Choice Point (2012)

Available worldwide

Choice points are times you can stop, reflect and look for answers. At your choice point, you have an opportunity to (1) understand your world, (2) align your purpose, (3) be the change.

At this moment in history, we’re faced with one of the biggest choice points we have ever encountered. Individuals are making choices to change their nations; nature is giving us a wake-up call; economies are struggling; and for many of us, the future looks uncertain. Yet people are also rallying to have a voice, awakening from their apathy of previous decades. Collectively and individually, we are being given the opportunity to make extraordinary choices in order to change where we are headed.

Discover how to understand your world like never before, how to align your own true purpose with the patterns of the universe, and finally, how to be the change that you want to see in the world around you.

This doco completely resonated with me. I'm always excited about change but not always committed to see things through and BE the change. Interesting that I always have commentary on the world around me, without realizing that I have a role in what I observe. Very insightful doco and loved it so much I've watched it 4 times in the span of 2 days. Inspiring, uplifting and has an energy about it that I completely crave to have in my own life. AAA+++++

This movie really "spoke" to me and I do hope that I can make use of the information given in it. Im at a choice point, and I have identified my strengths for making changes in myself. I would really be grateful if I could find a way to connect with others so that I too can make the move forward and be the change. Barbara spoke to a "synergy" where we could choose others with similar skills and share. Does anyone know of such a site?

I searched for the book he referred to "Moment by moment and the practice and the art of meditation " but no thing exists under this title
What I found instead is : "Moment by Moment: The Art and Practice of Mindfulness" is that what he meant probably?

i didnt like the content of the film. It wasn't that awe gripping. But the cinematography is amazing!

It is an eye opener because it gives one the life Big picture and an opportunity for one to change for the better. Awesome!

I used not to understand this sentence : "in order to change the world, we have to change ourselves first". I thought of myself as a good person and I didn't see what I could change in myself to be an even better person in the world. The only problem is that I wasn't living the life I wanted to live, so I wasn't a happy person and I couldn't see the connection with the world around. This film makes it very clear: the only way to create a better world is to be a happy person, to live a life that has purpose and meaning. We human beings are never as good as when we enjoy every second of our life.

The work you are doing is absolutely Wonderful. When we all can do this we will be living in the world that we all hope for.

What a wonderful movie with an even better option for our world on how to work towards working with each other. Loved this movie.

I am so thankful that Gaiam TV offers an abundance of films like this one, "Choice Point." This film is inspiring, and makes you want to "be the change." A world filled with peace, love, health, joy, abundance is one we are all capable of creating. My dream has been to open a fresh juice bar since I discovered ( 2 years ago) the profound, health benefits that fresh-pressed juice has had on my health. I want to help people to be healthy. I need to figure out a way to finance it! Where there is a will, there is a way....And, this lovely film remindeds me of that. I wish everyone would watch this film.

Great. Every day ask yourself what can i Do Today to get One step closer to reaching my goal. The important thing is that you then Must Do IT, how ever trivial and or challenging. Before you know it things will start happening and you will gain momentum. This is what has helped me to start two great businesses from two empty hands and no money and i didnt know very much about the business. Didnt matter, the right people and oppurtnuities just lined up. So be persistent and the Universe Will Partner up with you eventually.

You will basically Bend the Universe with your Will and Persistance!!!

I enjoyed this program very much. I believe it is right on in every way I am able to understand. Together we can change the world to be a much better place.
And we must start with ourselves.

joxyjules, posted on December 31, 2014

I've seen many videos of people who made a difference, but this one stands out above the rest. You can't just watch and say, "oh how great those people are to do this"... through the entire film you want to figure out and commit to 'how to BE this'. If everyone who watches even commits to the smallest of gestures with an outstretched hand... it could truly change this world.

This is an excellent production which has really touched me. I am now at my own Choice Point between being a chemical engineer who specializes in color - measurement, control, and all systems of support in the papermaking industry AND a person who helps others who are trying to recover from their addictions.

Choice Point has come at an opportune time for me; I'm 1/3 of the way through life (at age 53), and I'm searching for my purpose and most resounding means of giving back to others while continuing to earn a living. Harry Massey's story is familiar to me as one who has dealt with bipolar disorder (under control for some time now). We all have our trials, our rewards, and our gifts to share.

I am ready to learn and to share.

All the best to everyone who has found this path,

P.S. Tom Shadyac's I AM is a very good movie. Please also see this one: PEOPLE v. THE STATE OF ILLUSION

I needed to hear this, having reached my ''choice point'' yet still trying to find my soul purpose. So many visionaries in this video. Also, Gregg Braden is one of my favorite speakers. Will definitely view ''I am'' now. Thank you for sharing this inspiration.

Estelle, posted on August 13, 2014

Also see I AM (2011) by Tom Shadyac!

roubert, posted on July 23, 2014

Great moments of sharing... the communcation with the other is always dificult to put in place when it come from the head ... I want to pass the approach of the other with the language of the heart ... I am still learning to do so ... This very nice film show me the road to follow..


chekeshayo, posted on July 8, 2014

More people need to understand the concepts in this documentary. Too many feel that they must accept the lot they feel has been handed to them in life.
We must understand that we are all co-creators with the universe and that fear is the only thing holding us back from the being the change we want to see in the world. I sometimes get off track myself but I know that I can stop and just be in the moment and reel myself back in to my inner sanctum and find the balance I need to get on with my purpose.
Thanks for a marvelous piece of work. The little kid on the better food and health mission really touched me.

Is there any? I'm inspired all the time, but not sure why don't I move on it. It could be fear, but I've conquered that in the past?? Help.

I sat through this movie last night and was left completely uninspired. Lot's of blurbs, lots of talk about personal life struggles and triumphs, and I just couldn't connect. None of it grabbed me even a little. WEll ok, that's not true. I LOVED the section about the folks getting the hearing aids - that was moving.

I was inspired by your comment. Honesty is a step in your own personal choice point. I thank you humbly for your words. It takes courage to swim upstream.

threedoglynn, posted on September 18, 2014

so sad for you...

MARKC, posted on September 2, 2014

If you did not connect with this movie, then perhaps you are not yet ready (or in need of) a shift in your life.

Please also see the movie, PEOPLE V. THE STATE OF ILLUSION. If you don't resonate with that one either,
then relax . . . your life is fine.

Best regards,

I get it......... I agree.
Defining my own contribution..........thank you for reminder that I don't need permission, and I need to just start........... somewhere.

kathpotter57, posted on November 2, 2013

Agree with every post on this page. I have shared this film on facebook - everyone will benefit from the conversation in this film. My deepest/most engaging conversations are beautifully explored in this film - the core things I am passionate about: Patterns, synergy, fractal geometry, Fibonacci sequence, freedom to be completely self-expressed, intuition, service, compassion, love (first for our glorious selves, shining out from that complete source to all around us). We are heading into sensory overload on every conceivable front - technology, knowledge, medicine, consciousness, population growth, pollution, poverty, disease - they are all on exponential accelerated paths approaching an end point beyond which our computer models and current brain functions cannot see. We are already at a point that our old models of thinking cannot function effectively. Human beings will transcend the 'mind' and access the all-knowing potential we were gifted with. We are a young species using a fraction of our brain and cellular potential - there is limitless possibility for expansion in consciousness/creativity. I welcome and anticipate your response to these thoughts. I love you.

I wish everyone could see this movie. I too am at a changing point struggling with how to spread the love and knowledge I've gained in my life. Suddenly the things I used to do and and not question are no ok with me any more. I am at a changing point and am praying that I will choose the right pathway for me and anyone I can help along their way. Namaste

Candrews, posted on October 30, 2013

I feel I am at a choice point, timely film, and I appreciated the testimonials and perspective of really living the deep purpose.

kerri888, posted on October 30, 2013

Inspirational film that let's us know our hopes and wishes for a new humanity are not dreams limited to our headspace but realities now in the world waiting for us to get on board. MORE ON OUR 'ELDERS' group please. Peace and love

This was a wonderful movie. I'm sharing it with my loved ones and hope that they too will feel driven to align collectively with others toward making steps toward global change for all of us.

Watching Choice Point was an uplifting experience. Now I want to see what I can contribute to the world.

tgarrett, posted on October 19, 2013

Wouldn't it be good to show this in all businesses and schools as a 'motivational' film - just to show people that they actually DO have a choice. Sometimes we believe that to change our lives we do need more money or resources or a good start - "if only I had more of...". However, I have seen in my own home town, that sometimes it is the people who have nothing or are given the worst start in life - these are the ones who make the difference because they have nothing else to lose, they understand what it is like not to be given opportunities so they have a greater desire to offer them to others. I have also found that the smallest ideas and acts can have a great affect because they create the first spark that leads to bigger change.

Thanks Gaiam tv - the resources you offer are incredibly inspiring!

suzysummit, posted on October 18, 2013

Thanks, Gaiam tv team, for bringing this film to us. Powerfully moving and relevant.

amberle18, posted on October 18, 2013

What a beautiful, amazing and inspiring piece. Drenched in empowerment, wisdom and energy, this movie motivates all that is good within you and within our world. It shows you the bigger picture and your ability, no matter your current place in life, to move forward with gratitude and true purpose to change the world for the better. It speaks of lending your voice to the song of the universe and the peace that comes from that.

This is my favorite viewing on Gaiam TV so far. Superb!
