Trust, Follow, Be Taken Care Of – Join David Hoffmeister as he looks at the importance of trust and following guidance as a means to the end. Other themes include fear of hurting other people’s feelings, control, releasing family people-pleasing, and releasing false responsibilities to give way for our true responsibility—our state of mind. Near the end of the session, everyone listened to the song “You raise me up,” and tears of concern and release were felt. Laughter erupted and the Spirit poured through with deep healing and bursting, cascading laughter.
Surrendering to the One Plan Now – This joyful session with David Hoffmeister contains the following topics: how do I continue expressing when I return to my regular life? How do I surrender my opinions about how grandchildren are raised? How can I continue to live in the miracle and go beyond perceiving specialness?
In My Defenselessness My Safety Lies – In this Q&A session, David Hoffmeister addresses questions such as “How can we go through the experience of the death of a loved one with more peace and less pain?” “How do I dominate the ego?” and “How can I break out of ego confusion?” The gathering also includes a discussion on releasing the ego’s sense of protecting and protectionism. Protecting is a block to clarity and peace of mind.
The World Is a Dream – David shares an opening night gathering in Monterrey, Mexico. Topics include releasing attachments to time and roles and forgiving the belief in death and loss.
Love Is Reached through Forgiveness – In a life fully devoted to God, the miracle is always present. David and friends share on having no “life” of their own and experiencing that everything is given by the Spirit moment by moment. Examples are offered about living a life without compromise.
Offer Your Career to the Holy Spirit – In this talk, David Hoffmeister looks at career, money, and reciprocity. Money is neutral to the Holy Spirit, but to the ego, it is full of meaning. Because the ego is the belief in lack, and money is a symbol that it made up to solve the lack. In A Course in Miracles, Jesus is getting us to question where we believe our safety is and where we believe our sustenance comes from. Are you willing to trust Jesus when he says, “If you will give love away, if you will extend love, everything will be taken care of for you.” Many examples and parables are given.
Seeing No Error – Nothing in time and space is really free, because the ego made it. This is the ego’s world. This linear, fragmented world of division and separation is hell. There must be a deep clearing and emptying of the mind, a deep purification of all ego goals, values, concepts, and allowance of the darkness to come up to reach a state of mind that is joined with the Holy Spirit. This mind knows only innocence, sees only innocence, and sees no error. Any darkness in the mind does need to be released. Once this purification has occurred, all the love and gratitude in our hearts will naturally begin to pour out.
Holy Spirit Is the Comforter – Gain a new perspective of our fear of love and the role of the Comforter. Join David as he takes us deeper into how our fear of love and intimacy is really the fear of the power of our mind, that somehow we actually had the power to miscreate and turn away from God’s Love. But God answered this strange belief instantaneously with the Comforter, the Holy Spirit.
The Real Alternative – The mind tries to find all sorts of distractions, such as television and entertainment, to avoid looking at the desperation, deep sense of loss, disillusionment, meaninglessness, and fear. Come join David as he takes you through the “dark night of the soul” into the real alternative. When you see that trials and tribulations have no value, you’ll let go of the investment in illusions. Listen to that small, still voice within, and follow it as it takes you beyond the darkness into heights of happiness.
What Is Forgiveness According to ACIM? – David transmits the presence of forgiveness and clarifies that it offers everything now. Process collapses in experience, and the Holy Spirit/Jesus is the “how.” The focus is solely on forgiveness, and not attempting to use past learning to solve projected problems of the body and world. Enlightenment is a state of mind, and persons or masks are never enlightened. The mask only seemed to cover over the light of Heaven and the Christ.
Guidance—a Key Component of A Course in Miracles – Guidance is an essential aspect of A Course in Miracles. In fact, the purpose and practice of the book is to help us connect with our Internal Teacher, the Holy Spirit. The Course offers a methodology for experiencing the helpfulness of guidance in daily living, which will lead us gently onto awakening from this dream.
