This week’s topic: Chapter 18 of “Change your thoughts, Change your life. Living the wisdom of the Tao” by Wayne Dyer
Living without Rules; Rules, Rules and more Rules… Do we really need them?
Living without rules? Today as I got ready to work on this blog post I re-read Verse 18 in Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book “Change your Thoughts – Change your Life. Living the Wisdom of the Tao”.
I have to admit that this chapter was a hard read for me. Those who know me know I like parameters to live with and work with. Being an accountant does that to you! But, as I reread it again and really tried to focus on the idea he was trying to reveal, I realized that it was really showing me a different way of looking at how to live my life that truly resonates with my beliefs.
I believe humanity has lost much of its pure heart over the ages, but it hasn’t been fully erased. If we change the way we look at why we have rules and regulations, we realize as stated in the beginning of the book, that rules and regulations are born out of “evil and mistrust due man’s inner fears”.
I believe that deep down we are afraid to look within at our own dark selves and to cut out what has become so ingrained in our hearts. We have let it become such a comfortable part of our lives, that we don’t realize it’s there.
Living without rules: Do we really want what we say we want?
We all say we want these things, but do we really? Are we really ready to “Make that change” to quote a short snippet from a song- to really look at the Man/Woman in the mirror. To make that change. To live out of true love.
When we’re able to do that, we realize we don’t need all the rules & regulations, the lawyers & politicians, and law after law, telling us we need this license or that paper to own this or that. By living in true love of the heart, we then live out of true respect for others and don’t feel the need to call ownership to everything around. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying there isn’t a need for genuine etiquette or behaviors to follow.
However, I believe they will be born out of a different spirit in the heart.
Living without rules: Live from your heart
Think about it. If we all lived out of our hearts, like when a natural disaster strikes or a truly horrific situation occurs and your heart goes out to those involved in the situation. If we lived like that every day, what type of world do you see it being? If we live out our lives truly and authentically like we all say we want to do, do you think we would have all the issues going on in the world as we do today?
