Prisoner of Your Mind?
“In the back of your mind the ego is whispering, ‘You are not going anywhere, you are in my prison. I made this prison for you and I’m a genius. That is why I designed it that you would not even know that you are in prison.’ The first step in authentic spiritual awakening would be to open your mind enough to just start to pay attention to this idea that you are in prison.” The work documentary review.

MWGE Movie Review Excerpt
This powerful documentary set in Folsom Prison is a vivid reminder that all things are possible in God. It matters not the setting or the issues facing anyone, the Spirit will rush in at even slightest invitation to help fill the void in one’s heart from past hurts and grievances.
Time and again, the inmates healed in the circles go the extra mile for their brothers—fellow inmates and even outsiders—and demonstrate their willingness to do whatever it may take to help free them from the prisons of their own mind. Jesus tells us in A Course in Miracles that God’s teachers have “made a deliberate choice in which he did not see his interests as apart from someone else’s.” You are no longer a prisoner in your own mind.
MWGE Excerpt: Never lose sight of your innocence. Never give up the hope of freedom. Be determined and persistent in your goal to awaken. Keep the fire of faith alive in your heart, for you shall reach enlightenment. You must be who you are. Don’t let an illusion of a journey depress you. Life is a present joy, and in laughter and happiness you ascend!
Red: “These walls are funny. First you hate ’em, then you get used to ’em. Enough time passes, you get so you depend on them. That’s institutionalized.”
MWGE Excerpt: To believe you are a success in this world is two steps removed from reality. To admit that your life is unmanageable and help from a higher source is needed is to come one step closer to truth.
The pilot Whip Whitaker says: “This is going to sound real stupid, coming from a man who’s locked up in prison, but for the first time in my life, l’m free.”
