The goal of the spiritual path is mysticism, which could be described as the gateway to Enlightenment or to the real world. Enlightenment is when the mind has been emptied of all concepts and beliefs, leaving only the pure experience of your Christ-Self in union with God. As you sink deeper into mysticism the ego’s voice will get louder and more vicious, throwing up lots of future fear-thoughts to keep your mind from continuing its journey into stillness. The ego has no existence in the stillness of Christ, and so all fear is really the ego’s fear of nonexistence. For this reason, trusting the Holy Spirit is key and will guide you through the layers of ego resistance again and again, until the ego has been released from the mind entirely. Go for God 100%.
God did not create projection, and so as you goes deeper into the awareness of Love’s Presence, the concepts of projection and manifestation must fall away. Non-dual ACIM teachings point you towards a purified state. At first you will find that you have outgrown religion and ultimately you will outgrow all spirituality as well! Dive into the pure, non-dual Love, open communication, and Presence that is shared here as a starting point for accepting Spirit as the only Reality there is.
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.
The power of forgiveness is alive and ever-present! Those who have gone before us have paved the way. We simply need to keep on moving! Look closely and take responsibility for your state of mind. This is the way out of the personality-self.
David Hoffmeister shares just how practical spirituality can be. As you get in touch with your internal teacher, the Holy Spirit, and ask for His interpretation to come through you, you are washed clean of the ego’s judgment, and can learn to think with God.
