Jesus knows the way to truth beyond the endless maze of roles, concepts, and beliefs that we have accumulated in this world. Transcending fear requires listening to and following guidance. David Hoffmeister shares how Jesus used the mechanism of travel to undo the belief in ego preferences and attachments, and thus to undo fear. Family roles and responsibilities are often a concern as we start to embark on the path back to truth. Jesus works with us gently to unwind the mind. David’s sharing on this topic is especially helpful for anyone who feels the confusion of responsibility to both family and the spiritual journey.
Undoing all attachments comes from trust—not trust in persons or things, but trust in the higher Self and intuition. You will reach a state of mind with no ambitions. There is a Presence of Love that transcends differences and comparisons and judgments. Everything blends into one experience, like a happy, delicious milkshake.
The Holy Spirit guides you through roles the ego made to unwind you from them. When you are playing a role (mother, teacher, boyfriend, etc.), you want control as a “doer.” As you follow Spirit’s guidance, you allow the grip of control to loosen, and move from doing into being. You are not here to take on a spiritual role. Instead, all roles are concepts in the mind to be undone with the Spirit.
