How to Let Go of Judgment – How do we make this shift of mind from following the ego and aligning with all its judgments to having a clear Christ-like mind? The Holy Spirit’s practical, moment to moment guidance is the answer. Each time we follow the Spirit’s specific directions, it helps to wash away our separate sense of self, and our lives begin to take on an ease and a flow. You start to feel empowered and more and more like you are not in the world. Other themes in this talk include: Awakening and taking responsibility for our state of mind.
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
Our only way out of this nightmare of our own making is to start deciding with the Holy Spirit. His view is from beyond space and time so a very powerful prayer becomes: Holy Spirit decide for God for me. Jesus’ sole purpose of A Course in Miracles is to help put us in touch with this internal Guide so that we are no longer deceived by who is guiding us from moment to moment. David uses a variety of examples and metaphors to make the point that everything is digital and everything is consciousness, even though the ego uses substitutions and compromises to maintain guilt. We need to focus on accepting the Solution and not attempt to fix external “problems.”
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.
David Hoffmeister tells us that the clever one, or ego, which he refers to as an ingenious puff of nothingness, created a world to distract us from who we really are, and can be overcome simply by listening to and following the Holy Spirit.
