Pulling the Plug on the Ego – The mind that is trapped in the ego is seeking freedom in the world. Do not attempt to understand or figure out this world. The Course teaches that “My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.” W-11 It is the mind that needs help and healing. To the degree that we do not define the problem, we can allow the Spirit to guide us to find the real problem (belief in separation) and real solution (Atonement).
Are You Ready to Join Me in Heaven Now? – David Hoffmeister shares an uncompromising session on the peace and freedom of laying aside all self-concepts. The practicalities of guidance and following the guidance are the focus, rather than form outcomes. Other topics include true forgiveness, worthiness, what is valuable and what is valueless, and the joy of extending miracles.
Our true reality is a Spiritual Kingdom, and in this Kingdom we are all One and nothing is missing. But when the ego made the world, the mind fell asleep and forgot this Oneness. In its place a world of separation was projected in which the idea of loss seems to make sense. Now must the Holy Spirit convince us that loss is impossible, and that as we awaken everyone gains. Open your heart to the Spirit, and you will be shown that no one can lose and everyone must gain by your decision to awaken.
This talk delves into the stillness and joy of mysticism. We are reminded that unlike what we may have been taught, we have just one responsibility and that is to simply be happy. As our minds let go of other worldly responsibilities and concerns, we discover that everything has been provided for our happiness with no exceptions.
Mystical community is purely a state of mind; a community without walls, unstructured, and with no concern of the location or how many people involved. The practicalities and logistics are taken care of naturally in this open, Spirit-focused state of mind, which is everything! The concept of ownership does not belong here. David Hoffmeister and Nikita Sparks explore the contracts of conduct and the reciprocity implied in holding on to a personal identity. Shared agreements can be a helpful stepping-stone but not an alternative to Trust. By learning to trust the laws of God you develop a faith and a certainty in Spirit that lifts you out of the laws of the world.
