Mini Review: Gambler Jake Green is out of jail after seven years in solitary confinement, having taken the fall for his boss. Doing time has taken him inward; he has been shown the game and how to win it. He has one final lesson when he turns up in Vegas looking to exact revenge on his perceived enemy, the corrupt casino boss, Macha. Jake Green still believes that “cash is king” and that having money and power is winning. The Spirit must reach us wherever we believe we are.
We do not always recognize our mighty companions when they show up; Avi and Zach teach Jake that he is still in prison and that it is his mind that needs to be freed from the game. In the truly practical application of the principles he has learned, they lead him through a series of assignments designed to flush the ego (Mr. Gold) fully into awareness. Jake must give all, to have all. And in a truly magnificent elevator scene he recognizes that the voice of fear is not his real identity. Now truly released in a state of forgiveness, nothing can touch him.
Metaphysical goodie quote:
Jake Green: “There is something about yourself that you don’t know. Something that you will deny even exists, until it’s too late to do anything about it. It’s the only reason you get up in the morning. The only reason you suffer the shitty puss, the blood, the sweat and the tears. This is because you want people to know how good, attractive, generous, funny, wild and clever you really are. Fear or revere me, but please, think I’m special. We share an addiction. We’re approval junkies. We’re all in it for the slap on the back and the gold watch. The hip-hip-hoo-fuckin’ rah. Look at the clever boy with the badge, polishing his trophy. Shine on you crazy diamond, because we’re just monkeys wrapped in suits, begging for the approval of others.”
