Dr. Dyer shares his view that we're living in an age of spiritual deficiency. We have more than enough information in our society it's spirituality that's lacking.
First and foremost, spiritually advanced people must have a "burning desire" to become as spiritually fulfilled as possible'even if they're seen as running against the pack, or, as his spiritual mentor, Henry David Thoreau said, "marching to the beat of their own drummer."
Dr. Dyer's ten principles include:
Being open to everything and attached to nothing.
Understanding that there are no justified resentments in life.
Embracing silence, since meditation is the only way to truly come to know your Source.
Knowing that you can't solve a problem with the same mind that created it.
Treating yourself as if you already are what you'd like to become.
