The first spiritual quality to live in good terms with reality is ACCEPTANCE. We know that films are not ever as good as the books they represent, but Sebastian Siegel has done a fine job in writing and directing a meaningful and profound journey in the pitfalls of cancer and the heights of love between two very special people that even though they're committed to a personal and transpersonal evolutionary consciousness growth, they're also like everyone else, showing their downsides (what it also humanizes the movie) and in the whole the acceptance of reality as it comes. Ken doesn't end up being an alcoholic and Treya doesn't end up in despair, therefore I find a great lesson to learn, profusely recommended by Ken himself: trascend and include, to keep on flowing with life !!!
