This beautiful doc is about some very loving filmmakers who help two men stuck in the dark depths of alcohol addiction try to step back into the Light.
I won't talk much about the story because I know you are going to tune in to OWN Sunday morning at 11/10c to watch "Super Soul Sunday"! So what I'm going to talk about here on the blog is the deep meaning in this amazing piece and how it applies to YOUR life!
The takeaway for me from this moving film is that no matter how dark your life may be, no matter how impossible it may seem to overcome the challenges in your life, there is an answer, and there is a way out.
I'm reminded of one of my favorite Wayne Dyer quotes. He says, "I am realistic; I expect miracles." Wayne doesn't say this from an arrogant point of view! NO! Rather he understands how The Uni-verse works. The Uni-verse is like a miracle machine. And if we are looking for miracles in our lives, we will begin to see them everywhere.

The real secret is...the ones who help others enjoy a healthy dose of positive energy feedback.
I often say making the film Lost in Woonsocket revealed that life secret to me. In the beginning, we were making a documentary TV series about helping people. Regardless of whether our help worked, the team and I began to notice how amazing we felt inside. The feeling just kept building and building. It was pure energy.
Personally, I was left with a full heart and content to a degree that I had never felt before. Energized, empowered and proud. Yes, we were all frustrated that the good deeds were not always the cure for those we met, but somehow the act itself changed us. Fortunately, all of our brains are wired to respond in a positive way when reaching outside of ourselves.
Perhaps this is why firefighters are generally perceived as happier than cops.
