You cannot BUT be at the right place at the right time. If you could always remember this, there would never be the experience of stress. Like the song shared in this video says, “be gentle with yourself.” We often beat ourselves up for not being “as spiritual as we should be,” but to the Spirit, we are Perfect as our Christ Self. The dream character we believe ourselves to be is not real and can have no effect on our God-created Self. As “A Course in Miracles” says, “You are at home in God, dreaming of exile but perfectly capable of awakening to reality.” (T-10.I.2:1) Awareness of dreaming brings a state of pure contentment, for illusions are recognized AS illusions.
David Hoffmeister shares this idea along with a song from Donna Marie Cary: “If you knew who walks beside you along the way fear would be impossible.” There are many ways the Holy Spirit reaches a willing mind: songs, movies, books, billboards, bumper stickers, etc.

You can join in the miracle with every character you perceive in your life. Everything is mind; your own consciousness. It’s just like if this was a movie and it was all for you. As you begin to really question who you are, your self-doubt thoughts are reflected in the world. Notice where you have fear arise and notice the beliefs you are holding. Once you see that it is all the same, that it is one big skit in your mind, joy and playfulness come in. All the characters are reflections of your mind. It’s all one mind. Call on the miracle. Accept the all-inclusive power of your mind.
Don’t go into irritation over a noise. Merge with the miracle. It is all interpretation. Give yourself over to unified awareness. Everything is an opportunity. You can judge or go into the glory. God is in everything because God is in my mind. Let your mind be lifted up. All things are the same in unified awareness.
Find inspiration! There are many different ways of expression, many different ways to extend. Tap into the question, “where is my glee? My joy?” Let these questions carry you down the runway towards lift-off. Know that Spirit will use everything to take you home, even your preferences. Let Spirit use your unique likes and dislikes in a way that will lift you up beyond all identification with the ego. You don’t have to hide your ego preferences.
Awareness of dreaming is your function! Through “A Course in Miracles,” Jesus is teaching a state of mind: awareness of dreaming. In this state of mind, you look on the dream as a dream without needing to fix or improve it. You are aware that a plane crash into the ocean is the same as a walk in California on a sunny day; a dream is a dream is a dream. There is no difference. This state of mind doesn’t even feel stuck in the dream! It is more like a lucid dream. This is a dream!
In this video, David Hoffmeister talks about how to live a life from inspiration. Begin to accept the Spirit’s correction in your everyday life. The ego’s complex script was spun out, projected in an instant. The Spirit corrected this unholy instant, or separation, simultaneously. You accept healing by keeping the purpose of forgiveness in mind. As you move through the day, the way to accept the holy instant is to ask, “What is it for?” What is the purpose motivating you? Find the inspiration within and live from that.
