How Can I Experience the Present Goal of Joy? – David Hoffmeister closes this remarkable online retreat with answers to our deepest questions as he shares that the world is a big mirror of our state of mind. Seemingly the mind is full of past memory implants, and human beings think they have a life of their own as well as a time between birth and death, where they can choose whatever they want, like a great adventure, except that the ego has rigged the whole thing! The memory implants never happened. It’s a world of imagination, and for most people, it’s actually not a happy dream when they come here. This world is not set up by God! Whatever you want from the world, the world wants from you. But if we give our judgment to the Holy Spirit, the perception of the world will change. The needs you think you have in the world will be reflected by other people having needs from you, because those thoughts are still thoughts in your mind. When we stop judging the world, the world seems to stop judging us!
Listen to Joy! – This gathering with David explores some of the deepest teachings, including there is nothing here to save, truth as experience, practical spirituality, choice comes with linear time and the choiceless choice, being in the flow of ‘what is,’ spontaneity and joy of the involuntary nature of the miracles.
The Joy of Oneness – Join in love completely, dismantle the status quo and everything that seems to be known. Beyond the familiar is the present moment and eternity, and such happiness and joy of Oneness!
What Is the Authority Problem in ACIM? – Issues that come up in parenting reflect the authority problem. The ego’s thought system rejects God as its Author and wants to assert its own free will, control, and authority. We are here to be givers. It is a state of mind that shares true generosity and holds the same loving attitude towards everyone we meet or think of.
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.
