He then makes the most dreaded decision of all: he will stay with her and not return to Summerland. For your guts, for your sweetness.
Albert initially refuses, warning Chris that he might find himself stuck in the lower realm, thus delaying his eventual, inevitable reunion with Ann.
I apologise for all the times I was selfish and failed to see your needs. Thank you for your honesty, your values, your morality and compassion. This is only one of many uncomfortable aspects of the film. The psychic is unknowingly feeding this figure some answers he expects to hear, unaware that he's not conversing with the real Chris.
But to really dream of one day creating a heaven of our own individualistic dreams is to clearly misunderstand the community of love for which we are all created.
Summerland, an environment shaped by the thoughts of the inhabitants, appears relatively Earth-like because that's what the newly dead are accustomed to. Do you remember the sheep that used to graze on those hills?
Part of what contributes to the transcendental, spiritual quality of the film is the use of color and scenery. Chris learns that he and Ann have had several past lives, and in all of them they had a special connection with each other.
Thank you, Ann, for gracing my life with your lovely presence, for adding the sweet measure of your soul to my existence. I agree there is a great deal of speculation to be had in reference to the Christian religion but as with you, I found it taking away from the emotional effects of the movie to try to make those associations at the time.
