"There is a place deep within us that wants to feel fulfilled. . . . Wherever you are; you're only a thought away from changing your life."
, a movie with Dr. Wayne Dyer, is not a movie I would have chosen to watch. I respect Dr. Dyer's work. I agree with him. I just have never been able to read his books. So why did I end up watching this movie and writing about it? I received a Cosmic Postcard. A friend who is familiar with my struggles and who knows my story intimately suggested I watch it. When she watched it, she thought of herself, of me, of my husband.
I fell asleep the first time I tried to watch it. The next morning I joined a group of friends for a morning meeting and the topic of discussion was, "How did you shift your perception? How did you shift your attitude from selfishness to compassion?" For the next hour I listened to other people's stories about changing their lives.
t about a movie being filmed of Dr. Wayne Dyer. It must be based on his book, The Shift: Taking Your Life from Ambition to Meaning
. As Dr. Dyer tells his own story of making a shift, the movie also follows three other characters who are struggling in life and need a shift of their own.
The movie reminded me of why I'm here. It reminded me of the day I stood in a marriage counselors office with tears streaming down my face, passionately declaring that I had such a huge desire to help people that I would do anything to do it, including leaving my husband. Sometimes I forget that as I swirl around in this place of uncertainty and sadness. I don't know if watching this movie will inspire me to action. I hope it inspires you.
