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.
“You are not guiltless in time, but in eternity.” Time must be released to experience the innocence of Spirit. Guidance is the Holy Spirit’s use of judgment to free the mind of ego and time. David Hoffmeister answers a question from the audience about the meaning of “The script is written”: See that you can’t change the past. Bring your illusions to truth and face the unconscious mind so you can come into true forgiveness.
The Holy Spirit uses time to teach us that there is no time. This is a real experience that can only be pointed to in the present moment. Will you jump aboard?
The unwinding from the illusion is all part of the Holy Spirit’s plan for Awakening. David Hoffmeister talks about the desire to go Home and the journey to Enlightenment. Just when we get comfortable in the world, the rug will get pulled out from under your feet and it’ll feel like you’re falling. Do not be discouraged. This is just a transition into a new way of being that is very stable and very strong. You have to learn to trust in the falling and know that you are in the hands of the Spirit.
The journey Home through “A Course in Miracles” is about seeing everything as your own lesson and being totally uncompromising with that. As you heal perception you begin to experience a peaceful mind. Learn of the true meaning of cause and effect as the Spirit would teach it; that problems in the world have no cause outside of mind, and are simply attempts to deviate your mind away from realizing your own perfection. You are the real Effect (the Son) of the one Cause (God).
