement of tolerance and self-acceptance. But his reliance on New Age rhetoric will probably leave skeptical readers unconvinced. Author tour.
