He wrote the book called, "Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life," which uses the TAO as its focus. It's merely a repackaging of Norman Vincent Peale's, "The Power of Positive Thinking," using Taoism as its philosophy rather than Christianity.
Dyer says there is "no enemy" yet, I disagree. I've read The Art of War and I think unless we know how to respond to adversity (and no one can deny that life is full of it), we're just floating along pretending that nothing bad exists in life.
Dyer says, "Everything is perfect" and "is as it should be" and nothing is good or bad...it just is.
This sounds great...until I analyze it. Would it be "perfect" if my legs were amputated and I starved to death while being raped by Gorillas in the wilderness? I mean, let's face it...shit happens. Life isn't always easy or fair and I feel like Dyer makes it seem like life should be wonderful, fair and effortless. Easy to say when you live on an island in Hawaii and you're filthy rich.
I think he's like my Brownie Preacher. Slightly out of touch with reality.
Not to mention that he doesn't take into account that some people have brain chemistry problems.
