The Symbolism of "The Journey Home"

First off, I want to say thank you to everyone for all of the wonderful praise I’ve received for The Journey Home. This was just something I put together pretty quickly to boost morale for the PAT, and I’m glad it resonated with everyone.

I received a comment stating that the ending was too cryptic, so I wanted to address the meaning of the film from my perspective for anyone who may be having trouble reading between the lines to grasp the film’s symbolic message.

This film was made as a tribute for a select group of people, the PAT and other lightworkers, and it’s context is the process of ascension, so it is not meant to be interpreted at face value, but simply as a proxy for my own spiritual message. This message is expressed directly in my narrated words in the first part of the film, and then represented symbolically in the two subsequent movie clips.

The film starts with a clip of planet Earth literally ascending into the frame, showing the audience what the film is about at the very start. This can also be interpreted as the PAT soaring above the earth from the stars, and I even narrate the words, “You will remember who you are, an infinite sovereign being of light, and you will know that your sacrifice was not in vain, as you look upon the earth from the stars, and watch the fruits of your labor flourish.”

In the next part of the film, we’re taken on a journey through space, as we’re shown many different beautiful clips of stars. This represents the cosmic journey back home to Source, and the different stars we’re seeded from.

Next we’re shown the clip from What Dreams May Come, and we see Robin Williams’ character say goodbye to his wife then disappear from the physical realm. This represents the PAT members leaving Earth and making the transition to fifth density which is portrayed in the movie as a dream world.

Lastly, we’re shown the clip from Gladiator. Russell Crowe’s character Maximus represents the personification of the archetypal lightwarrior, and his death symbolizes the sacrifice of the PAT to help ascend the planet by surrendering themselves to the death of 3D existence and the trials of the light body process. We then see Djimon Hounsou’s character Juba say, “I will see you again, but not yet,” and this is a reference to the prophecy of the End Times cycle foretelling the return of the ascended masters to Earth to usher in the new Golden Age, as well as the concept of souls reincarnating over time to play out the same roles. The clip ends with us ascending from the colosseum to the sky, which brings us full circle from the beginning of the film where we were soaring above the earth.

So as you can see, everything that was shown in the film was intentional. Perhaps it is a bit cryptic, but if you read between the lines it’s not too difficult to decode. I hope this explanation clarifies any confusion about the meaning of the film.

  1. It does, Skylar. I also rather enjoy the ending of “What Dreams May Come,” even though it is about reincarnation rather than ascension. You might also want to read “The Path” by Richard Matheson, author of “What Dreams May Come”. I believe you will find a quote to add to your ending that will clarify it even more for those unable to grasp the ending of the film in its present form.

    • Robert, thank you for your recommendation. I will certainly check out “The Path” when I get a chance, as I’m also a fan of the movie. I do not intend on revising the film, but I will certainly take your advice into consideration for my next projects in the future.

    • What dreams may come is not about re-incarnation but about the soul’s journey to return to back to paradise. The levels in which the soul has to reconcile with it’s earthly plain’s journey. The soul has to be reconciled before it can ascend to it’s divine state!
