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.
Undoing all attachments comes from trust—not trust in persons or things, but trust in the higher Self and intuition. You will reach a state of mind with no ambitions. There is a Presence of Love that transcends differences and comparisons and judgments. Everything blends into one experience, like a happy, delicious milkshake.
When we put the Kingdom of Heaven first, Spirit will arrange everything for us, we do not have to worry about how it will unfold. Be like a feather in the wind, living in the flow of trust, and divine providence will carry you. This is the message of the Holy Spirit; that when you put His purpose first, everything you need in this world will come without effort. But we can’t just wish the ego thought system away. As David Hoffmeister tells us in this talk, we have to purify the mind; we have to let Holy Spirit unwind us out.
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.
Awakening is to wake up from the dream of separation. Join David Hoffmeister as he shares about his spiritual journey. The process of forgiveness A Course in Miracles teaches is a skill that is strengthened with practice, just like riding a bike or baking! There is a certain amount of training required and that is what time is for. Time is simultaneous instead of linear. Sin is an error to be corrected and the correction comes from the Holy Spirit. As we allow Spirit to lead the way without any exception in our lives, we start to experience a forgiven world.
