In this Mystery School, David Hoffmeister asks the students to share their experiences with the movie that was shown earlier that day, “The Family Stone”. The students then share their thoughts and expressions while David shares his insight. Topics include; Sickness, Relationships, Projection, Fear of Death, Family.
The Spirit’s purpose for this life is for freedom, to wake up from the dream of the world, not to attain and achieve. The ego’s use of the body, of family and education, is for reinforcing a personal separate identity. But you are Spirit and must unlearn everything the ego has taught you. Your only responsibility is accepting the correction. It is not about dropping worldly responsibilities, but having them all handed to Spirit who would address them through a path of miracles. David says the Course can be summed up in the Serenity Prayer, recognizing what you can and cannot control and the wisdom to know the difference. What you can control is your state of mind. What you cannot control is the world, and everything associated with the world. Have gratitude and appreciation for everybody, because they are helping you to forgive.
David Hoffmeister recalls parables from his journeys over the past 31 years, resulting from his following the Voice for God. This joy-filled Sunday Morning Service of David’s was recorded on June 18th, 2017 when he was the guest speaker at the Rocky Mountain Miracle Center in Denver, Colorado. It starts with David sharing many parables from his early years with A Course in Miracles, and ends with several questions.
Worcester, England: Keeping It Practical Part 1—Bringing Darkness to the LightDavid discusses many practical ideas about living in this world and how to apply them in our day to day lives. He shares a key ACIM idea of bringing illusions to truth or darkness to the light. So often we can...
David explains that past and future are ego constructs, defense mechanisms meant to maintain linear perception and illusion. The new way to perceive, which leads to awakening, is through recognizing the simultaneous nature of time. Unified time = Purpose.
David intimately shares an invitation to community living, (a devotional stay application form can be found at https://livingmiraclescenter.org/centers/devotional-stays.html), as he looks back upon 25 years of travel to gatherings, holy encounters, and establishing communities that have grown in number and size.
David shines light on our limited ideas around “life” and “death.” Our belief in when we die reflects our deep belief that we are bodies “living” in a world of space and time. As we release these false concepts we can laugh at the idea of death and know ourselves as the eternal, living Christ. Other themes include: trust, guidance, reincarnation and living in divine providence.
The more you give yourself over to the joy of the Spirit, the more you see that your Plan Bs avail you nothing. The world’s mantra that we need to plan for the future and be prepared for all situations is not our real concern. Our real fear is present joining. As we give up our little plans and align our mind with the Spirit’s plan, we experience life as a joyful, spectacular unfolding.
In A Course in Miracles Jesus stresses the importance of mind training and becoming conscious of our thoughts. This is what will help lead us out of our fearful state of wrong mindedness and into the blissful awareness of right mindedness or alignment with the Spirit. Other topics include forgiveness, and how to move through the highs and lows that may be experienced on this journey.
Enjoy this rich talk that will help you gain an understanding of where our problems really lie: in the mind and nowhere else. All of our guilt, fear, and rage is all in the mind not out in the world. Accepting this is not only a time saver but your ticket to true freedom and peace of mind. Other topics include inspiring accounts of the lives of mystics such as Ghandi, William Whitson, and Living Miracles’ minister Frances Xu.
In this interview David talks about his own journey and how much fun it has been, giving practical examples of how the Spirit has worked so playfully in his life. He shares with us how following guidance has led to building trust in the Holy Spirit as His path leads to happiness, peace of mind, and a truly joyful life.
Jesus and the Holy Spirit want us to be happy and can use anything in our lives to help lead us to this experience; any thought or feeling that is not of supreme joy can be used. David describes in this talk some of the dialogues that he had with Jesus years ago when he was unwinding from the ego thought system. The workbook lessons of A Course in Miracles are extremely practical and are a powerful tool to help you experience consistent peace of mind.
Our true reality is a Spiritual Kingdom, and in this Kingdom we are all One and nothing is missing. But when the ego made the world, the mind fell asleep and forgot this Oneness. In its place a world of separation was projected in which the idea of loss seems to make sense. Now must the Holy Spirit convince us that loss is impossible, and that as we awaken everyone gains. Open your heart to the Spirit, and you will be shown that no one can lose and everyone must gain by your decision to awaken.
A Course in Miracles is a direct pathway back to God that teaches us how to forgive. The goal of ACIM is not about making a better life in the world, but about letting the world as we perceive it fall apart. This necessarily involves letting go of control, and as we pray to be shown the world through the light of the Holy Spirit, it becomes easier and easier. Peace becomes our natural experience. We experience miracles. And we become peaceful demonstrations of the love of Christ.
In this talk, David makes the profound connection that if we are valuing anything in this world we are actually choosing hatred over love. In truth, there is no difference between the things that bring us pleasure and the things that cause us pain. There is an unconscious fear in the mind that we are in competition with God. Enjoy these deep and uncompromising messages from David that will help accelerate your awakening if you choose.
David shares about his guidance for a liquid diet in the context of spiritual Awakening. When we give over our life for Awakening, every decision is made with the Spirit. This talk places diet in the context of aligning our thinking with God and a purification of the heart.
