Movie Pick of the Week
Jesus doesn’t mince words! For those who have the ears to hear! We will be forever split and confused until we make the One decision that undoes all other seeming decisions!
I am in need of nothing but the truth.
I sought for many things, and found despair. Now do I seek but one, for in that one is all I need, and only what I need. All that I sought before I needed not, and did not even want. My only need I did not recognize. But now I see that I need only truth. In that all needs are satisfied, all cravings end, all hopes are finally fulfilled and dreams are gone. Now have I everything that I could need. Now have I everything that I could want. And now at last I find myself at peace. ~ACIM, W-251

When the mind is identified with the ego and is lost in the ego’s purpose for the body, it becomes obsessed with seeking pleasure (pain). This movie shows so clearly that pleasure and pain are the same, and that seeking for and playing out the ego’s purpose for the body is an attack upon the self. All illness is mental illness, and sickness (addiction) is function unfulfilled. Hiding and protecting addictions (the ego), blocks all chance of help and healing.
When the decision is made to stop hiding (from oneself) and playing games, real healing can begin, and relationships built on a shared purpose of healing, openness, and honesty are possible. Facing the past is essential in order to truly heal. No dark cornerstones can be left unturned or they become hiding places for the ego.
Getting in touch with one’s higher power is the answer. Being of service lifts the mind into a higher purpose and into alignment with being helpful. In this alignment, the mind is lifted from the battleground. In this movie, the characters are very aware of the two thought systems, and what happens to them when they are lost in the ego’s world of pleasure and pain. It is hell, and it takes great vigilance and determination to stay right-minded. Thank God for mighty companions, and for opportunities to be of service. There is so much love and support available when healing is desired above all else.
