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.
The Real Alternative – The mind tries to find all sorts of distractions, such as television and entertainment, to avoid looking at the desperation, deep sense of loss, disillusionment, meaninglessness, and fear. Come join David as he takes you through the “dark night of the soul” into the real alternative. When you see that trials and tribulations have no value, you’ll let go of the investment in illusions. Listen to that small, still voice within, and follow it as it takes you beyond the darkness into heights of happiness.
Seek within and Find Everything You Truly Desire – When aligning with the ego’s thought system, we are forever chasing future happiness and are never satisfied with our current situation. As we turn our lives over to the Spirit, we discover that everything we ever sought outside of ourselves is within: true freedom, happiness, and everlasting peace. Other topics in this talk include: discerning between the ego and the Holy Spirit, family relationships, letting go of our attempts to control the world of form and accepting that the only thing we can control is our state of mind.
Why Release Private Thoughts? – The Living Miracles community guidelines emphasize the importance of not holding on to private thoughts. We are not the thinker of the thoughts. When private thoughts are protected, the identification of being the thinker of the thoughts is also protected. By expressing private thoughts as guided, we are supporting each other in letting go of the false identification and coming to an awareness of truth.
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.
