Dare to Look into Your Mind with “The Wizard of Oz” – By David Hoffmeister

David Hoffmeister invites you to quit believing in the ego's distractions. Experience a release by daring to look into your mind with "The Wizard of Oz!"

Movie Watcher’s Guide to Enlightenment – The ego always pays extreme attention to the screen, refusing to go within and look at your mind. Or if we use the analogy of The Wizard of Oz, when they finally get to Oz, to the room where they see this giant thing on the screen—a huge face with a loud voice—Toto pulls the curtain in the projection room, and the wizard says, “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!”

Pay no attention to the thought in the mind, to the true cause; stay focused on the horrifying picture that you see on the screen so you will tremble before it. This movie has many good metaphors in it. No wonder people love it, even if they don’t know why; because it’s a metaphor for their release. There’s no place like Home. You’ve always had the power to go Home.

“Let us return the dream he gave away unto the dreamer, who perceives the dream as separate from himself and done to him. Into eternity, where all is one, there crept a tiny, mad idea, at which the Son of God remembered not to laugh. In his forgetting did the thought become a serious idea, and possible of both accomplishment and real effects.” ACIM T-27.VIII.6

“In his forgetting” is where the accomplishment and real effects seem to occur.

Ultimately the only way to lay down the defenses is to look into the mind, to look right into the cause and see that the big bad wolf, the wizard of Oz, the one that seems to be controlling and powerful, is nothing but this little mouse that is of no consequence at all. You just quit believing in it. That is quite a release.

Slumdog Millionaire and A Course in Miracles

Anything perceived as happening in the world need not be judged. You cannot have a better life or a worse life in form. You have no control over the world. The script cannot be changed. The script is the past— it is written. There is great release in knowing this, giving you full permission to be happy. It is really very simple.
