I’m here with another sneak peek that I was able to grab from the producers of the When Everything Changes, Change Everything: Highlights from an Extraordinary Spiritual Renewal Retreat with Neale Donald Walsch DVD, which presents a huge number of the tools in his book and how to apply them into real life situations.
Ever Got Your Hopes Up For Nothing?
One attendee felt like he had lost it all. He was a filmmaker who had mad passion for his film, only to have his project be picked up by a studio. All his dreams and aspirations looked like they were finally going to come true. Contracts were being drawn up, production schedules being set. He felt he had finally made his big break.
And then, one day, it all stopped.
The studio dropped his project, and it was deemed “impossible” to be made even by another studio due to the specific type of project. He felt his dreams shatter. He said he understands that he should be okay with it and move on, but it’s easier said than done. “How do you let go?” he asks.
Neale offers these words:
Sometimes we confuse purpose with function. And we think that our purpose is to achieve something and that there’s only one way to function that out. But if we get very clear, we get very aware that the fulfilling of a purpose does not require the performing of a specific function in a particular way. There may be other ways to meet that same purpose. Most people because of the limited perspective that they hold confuse function and purpose. And when the function is taken away it looks as if the purpose can’t be fulfilled.
Neale also explains what happens when we realize that there are other ways to fulfill our purpose than just one, and explores how to determine what one’s purpose is.
Waiting For the Right Door
It’s important to remember that just because one door closes it doesn’t necessarily mean that your idea is not sound — there are plenty of other doors that will make themselves available to you when you are in alignment with your purpose.
Sometimes those doors also don’t look exactly like what we expect — so it’s also important not to try and control the outcome (i.e. ‘I only want a pink door with oak finishes‘ instead of allowing: ‘I trust the Universe’s door will be the quickest way to my success’).
We sometimes give up just before the right door is about to open.
Is Today the Day to Take Charge and Change your Situation?
If you are at a loss as to how to navigate the changes in your life, I recommend this informative and memorable time with Neale, all packed into a 7-disc DVD set of highlights from his Spiritual Renewal Retreat, which has just been released today, Thursday, April 24th.
Obviously nothing can compare with attending one of Neale’s retreats in person, but these highlights, filmed at an actual live retreat, give you the next best thing.
Just click the link below to gift yourself (or a friend/loved one) with this life-changing DVD set. Or, perhaps you know someone who you feel could benefit from a new perspective on the changes we all face in the world right now…
