I want to begin with the wisest man who ever lived, King Solomon. Enjoy.


“The proverbs of Solomon, the son of David, king of Israel:

¶”To know wisdom and instruction, to perceive the words of understanding, to receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, judgment, and equity; To give prudence to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion- A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel, to understand a proverb and an enigma, the words of the wise and their riddles. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. But fools despise wisdom and instruction. “

{Proverbs 1:1-7}

Teaching and Principals from Wayne Dyer

Principals and Teaching
Choose Quality rather than appearances.
Never allow someone else’s opinion to enable you to feel bad.
What I think about myself it what is most important and not what others think about me.
Choose ethics rather than rules
Embrace the silence with meditation.
You can’t solve a problem with the same mind that caused it.
The law of attraction will not change to accommodate me any more than the law of gravity will.
If I do not believe, expect nothing.
Stop sending out greed with “give me, give me, give me.” And start asking how I can serve? What can I do to make things better for others?
I must see, act, and feel as though I already have what I want and need, never needy or desperate.
Treasure your divinity; you will live forever, so act like it.
Choose knowledge instead of achievement.
You cannot give away what you do not have.
Keep no justified resentments
Don’t die with your music still in you.
Flush the past and bury and remembrance of it and live in the now.
We get what we expect in life, in relationships, and everything. So, what are you expecting today?
