Body as the Means to Heal the Mind – When the body is given much of the attention, the body becomes the end, and the mind is enslaved by the ego. The mind trains and works hard, getting more and more stressed, in order to benefit the body figure. When ambitions, goals, the future, and the body are all given back to the Spirit, the mind can breathe again, feel free and connected to the source. And the vitality and vibrancy of being used comes in.
Change Your Perception about Who You Are – The transformation of consciousness results from following the guidance from our inner teacher. David answers questions about Spirit using the symbols of the world to loosen the mind from the roles of self-concept. He also talks about “One problem, one solution,” (W-80.3:5) and the admission that one has a perceptual problem before healing in mind can occur.
Releasing All Judgments – Allowing the healing, allowing the help. David shares the point, the meaning of forgiveness (seeing the false as false). Forgiveness is quiet and does nothing. It looks and waits and watches and judges not. Both the “good” memories and the “bad” memories are the same, since they serve only to cover over the present. By hiding and protecting dark thoughts and memories, they are kept. In exposing darkness, darkness disappears, for nothing is kept from the healing light of the Holy Spirit. Participants open up and share their issues in this profound healing session.
Exposing Ego Delay Maneuvers – This talk by David Hoffmeister exposes the delay maneuvers, decoys, and defenses of the ego. Then David highlights the simple and direct path of forgiveness. David addresses: 1. Intellectual fixation. 2. Arrested development. 3. Interpretation traps. 4. Transfer of training limits. 5. Addiction to materialism. 6. Making idols of teachers. 7. The trap of possessions and control. 8. Trap of making a spiritual career. 9. “Ye shall know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:16) 10. Mentoring by demonstration. 11. Follow the demonstrations of Love and the bringers of the fruits.
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
