David Hoffmeister's Movie Blog: Undoing the Belief in Victims and Victimizers through Spiritual Movies ~ “Whiplash” and the Teacher/Student Relationship

"This movie is a mind watcher for healing the belief in victims and victimizers. In truth, they are the same. Both are illusions, neither right nor wrong, good or bad. Andrew is a drummer who believes being the “best” will make him happy. Terence is perceived as an abusive teacher who is an intense reflection of Andrew’s doubt thoughts about his drumming talent, and becomes Andrew’s scapegoat for why he will not 'be the best'.
It is the perfect teaching/learning situation as Andrew lets go of the desire for recognition as the best drummer, his passion for drumming returns as a connection to Spirit and a love of collaboration. Terence also provides Andrew with opportunities for forgiveness of perceived 'wrongdoings'; coming to see the truth that Terence was there all along in support of him stepping into his magnitude. There are no victims and no victimizers in Truth."
