“Don’t Die With Your Music Still in You” is the latest offering from motivational speaker and positive-thinking enthusiast, Dr Wayne Dyer. The wonderful thing about this book is that is it co-authored by his daughter, Serena. Each chapter highlights the principles around success and inner peace.
It is based on Wayne’s previous book “10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace” which goes into detail about the following principles:
1. Don’t die with your music still in you
2. Have a mind that is open to everything and attached to nothing
3. You can’t give away what you don’t have
4. Embrace silence
5. Give up your personal history
6. You can’t solve a problem with the same mind that created it
7. There are no justified resentments
8. Treat yourself as if you already are what you’d like to be
9. Treasure your divinity
10. Wisdom is avoiding all thoughts that weaken you
Each chapter highlights each of the teachings and brings an intensely personal angle to them, with Serena and Wayne writing about the effects these principles has had on their lives and their father-daughter connection.
Serena tells delightful tails about how her father (Wayne Dyer) used these principles in raising her and her 7 brothers and sisters. She has found that the first principle has had the most profound effect on her life and really relates to living a life that you were meant to have, and not one that you have been forced or pressured into. Serena and Wyne Dyer believe that we are all born with a purpose that excites us and makes us feel alive.
This book is filled with wonderful inspirational quotes to live by and you get to learn what it was like being raised by spiritually aware parents. Serena’s mother, Marcelene was an avid meditater and wonderful listener which had a profound impact on her children.
Some of the themes that run through this book are: the importance of listening to your intuition, following your heart, finding meaning in life, living mindfully, living in love, gratitude and positive thinking.
