Projection is the attempt to get rid of something you do not want, to see it acted out in someone else. Projection is the source of blame. Unfortunately, by projecting something, you make it real in your awareness, thus keeping it. The deceived mind projects the entire cosmos, which is a game of lies. Linear time is a projection of shadow images. The Workbook of “A Course in Miracles” teaches how projection works so that you can loosen from those false images. The images offer nothing that you want. Your interacting with them shows you’ve had a psychotic break with Heaven. It is tiring to seek for love and not find it. You will never be content except in the “I am” presence that you really are.
All the teachings of Jesus could be boiled down to just two words: “Judge not.” If we could simply be in a state of complete acceptance and allowance, the idea of a “problem” would be impossible! When we are content with “what is,” we are no longer looking to “get” anything from the world, whether it be attention, money, fame, possessions, or even companionship. Problems only arise when we have expectations about what should be given to us or what should happen for us. But without judgment, everything of time and space is seen as without meaning and the Present Moment is recognized as the ONLY thing that is wanted.
You think that, in order to be happy, you have to make the right decisions among different options. But that is not true. As “A Course in Miracles” reminds us, all our options are actually the same: thoughts of the ego. They are of the past. Choosing among them is not the way to be happy; it just keeps you stuck. In this video, David Hoffmeister, who speaks from the Awakened Mind, shows you how to make the one real choice for lasting happiness. The ego made this world so that we would think there was choice where there is no choice. The present is not this perceptual moment where we’re all sitting around in a room. Everything perceived with the five senses is all the past.
David speaks with depth and humor on copyright lawsuits, non-dualism, debt, completion, the world, One Mind, judgment, denial, projection, daily practice, cause and effect, the ego, time, Krishnamurti parables, and forgiveness.
The belief system of the ego taints your mind, and its thoughts are not your real thoughts. They are a web of distortion that springs out of the idea that you could separate from your Creator. The ego arose from your desire for something more than everything. Jesus says in “A Course in Miracles” that truth will be returned to you by your desire. The power of prayer is everything; everything emanates from it. When your desire is unified your perception is unified. Miracles are your birthright but purification is necessary first.
There is a Jesus Christ “central casting” where everything gets handled. You can let go of control and relax. The Holy Spirit will give you what you need. You are safe; you can’t mess it up. Jesus Christ central casting is in charge. You are together with Jesus until the end of time, just looking back at what has already gone by, just imagining that you are making the journey again. You believe that there are still choices open, but this world is all over and done!
The word “having” is used very strangely on this planet, as a synonym for what you believe you possess. To the Spirit however, having is equated with being. What you have is what you are which is the Self as God created you. Therefore, you are in need of nothing. Love does not possess and Love is who we are. It is our identity, not something we possess, and this confusion is the central issue. Possessing involves “thing-ness” and a belief in parts. This belief in parts, and the possession of the parts, blocks the awareness of Love.
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.
In this interview with Lesley Kelly, David Hoffmeister speaks on the topics of guidance, trust, relationships, sexuality, people-pleasing, and inspiration.
The Holy Spirit sees only two orders of thought: love or a call for love. You as a person cannot make this distinction. Yet, this distinction is the gateway back to eternal life. Therefore, this important distinction is the Holy Spirit’s job to make for you when you surrender your will for His. This sends the mind into a state of humbleness where the prayer to the Holy Spirit is “show me.” Ultimately, we do not follow people, we follow Spirit. David Hoffmeister is a living example of the teachings in “A Course in Miracles.” For those who are feeling the call to Awaken, David Hoffmeister offers pure inspiration! “A Course in Miracles” is a pointer towards non-dual awareness, Oneness.
