The goal of the spiritual path is mysticism, which could be described as the gateway to Enlightenment or to the real world. Enlightenment is when the mind has been emptied of all concepts and beliefs, leaving only the pure experience of your Christ-Self in union with God. As you sink deeper into mysticism the ego’s voice will get louder and more vicious, throwing up lots of future fear-thoughts to keep your mind from continuing its journey into stillness. The ego has no existence in the stillness of Christ, and so all fear is really the ego’s fear of nonexistence. For this reason, trusting the Holy Spirit is key and will guide you through the layers of ego resistance again and again, until the ego has been released from the mind entirely. Go for God 100%.
Hear the wisdom of the present state of mind which transcends time and space! Living in the present moment is an experience. Through listening to and following guidance, Spirit leads you into an all-inclusive Presence that leaves no room for Newtonian, linear thinking. Your experience will expand into one of quantum simultaneity, from fragmented perception into pure Oneness!
The Presence of Spirit is absolutely uncompromising and absolutely practical. He reaches you right where you think you are in this world, and uses all symbols to lead you into the experience of abstraction.
David Hoffmeister talks about how to tune into, what he calls, “Central Casting”—the Guidance from the Holy Spirit—and let go of how you think your life should go. Just give your full “yes” to Spirit and come to see that you need do nothing, because He will do all things through you. You can simply drop into the lightness of joy and laughter and soar in the truth of who you are! Without a care! Forget about time and space, and realize that, by following His Guidance, you allow yourself to be truly loved.
Allow yourself to drop into the depth of this talk and see that the unbounded Presence of Love is everything. David Hoffmeister and Lisa Cairns talk about the laughable ways the human mind tries to make “something” out of every occurence in life and place meaning on it; it values certain experiences over others. And yet, you are Present Love and that is the only real occurance ever happening. Nothing more, and nothing less. Let your ‘self’ drop. Love is in every moment; you can stop the search. You are It.
