What Does It Mean to Rest in God? – In this online retreat experience, David will lead us through some of the key topics: mighty companions, trust, preferences, the definition of sin, resting in God and forgiving the monkey mind.
What Is the Experience of True Prayer? – David Hoffmeister draws the audience into an experience of forgiveness and purpose. Even though words are “twice removed from reality,” (M-21.1:10) the Holy Spirit can use them for healing, and David uses them to guide us into an experience of unified awareness, or “into the Kingdom.” We are like the prodigal son, who is welcomed by his father when he finally returns home. Let us return to our beautiful Mind together. This session also contains several questions and prayers from participants on a variety of topics, including devoting life to forgiveness, miracle worker training, and undoing what was never done!
How Can I Experience the Present Goal of Joy? – David Hoffmeister closes this remarkable online retreat with answers to our deepest questions as he shares that the world is a big mirror of our state of mind. Seemingly the mind is full of past memory implants, and human beings think they have a life of their own as well as a time between birth and death, where they can choose whatever they want, like a great adventure, except that the ego has rigged the whole thing! The memory implants never happened. It’s a world of imagination, and for most people, it’s actually not a happy dream when they come here. This world is not set up by God! Whatever you want from the world, the world wants from you. But if we give our judgment to the Holy Spirit, the perception of the world will change. The needs you think you have in the world will be reflected by other people having needs from you, because those thoughts are still thoughts in your mind. When we stop judging the world, the world seems to stop judging us!
What Is the Authority Problem in ACIM? – Issues that come up in parenting reflect the authority problem. The ego’s thought system rejects God as its Author and wants to assert its own free will, control, and authority. We are here to be givers. It is a state of mind that shares true generosity and holds the same loving attitude towards everyone we meet or think of.
We Are Here to Inspire and Bless Each Other Every Day – The purpose of A Course in Miracles is to become a living demonstration of God’s Love by merging into the “I am” Presence, our true Identity as Christ. It is a powerful tool for catapulting us into this experience of what we are, through the release of all that we are not. It requires first that we step fully into our function as a “minister of God,” “miracle worker,” “teacher of God,” etc., and release all other self-concepts we have held.
