David Hoffmeister holds a Q&A session with the students on day two of the Tabula Rasa Mystery School. He opens the session by reminding the students that there may be extreme emotions to face during this month, but with willingness and an open mind we can expect many miracles and synchronicities to carry us along. Questions include: 1. Do the 12 step program and the Course go together? 2. Commitment in terms of content and when do we start to see the goods? 3. A question on going backward on the spiritual journey. 4. Is being gay an abomination? 5. Paramahansa Yogananda and eastern philosophy. 6. Abuse and victimization. 7. Sickness.
In this Mystery School, David Hoffmeister asks the students to share their experiences with the movie that was shown earlier that day, “The Family Stone”. The students then share their thoughts and expressions while David shares his insight. Topics include; Sickness, Relationships, Projection, Fear of Death, Family.
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.
Enjoy this rich talk that will help you gain an understanding of where our problems really lie: in the mind and nowhere else. All of our guilt, fear, and rage is all in the mind not out in the world. Accepting this is not only a time saver but your ticket to true freedom and peace of mind. Other topics include inspiring accounts of the lives of mystics such as Ghandi, William Whitson, and Living Miracles’ minister Frances Xu.
Jesus and the Holy Spirit want us to be happy and can use anything in our lives to help lead us to this experience; any thought or feeling that is not of supreme joy can be used. David describes in this talk some of the dialogues that he had with Jesus years ago when he was unwinding from the ego thought system. The workbook lessons of A Course in Miracles are extremely practical and are a powerful tool to help you experience consistent peace of mind.
