How Can I End the Cycle of Guilt and Attack? – David shares in this online retreat when you realize that “The script is written” (W-158.4:3) and there is no choice in form, you realize that you can only decide between the ego’s purpose of death or the Holy Spirit’s purpose of forgiveness, and realizing that you are the dreamer of the dream and not the dream figure. “Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.” T-21.In.1:7 When we join with the Holy Spirit in our mind, we slowly loosen our attachment to the images of the world, the roles we play, and the hooks we thought we were hung up on. The key is this moment. The key is to want the holy instant more than anything else.
What Is the Forgiven World? – In this online retreat, David shares that the forgiven world is being in the Presence of God’s Love, to be in the present moment. Imagine how happy you would be if you didn’t perceive any error. No matter what anybody said or did, you would still be in the divine flow. You would have no need to correct anybody, no need to fix anybody. You would have no need to change any person, place, or circumstance. You would have no need to please anybody either. To be in that experience, we have to be with the Spirit, and when we open our hearts to that vision, we can truly feel that everything works together for good.
What Is Our True Function? – David Hoffmeister takes us on a joyful deep dive into the question of “What is our true function?” And in order for us to raise our awareness to be one with God, we need a lot of help. Jesus is a symbol of that help. Jesus completed his part and accepted the Atonement for himself. He is the first miracle, the last miracle, and all the miracles in-between. Therefore, it’s good for us to call on him and trust that he’s got us covered in the end, despite what we think of ourselves right now. David also provides answers to how to empty the mind and what true helpfulness is.
How Can I Be Connected and Receive Guidance? – David Hoffmeister welcomes the participants of this week-long retreat and shares opening remarks from his heart, including examples of mystical experiences, collaboration, and the value of mind training for dismantling the ego. He also guides us on the experience of listening and following our intuition.
Let the Thoughts up into Awareness – David and friends sink deeply exploring these topics: living in community, trusting guidance, sharing miracles, divine providence, being treated unfairly, and asking the veil to be lifted with forgiveness. They also discuss how the Mystical Mind Training program, music listening, and the Movie Watcher’s Guide to Enlightenment are helpful tools to make Awakening more fun.
