Ambition to Meaning: Wayne Dyer and his Movie “The Shift”


Dr. Wayne Dyer,  "Father of Motivation", transitioned on August 30th.  Shortly after his transition, his 2009 movie “The Shift” was released in his honor.  This beautiful movie touched my life and has touched everyone that I've shared it with.   Today, I ran across it on You Tube and I had to share it with you! 

One of my favorite lines...

"Thoroughly unprepared, we take a step into the afternoon of life- with the false notion that our ideals and truths will serve us as hither to- but, we cannot live life's morning in the afternoon because what was great in the morning will become little in the evening- and what was true in the morning will become a lie."

So What is The Shift?

In his blog, Wayne Dyer shares, "The first shift that we all make takes us from nonbeing to being;
from Spirit to form; from the invisible to our corporeal world of things. The next shift is the phase I call Ambition where we take on an ego self that is the opposite of the place of Spirit from which we came. Ego in this context is our false self. These first two shifts are mandatory in the human journey. Unfortunately, for many people, Ambition is often the end of their life story.

But there are two more shifts open to us. We can all choose to make the leap past the second shift of ego-driven ambition. We arrive at the third shift when we realize that we have an option to make a U-turn away from the false self. We can do an about-face and head back to the place of Spirit in a third shift. And then, in the fourth shift, we achieve a life of Meaning and purpose by rededicating our Ambition to the fulfillment of our authentic self. We discover that the laws of the material world do not necessarily apply in the presence of the Meaning that is encouraged by our shift to Source. Manifestations of miracles begin to populate the landscape of life. Meaning is now what defines all the moments of our existence. We can fulfill our greatest calling when we consciously undertake the journey from Ambition to Meaning. We can transform our individual lives and influence the
destiny of our sacred planet as well."

I do hope you enjoy the movie.  Thank You Dr. Dyer.  Your legacy lives on!

With Love,
