What If I Give My Family to the Spirit? – David invites us to find the strength of Christ inside of our Self. If you believe that you are a person in a world apart from mind and hold the self-concept of being a family member in a family, you deny our Self as Christ. By including everyone in mind and seeing that there is nothing apart from mind, the all-inclusive experience of the family of Mind of Christ is revealed. We are spirit, one Self.
The Joy of Oneness – Join in love completely, dismantle the status quo and everything that seems to be known. Beyond the familiar is the present moment and eternity, and such happiness and joy of Oneness!
Releasing All Judgments – Allowing the healing, allowing the help. David shares the point, the meaning of forgiveness (seeing the false as false). Forgiveness is quiet and does nothing. It looks and waits and watches and judges not. Both the “good” memories and the “bad” memories are the same, since they serve only to cover over the present. By hiding and protecting dark thoughts and memories, they are kept. In exposing darkness, darkness disappears, for nothing is kept from the healing light of the Holy Spirit. Participants open up and share their issues in this profound healing session.
The sleeping mind is addicted to time. The ego uses time to keep you stuck, but the Holy Spirit works with this belief to take the mind out of time and into eternity. The joyride starts when you allow the Holy Spirit to use you. Heart-opening experiences come from following the steps that are given. The symbols of this world are neutral. The Holy Spirit uses them to convince you that there is a Presence with you, just loving you; a memory of your Self. The Holy Spirit uses the concept of community for the purpose of practicing forgiveness. We are mesmerized by the ego’s world, and community can be used as a symbol of your willingness to face the intensity of this mesmerism. You need never be discouraged that this unwinding takes time, for “Time is your friend, if you leave it to the Holy Spirit to use,” (T-15.I.15:1) and we hold each other’s hands as we walk through the darkness to the light.
Jesus knows the way to truth beyond the endless maze of roles, concepts, and beliefs that we have accumulated in this world. Transcending fear requires listening to and following guidance. David Hoffmeister shares how Jesus used the mechanism of travel to undo the belief in ego preferences and attachments, and thus to undo fear. Family roles and responsibilities are often a concern as we start to embark on the path back to truth. Jesus works with us gently to unwind the mind. David’s sharing on this topic is especially helpful for anyone who feels the confusion of responsibility to both family and the spiritual journey.
