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.
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.
In this talk, David makes the profound connection that if we are valuing anything in this world we are actually choosing hatred over love. In truth, there is no difference between the things that bring us pleasure and the things that cause us pain. There is an unconscious fear in the mind that we are in competition with God. Enjoy these deep and uncompromising messages from David that will help accelerate your awakening if you choose.
It is time for our wake-up call! Each day, every moment, is an invitation to behold the vast love and glory of God. The witnesses need only be welcomed into the heart and mind. Pray, meditate, and let us be about shining the amazing love of Spirit. There are so many opportunities for forgiveness, and so many tools available to help a willing mind awaken.
