They say the Universe whispers in your ear, then taps you on the shoulder, and finally takes a two-by-four to your head….
I was broke, living in a one-room apartment, eating 19-cent boxes of Kraft mac n’ cheese. And I was heartbroken, the love of my life having left me for another man. I was so full of internal struggle and pain I could hardly cross a bridge without fighting the urge to drive off it.
But the worst part was that I had just gone through several years of serious self-improvement therapy!
I had tried everything I knew, I had followed all the ‘expert’ advice. Was the problem that I just hadn’t found ‘the right thing’ yet? Or was it just me; was I broken, beyond repair?
Most people who choose to heal or improve their life come to this point where you’ve done everything you’re supposed to do and your life still doesn’t work. In these moments, when we’ve been knocked down yet again, and are seriously considering whether we even want to get back up, we tend to ask one basic question:
I know I asked that question. A lot. And during a near-death experience, I finally got the answer that not only changed the way I saw my life – and hundreds of thousands of people since — but made me see I had been asking the wrong questions all along.
Just as the oak is already in the acorn, everything we’re meant to be and all we need to fulfill that is already in us—a perfect pattern and divine purpose. And, like the oak from the acorn, when the conditions are right, this innate potential naturally emerges.
When we start from the false premise that we’re broken or inadequate, no matter what technique we use, or how sincere our efforts, it can never lead to true fulfillment, but will keep us in a never- ending battle to improve a self that doesn’t exist.
This is why so many of our attempts to improve ourselves don’t work, or even make things worse. We attract a new mate but have the same old fights. We manifest a bigger paycheck and end up broke at a higher income bracket. Like trying to dig ourselves out of a hole, the harder we dig, the deeper in a hole we get!
With continuing economic stress, unemployment and home loss, many of our external structures of security have been taken away. The wave of wealth-creation books promising instant riches—ironically followed by the biggest economic crash since the Great Depression—has left many seekers feeling disillusioned. Now, more than ever, people are looking for an authentic way to stabilize their life and reclaim their freedom.
At a time when so many are feeling fearful and uprooted, Emergence will bring you home again, where you’ll find peace, inspiration, and the power to finally fulfill the purpose for which you were born.
Part of a new generation of spiritual visionaries and thought leaders, Derek Rydall is the #1 bestselling author of EMERGENCE: Seven Steps for Radical Life Change, which reveals the revolutionary principle, the Law of Emergence, showing people how to tap into the pattern of perfection in any area of their life and create the right conditions for it to unfold. And THE ABUNDANCE PROJECT: 40 Days to More Wealth, Health, Love, and Happiness, where he lays out a time-tested system for activating the Abundance Principle, which sets you free from the belief that outer conditions determine your life and shows you how to generate everything you need no matter what conditions you face.
Rydall’s diverse background includes training top executives at Fortune 500 companies (including American Express and The Walt Disney Company) in empowered leadership and communications, and coaching celebrities and media professionals, including Oscar and Emmy winners, on creating conscious entertainment. As a contributor to top blogs, a frequent podcast guest, and the host of his own top-rated Emergence podcast, he shares cutting-edge spiritual principles and success strategies to help you achieve financial freedom, master productivity and creativity, and live your greatest life’s work at the highest levels of success!
