What Does It Mean to Have a Relationship with Jesus? – Asking for guidance can feel confusing when we’re not sure who it is we’re asking. Is it Jesus? Is it the Holy Spirit? God? Who should we direct our prayers toward? In this retreat talk, David helps us understand the proper use of symbols. And we’re told that Christ is the symbol of pure innocence, but it’s not the name or the word that’s important; it’s what it represents to us.
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.
How to Speed up Spiritual Awakening – David Hoffmeister shares practical experiences of living focused and purposeful lives of total devotion to the Spirit. He answers questions about the ego, regarding forgiveness, discerning the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the experience of listening to and following Jesus, and choosing in mind instead of attempting to manifest in form and create the future. The talk was a call to be clear on the purpose that leads to true freedom and awakening from the dream of the world.
All the emotions are being generated by clinging to a false self, by trying to protect a false identity. The way out is to pay close attention and notice when the contraction would come up. This way you can start seeing things in a helpful perspective. And you will see that every emotion relates to an identity attachment. This is a journey of emptying the mind, for it requires questioning every value that you hold. Not one can be kept hidden, or it will obscure your learning. Practicing this will lead towards the experience of consistent joy and peace of mind.
All symbols are used to free the mind and bring it into its natural state of brilliance and jubilation. The Spirit is not afraid of anything. You can be your authentic self: very loving, very friendly, very happy, and offending no one. The miracle of forgiveness offers everything you want.
