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.
Salvation Is in Your Mind. Find It! – This talk goes into some profound distinctions between specialness and being joined and connected in the purpose of forgiveness. Salvation is our only function in the world, and the only concept that is helpful is forgiveness; forgiveness is salvation. It is like the golden needle in the haystack of your mind. It seems buried amidst many other thoughts, but you can and must find it! The Holy Spirit is speaking to you all through the day, offering you the “breadcrumbs” you need to find this golden needle that will lead you back to the Kingdom of Heaven within.
Paradise Is a State of Mind – In this retreat, David and friends share the awakening experience of being in alignment with God, with practical examples. They talk about how the world was made by the ego as a distraction from the Spirit, and how to unplug from the concepts of the world and become free of burdens in the mind. Lightheartedness and freedom are not dependent on circumstances or things being a certain way in the world.
Accepting Holy Spirit’s Means of Success – In this gathering, David shares a humorous dialog with Jesus and explains how he was spoken to and then spoken through by Jesus. David invites us to live as if there is no world and trust our intuition and merge with Spirit. Many topics are covered in the Q&A session, including the forgiveness story with his dad and origins of the Course.
Who You Are Is Happiness – In this retreat, David Hoffmeister shares parables and practical examples of a deep inward journey. While searching for happiness in form will inevitably lead to disappointment, David shares that you will become so competent in the presence of the Holy Spirit that you will no longer feel you are in this world, that you will have a big smile in your mind with everything, and that is the point of everything, to be happy, to find true happiness.
