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.
In this Mystery School, David Hoffmeister asks the students to share their experiences with the movie that was shown earlier that day, “The Family Stone”. The students then share their thoughts and expressions while David shares his insight. Topics include; Sickness, Relationships, Projection, Fear of Death, Family.
What is the cure for pain and suffering? How do you deal with sickness on this path to Awakening? In this audio, David Hoffmeister answers an email (read by Sarah) from a friend who’s seeking help with this topic. David’s answer offers a permanent cure for pain and suffering, rather than just a temporary relief from distress. This is an amazing reply full of clarity, true empathy, and real Love.
The real treasures of mind training within a community of focused mighty companions – This is all just appearing in your mind. There is nothing outside of you. Everything you are asking for is within you. Nothing is out of order. Nothing has ever been out of order. Everything is in Divine order.
In this radical episode David Hoffmeister extends the message that, if you judge the world or yourself, you are not seeing with unified perception. In this case, you need to admit that your mind and therefore, the world, is cracked! Feeling guilty comes from this perceptual problem of duality; the belief that there is an inner and outer. The purpose of the Workbook of A Course in Miracles is to train your mind to see that this is not so.
