Release from Fear – In this gathering, David walks us through fear, lack, and needs. It seems in this world, money is a source of life, and we are sustained by it. He shares about unwinding from these concerns by following the loving heart by asking: how would love spend money? When we identify with the body, attached, attracted, or repulsed, there is a lot of fear. David invites us to relax, to trust and have faith that everything will come and show us we are beyond this world. We have never lived in this world for one second. We don’t get out of something that’s real; We see that it was unreal and stop taking anything seriously.
What Is Forgiveness According to ACIM? – David transmits the presence of forgiveness and clarifies that it offers everything now. Process collapses in experience, and the Holy Spirit/Jesus is the “how.” The focus is solely on forgiveness, and not attempting to use past learning to solve projected problems of the body and world. Enlightenment is a state of mind, and persons or masks are never enlightened. The mask only seemed to cover over the light of Heaven and the Christ.
The mind’s only need is to know its natural state of peace, joy, and grace. Still, the Holy Spirit will always meet you right where you believe yourself to be. Thus, Divine Providence becomes a stepping-stone designed to convince you there is no sacrifice. Immerse yourself in the full experience of our “Awakening from the Dream” online retreat and find out how to live in divine providence with David Hoffmeister! “A healed mind is relieved of the belief that it must plan, although it cannot know the outcome which is best, the means by which it is achieved, nor how to recognize the problem that the plan is made to solve.” W-135.12:1
Jesus and the Holy Spirit want us to be happy and can use anything in our lives to help lead us to this experience; any thought or feeling that is not of supreme joy can be used. David describes in this talk some of the dialogues that he had with Jesus years ago when he was unwinding from the ego thought system. The workbook lessons of A Course in Miracles are extremely practical and are a powerful tool to help you experience consistent peace of mind.
Let your sleeping mind be reminded of the very important awareness that you are complete and healed and whole, and let nothing convince you otherwise. If you reacting to a situation in the world by feeling upset, you are reacting to something that is already over and gone. Only false interpretation is upsetting, and you have the power to accept the Holy Spirit’s interpretation of the world instead.
