Quote for the Day – Dr. Wayne Dyer

Do we know how to be fulfilled in all circumstances?

Can we be fulfilled in a painful situation? For me this is the yardstick for measurement. Can I keep my peace, my joy when I am in a situation of pain. Can I remain happy. Can I not take pain, when pain is being hurled at me. Can I remain loving and detached when someone is asking or telling me something is not appropriate for me to hear, or involved in. Can I discern what I should hear and not hear, speak not speak, see not see, and finally think not think.

Being Intelligent is not being studious. It is knowing how to be fulfilled in all circumstances.

  1. I think to be as emotionally intelligent as this quote beckons one to be would require a lot of work from me. Even as a person of faith I still struggle to loosen the bonds of my own intellect. There’s that tendency to think through various scenarios and try and control the things outside of us which of course is folly. If I truly only have control over my reaction then I must keep my heart open. I must divine Gods plan in my life no matter what is going on outside of me. What would Christ do?

    • Thank you for your wonderful and thoughtful comment.
      I think an open heart is important, and allowing God to direct us helps. God sees what we cannot. If we allow him to guide us, touch us, then we see what the circumstance holds. It is a pure touching, openness, and experience of seeing blessing in everything. It is a heart and mind touched by Gods direction.

      I am not Christian but I am sure the feelings are the same, for anyone who’s heart has been touched by god

      • It’s definitely the same. I try not to get bogged down by the cultural differences explaining spirituality because that always leads to division which God definitely isn’t about. Anyways, I’ve really enjoy this. As a person who constantly gets trapped intellectually it’s nice to be reminded we should always listen to the heart because that’s where God touches us. You guys rock,

    • As a Christian, I think Jesus would like to see us recognize each person in front of us as a child of God whom he loves (no matter how freaking hard that is). In doing this, we have to consider what their emotional need might be and try to connect there gently (really, really hard).

  2. Yes. That level of emotional awareness and or emotional intelligence is often overlooked. Its a delicate balance to keep.

    The reason I say this is because its so easy to become apathetic when you overwork your emotional intelligence. I’m speaking from personal experience and I believe this is different for everyone.

    The quote really sums it up well though. Academia can only get you so far. Being in the moment and taking each hit as it comes consciously gives a level of empowerment like no other.

    I guess what i’m really trying to say is, despite emotional intelligence being vital. Much like anything else in life, we should practice not to lean on it alone (as an absolute) because that brings a host of its own problems. Like the apathy I mentioned.

    Lol sorry for rambling. Safe space and all that 💚

    • Thank you for sharing your thoughts. It is true not to overuse and take each moment as it comes. Each hit is a learning. I find spirituality helps me with each hit.

      Thank you for feeling safe to ramble here. I always ramble when I comment on your posts.

      Have a great reset of the week.

  3. I think you’re right about the balance– we learn this stuff by taking the emotional hits, but too many hits can overwhelm us and cause that apathy.

    Although, as a side note, a little studying can help. Reading literature (especially classic IMO) educates you about the full range of emotions and aids you in recognizing what’s going on in a situation or even just with yourself.

  4. We books are wonerful and the more you know the better off you will be body mind and soul. BUT yes I think about this all the time. I have a hard time of staying happy . I suppose we never are, endlessly. Yeah your emotions can’t be like a yo-yo. Self Mastery.
