David intimately shares an invitation to community living, (a devotional stay application form can be found at https://livingmiraclescenter.org/centers/devotional-stays.html), as he looks back upon 25 years of travel to gatherings, holy encounters, and establishing communities that have grown in number and size.
A Course in Miracles teaches: “You have but two emotions, love and fear.” T-13.V.1 Ultimately the only thing we are afraid of, is Love. The ego would have you believe that there are other, specific things in the world to fear, because it wants to protect itself from being exposed to the light of truth: the things it wants you to fear are actually just distractions to keep you from the awareness of your desire for God. Under the Spirit’s Guidance, miracles occur absolutely involuntarily; every person, every place, and every situation will be used for the healing of your mind.
Mystical community is purely a state of mind; a community without walls, unstructured, and with no concern of the location or how many people involved. The practicalities and logistics are taken care of naturally in this open, Spirit-focused state of mind, which is everything! The concept of ownership does not belong here. David Hoffmeister and Nikita Sparks explore the contracts of conduct and the reciprocity implied in holding on to a personal identity. Shared agreements can be a helpful stepping-stone but not an alternative to Trust. By learning to trust the laws of God you develop a faith and a certainty in Spirit that lifts you out of the laws of the world.
As you begin working with the ideas of “A Course in Miracles,” fear may arise. It is only ego-thinking that causes upset. To attain a state of sustained happiness, you must free the mind of ego-thinking and become reliant only on Spirit.
Hear the wisdom of the present state of mind which transcends time and space! Living in the present moment is an experience. Through listening to and following guidance, Spirit leads you into an all-inclusive Presence that leaves no room for Newtonian, linear thinking. Your experience will expand into one of quantum simultaneity, from fragmented perception into pure Oneness!
