Jeff and Marty are finding themselves tied down with wives, mortgages, prescription meds, ungrateful children and uninspiring jobs. Seeing how locked into the reciprocal ways of the world they are, they start to recall a time and place in the 1970s when they were happy and free. If they are going to make a leap for freedom, they have to do it now!
Ultimately, everyone must come to the realization that there is nothing in form—no person, place or thing—that will make us feel complete and whole. Seeking completion in this world is a fruitless search. The mind that believes that completion can be found here is trying to bring truth into illusions. What form can be a substitute for God the Father’s Love?
Jeff and Marty’s search for freedom leads them through a series of adventurous and mind-opening experiences. Once they have a taste of “Heaven on earth,” the thought of returning to their old lives feels intolerable.
This world is founded on compromise and reciprocity. The memory of God is like a forgotten song, and when it is touched upon it makes you weep, because the memory is so deep and unlike anything of this world.
The next steps for Jeff and Marty on the road to enlightenment look very different, but no matter how devastating or euphoric various phases may be, all aspects are highly-individualized and under Holy Spirit’s care and guidance. What shares in all of creation cannot be content with small ideas and little things. It is through contrast experiences and the remembrance of the thoughts that God holds of us that we come to the recognition of our divinity as holy Sons of God.
