Conversations: Redemption and Lessons of Love is the second in a series of conversations with Raymond Moody, MD. This one takes place with Melvin Morse, MD. It discusses his experiences while serving a short prison term that grew out of a deeply negative family situation.
It is the story of a famous best-selling author who appeared many times on national television, was featured on distinguished panels, and then experienced a fall. And then found redemption.
In this conversation Dr. Morse details how fellow prisoners became his teachers. How they taught him about spiritual acceptance and the true meaning of love. His teachers were far less fortunate, poorly educated, and generally came from broken families and crime ridden inner cities. He learned how life’s deepest truths do not come from the intellectual mind, but from a deep spiritual center within.
The film includes stories of other inmates. That what got him through prison were the practical teachings he learned from the most unexpected sources: These led to a growth in love and faith, and a new understanding that one’s spiritual dimension expanded by passing it on from one person to another. An important part of the film consists of stories of how many arrived there—mostly, as a result of economic desperation, or mental illness or, as Joe Hurley, a famed defense attorney observed, “a 49 second bad decision.” And then how they found redemption
Raymond Moody, a psychiatrist, as well as a PhD philosopher, leads this discussion directing the talks that lead to insights into human character, and he does it with empathy of the misfortunes that can come suddenly on us out of the blue. Then the dialogues lead to the meaning of ultimate redemption.
Redemption and Lessons of Love is the story of how learning love and forgiveness come to us all by ways beyond the intellect or mind, but through the acceptance of a spiritual dimension, which is the birthright of every human being.
