How Can I Experience the Present Goal of Joy? – David Hoffmeister closes this remarkable online retreat with answers to our deepest questions as he shares that the world is a big mirror of our state of mind. Seemingly the mind is full of past memory implants, and human beings think they have a life of their own as well as a time between birth and death, where they can choose whatever they want, like a great adventure, except that the ego has rigged the whole thing! The memory implants never happened. It’s a world of imagination, and for most people, it’s actually not a happy dream when they come here. This world is not set up by God! Whatever you want from the world, the world wants from you. But if we give our judgment to the Holy Spirit, the perception of the world will change. The needs you think you have in the world will be reflected by other people having needs from you, because those thoughts are still thoughts in your mind. When we stop judging the world, the world seems to stop judging us!
Releasing Projection to Enter the Holy Instant – In this talk, David speaks about the topic of projection and addresses the basic cause and effect relationship in the mind. Love extends, and the ego projects. The process of forgiveness requires the exposure and release of the belief in external causation. And all magic involves a belief that form can be causative. In the end, spiritual awakening requires the release of all magical beliefs. When the level of fear is high, a mixture of magic and miracle may be helpful. Time and eternity can conflict until the belief in time is released.
What Is Beyond the Body? – The body is in the mind; the mind is not in the body. In this online session, David delves into what it means to go beyond the body. To go beyond the body, we have to start to think of ourselves as an idea. We have to learn to come back to our mind. Enjoy this interactive session with teachings and music.
Release from Fear – In this gathering, David walks us through fear, lack, and needs. It seems in this world, money is a source of life, and we are sustained by it. He shares about unwinding from these concerns by following the loving heart by asking: how would love spend money? When we identify with the body, attached, attracted, or repulsed, there is a lot of fear. David invites us to relax, to trust and have faith that everything will come and show us we are beyond this world. We have never lived in this world for one second. We don’t get out of something that’s real; We see that it was unreal and stop taking anything seriously.
Trust, Follow, Be Taken Care Of – Join David Hoffmeister as he looks at the importance of trust and following guidance as a means to the end. Other themes include fear of hurting other people’s feelings, control, releasing family people-pleasing, and releasing false responsibilities to give way for our true responsibility—our state of mind. Near the end of the session, everyone listened to the song “You raise me up,” and tears of concern and release were felt. Laughter erupted and the Spirit poured through with deep healing and bursting, cascading laughter.
