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!
Meet the Conditions, Meet the Creator – God is the First Cause; there is no other. He creates like Himself; Love extends forever. To give and to receive are one in truth. W-108 We always give to ourselves. Decide that you cannot decide anything; simply show up for Christ. Let Him show you how to meet the conditions of the Kingdom. In love, joy, and peace, we meet the Creator.
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.
The mind’s only need is to know its natural state of peace, joy, and grace. Still, the Holy Spirit will always meet you right where you believe yourself to be. Thus, Divine Providence becomes a stepping-stone designed to convince you there is no sacrifice. Immerse yourself in the full experience of our “Awakening from the Dream” online retreat and find out how to live in divine providence with David Hoffmeister! “A healed mind is relieved of the belief that it must plan, although it cannot know the outcome which is best, the means by which it is achieved, nor how to recognize the problem that the plan is made to solve.” W-135.12:1
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.
