Jack Campbell is a wealthy, autonomous, fast-lane investment broker who believes he is living the high life. He has no idea what he is in for when the Spirit intervenes and gives him a glimpse of an alternative, relationship-focused life that requires him to develop patience, tolerance, and acceptance of what is. This film is perfect for showing the helpfulness of family for opening up to love and commitment, and putting something other than self-centered goals first. “I choose us” is the acceptance of the relationship given now; it is choosing the present and trusting that everything else will be taken care of, including the future.
The ego’s use of family relationships is to maintain specialness and separation, and to make an idol out of the relationships. The Spirit can use what the ego made to point towards the truth, and for deepening in communication, integrity, and intimacy. Relationships can be used to allow specialness and fear of loss to arise for the purpose of healing. As the mind opens up to the idea of sharing and extending with the whole Sonship, rather than just with a few relationships, the transfer value of what was learned in the family context is immeasurable. As communication deepens, limited family concepts fall away and the experience of love and connection can be experienced with all. The ego always resists change, because its salvation rests upon maintaining the status quo in form. Therefore, allowing and accepting the Spirit’s Guided changes in form is the pain-free way to awaken. The undoing need not be painful, but it usually is so experienced.
