Different Spiritual Pathways, One Helpful Belief – David demonstrates and teaches on the idea that to the healed mind, everything in the world of form is the same. And all beliefs are the same in that they are equally meaningless, all except forgiveness. This is the one helpful belief! So to such a mind that has accepted forgiveness, it makes no difference who he is with; a lightness and joy is felt and extended to all. Other topics in this talk include the bottom-up versus the top-down approach to awakening, talking about healing versus living the experience, and the difficulties that arise when judgments are projected and exceptions are made in regard to transferring the training. Enjoy!

Pride is part of the human condition. David Hoffmeister dives deep into this condition of being human and offers the brilliant correction that the Holy Spirit has for this misperception. Discover the common grievance—judgment—that is at the root of all problems, so you can release it. Here are everyday issues and the practical teaching on how to free the mind of the guilt that underlies these basic issues.
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.
All symbols are used to free the mind and bring it into its natural state of brilliance and jubilation. The Spirit is not afraid of anything. You can be your authentic self: very loving, very friendly, very happy, and offending no one. The miracle of forgiveness offers everything you want.
