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!
Releasing Projection to Enter the Holy Instant – In this talk, David speaks about the topic of projection and addresses the basic cause and effect relationship in the mind. Love extends, and the ego projects. The process of forgiveness requires the exposure and release of the belief in external causation. And all magic involves a belief that form can be causative. In the end, spiritual awakening requires the release of all magical beliefs. When the level of fear is high, a mixture of magic and miracle may be helpful. Time and eternity can conflict until the belief in time is released.
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.
