In My Defenselessness My Safety Lies – In this Q&A session, David Hoffmeister addresses questions such as “How can we go through the experience of the death of a loved one with more peace and less pain?” “How do I dominate the ego?” and “How can I break out of ego confusion?” The gathering also includes a discussion on releasing the ego’s sense of protecting and protectionism. Protecting is a block to clarity and peace of mind.
Get ready for an “A Course in Miracles” straight talk from David Hoffmeister, a heart-to-heart communication about the core of true letting-go. You are being called back home to God. There is no need for delay, compromise, or distraction of any kind. Accept this loving gift from the Spirit now and let everything else pass you by.
David explains that past and future are ego constructs, defense mechanisms meant to maintain linear perception and illusion. The new way to perceive, which leads to awakening, is through recognizing the simultaneous nature of time. Unified time = Purpose.
David shines light on our limited ideas around “life” and “death.” Our belief in when we die reflects our deep belief that we are bodies “living” in a world of space and time. As we release these false concepts we can laugh at the idea of death and know ourselves as the eternal, living Christ. Other themes include: trust, guidance, reincarnation and living in divine providence.
The sleeping mind is addicted to time. The ego uses time to keep you stuck, but the Holy Spirit works with this belief to take the mind out of time and into eternity. The joyride starts when you allow the Holy Spirit to use you. Heart-opening experiences come from following the steps that are given. The symbols of this world are neutral. The Holy Spirit uses them to convince you that there is a Presence with you, just loving you; a memory of your Self. The Holy Spirit uses the concept of community for the purpose of practicing forgiveness. We are mesmerized by the ego’s world, and community can be used as a symbol of your willingness to face the intensity of this mesmerism. You need never be discouraged that this unwinding takes time, for “Time is your friend, if you leave it to the Holy Spirit to use,” (T-15.I.15:1) and we hold each other’s hands as we walk through the darkness to the light.
