This After Earth trailer offers a spiritual perspective on a powerful movie for transcending fearful thinking by facing one’s fears directly. It also deals with themes of undoing the authority problem, and stepping into one’s true strength!
In the movie, Kitai is a young cadet who fails to be promoted to Ranger, unlike his father, who is a revered and fearless leader. When they crash on a dangerous planet, Kitai must overcome his deepest fears in order to get help for his injured father. His father instructs him, “You must do exactly as I say, or you will die.” This is symbolic of the importance of closely following the Holy Spirit’s guidance, which is the release from fear and guilt.
Fear is a choice. It is our destiny to wake up from the dream, to become fearless and to draw our strength from our true Source: the Spirit in our mind. Enjoy this inspiring After Earth trailer with commentary by spiritual teacher David Hoffmeister.
