What Does It Mean to Have a Relationship with Jesus? – Asking for guidance can feel confusing when we’re not sure who it is we’re asking. Is it Jesus? Is it the Holy Spirit? God? Who should we direct our prayers toward? In this retreat talk, David helps us understand the proper use of symbols. And we’re told that Christ is the symbol of pure innocence, but it’s not the name or the word that’s important; it’s what it represents to us.
In My Defenselessness My Safety Lies – In this Q&A session, David Hoffmeister addresses questions such as “How can we go through the experience of the death of a loved one with more peace and less pain?” “How do I dominate the ego?” and “How can I break out of ego confusion?” The gathering also includes a discussion on releasing the ego’s sense of protecting and protectionism. Protecting is a block to clarity and peace of mind.
The World Is a Dream – David shares an opening night gathering in Monterrey, Mexico. Topics include releasing attachments to time and roles and forgiving the belief in death and loss.
Seeing No Error – Nothing in time and space is really free, because the ego made it. This is the ego’s world. This linear, fragmented world of division and separation is hell. There must be a deep clearing and emptying of the mind, a deep purification of all ego goals, values, concepts, and allowance of the darkness to come up to reach a state of mind that is joined with the Holy Spirit. This mind knows only innocence, sees only innocence, and sees no error. Any darkness in the mind does need to be released. Once this purification has occurred, all the love and gratitude in our hearts will naturally begin to pour out.
What Is Forgiveness According to ACIM? – David transmits the presence of forgiveness and clarifies that it offers everything now. Process collapses in experience, and the Holy Spirit/Jesus is the “how.” The focus is solely on forgiveness, and not attempting to use past learning to solve projected problems of the body and world. Enlightenment is a state of mind, and persons or masks are never enlightened. The mask only seemed to cover over the light of Heaven and the Christ.
