In My Defenselessness My Safety Lies – In this Q&A session, David Hoffmeister addresses questions such as “How can we go through the experience of the death of a loved one with more peace and less pain?” “How do I dominate the ego?” and “How can I break out of ego confusion?” The gathering also includes a discussion on releasing the ego’s sense of protecting and protectionism. Protecting is a block to clarity and peace of mind.
Get ready for an “A Course in Miracles” straight talk from David Hoffmeister, a heart-to-heart communication about the core of true letting-go. You are being called back home to God. There is no need for delay, compromise, or distraction of any kind. Accept this loving gift from the Spirit now and let everything else pass you by.
The Spirit’s purpose for this life is for freedom, to wake up from the dream of the world, not to attain and achieve. The ego’s use of the body, of family and education, is for reinforcing a personal separate identity. But you are Spirit and must unlearn everything the ego has taught you. Your only responsibility is accepting the correction. It is not about dropping worldly responsibilities, but having them all handed to Spirit who would address them through a path of miracles. David says the Course can be summed up in the Serenity Prayer, recognizing what you can and cannot control and the wisdom to know the difference. What you can control is your state of mind. What you cannot control is the world, and everything associated with the world. Have gratitude and appreciation for everybody, because they are helping you to forgive.
“You are not guiltless in time, but in eternity.” Time must be released to experience the innocence of Spirit. Guidance is the Holy Spirit’s use of judgment to free the mind of ego and time. David Hoffmeister answers a question from the audience about the meaning of “The script is written”: See that you can’t change the past. Bring your illusions to truth and face the unconscious mind so you can come into true forgiveness.
The Holy Spirit uses time to teach us that there is no time. This is a real experience that can only be pointed to in the present moment. Will you jump aboard?
