Offer Your Career to the Holy Spirit – In this talk, David Hoffmeister looks at career, money, and reciprocity. Money is neutral to the Holy Spirit, but to the ego, it is full of meaning. Because the ego is the belief in lack, and money is a symbol that it made up to solve the lack. In A Course in Miracles, Jesus is getting us to question where we believe our safety is and where we believe our sustenance comes from. Are you willing to trust Jesus when he says, “If you will give love away, if you will extend love, everything will be taken care of for you.” Many examples and parables are given.
How to Speed up Spiritual Awakening – David Hoffmeister shares practical experiences of living focused and purposeful lives of total devotion to the Spirit. He answers questions about the ego, regarding forgiveness, discerning the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the experience of listening to and following Jesus, and choosing in mind instead of attempting to manifest in form and create the future. The talk was a call to be clear on the purpose that leads to true freedom and awakening from the dream of the world.
A Course in Miracles is a direct pathway back to God that teaches us how to forgive. The goal of ACIM is not about making a better life in the world, but about letting the world as we perceive it fall apart. This necessarily involves letting go of control, and as we pray to be shown the world through the light of the Holy Spirit, it becomes easier and easier. Peace becomes our natural experience. We experience miracles. And we become peaceful demonstrations of the love of Christ.
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.
