Mastery Through Love — The Relinquishment of Fear
“A Course In Miracles simplifies things by saying that you have but two emotions: one is love and one is fear. Fear but seems to be about persons, places and things, but fear of God’s Love is the strange belief that must be exposed and seen as false.“

MWGE Movie Review Excerpt
The Fault in Our Stars
Shakespeare wrote, “The fault… is not in our stars, but in ourselves.” If the fault is mortality, then this movie is demonstrating that there is no fault, because love transcends death.
The purpose of our life is to open our heart to love. Because everything in this world is going to come to an end, the fear of future loss is a defense against present joining. When Hazel and Augustus meet there is clearly a spark and a relationship unfolds. Knowing that their time together is finite means facing the fear of future loss and daring to keep opening their hearts and letting themselves be loved.

Song for Marion
Emotions/Themes: Love, Opening up to love, Discover True Identity, Loneliness, Death, Collaboration, Dare to Take Step, No Competition
MWGE Excerpt: Eternal patience and loving kindness are like angels in the wings, whispering with encouragement. The Spirit answers the call for love with true empathy and true love. Joining and extension are how the Spirit supports the return to the awareness of innocence, and when the mind is ready to go for forgiveness, it is always a gift.
Sing from your heart, with all of your heart! Your part in God’s plan is essential. It is time to say yes to the love that you are.
I Can Only Imagine
Emotions/Themes: Fear, Unworthiness, Family, Healing, Forgiveness, Miracles, Love
MWGE Excerpt: This is a powerful healing movie that is based on a true story about the life of Bart Millard, who as a child lived in an intense environment with a physically and verbally abusive father. But this movie doesn’t leave it there.
It shows that everything is a reflection of mind and, when you change your state of mind, those around you reflect that change as well.
Emotions/Themes: Deception, Love, Fear, Opening up to love
MWGE Excerpt: The desire to remember love compels us to face our worst fear and go beyond it. After returning from the war, Paul meets Victoria on a bus headed home from college to her family’s vineyards. She fears the wrath of her father as she is unmarried and pregnant. Paul agrees to pose as her husband to help her face her father. Even complicated webs of deception fall away in yielding to the love in the heart. Fear is transcended as love guides us home to itself.
Overcoming Our Deepest Fear
A Course In Miracles is a non-dual pathway that leads to oneness and an awareness that Love is all there is. Our deepest fear is the belief that we can miscreate and go against our Creator and this is why we are so afraid of our thoughts. The purpose of mind training is to come to the awareness that we can never mis-create or destroy, and see we are innocent. God is spirit and God creates in spirit and the spirit is pure love and that is who we truly are.
