#2: Groundhog Day
Is this movie the answer to your prayers if you’ve ever prayed that spiritual enlightenment could be funny? As time moves forward, the past appears to repeat itself. It’s futile to try and obtain something back from others in order to fill the gaping hole within of us. And it seems as if there is no way out of this abyss.
That’s what makes Groundhog Day such a potent metaphor for the human condition. Even if you don’t know how to get out of it, you can see a metaphor for how to get out of the loop, which is just to be entirely helpful—to totally give oneself over to helping others.

When Chris understands what he’s done, he goes through a thorough forgiveness process to bring back the consciousness of Love to his mind.
Solaris is a symbol of abstract love, light, and oneness. In Oneness, there is no sense of self-identity. Because there are no “people” in heaven, the ego is annihilated. Chris feels like he’s about to be obliterated as the spaceship nears Solaris. He collapses to the floor in the midst of a tense scene. Even if the ego is afraid of surrendering to the Light in the mind, as we continue to yield into the Light, a sense of True Love replaces fear.
