What Is Christ’s Vision? – We need to be taught innocence as little children because we are brought up with the ego’s way of adding meaning to and sorting out the reasons and purposes of the world. It wants us to take sides of what is good and what is bad, and it wants us to keep asking ourselves to make decisions in the world, based on whom the ego tells us to be. This is where all the chaos comes from. We have to unwind from it all by following the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Like in children’s eyes, everything is miraculous. Everything is perfect. No bad guys, no good guys, no sides. Just innocence and trust. That is our way of learning how to perceive a new world, perceive Christ’s vision. Enjoy this retreat experience with David Hoffmeister and the interactions between him and the participants.
How Can I Live an Inspired Life? – Fragmented perception is the problem, and happily, trust is the answer to all perceptual problems. David Hoffmeister shares parables from his perceptual dreamscape of how he transferred trust to Jesus and the Holy Spirit and away from the ego. David reminds us that all circumstances and situations are a prearranged plan to provide us with opportunities to let go of the ego.
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.
