Trust, Follow, Be Taken Care Of – Join David Hoffmeister as he looks at the importance of trust and following guidance as a means to the end. Other themes include fear of hurting other people’s feelings, control, releasing family people-pleasing, and releasing false responsibilities to give way for our true responsibility—our state of mind. Near the end of the session, everyone listened to the song “You raise me up,” and tears of concern and release were felt. Laughter erupted and the Spirit poured through with deep healing and bursting, cascading laughter.
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.
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.
The more you give yourself over to the joy of the Spirit, the more you see that your Plan Bs avail you nothing. The world’s mantra that we need to plan for the future and be prepared for all situations is not our real concern. Our real fear is present joining. As we give up our little plans and align our mind with the Spirit’s plan, we experience life as a joyful, spectacular unfolding.
Enjoy this rich talk that will help you gain an understanding of where our problems really lie: in the mind and nowhere else. All of our guilt, fear, and rage is all in the mind not out in the world. Accepting this is not only a time saver but your ticket to true freedom and peace of mind. Other topics include inspiring accounts of the lives of mystics such as Ghandi, William Whitson, and Living Miracles’ minister Frances Xu.
