Oprah Winfrey and OWN are beginning Sunday morning programming designed to “nourish the mind, body, and spirit… to help viewers awaken their best selves and discover a deeper connection to the world around them.” Super Soul Sunday sounds like a spiritual journey that is worth taking. The first episode will air an unusual documentary entitled “Wake Up.” In it, a common man, Jonas Elrod sets out to find out why he has started seeing ghosts, and demons, and things.
Throughout the film, Jonas’ loving yet doubting girlfriend Mara supports him but questions his experiences along the way. Her skepticism leads to her own profound awakening we witness firsthand. The film culminates in the realization that Jonas’s “special ability” is the inspiration for him to discover who he really is and get more out of life. Jonas’ captivating journey to explore larger truths about the universe and everyone in it reveals how all of us can search inward for our own peace and happiness. It’s an invitation to accept that there is more to this life than meets the eye.
I have had experiences in the spiritual realm. They are more real to me than the physical ones that I experience each day. Spirituality is a strength of mine. I believe in balance. A good balance of mind, body, and spirit is desirable. I believe that spiritual food is more needed than physical food. Physical food is temporary. Spiritual food is eternal.
The Seven Steps Foundation has a clear focus on balance, courage, and seeking oneness with the good in the universe. Inspiration plays a key role in living the Seven Steps, and making dreams come true.
Thank you Oprah Winfrey, and OWN, for encouraging personal growth and discovery. The more I know who I am, the more I have to share.
