What Is the Forgiven World? – In this online retreat, David shares that the forgiven world is being in the Presence of God’s Love, to be in the present moment. Imagine how happy you would be if you didn’t perceive any error. No matter what anybody said or did, you would still be in the divine flow. You would have no need to correct anybody, no need to fix anybody. You would have no need to change any person, place, or circumstance. You would have no need to please anybody either. To be in that experience, we have to be with the Spirit, and when we open our hearts to that vision, we can truly feel that everything works together for good.
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.
Just like the fig leaves that were used to hide Adam and Eve’s “private parts” in the Bible story, this entire cosmos was made up as a “cosmic fig leaf” to hide your seemingly private mind from the Light of God! Although many spiritualities teach that this world was a Divine Creation of God, A Course in Miracles makes it very clear that God had nothing to do with this world. Go deeply into the metaphysics of the Course with this Enlightenment ACIM talk.
The Holy Spirit uses time to teach us that there is no time. This is a real experience that can only be pointed to in the present moment. Will you jump aboard?
Easter is a time of celebration of the symbol of the resurrection, but as David Hoffmeister says in this talk, it is not the resurrection of the body of Jesus. It is a resurrection of the mind. Until you free your mind completely from the belief system called ego, until you transcended it entirely, you are “hook, line, and sinker” of that system. It is time to accept the resurrection for yourself! The movie Transcendence is referred to throughout the talk.
