How Can I Have Fun with Spiritual Awakening? – David Hoffmeister shares about the previous night’s movie, Yesterday, and reminds us about the Beatles’ influence on our mind and John Lennon’s extension of love through the music. David also shares his own journey with Jesus and A Course in Miracles. He emphasizes the importance of purpose and talks about how we are getting ready to move into a new phase and how to use the symbols for Awakening. David gives a beautiful context for the Living Miracles spiritual community and how it was founded, as well as how he received guidelines for the community in the form of “No people-pleasing and no private thoughts.”
Holy Spirit Is the Comforter – Gain a new perspective of our fear of love and the role of the Comforter. Join David as he takes us deeper into how our fear of love and intimacy is really the fear of the power of our mind, that somehow we actually had the power to miscreate and turn away from God’s Love. But God answered this strange belief instantaneously with the Comforter, the Holy Spirit.
We Are Here to Inspire and Bless Each Other Every Day – The purpose of A Course in Miracles is to become a living demonstration of God’s Love by merging into the “I am” Presence, our true Identity as Christ. It is a powerful tool for catapulting us into this experience of what we are, through the release of all that we are not. It requires first that we step fully into our function as a “minister of God,” “miracle worker,” “teacher of God,” etc., and release all other self-concepts we have held.
The Joy of True Freedom – The theme of transcending compromise and experiencing true freedom came forth in this session in Finland. All expectations and judgments arise from the self-concept that was made to take the place of reality. The purpose of forgiveness stabilizes perception. Open and expand from littleness to magnitude in awareness to allow true extending of God’s Love to pour through.
The Spirit’s purpose for this life is for freedom, to wake up from the dream of the world, not to attain and achieve. The ego’s use of the body, of family and education, is for reinforcing a personal separate identity. But you are Spirit and must unlearn everything the ego has taught you. Your only responsibility is accepting the correction. It is not about dropping worldly responsibilities, but having them all handed to Spirit who would address them through a path of miracles. David says the Course can be summed up in the Serenity Prayer, recognizing what you can and cannot control and the wisdom to know the difference. What you can control is your state of mind. What you cannot control is the world, and everything associated with the world. Have gratitude and appreciation for everybody, because they are helping you to forgive.
