How Can I Have Fun with Spiritual Awakening? – David Hoffmeister shares about the previous night’s movie, Yesterday, and reminds us about the Beatles’ influence on our mind and John Lennon’s extension of love through the music. David also shares his own journey with Jesus and A Course in Miracles. He emphasizes the importance of purpose and talks about how we are getting ready to move into a new phase and how to use the symbols for Awakening. David gives a beautiful context for the Living Miracles spiritual community and how it was founded, as well as how he received guidelines for the community in the form of “No people-pleasing and no private thoughts.”
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!
How Can I Experience the Present Goal of Joy? – David Hoffmeister closes this remarkable online retreat with answers to our deepest questions as he shares that the world is a big mirror of our state of mind. Seemingly the mind is full of past memory implants, and human beings think they have a life of their own as well as a time between birth and death, where they can choose whatever they want, like a great adventure, except that the ego has rigged the whole thing! The memory implants never happened. It’s a world of imagination, and for most people, it’s actually not a happy dream when they come here. This world is not set up by God! Whatever you want from the world, the world wants from you. But if we give our judgment to the Holy Spirit, the perception of the world will change. The needs you think you have in the world will be reflected by other people having needs from you, because those thoughts are still thoughts in your mind. When we stop judging the world, the world seems to stop judging us!
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.
Guidance—a Key Component of A Course in Miracles – Guidance is an essential aspect of A Course in Miracles. In fact, the purpose and practice of the book is to help us connect with our Internal Teacher, the Holy Spirit. The Course offers a methodology for experiencing the helpfulness of guidance in daily living, which will lead us gently onto awakening from this dream.
