The weekend movie retreat was amazing. It began spontaneously on Thursday night with a showing of Iron Man 3. This film is all about shedding the familiar skin and letting it all go. It’s time to get back to the original inspiration, and all things are not what they seem in our villain. The big bad guy in the movie is a decoy or a deception in our mind.
This launched us into the retreat with Rochelle and Peter who came all the way from Australia to join in the awakening movie retreat. Just hours before the retreat it was guided that we enter into a two hour silent period, which felt so good to have the time to go inward before our scheduled opening movie Ruby Sparks. This film is about the characters that are created by the ego and how we don’t really have control over other people even though it may seem like it. All things are working towards the Healing. We stayed up late, diving into and exposing thoughts and feelings that were flushed up from this movie’s reflection of our desire to control the people around us.

Into the Mystic Retreat
I’m continually amazed at how much I love silence. It feels like the warm sun on the my skin. For the retreat we were in silence for 36 hours. The weekend started out with a reading from the Course, and JP let Spirit flow through him on the keyboard. Jason spoke about how going ‘into the mystic’ is actually becoming aware of our worthiness, and that the two are the same. Feeling our true worthiness IS going ‘into the mystic’. He shared how thoughts about making sure someone is alright or included are actually not helpful because there is no one outside of ourselves to help. The thought that there is someone ‘out there’ who needs to be considered can actually keep us from knowing our worthiness.
