No amount of planning can guarantee safety or a happy outcome in form. True happiness comes from forgiveness and opening to a present moment love. Private thoughts and beliefs can be released in the presence of the non-judgment of a true mighty companion. Love is letting go of fear and forgiving the need to protect a limited self-concept. Over and over again we see that when the moment comes to expose private thoughts, the threat was never what it seemed. Everything works together for good in the Spirit’s plan. The present moment is all there is: “Let my love open the door.”
This movie is also about laying aside the fear of accepting a relationship assignment and committing to the healing opportunity that comes with such an assignment. This was perfectly illustrated when Reuben said to Polly, "So you're going with the no plan, plan," about her not daring to accept the gift of joining in relationship. Avoiding making plans is also a decision although it seems like no decision. Another, and maybe the greatest, highlight was when Reuben was indecisive about what he really wanted, which was shown in Polly almost leaving town. But as soon as he heard the Holy Spirit speak through his own dad, he realized that he did not want to let what he really wanted just disappear out if his life. In this, we see clearly how the world is always just a reflection of our thoughts and wishes.
It is all about willingness and worthiness to accept the means that will perfectly and joyfully undo old beliefs!

Movies are an excellent way to watch your mind, to pay attention to your emotions, and to help you discover your unconscious beliefs.
