What Does It Mean to Rest in God? – In this online retreat experience, David will lead us through some of the key topics: mighty companions, trust, preferences, the definition of sin, resting in God and forgiving the monkey mind.
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.
What Does It Mean to Have a Relationship with Jesus? – Asking for guidance can feel confusing when we’re not sure who it is we’re asking. Is it Jesus? Is it the Holy Spirit? God? Who should we direct our prayers toward? In this retreat talk, David helps us understand the proper use of symbols. And we’re told that Christ is the symbol of pure innocence, but it’s not the name or the word that’s important; it’s what it represents to us.
