Master Teacher, Dale Halaway, Offers New Mindset for Change That Growing Numbers of People Are Using to Find Relief
Change is perhaps the oldest and most difficult problem in human society. Physicists say that the observable universe changes ceaselessly. So, the problem of change isn’t going away. Most people only embrace change that is pleasurable and resist the vast majority of other changes that cause any form of discomfort. Unexpected, unpleasant change evokes a range of emotions from mild anxiety to terror or dread.
This unconscious, primarily negative relationship to change continues today. The only difference is that our new technologies are novel distractions. No one has cracked the code on how to maintain inner peace in the face of change. Until now.
“Master Teacher of the Soul” Dale Halaway published the book titled Being Called to Change in February, 2018—it immediately sold out of three editions, rising to the bestseller lists on Amazon on the second day of its release.
It’s important to put the success of this book in context.
Before Freud, no one had given scientific consideration to the problem of pain and pleasure, the ego and spirituality. His 1929 book “Das Unbehagen in der Kultur” (literally, “The Unease in Culture” usually translated “Civilization and Its Discontents.”) states, “[The] purpose of life is simply the program of the pleasure principle…”
The pleasure principle is the natural instinct of every ego to seek pleasure and avoid pain. Freud distinguishes three main sources of painful suffering: our own painful and mortal existence, the cruel and destructive aspects of the natural world, and the suffering from interactions with other human beings in a society. He concludes that the “oceanic feeling” (his term for what we might call spirituality) is a regression to an infantile state (represented by religion) and that the pleasure principle is doomed to fail.
In other words, Freud outlined the problem without giving any viable solution.
A New Mindset for Change
In his book Being Called to Change, Dale Halaway offers a new solution to the ancient intractable problem of Change. He shows how resisting change actually makes suffering worse. Instead, he offers a new path: embracing change.
“[One important] … ego belief is that the world is inherently dangerous,” Halaway says. “When people believe the world isn’t safe, they act out of fear. If we believe that everything is a threat, we protect ourselves and push away the things or people we perceive as dangerous. … When we grow up believing the world is a dangerous place, we may not believe it could be different. Then, someone comes along and shows us [a new path], and we see new possibilities. … Suddenly, we are strengthening our soul, finding our way past the controlling ego, taking charge, creating our world anew. Here’s the deal: strengthening the ego is an unconscious process, but strengthening the soul takes work, consciousness, and dedication.”
What is new in Halaway’s work is that he distinguishes a possible future self, or divine self, which he calls the Soul. Then he shows how to move from the Ego to the Soul. His landmark new book Being Called to Change maps out the first part of the journey.
“Dale takes the complex concept of ‘Change’ and shares with us why we avoid it, how it is inevitable, and the power that comes from embracing it. Dale proves his statement, ‘change is inevitable, resistance is optional’. An entrepreneur’s must read.”
