Elliot, a seeming geek, believes that things would be different if only Allison loved him. He calls out, “Oh God, help me please,” and a sexy devil appears. Elliot is presented with an opportunity to rearrange time, space and his self-concept in order to have a life with his unrequited love. No matter how extreme the hypothetical changes in form, the experience is the same in every scenario because of Elliot’s belief in unworthiness.
 
With only one wish left, and having sold his soul to the devil for a special relationship, Elliot literally finds himself imprisoned in an impossible situation. The stepping stone self-concepts have helped to loosen Elliot’s belief in who he is. Disillusioned, he is now ready to hear the Spirit through his jail cellmate, “You cannot really sell your soul, because it is not yours to sell.”
 
Our innocence (worthiness) is given; there is nothing we can do to mess it up. It is our willingness to choose peace instead of form of any kind that releases the miracle, returning us to the awareness of who we are now. A relationship can be given to Elliot once all desire has been handed over to the Spirit. Now, instead of being used to maintain the illusion of a false identity, it can be safely used as an assignment for healing.
