First, let me warn you about my personal bias when it comes to the works of this author. To me, Dr. Dyer represents the genuine article, no facade, just what-you-see-is-what-you-get. He continues his dedication to generously share with us the wisdom of what he has come to know. In particular, the Universal Laws that, as he sees it, hold it all together and make it all work.
That said, his latest book, I Can See Clearly Now, which spans most of his life, unfolds to be an intimate, candidly written chronicle of his more-than-just-sometimes tumultuous but resolute path to enlightenment. Since enlightenment, the word, carries baggage, hence my definition: Singing the song and dancing the dance in harmony with the One source. Not only observing the world through those eyes, but living your life and making decisions resonate with that inspiration and broader view.
In my opinion, Dr. Dyer nails that definition in deed, as a prolific and gifted writer, master story-teller, lecturer, teacher and selfless humanitarian.
One of the more fascinating aspects of his book for me addresses the phenomenon alluded to in the title… describing seemingly unimportant events, randomly chosen forks, early life experiences or spontaneous encounters that were precursory to later rendezvous of a profound and life-changing nature. I have never thought of it in that way, but it’s eye opening to me to think back in my own life where if Event A hadn’t taken place, then Event B could never have happened. Sometimes freewill is our best friend, sometimes it’s not. But for sure, life is always the consummate teacher.
Since you are looking at book reviews, you…like me…must be a seeker, incredulous at the exploding proliferation of stuff that is out there now (upshot of our so named “time of awakening”). What a mouth-watering time to be in a physical body on planet earth! No matter what genre resonates with you, the underlying message is universal and alludes to one premise: The better that you can get at generating and maintaining a positive attitude and the more air-time you can give it, the better your life is going to work.
I can’t promise you that I Can See Clearly Now is going to enlighten you. (Your definition or mine) But I can promise you an absorbing read, the benefit of wisdom gathered over one persons’ lifetime of dedication, delivered by a master story-teller, with candor, humor and poignancy. What I can promise you is that I personally got all of the above and everything else that I was ready to hear. I would expect nothing else for you or any other seeker. Enjoy!
