This movie is a composite that exposes the futility of attempting “relationship” without divine purpose. Relationships without a divine aim always break up, for they are based on nothing. Divine purpose could be described as forgiveness—the undoing and releasing of the ego. The belief in the ego prevents awareness of true union and intimacy. The underlying fear of intimacy and union is the ego’s fear of loss of itself, the personal self and the personal world. There are pseudo ego experiences of attraction and repulsion, bonding and hatred, but underneath there is always a wish to separate and go separate ways or to maintain the private, independent sense of self. This is the futility and confusion of all worldly relationships and attempts at the union of bodies. True love is of the Spirit (beyond the body) and lasts forever.
