What Is Our True Function? – David Hoffmeister takes us on a joyful deep dive into the question of “What is our true function?” And in order for us to raise our awareness to be one with God, we need a lot of help. Jesus is a symbol of that help. Jesus completed his part and accepted the Atonement for himself. He is the first miracle, the last miracle, and all the miracles in-between. Therefore, it’s good for us to call on him and trust that he’s got us covered in the end, despite what we think of ourselves right now. David also provides answers to how to empty the mind and what true helpfulness is.
How Can I Have Fun with Spiritual Awakening? – David Hoffmeister shares about the previous night’s movie, Yesterday, and reminds us about the Beatles’ influence on our mind and John Lennon’s extension of love through the music. David also shares his own journey with Jesus and A Course in Miracles. He emphasizes the importance of purpose and talks about how we are getting ready to move into a new phase and how to use the symbols for Awakening. David gives a beautiful context for the Living Miracles spiritual community and how it was founded, as well as how he received guidelines for the community in the form of “No people-pleasing and no private thoughts.”
Why Release Private Thoughts? – The Living Miracles community guidelines emphasize the importance of not holding on to private thoughts. We are not the thinker of the thoughts. When private thoughts are protected, the identification of being the thinker of the thoughts is also protected. By expressing private thoughts as guided, we are supporting each other in letting go of the false identification and coming to an awareness of truth.
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.
