Ten Principles for Success and Inner Peace

The First Principle:
Have a Mind That Is Open to Everything and Attached to Nothing

The scriptures say, “With God all things are possible.”

Now tell me, what does that leave out?

Wayne DyerThere are billions and billions of planets, objects, and stars in our galaxy alone, and there are uncountable billions of galaxies out there. We are a specks in an incomprehensibly vast universe that has no end to it . . . how can anyone be a pessimist in a world where we know so little?

An open mind allows you to explore and create and grow. A closed mind seals off any such creative explanation. Remember that progress would be impossible if we always did things the way we always have. The ability to participate in miracles — true miracles in your life — happens when you open your mind to your limitless potential . . . refuse to allow yourself to have low expectations about what you’re capable of creating.

Understand that what you think about expands . . . If your thoughts are filled with doubt and you have a closed mind, you will of necessity act upon those closed-mindedness doubts, and you’ll see evidence of your thinking virtually everywhere you are. On the other hand, should you decide (make no mistake about this, it is a choice) to have a mind that’s open to everything, then you’ll act upon that inner energy, and you’ll be the creator of as well as the recipient of miracles wherever you are.

The Wayne Dyer videos that I had put into this and the other posts from this series were removed from YouTube – I am doing my best to replace them when I find suitable substitutes.

From early childhood we have been conditioned to accept the world the way our parents, teachers, friends and culture tell us it is and this conditioning may make it hard for us to keep an open mind that’s not attached to the achievement of culturally accepted outcomes.

It’s possible to have a burning desire yet not have attachments. You can have an inner vision of what you intend to manifest and still detach yourself from the outcome . . . When you detach from the outcome, you’re at peace; and you’ll ultimately see the fruits of your convictions . . . Simply have a mind that is open to everything but attached to nothing. Let it all come and go as it will. Enjoy it all, but never make your happiness or success dependent on an attachment to any thing, any place, and particularly, any person.

In all of your relationships, if you can love someone enough to allow them to be exactly what they choose to be without any expectations or attachments from you, you’ll know true peace in your lifetime. True love means you love a person for what they are, not for what you think they should be. This is an open mind and an absence of attachment.
