Many thank you's and much reverence from me to everyone involved on this website, instructors and students, and the V.M. Samael Aun Weor. I find myself on this website more and more and am thankful to be here, on this path, learning and working for God.
Many are the movies that are egoic. Likely 97% or perhaps even higher.
But like in any art form there are some that are laden with esoteric symbolism and inspired by God thus helping us recognize, and walk towards, the Truth within.
Do the instructors know of any movies as such, esoterically motivated and/or divinely inspired?
A friend told me that movies like Gladiator, the early Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and the Matrix all point out the hero's journey that we need to take. They all point out the system, the collective ego, and the need to transcend it. The Gladiator fights his way through the faceless warriors of the Colosseum, Luke must find the Force within to redeem his Father, Frodo overcomes the tempting darkness with help and guidance, and Neo must defeat the many forms of Mr. Smith in order to transcend the system.
Clearly, these movies can inspire us to do work but will not provide inner insight. We must do the work ourselves. Nonetheless, they are at the very least reminders of our call to the journey and to do Inner Work.
Are there movies that are esoterically driven that you know about? What is your opinion of the movies above stated, should they be avoided, or do you think them positive?
