What Is Forgiveness According to ACIM? – David transmits the presence of forgiveness and clarifies that it offers everything now. Process collapses in experience, and the Holy Spirit/Jesus is the “how.” The focus is solely on forgiveness, and not attempting to use past learning to solve projected problems of the body and world. Enlightenment is a state of mind, and persons or masks are never enlightened. The mask only seemed to cover over the light of Heaven and the Christ.
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.
Seek within and Find Everything You Truly Desire – When aligning with the ego’s thought system, we are forever chasing future happiness and are never satisfied with our current situation. As we turn our lives over to the Spirit, we discover that everything we ever sought outside of ourselves is within: true freedom, happiness, and everlasting peace. Other topics in this talk include: discerning between the ego and the Holy Spirit, family relationships, letting go of our attempts to control the world of form and accepting that the only thing we can control is our state of mind.
Different Spiritual Pathways, One Helpful Belief – David demonstrates and teaches on the idea that to the healed mind, everything in the world of form is the same. And all beliefs are the same in that they are equally meaningless, all except forgiveness. This is the one helpful belief! So to such a mind that has accepted forgiveness, it makes no difference who he is with; a lightness and joy is felt and extended to all. Other topics in this talk include the bottom-up versus the top-down approach to awakening, talking about healing versus living the experience, and the difficulties that arise when judgments are projected and exceptions are made in regard to transferring the training. Enjoy!
All the emotions are being generated by clinging to a false self, by trying to protect a false identity. The way out is to pay close attention and notice when the contraction would come up. This way you can start seeing things in a helpful perspective. And you will see that every emotion relates to an identity attachment. This is a journey of emptying the mind, for it requires questioning every value that you hold. Not one can be kept hidden, or it will obscure your learning. Practicing this will lead towards the experience of consistent joy and peace of mind.
