Seeing My Life as a Movie

by Rev. Christine Anderson, Ordained Ministerial Counselor

This article came from inspirations I received from the meditation, “Healing by Seeing Your ‘life’ as a Movie,” from ACIM Practitioner Course 922.

From the 922 Workbook I read: “I am willing to have the truth reinforced and not illusions. I remember that everything I see with the body’s eyes is unreal. It is a made-up script that is being played in my mind, like a movie on a screen. Remembering this will help lift the hypnosis of the ego and free me to become aware of my true identity again.” 

I like movies, like “Groundhog Day,” depicting the ego’s story of separation, showing up as manipulation and control, and trying to replace God’s Love through the ego, playing out day after day until the main characters open to Love and the new day dawns!

When I’m at the movies, I really enjoy when the actors play their parts so well that I forget that it is a movie. For awhile, I don’t give “my own personal movie” even a thought.

There’s been times I’ve asked Holy Spirit to help me be aware of my healing opportunities when I watch a movie. So then I am on the look out for when I am judging the behavior of a character.

Maybe I experience my emotions being triggered by a scene in the movie that is like a carbon copy to an event in my past experience. Then I have a healing opportunity.

What I do not do is go up to the movie screen and try to change anything, because I realize its just a movie. All of the characters are actors, working from a script.

I see this as an analogy to my everyday life. In this dream life where I am waking up, I want to take responsibility, see innocence and call back my projections when I realize I am being triggered to look at something from the past, and see all triggers as opportunities for forgiveness.

Nothing has happened!! Only Love is Real!! 

The ego thought system is full of trickery. It shows up over here and then over there in different disguises — physical sickness, a thought of not having enough, or anger over some perceived hurt.

They are all based on the idea that I could be separate from God’s Love. These are some of the changes that will disappear as I open to the Presence of Changeless Love.

The illusionary system was designed to keep the game of separation going and being made by the confused Son of God with lots of underpinnings. It seems fool proof. Looking at this with the helpfulness of Holy Spirit, I see it as a “house of cards” no longer being able to stand in the Presence of remembered Love.

My movie has had its ups and downs, hairpin turns and dizzying spins. The worst thing that seemed to have happened on my “dream screen” is my daughter, Darlene, making her transition in February of 2018.

I can’t believe she’s gone, but of course she’s not. The ego wants her to “magically” come through the door so we can go on to do the things we said we would.

I am very grateful that I am learning through our Course 922 group about the script that is already written before we come to this “school” called the world.

It let’s me off of the “hook” from taking the ego’s bait of guilt that I could have, should have, would have, done anything to change her script.

I get it that I can ask Holy Spirit to help me see the script differently, through the eyes of Love! My Spiritual Sister reminds me from her vantage point that we are ONE and that we are being together eternally.

This message brings no comfort to the ego, but of course, the message is for me — the sleepy Spiritual Being that I seem to be.

I am waking up!! As my Faith and Trust strengthens in the Reality of my Real Life in God, I am certain I will become aware of the ever expansive activity going on in the Oneness that includes the whole Sonship.
