You May Be Right About That

Long ago, I knew that my life’s work was to encourage and inspire people to live more positive, healthy lives. Occasionally, I’ve encountered people who disagree with my premises on spirituality and feel compelled to tell me—often very stridently—how misguided I am.

I like being challenged, but only in the spirit of Let’s both learn from this, not in the spirit of I’m right, you’re wrong, and my way is the only way. At first, I tried to answer such attacks, thinking that perhaps we could at least have a cordial discussion even if we ultimately agreed to disagree.

Wayne Dyer


I quickly discovered that I was being naive. I like the way Wayne Dyer handles this. When somebody tries to criticize him in a non-constructive way, he replies with six words—”You may be right about that”—and moves on.

Wayne is a very wise man. Every minute he devotes to a dead-end argument is a minute taken away form his mission of helping others improve their lives. Therefore, I decided to spend all of my time and energy on people who are open to my message and are actively working to better their lives. If someone is abusive, I will wish them well and keep moving.





I love the way this quote sums it all up so beautifully:

To work in the world lovingly means that we are defining what we will be for, rather than reacting to what we are against.
Christina Baldwin

    Dear Phil, Thank you for checking in about my quote. Yes, I said it, and as you know the “brilliance” you experience about it comes from and through a larger source. Your writing looks very interesting–I will check it out when I come up for air. Right now (Write NOW!) I am doing the edits on my next book due out in early 2010. Meanwhile, have fun on the Storycatcher blog and all success with the goodness you are depositing in the world. And if you do a sequel to the Sixty Seconds book, I’d love to be considered… Blessings on your day, Christina B.
