Mastery through Love – David hosts a powerful session, with Q&A, exploring the theme of “mastery through love” (T-2.VII.4:4) and asking the question: if this world is a distraction device, how do we think we could ever understand anything?
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.
How can I practice being truly helpful? Often in this world you might find yourself wanting to be helpful and then feeling conflicted, wondering: “How did this happen? How did I get in so much conflict? I was trying to help.” Let Spirit show you the difference between false and true empathy. The more you join with the Holy Spirit on this journey and practice true empathy, the more you experience that the fears in your mind simply melt away.
This world is a distraction that was made to keep you mindless. As you start to pull away from these distractions it will seem that your life gets more tumultuous. The top tier of your self-concept, or “face of innocence,” (T-31.V.2:6) was made to prevent you from looking upon a self that you believe is draped with sin. As you join with your mighty companions and have the willingness and courage to look at this dark and hidden self, you approach what is underneath and what you are in truth: pure blazing light!
What is truly helpful? What can you really give? An unhealed healer is trying to give what he has not received. The alertness of the ego to the errors of other egos is not the kind of vigilance the Holy Spirit would have you maintain. The mind that perceives a problem in the world outside itself is in need of healing. The sole function of a teacher of God is to accept the Atonement for himself. The healed mind thus can share the healed perception and Christ’s Vision.
