When we free our minds up from being worried about cause in the world and trying to solve our seeming problems in form, our lives become like a fairy tale. The energy that was being used on worry is now available for focusing on the homing beacon, that which is calling us home. This state is very exciting.

David Hoffmeister talks about the second part of his book, “Unwind Your Mind Back to God.” Unlearning the world is unlearning the concepts of the world: comfort, security, possessions, and convenience. Once we seek not to change the world, but rather to change our minds about the world, there is a flow, you are the flow. With Spirit, everything is helpful. Spirit is performing a major convincing job.

The body’s eyes do not see. The first 10 lessons of “A Course in Miracles” lay out this idea very clearly and springboard into the grandaddy of all ideas, “God is in everything I see because God is in my mind.” (W-29) Of course, God isn’t in the table as I see it. Yet the practical element, while I still believe I see through the body’s eyes, is seeing the purpose the table holds along with all the universe: to know I am one with Source. The Holy Spirit equalizes all the images of the world and shows me their sameness so I can be steady and at peace. When I see differences, I am blind. Coming into spiritual vision, I start to see sameness and my mind begins to loosen from the inability to judge. The result is truly peace.

Spirituality is not about high ideals. You want an actual experience of peace and that is extremely practical. The Spirit meets you where you believe you are. Love waits on welcome, not on time. How welcoming are you to Spirit’s guidance? When you start to clear your mind of all your fears, doubts, and dualistic thinking, and you need an answer, it will come through you like a download from the Spirit. But you have to follow the guidance. You have to allow yourself to be unwound by the Spirit out of the matrix. Can you see how practical that is? You are being taught to start opening to the Spirit’s guidance to unwind your mind back to Oneness.
“Who would defend himself unless he thought he were attacked, that the attack were real, and that his own defense could save himself? And herein lies the folly of defense; it gives illusions full reality, and then attempts to handle them as real. It adds illusions to illusions, thus making correction doubly difficult. And it is this you do when you attempt to plan the future, activate the past, or organize the present as you wish.” (W-135.1) The destination is now; the means are given simultaneously with the end. Like a musician or an athlete in the flow of the moment, the experience is the end. The Holy Spirit will guide you in the present where you lose the sense of a personal self. Join in stillness and listen for your next steps. The Holy Spirit will use your skills.

How did Jesus not suffer? To the ego, it looked as if Jesus was suffering on the cross with nails in his hands and feet. Why do we see this event as suffering? Because the ego made up suffering. And, when we see suffering, we are looking with the ego. It made up the appearance of the body, the nails, and the cross. It made up an innocent lamb and the judgment cast upon it. Yet these are all mere concepts, mere duality. The mind that has been healed of all concepts rests in a freed perspective, or state of Christ.

The Holy Spirit is here to undo the faulty perception of the world and give you a new way to look at the world. When you start to follow your inner calling, you start to draw forth witnesses to the love inside of you. You will have a new purpose that will lead you to happiness. You are pulling your mind away from the ego. The goal of the Spirit is Awakening and the goal of the ego is sleep. These two goals don’t have any meeting point. You can’t serve two masters. All you are called to do is to follow your calling.

Everything that you see in this world is a motion picture of our mind. If you believe you are alive on this planet, you’re living in a dream. Everything you see in this world is part of the matrix, the dream. If we want to know the truth about ourselves, we need to go within. Like Neo in the movie, “The Matrix,” we sense that something is not quite right with the world and we want to know the truth.

ACIM reminds us that everything in the world is an idea and they are all unreal. Because they are all equally unreal, there are no conflicting ideas. Yet there is an actual real idea behind them, called Christ. You are an idea of the Mind of God. Christ lives forever in the Mind of God and has not left the Source. That is what you are waking up to. That is where all this is going to: an endless mind being an idea in the Mind of God. That is Oneness. Any time your mind goes into any kind of upset, it indicates that there is something to forgive.
