Trust, Follow, Be Taken Care Of – Join David Hoffmeister as he looks at the importance of trust and following guidance as a means to the end. Other themes include fear of hurting other people’s feelings, control, releasing family people-pleasing, and releasing false responsibilities to give way for our true responsibility—our state of mind. Near the end of the session, everyone listened to the song “You raise me up,” and tears of concern and release were felt. Laughter erupted and the Spirit poured through with deep healing and bursting, cascading laughter.
Love Is Reached through Forgiveness – In a life fully devoted to God, the miracle is always present. David and friends share on having no “life” of their own and experiencing that everything is given by the Spirit moment by moment. Examples are offered about living a life without compromise.
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.
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!
