…is the title of a documentary directed by Tom Shadyac, the same man who directed comedies like Ace Ventura and Bruce Almighty. I watched it over the weekend, and I highly, strongly, recommend it. If I could, I’d make it a requirement of world citizenry. The basic premise is one I’ve talked about here repeatedly: Our world, be it inner or outer, is our own doing and because it is, we have the power to alter it. What’s wrong with the world? I am. What’s right with the world? I am.
Shadyac was sent on this wild departure from his usual silly romps by a near fatal accident and the down time inflicted by his recovery. That’s a story so often told it’s almost trite at this point, but for me, it brought up a deeper recognition of a pattern in my life, living a life in constant fear of upsetting someone, or disapproval. Ms. O. Winfrey has called this the disease to please. It’s going to end my life sooner rather than later if I don’t change the way I experience life.
Tomorrow I talk about the sheep poop and feeling it all.
