Without trust and a clear purpose of healing the mind out front, the ego will run amok even in the face of seemingly life-threatening situations. Based on events from the Apollo 13 rocket mission to the moon, as a series of technical mishaps unfold over the course of the mission, the astronauts and support team on the ground (mission control) initially will face anger, blame, fear of consequences, struggles communicating, false responsibility, and fear of making mistakes. 
Even as seeming problems continue to surface, it is not until the astronauts begin to lay perceived separate interests aside, are willing to drop their projections, and truly communicate with each other, that clarity and guidance can begin to come in and direct their return home. Witnesses also eventually appear reflecting this shift in purpose toward forgiveness, and in the end, miracles abound and are felt by the whole!
