Oprah explores what she calls one of the most important laws of physics and in life: Newton’s Third Law of Motion. Oprah explains why she lives her life by this law, which states, "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Oprah then explains to an audience why she believes the law affects everything we do physically, emotionally, financially and spiritually. She says, “The energy you’re putting out right now is coming back to you all the time whether you recognize it or not. And, if you can become conscious of that then it will change the way you operate your entire life.” Oprah also talks about Newton’s Third Law of Motion with filmmaker Tom Shadyac who gave up his glamorous Hollywood life after a near death accident.
Several years ago, Tom Shadyac seemed to have it all: a multimillion-dollar career directing Hollywood blockbusters like Bruce Allmighty and the Nutty Professor, a 17,000-square-foot mansion, fancy cars, the luxury of flying in private jets, invitations to extravagant parties and more. It was a life many people dream about.
Despite these many luxuries, Tom says something just didn’t feel right.
“I was standing in the house that my culture had taught me was a measure of the good life,” Tom recalls in his documentary I Am. “I was struck with one very clear, very strange feeling: I was no happier.”
