The Illusion of Time – David Hoffmeister addresses the illusion of time in this dynamic talk, using the bottom-up approach. David starts with beliefs related to the body on the surface and works down to the core belief in time, which is the bedrock for all the ideas on the surface of human existence.
What Is the Art of Listening? – In this opening session, David guides us on how to hand over the strings of the puppet, how to pray to wake up, and the art of inner listening! He also talks about how miracles collapse time and how decisions and choices are all in the mind.
How Can I End the Cycle of Guilt and Attack? – David shares in this online retreat when you realize that “The script is written” (W-158.4:3) and there is no choice in form, you realize that you can only decide between the ego’s purpose of death or the Holy Spirit’s purpose of forgiveness, and realizing that you are the dreamer of the dream and not the dream figure. “Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.” T-21.In.1:7 When we join with the Holy Spirit in our mind, we slowly loosen our attachment to the images of the world, the roles we play, and the hooks we thought we were hung up on. The key is this moment. The key is to want the holy instant more than anything else.
Who experienced the separation, and who and how and when was it corrected? If all is God and all is Love, what went wrong? Basic questions about truth, and what is real and what is illusion? David Hoffmeister addresses the seeming belief that we are separate from God, and answers the question, “How did the impossible happen?” using principles from A Course in Miracles and Jesus’ teachings.
David Hoffmeister explains what is meant by the Bible, when it tells us, “Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the Earth.” (Matthew 5:5) We are not to attempt to teach what we believe by confronting, converting, or changing anybody around us; rather, we are to allow the shift in awareness, and step into that experience of the miracle ourselves.
