      Dear Patti,
       
      I'd love to take the credit for such a great article on the movie but, alas, I'm only forwarding the information.  I hope you get to see it. I once lived in Decatur, Alabama.....know exactly what you're saying.  Take heart, there are more spiritual people there than you might suspect.  There is a Unity Church there; Bert and Christina Carson are the ministers, or the minister and his wife.  They send out the Daily Inspiration; you might like to see one....I'll forward the one I get tomorrow to this list.

        Hi Sandy:
         
        I am very familiar with Bert and Christina because I go to a Wednesday night class discussion with them and also receive their daily inspiration.  I attended the Unity Church before they were ministers but got a little disenchanted with the messages there because I needed more variety in my services.  Then, I was in the process of getting my Masters' Degree and then my Doctorate from a metaphysical college in California.  Because I did my Master's thesis on healing myself from the inside out and my Doctoral thesis on Angels and their place in he world during Biblical times and today, I needed a lot of information and resources that I was unable to get at the Unity church then.  I continually asked the minister on to conduct some classes or some discussions on information that would be of interest to church members besides "A Course in Miracles", but she did not feel that classes were something the church members at that time would be interested in attending.  While she did have sessions on a Western Guru named Ganghi-Gi for a while, as far as just classes or book discussions, she just did not feel the congregation would participate.
         
        So I started attending another metaphysical/theosophical church here called "The Light of Christ Center" which provided me with great information and a tremendous amount of resources, along with a chance to take a number of very interesting and informative metaphysical and healing classes..
         
        When the other minister retired and brought Bert and Christina in as Unity ministers and to later become full-term ministers, the first thing that they did was start a Wednesday night book discussion which I started attending shortly thereafter.  For some reason, the congregation attending at that time seemed to be starved for information as the class has been full and sometimes over-full every since these classes started 2 and 1/2 years ago.  We have discussed, thoroughly, and finished either four or five books, and we go through them as slowly or as quickly as the class members desire.  As part of each class Bert and Christina share their life issues and occurrences with the class participants, and the only thing I know for sure about those two people is that they are the greatest example of the statement "Their life is their message" of any person I have ever chanced to meet in my life.  They are loved and respected by all class participants, all church members and all members of the Huntsville community.
         
        So I am once again in a sort of dilemma about church.  I find that I seem to have gotten all I need out of the other church I attend and have been wanting to switch back to Unity for a while now; however, I have been on the board of the second church for almost three years--a time that will end in December, but I am almost positive that I will again be going to Unity each Sunday, once this term ends at the end of December.
         
        But I want to thank you for telling about them because every time someone mentions them from meeting them some where along their own path, it just makes me even more convinced that their path is the right one for me.
         
        By the way, where and how do you know Bert and Christina?
         
        Much love and peace,
         
        Patti Garrett

            HI Sandy:

            I don't think this movie is in my hometown yet or if it is, I missed its opening in the paper this week. But before your message, I was planning on seeing it anyway because I liked the story and I like George Clooney, no matter what movie he is in. However, from the description in my local paper, it sounded like a movie I would enjoy tremendously. However, if it does not do well at the box office, it will not stay in my hometown theater to me very long at all, because theaters here are not big on keeping movies that are not profitable.

            For the information on the movie given in my local paper, I had already decided that it was going to be a spiritual movie, but I was really impressed with the information your provided to all of us in this e-mail. Since I live in the middle of the Bible Belt in a place where moist people are very religious as opposed to being spiritual, where spiritual-minded people are in the very lowest minority, I am not even sure if this movie will last one week here. However, all the things you said made me even more anxious than ever to see it. I love movies that touch your heart and make you think about what the movie was about long after you leave it, and this movie seems to be something that will do both of those things--in spades.

            Thanks so very much for sharing your thoughts and feelings with us,and I look forward with great anticipation until I, too, can see this wonderful movie.

            Peace, love and light,

            Patti

            Hi, everyone...

            I saw SOLARIS yesterday....and it's a fascinating, eerie experience.

            Those of you who saw the original 1972 Russian version know what an engrossing (if long and slow) journey that film was. Here, director Steven Sodebergh strips the story down to its essentials and the result was, for me, a spiritual journey into the meaning of love and life.

            It's somewhat impossible to describe the plot of SOLARIS and that's really the point of the story itself. The characters can't figure out what's happening to them either. All they know is that they are orbiting a fascinating and mysterious planet/world/presence? called SOLARIS and they encounter the people they have loved most dearly...the challenge is that the people with whom they reconnect died years before...."and death shall have no dominion" takes on a new and compelling meaning.

            They are challenged just to FEEL...to go with their hearts, not their heads--and that's why I find the film so powerful and noteworthy. Over and over again recently, we are being confonted with situations along our spiritual paths that seem to be conflicting to our so-called logical minds. Inevitably, I believe that we are challenging ourselves to do what Obi-Wan Kenobee urges Luke Skywalker to do at the end of STAR WARS: "reach out with your feelings." That's why I chose "The Force is With You" as the main title of my book. When we accept that Force, we trust and have faith....in our own hearts.

            SOLARIS creates and sustains an unsettling and hypnotic mood that stays with you. The film is not for everyone (see my note below) but, if it draws you to it--like SOLARIS itself draws people to it in the film--then maybe your own heart is compelling you to experience its own longing for expression.

            A note here about the marketing of SOLARIS.

            Those of you who have joined me in any of our events have heard me speak about Hollywood not understanding or trusting spiritual material and SOLARIS is a classic example. They tried selling it as science fiction...and as a George Clooney film..and then as a love story...and, in so doing, they have drawn in just the wrong audience. Truly, it is Spiritual Cinema. I know the manager of my local theater here and she told me that scores of people are asking for their money back because the film "isn't what they thought it was" (and a whole lot of people left the theater I attended yesterday).

            To this, I quote that great philosopher Charlie Brown:
            "Aaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!"

            Of course, they're disappointed. They were lured by a marketing campaign that didn't understand or trust the audience for Spiritual Cinema so the marketers just figured, "Let's get as many people in as we can before they figure out what the movie is really about." They focus on the star, George Clooney, thinking he'll bring people in, ignoring the fact that his fans might or might not not enjoy this subject matter....but they don't address the people who would really find the story itself interesting. US!!

            But, in a way, it's all great news. We are in the "swing between worlds" now. As my dear friend Neale Donald Walsch says: "when you declare yourself, everything unlike it comes into your space." I believe that experiencing and affecting all this is why we chose to be alive at this time.

            We are watching the old paradigm die and are experiencing the birth pangs of the new paradigm. Sometimes, it's not a pretty sight in the moment. But the dawn has broken...and we are waking to the light.

            With affection.

            Stephen Simon

                  Hi:

                  Just a quick question for you--what in the world is a Muggle?

                  Just had to ask.

                  Peace, love and light,

                  Patti

                  I agree with all you have said. I only have one thing to add...ALL Muggles will dislike this movie. This movie was generated for spiritual people as far as I am concerned. A muggle was next to me in the theater, when the movie ended she says to me; " Was that a movie? I payed money for that? It was a horrible movie!." I didn't even try to make an explanation...sigh...I also strongly recommend that all who are able to read this, to go and see this movie, but remember, don't just use your physical eyes. Use your Souls "eyes"

                  HI Sandy:

                  I don't think this movie is in my hometown yet or if it is, I missed its opening in the paper this week. But before your message, I was planning on seeing it anyway because I liked the story and I like George Clooney, no matter what movie he is in. However, from the description in my local paper, it sounded like a movie I would enjoy tremendously. However, if it does not do well at the box office, it will not stay in my hometown theater to me very long at all, because theaters here are not big on keeping movies that are not profitable.

                  For the information on the movie given in my local paper, I had already decided that it was going to be a spiritual movie, but I was really impressed with the information your provided to all of us in this e-mail. Since I live in the middle of the Bible Belt in a place where moist people are very religious as opposed to being spirit....

                  Hi, everyone...

                  I saw SOLARIS yesterday....and it's a fascinating, eerie experience.

                  Those of you who saw the original 1972 Russian version know what an engrossing (if long and slow) journey that film was. Here, director Steven Sodebergh strips the story down to its essentials and the result was, for me, a spiritual journey into the meaning of love and life.

                  It's somewhat impossible to describe the plot of SOLARIS and that's really the point of the story itself. The characters can't figure out what's happening to them either. All they know is th........................
