Living Is Giving – With the focus on “I am under no laws but God’s,” (W-76) David shares in this talk that living is giving, and this aligns with the law of love. How better to demonstrate “I am still as God created me” (W-rVI.In.3:5) than to know “I am under no laws but God’s.” I am empowered by miracles, which light the way in a darkened world. I do not create myself, for God is my Source and Creator. As an innocent child of God, I am not at the mercy of the world. The world is not outside my mind, and I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt. The world is nothing more than a reflection of my mind. Today I would think only the thoughts of Love that come from God.
What Is the Forgiven World? – In this online retreat, David shares that the forgiven world is being in the Presence of God’s Love, to be in the present moment. Imagine how happy you would be if you didn’t perceive any error. No matter what anybody said or did, you would still be in the divine flow. You would have no need to correct anybody, no need to fix anybody. You would have no need to change any person, place, or circumstance. You would have no need to please anybody either. To be in that experience, we have to be with the Spirit, and when we open our hearts to that vision, we can truly feel that everything works together for good.
What Does It Mean to Rest in God? – In this online retreat experience, David will lead us through some of the key topics: mighty companions, trust, preferences, the definition of sin, resting in God and forgiving the monkey mind.
David works with a specific call for love during this session as an inroad to healing and inner peace. Using the levels of mind diagram, he uses the presenting problem as a starting point for going inward to the light of the Holy Spirit. Under all our seeming fears in this world, what we are really afraid of is the light. Other themes in this talk include family issues, the deep belief in sacrifice, and the two plans of forgiveness: the ego’s and the Holy Spirit’s.
David Hoffmeister tells us that the clever one, or ego, which he refers to as an ingenious puff of nothingness, created a world to distract us from who we really are, and can be overcome simply by listening to and following the Holy Spirit.
