Marvel Comics narrative of Dr Strange transferred to the silver screen hints at so much of the astral worlds, the higher dimensions and the grasping mind locked in sensate reality: the mind, the body, the senses, the grasping ego that wants more, more, more. This movie presents something of a spiritual boot camp which bears further reflection, despite the myriad journeys into absorbing, overpowering worlds of astral projection and sorcery.
The Master tells that there is no spiritual progress, no spiritual development without humility. Humility before the Master takes many forms and feelings – as we have shared before, this world is light. As God is Light, as The Master is self-effulgent Light – humility takes shape and form before our family, friends, co-workers, neighbours, strangers, so-called experts, so-called spiritual leaders and Masters, many of whom are fakes and seek to belittle us in front of others in order to protect themselves. saranagatha is the Sanskrit word; when all is surrendered up to God, there is no self left to be apart from God.
