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.
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.
What you believe, you make true for you. A belief therefore is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Without some practical steps, these beliefs might be very hard to see and you may feel trapped. But, there is a simplicity A Course in Miracles teaches. David Hoffmeister points yet again to the Spirit’s use of everything the deceived mind has made.
A Course in Miracles teaches: “You have but two emotions, love and fear.” T-13.V.1 Ultimately the only thing we are afraid of, is Love. The ego would have you believe that there are other, specific things in the world to fear, because it wants to protect itself from being exposed to the light of truth: the things it wants you to fear are actually just distractions to keep you from the awareness of your desire for God. Under the Spirit’s Guidance, miracles occur absolutely involuntarily; every person, every place, and every situation will be used for the healing of your mind.
Forgiveness has the power to truly give you everything you want. The world presents all kinds of problems, such as murder, sickness, and death, but it is actually the filter through which you perceive the world that needs purification, not the world itself. When you acknowledge that you are feeling angry, sad, or anxious, it is a move in the healing direction. Allowing buried beliefs and emotions like anger to arise is the first step towards authentic healing. “I can escape the world by giving up attack thoughts.” W-23
David Hoffmeister shares about exactly what it takes to authentically bring the darkness to the light. With purpose out front and actively asking for healing opportunities, you can heal and you can have that healing be quick! Take control of your state of mind, asking Holy Spirit to use the symbols you have in awareness.
