Change Your Perception about Who You Are – The transformation of consciousness results from following the guidance from our inner teacher. David answers questions about Spirit using the symbols of the world to loosen the mind from the roles of self-concept. He also talks about “One problem, one solution,” (W-80.3:5) and the admission that one has a perceptual problem before healing in mind can occur.
Releasing All Judgments – Allowing the healing, allowing the help. David shares the point, the meaning of forgiveness (seeing the false as false). Forgiveness is quiet and does nothing. It looks and waits and watches and judges not. Both the “good” memories and the “bad” memories are the same, since they serve only to cover over the present. By hiding and protecting dark thoughts and memories, they are kept. In exposing darkness, darkness disappears, for nothing is kept from the healing light of the Holy Spirit. Participants open up and share their issues in this profound healing session.
How to Speed up Spiritual Awakening – David Hoffmeister shares practical experiences of living focused and purposeful lives of total devotion to the Spirit. He answers questions about the ego, regarding forgiveness, discerning the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the experience of listening to and following Jesus, and choosing in mind instead of attempting to manifest in form and create the future. The talk was a call to be clear on the purpose that leads to true freedom and awakening from the dream of the world.
All the emotions are being generated by clinging to a false self, by trying to protect a false identity. The way out is to pay close attention and notice when the contraction would come up. This way you can start seeing things in a helpful perspective. And you will see that every emotion relates to an identity attachment. This is a journey of emptying the mind, for it requires questioning every value that you hold. Not one can be kept hidden, or it will obscure your learning. Practicing this will lead towards the experience of consistent joy and peace of mind.
David Hoffmeister holds a Q&A session with the students on day two of the Tabula Rasa Mystery School. He opens the session by reminding the students that there may be extreme emotions to face during this month, but with willingness and an open mind we can expect many miracles and synchronicities to carry us along. Questions include: 1. Do the 12 step program and the Course go together? 2. Commitment in terms of content and when do we start to see the goods? 3. A question on going backward on the spiritual journey. 4. Is being gay an abomination? 5. Paramahansa Yogananda and eastern philosophy. 6. Abuse and victimization. 7. Sickness.
