The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
This is a fantastic awakening movie about taking the leap and soaring in Purpose. The rewards of faith are spiritual, and with every leap of faith comes an expansion of self. You are so much more than you could ever dream yourself to be! Your part is absolutely essential in the plan, and all of heaven is awaiting your "yes." The Spirit will show the way with signs and clues and you will literally be carried by Grace to ensure you make it to your Destination. It may not always be experienced as "graceful," however, there is never a moment when the way isn't shown, when you have the eyes to see and the courage to keep leaping! The spiritual journey shifts from an experience of seeing missed opportunities and regrets, to soaring with the mighty wings of an eagle, seeing how incredibly all things keep working together for good, for you!

Emotions/Themes: Purpose, Family, Dropping the Mask, Fear, Forgiveness, Dare to Take Step, Trust, Compromise, Fear of Sacrifice, Letting Go of Control
Excerpt: The road to God is filled with inspiration, collaboration, joy, and miracles. Without this Purpose, whatever is sought after will be experienced as empty, because all roadways of this world lead to death and away from God. Fear of change and loss results in the attempt to control the external form, control others, and control the world around us. All things work together for good, and changes are always helpful for expanding the mind beyond the familiar, limited self-concept.

If they are going to make a leap for freedom, they have to do it now! Ultimately, everyone must come to the realization that there is nothing in form—no person, place or thing—that will make us feel complete and whole.
