Why Is It Impossible to Change Eternal Love? – When Jesus tells us in the Course that we have no private thoughts, he is basically saying that it’s impossible to think apart from our Source. If we are a creation of God, we automatically think like God. That means our real thoughts are loving thoughts. And there is no guilt or fear or pain or shame that comes from loving thoughts. Our willingness to release these false, make-believe thoughts and be fully transparent will catapult us into an experience of Oneness, Eternal Love, which is our true inheritance.
What Does “The Way Is Narrow” Mean? – David invites us to go beyond all temptations, delays, and distractions. Stay the course and practice the narrow focus of forgiveness that dissolves specialness, for freedom of mind is the only thing worthy of your effort now.
Demystifying Sexual Relationships – In this talk, David responds to a number of questions around sexual relationship issues. As is the case with any of the issues we face in this world, we are never upset for the reason that we think. The problem is never external. Jesus is encouraging us to go inside and look honestly at our thoughts, which is the cause of all of our upsets. This talk also explores the fear of love and clarifies the difference between extending genuine help and people-pleasing.
Holy Spirit’s Function Is Exchanging Concepts – David invites us to see that even though the ego has created the cosmos and everything in it, the Holy Spirit can use all this as symbols for His purpose. Even our interpersonal relationships can—if we have the purpose of forgiveness at the forefront—be used to come back to that still place of holiness in our mind.
How Can I Forgive Illusions and Wake Up from the Dream? – David Hoffmeister reminds us that we are not trying to improve ourselves or make the world a better place. Who we are is already perfect and doesn’t need improvement. He also shares that the reason why we do not experience the limitlessness and freedom we yearn for is because we have taken on a very false sense of personal responsibility. Constant maintenance of a personal body, a family, a community, or the world is a false responsibility that stems from being deeply wound into a personal self-concept that keeps us compromising on a daily basis and ties us to a world of form. We are not responsible for anything in time and space. Our only responsibility is to answer the Call for God and accept the Atonement; Jesus will take care of everything else!
