This hilarious comedy is a classic for opening the heart and trusting through a series of stepping stones provided by Spirit. Carl is repressed in all areas of his life. He is believing in the ego patterns of thought that have led to avoidance, deception, and isolation. The closed mind says no to just about everything that might be helpful and cannot hear Spirit. Through a series of events he is given a clear directive to say yes to every opportunity presented to him, and although at first he (the ego) is fearful and resistant, the Spirit shows him that he really does not know his own best interests. Before long he is experiencing the joy of the miracle from following these prompts. There is momentum as trust builds. As happens with all stepping stones, Carl's world opens up in wonderful ways and the prompt to say yes to everything is maximized. It is time for a deepening in discernment for what is most helpful for healing the mind. Knowing when to say yes and when to say no is everything. Discernment helps the heart open up to new possibilities and to go all the way!

Movies are an excellent way to watch your mind, to pay attention to your emotions, and to help you discover your unconscious beliefs.
