David Hoffmeister A Course in Miracles inspired teacher, explores the rules for decision that Jesus offers. Use the simple practice that Jesus outlines in the course in order to experience peace and happiness. It can seem that you have many decisions to make each day; many questions that pop up in your daily experience. Jesus describes simple steps to take when you experience these moments. When you call on the experience for divine Love, the questions start to disappear!
David Hoffmeister shares the steps of Awakening by using movie references to “Being There” and “The Matrix.” Raj shares a story of being directed by Spirit and following instructions, and of a free postage day in New Zealand that allows him to publish the magazine he was guided to take to New Zealand.
David Hoffmeister talks about turning your life and relationships over to the Spirit and letting go of attachment, control, and past associations. This 52-Card Pickup metaphor has the Holy Spirit redealing the deck as witnesses to the new purpose are called forth and given to replace those of the old (ego) purpose that previously dealt the deck.
You see what you want to see; you perceive what you believe. The Holy Spirit can use these signs and symbols to give you inspiration along the way. The purpose of a treasure map is to find the treasure. ACIM is a road-map designed to take you past your thoughts and perceptions to the Kingdom of Heaven within. God knows not form. The point of “A Course in Miracles: is to find the truth; then you let go of “A Course in Miracles” because it is form. “The world I see holds nothing that I want. The only value this world has is that you pass it by.” (W-128) Revelation lifts you to Christ’s Vision that is prior to form. “Beyond this world there is a world I want,” (W-129) talks about the forgiven world, the happy dream.
Jesus teaches in ACIM that this cosmos is built like a prison for our mind. Therefore we must look closely at the shadows within to discover if they are true or untrue. Holy Spirit knows the illusion is not real, so he is the very best guide out of the prison, not the symbols themselves. Give them to the Holy Spirit and see the healing happen through them.
Guidance can come in the form of feelings, intuitions, words, streams of thought, signs and symbols in the world like billboards and bumper stickers, opening ACIM as an oracle, other books, music playing in restaurants or on the car radio, dreams, journalling, art, and more! Gradually you link into a glorious flow that draws you inward. Synchronicities show that it’s all just reflections of thought. Take the limits off. Pay attention and stay open.
