Are these movies an example of--or a type of playbook for--spiritual growth?

  • The first movie forces J (Will Smith) to shed the reality of People; to let go of the world he knew.
  • The second movie forces J to shed the physical wants of Love; to let Love go--with it's smiles & frowns.
  • And the third film, forces J to understand the truth; to not demonize others; for others have always and will always be there for you; regardless of your understanding of the current world.

If these were spirit enhancing films, is the goal of each (and all other like movies) to ultimately reach a state of 'Griffin' (where in the third film, he chooses what world he lives in; and due to believing in it with his entire body, he goes there, and brings those who are under his arms).

I would feel that you are right. I haven't thought about it before, but what you said does make sense.

Definition of spiritual growth:

There is no official and exact definition of spiritual growth. We - and many others - use personal spiritual growth as synonyms for other terms like e.g. personal spiritual development, to develop higher awareness or to develop higher consciousness.

As stated above, it depends on someone's view of the true meaning of spiritual growth. My opinion on the matter is that since J made this decision and advanced as a person not only physically, but mentally, he changed his life from then on. Like I said, it just depends on the person.
