Bad to the Bone

Kid - A Best Spiritual Awakening Signs Movie
"In this movie, the main character helps people who feel bad about themselves to build a better image. But it doesn’t help one bit to change the self-image. You can make it better and better and better, but it’s still bad to the bone because God didn’t create it.

     MWGE Movie Review Excerpt
The Kid Movie Review - Movie Watcher's Guide to Enlightenment
NewsWhat you most despise about yourself must come to the surface. The perfect mirror appears, and the opportunity for healing unconscious hurts is present, though not always recognized as such. Anger, frustration, and resentment can be traced to a deep seated lack of worth. This error of identity may include a false sense of superiority or pride that was built to overcompensate for, and offset, the believed lack of worth. When love beckons there is a deep call for healing, and every scrap of guilt is exposed. This release of guilt opens a call to join. Finally, with faith, the experience of joining breaks through in awareness and the happiness and love fill the mind and satisfy the deepest longing of the soul. The gratitude of healing flows without obstruction.
     Play Before Movie
Kid Before Talk - Movie Watcher's Guide to Enlightenment NewsThis is an amazing movie of mirroring, of exposing what you need to have exposed. When a younger version of Russ shows up, all the things he hates about himself come to the surface. He discovers that feelings of lack, fear and unworthiness are churning around underneath his material success. As long as we cling to the mask then we don’t know the love that we are because we’re too busy holding onto the mask, propping it up, fixing it and trying to change it.
     Play After Movie
Kid After Talk - Movie Watcher's Guide to Enlightenment NewsRuss invites his younger self to help him get in touch with repressed memories. In the end, he is going to look at the belief that he hurt his mother. The Course says that we’ll go forward in this process, even though it feels like we’re going backwards. Russ goes all the way back to the point in his life where believed that he killed his mother. And now he can choose again. "God's answer lies where the belief in sin must be, for only there can its effects be utterly undone and without cause." T-26.VII.5.

Emotions/Themes: Innocence, Addiction, Opening up to Love, Split Mind, No Private Thoughts, Forgiveness, Pride, No People Pleasing, Dropping the Mask, Letting Go of Control
MWGE Excerpt: The self-concept is a lie. It is not who you are. You were never meant to play a role in this world. Fletcher is going through a major unwinding process. His self-concept has been built on playing roles, people-pleasing, and lying. His son Max makes a birthday wish, after which Fletcher finds that he actually cannot tell a lie. For Fletcher it is a torturous experience as he believes that his private thoughts, little white lies, and half-truths keep him safe, loved, and employed.
Will Hunting - Movie Watcher's Guide to Enlightenment News
Emotions/Themes: Dropping the Mask, Heal Past Associations, Anger, Dare to Take Step, Guidance, Fear of Commitment, Teacher/Student, Willingness, Unworthiness
MWGE Excerpt: By opening the heart and learning to trust, we learn to let go of the past and thus release all hurt, anger, and blame. We finally open to hear the gentle voice of love reminding us over and over, “It’s not your fault.” It is merely our unconscious belief, the ego, that seeks to place a limit on the beautiful, magnificent inner being that yearns to shine and shine. We see the inner beauty when we are ready.
Proposal - Movie Watcher's Guide to Enlightenment News
Emotions/Themes: Unworthiness, Compromise, People Pleasing, Opening up to Love, Perfectionism, Unworthiness, Workaholism, Letting Go of Control, Dropping the Mask

MWGE Excerpt: When you want something from the world, the world wants something from you, because it can only reflect what is valued. When there is a crack of an opening in the mind to remember the love that has been buried away, the light will come through, and will eventually soften even the hardest heart. Expectations and compromise block the ability to communicate and join. Both must be laid aside in order to experience present joining.

The Ego is Not Happy With This Process of Letting Go & Awakening

the Mask YouTube - Movie Watcher's Guide to Enlightenment News
The personal construct is a mask that needs to be left behind. The ego hears this and says, "Uh oh, that's not good." Forgiveness leads to the remembrance of abstraction. It takes trust to let go of personal pursuits and the things that you think sustain you. You are sustained by the love of God. Then you sail along in the happy dream.

50 Years of Pretense or One
Holy Instant - You Choose
mwge heading

I've always said I would rather have one instant of deep communion than fifty years of living with someone under the same roof and trying to carry on with masks.
One instant of dropping the mask in a full way—what the Course would call a holy instant—is more valuable than fifty years of pretense. And you see how opposite that is to the world. The world would say, "Well fifty years has to count for something. We stuck it out for fifty years." You don't hear yourself in rapture saying, "Oh, I stuck it out," it's more like, "Take me up, beam me up, take me in the rapture." When you're sticking something out there's a sense of compromise underneath. There's a sense of, I would say, sacrifice. There is no sacrifice in awakening. ~ David Hoffmeister
Miracle Movie Gatherings - Movie Watcher's Guide to Enlightenment

Join Us at the Online Matinee
Every Saturday at Noon CST

Every Saturday at noon CST (Central Standard Time) we show an online movie and give spiritual commentary. If you like movies and want to go deeper into the teachings of A Course in Miracles, you can join us for this weekly movie gathering from the comfort of your own home!

At MWGE, we take a mystical approach to movie-watching. We use movies solely to practice watching our emotions, noticing our thoughts, and staying attentive to the Holy Spirit's interpretation of each scene. In this way, we experience great healing in mind, get better at practicing forgiveness, and have loads of fun doing it!

Morpheus Speaks on Luxury Just in Time to Introduce Our Quantum Immersion Retreat
us for our luxury retreat in May!
Living Miracles is offering a unique opportunity in May for a limited number of dedicated A Course in Miracles students to dive deep into the vastness of the mind with David Hoffmeister and friends in Mexico. The retreat will be held at Casa Quantico, a newly-opened retreat center for Living Miracles events that's nestled in the flowering hills overlooking the beautiful and vibrant Lake Chapala area.

Retreat numbers are intentionally being kept small to ensure that participants get the personal care and attention they need to open up to a direct experience of lasting inner peace and connection. All retreat packages include:
  • One on one and small group interaction time with Living Miracles teachers
  • Opportunities to join together at some of the best restaurants in the area
  • Participation in small group gatherings and dynamic quantum movie sessions
  • An evening boat cruise complete with music and full-course buffet or a spa experience
Retreat participants can choose from luxurious private rooms with or without lake views in the Lake Chapala area or dormitory-style accommodations at Casa Quantico. Retreat attendance is limited to those who are staying at one of the properties set aside for this retreat.

Happy Movie Watching!
