The mind’s only need is to know its natural state of peace, joy, and grace. Still, the Holy Spirit will always meet you right where you believe yourself to be. Thus, Divine Providence becomes a stepping-stone designed to convince you there is no sacrifice. Immerse yourself in the full experience of our “Awakening from the Dream” online retreat and find out how to live in divine providence with David Hoffmeister! “A healed mind is relieved of the belief that it must plan, although it cannot know the outcome which is best, the means by which it is achieved, nor how to recognize the problem that the plan is made to solve.” W-135.12:1
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%.
In this mind-expanding talk, David Hoffmeister and friends speak about “Seek Ye the first the Kingdom” and divine providence and share their experiences of how everything is truly given to fulfill the plan of Awakening.
The body cannot be sick nor healthy! David Hoffmeister goes deeply into the ideas behind the “ordering of thoughts”, explaining clearly the difference between the ego’s thoughts and God’s Thoughts.
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.
