David Hoffmeister tells us that the clever one, or ego, which he refers to as an ingenious puff of nothingness, created a world to distract us from who we really are, and can be overcome simply by listening to and following the Holy Spirit.
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.
The Presence of Spirit is absolutely uncompromising and absolutely practical. He reaches you right where you think you are in this world, and uses all symbols to lead you into the experience of abstraction.
David Hoffmeister provides a new perspective on problem solving. Trying to solve the only problem, the belief in separation and a world apart from the Kingdom of Heaven, cannot be solved with any means this world offers. When you free your mind from thinking that you know how to fix your only problem and turn your mind in the direction of Spirit, you open to miracles and your life can take on a miraculous quality. To the extent that you open yourself to forgiveness and collaboration with Spirit and practice forgiving all illusions, will the specific problems and questions fade and fade from the mind until they ultimately evaporate.
When you start to realize that the peace of God is really all you want, the whole perception of the universe changes to reflect that single desire, and you have an experience of time and of the world that is completely unlike any experience you ever had before. What is time really? The open mind asks this question. This journey is about a collapsing of time and a surrendering and letting go, and about opening your heart to the realization that all of time is simultaneous. All problems are based in linear time, and there are no problems now. In this great talk, David Hoffmeister also explores the ego’s fear of meaninglessness. The feeling of intense fear is your invitation to call upon the miracle to enter your holy mind! “There will come a time when images have all gone by, and you will see you know not what you are. It is to this unsealed and open mind that truth returns, unhindered and unbound.” T-31.V.17.2-3
