Exposing Ego Delay Maneuvers – This talk by David Hoffmeister exposes the delay maneuvers, decoys, and defenses of the ego. Then David highlights the simple and direct path of forgiveness. David addresses: 1. Intellectual fixation. 2. Arrested development. 3. Interpretation traps. 4. Transfer of training limits. 5. Addiction to materialism. 6. Making idols of teachers. 7. The trap of possessions and control. 8. Trap of making a spiritual career. 9. “Ye shall know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:16) 10. Mentoring by demonstration. 11. Follow the demonstrations of Love and the bringers of the fruits.
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.
“A Course in Miracles” is about making your mind ready for revelation which comes from Spirit to Spirit. Everything in this world aims at the experience that the past is over and can touch you not. This world is only an experience of your mind, and is not apart from it. The straight and narrow path is non-judgment. Let go into the experience that all form is an image in the mind. If you see magnificence in the world you’re simply coming into the experience of your own magnificence. History and studying this world is really much ado about nothing and your daily experience can always be of happiness, joy, and welcoming. “The holiest spot on earth is where an ancient hatred has become a present love.” T-26.IX.6:1 Prepare for the undoing of what never was; take it easy and learn to laugh. In the end it takes Jesus to reveal the meaning of forgiveness and the real world to you and there is nothing you must do.
Everything you perceive is in your mind, but your perception is distorted. It’s like this cosmos is like a giant, cracked mirror that shattered into trillions and trillions of pieces. In this shattered mirror there is no sense of harmony, no sense of lasting harmony. All symbols you perceive seem to only reflect fragmentation. In The Matrix, Neo meets his teacher Morpheus and takes the red pill to learn the truth; he encounters a cracked mirror and reaches over to touch it with a sense of curiosity, and the mirror becomes whole; all the cracks vanish. This is a symbol of healing perception and that is what this path is all about: allowing the Spirit to heal your perception and see everything wholly and holy! See that there never was a crack in the mirror at all!
Join David Hoffmeister during this inspiring talk on answering the Call of your Heart. If you want to experience the leap into Spirit, make the commitment now! You are not choosing a situation or agreeing to a specific assignment, but opening to a state of mind. You are answering the Call to transcend the world. This is the relinquishment of a belief in a separate self with separate interests. David reads from Clarence Steves’ Sermon on the Mount, a speech purely from the Spirit: “Never accept the suggestion that you are a ‘loving person,’ or a ‘good student.’ Love is never personal, nor are there ‘good students.’
