Love Is Reached through Forgiveness – In a life fully devoted to God, the miracle is always present. David and friends share on having no “life” of their own and experiencing that everything is given by the Spirit moment by moment. Examples are offered about living a life without compromise.
Offer Your Career to the Holy Spirit – In this talk, David Hoffmeister looks at career, money, and reciprocity. Money is neutral to the Holy Spirit, but to the ego, it is full of meaning. Because the ego is the belief in lack, and money is a symbol that it made up to solve the lack. In A Course in Miracles, Jesus is getting us to question where we believe our safety is and where we believe our sustenance comes from. Are you willing to trust Jesus when he says, “If you will give love away, if you will extend love, everything will be taken care of for you.” Many examples and parables are given.
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
Mystical community is purely a state of mind; a community without walls, unstructured, and with no concern of the location or how many people involved. The practicalities and logistics are taken care of naturally in this open, Spirit-focused state of mind, which is everything! The concept of ownership does not belong here. David Hoffmeister and Nikita Sparks explore the contracts of conduct and the reciprocity implied in holding on to a personal identity. Shared agreements can be a helpful stepping-stone but not an alternative to Trust. By learning to trust the laws of God you develop a faith and a certainty in Spirit that lifts you out of the laws of the world.
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.
