Emmet has to realize who he truly is. He is “the special.” Until his spiritual awakening, he is totally plugged into the matrix, blind to the fact that he doesn’t have any meaningful relationships. Although he catches glimpses of awareness that something isn’t quite right with the world, these thoughts are quickly pushed out of awareness. Legoland, the only world Emmet knew, has instructions for everything, including how to behave, think and live, in order to fit in and be a successful character.
Accepting true identity is not just about becoming a master builder or a superhero. It is about accepting worthiness and accepting the perfection of our true identity. In this acceptance, the Spirit moves through in the perfect way—with the perfect words, solutions, actions, and presence that is called for in every moment. In this awareness of Self, the mind is not bound by the laws of the world. Superheroes are “unplugged,” which is why they have tapped into what is called superpowers. And even higher still, beyond being an unplugged superhero, is collaboration for an even higher purpose.
“Everything is awesome! Everything is cool when you’re part of a team.” Collaboration is the gift that Emmet brings to share with the whole. The Spirit uses his past skills and abilities to serve in delightfully helpful ways in the plan of awakening. Until he has a mystical experience and becomes aware of the other realms within the dream world, Emmet’s perception of himself and his abilities is extremely limited. He has many witnesses reflecting his self-doubt, and it is not until he experiences the truth for himself that he can authentically know that he is “the special”—the One.
Legoland is ruled by Mr. Business, who is highly resistant to change and to the unknown. He calls free-thinking “chaos,” and he has a master plan to freeze everything and everyone in the universe. Emmet and his mighty companions have to lay aside the judgment of themselves and each other in order to join in mind and collaborate together. It takes great faith to go all the way with every given step. Sometimes it can even seem like death is being chosen, but every step towards awakening is towards a higher perspective.
The world is the screen upon which the dreamer of the dream’s thoughts, beliefs and desires are projected. Until there is harmony between the Father and the Son, conflict and the desire for control will continue to be played out in the world.
All of God’s Sons are special. There is One Son of God, and every “one” has the same ability to accept the Atonement and realize true identity.
