The Power of Positivity

ABC’s Dan Harris interviewed Dr. Wayne Dyer recently. In the interview, they mention Wayne’s new movie, The Shift, that I have been meaning to blog about for some time. I watched it about two months ago via my Spiritual Cinema Circle membership, which allows access to four or five new uplifting movies every month. The set up is brilliant as you follow the stressed out documentary filmmaker and Zen-like Wayne meet at the intersection of spirit and inspiration.

The Shift is about the afternoon of your life, in which you shift from ego talk to spirit. For me, the Shift happened around age thirty-eight. I started to realize the full potential of the human spirit and began living according to its principles. The Power of Slow was the result.

Does it matter that no one seems to want the foreign rights to the book? No. Does it matter that it has yet to hit the best-seller list? No. What matters is the message, and I have vowed to promote its ideals the way I wrote it ~ through trust, instinct and a deep listening from within.

Many of us may be able to relate to ABC anchor Dan Harris’s attitude toward his job. In this interview, he worries that if he ‘lets go,’ he’ll lose. How many times have I thought that myself? Somewhere along the line, I thought I have nothing to lose but fear itself. Taking the plunge is something I do almost daily now.Yes, I experience those milliseconds of dread before I do the one thing that scares me so much, but the reward is the energy that gets created by the overcoming itself.

Give yourself the gift of these nine minutes and twenty seconds. They will make a difference in your day.

Oh, and please leave a comment answering the following question:

If you had the choice between all the material possessions you’ve ever wanted and a life of complete inner peace, which one would you choose and why?

    Sorry to be the proverbial wet blanket about this, but without certain material possessions, especially the current gifts of technology that allow me to stay in contact with family and treasured friends, I doubt that I would have much inner peace. However, I do see a value in striving for a sane balance between useful material possessions and a peace of mind that encourages me to treat people decently.

      Hey Mary Jo ~ thanks for your comment! It’s not about relinquishing all material possessions, but about understanding that without inner peace, you cannot enjoy them. Best to you! ~Christine
