How to Let Go of Judgment – How do we make this shift of mind from following the ego and aligning with all its judgments to having a clear Christ-like mind? The Holy Spirit’s practical, moment to moment guidance is the answer. Each time we follow the Spirit’s specific directions, it helps to wash away our separate sense of self, and our lives begin to take on an ease and a flow. You start to feel empowered and more and more like you are not in the world. Other themes in this talk include: Awakening and taking responsibility for our state of mind.
This talk delves into the stillness and joy of mysticism. We are reminded that unlike what we may have been taught, we have just one responsibility and that is to simply be happy. As our minds let go of other worldly responsibilities and concerns, we discover that everything has been provided for our happiness with no exceptions.
“A Course in Miracles” is about making your mind ready for revelation which comes from Spirit to Spirit. Everything in this world aims at the experience that the past is over and can touch you not. This world is only an experience of your mind, and is not apart from it. The straight and narrow path is non-judgment. Let go into the experience that all form is an image in the mind. If you see magnificence in the world you’re simply coming into the experience of your own magnificence. History and studying this world is really much ado about nothing and your daily experience can always be of happiness, joy, and welcoming. “The holiest spot on earth is where an ancient hatred has become a present love.” T-26.IX.6:1 Prepare for the undoing of what never was; take it easy and learn to laugh. In the end it takes Jesus to reveal the meaning of forgiveness and the real world to you and there is nothing you must do.
Jesus knows the way to truth beyond the endless maze of roles, concepts, and beliefs that we have accumulated in this world. Transcending fear requires listening to and following guidance. David Hoffmeister shares how Jesus used the mechanism of travel to undo the belief in ego preferences and attachments, and thus to undo fear. Family roles and responsibilities are often a concern as we start to embark on the path back to truth. Jesus works with us gently to unwind the mind. David’s sharing on this topic is especially helpful for anyone who feels the confusion of responsibility to both family and the spiritual journey.
A Course in Miracles teaches: “You have but two emotions, love and fear.” T-13.V.1 Ultimately the only thing we are afraid of, is Love. The ego would have you believe that there are other, specific things in the world to fear, because it wants to protect itself from being exposed to the light of truth: the things it wants you to fear are actually just distractions to keep you from the awareness of your desire for God. Under the Spirit’s Guidance, miracles occur absolutely involuntarily; every person, every place, and every situation will be used for the healing of your mind.
