There are no private thoughts. Any thoughts that you believe are private are not real. They are meaningless. ACIM daily lessons ask you to practice this early on in your training with lesson eight, “my mind is preoccupied with past thoughts,” and ten, “my thoughts do not mean anything.” The first step in healing is to let all of the emotions up, whether you label them bad or good. Talk about them. Imagine how much faster your relationships would heal if you were open to sharing your emotions. It’s the fastest way to undo the egoic people-pleasing pattern!

In this video, David Hoffmeister gives us an invitation into the mystical experience. Your true responsibility is not to judge anything that is happening in form. We learn to value presence and devotion rather than behavior. We want to live our lives with such devotion that we let all concerns of this world fade away. The ego’s identity depends on doing. It would be gone completely if there was no doer, and that’s exactly what happens. You remain as God created you. That’s the key.

In this video, David Hoffmeister talks about sexuality and hunger. In Heaven, in Oneness, there are no needs. But in the world, sexuality and hunger appear to be basic human needs. There can seem to be problems sexual or food cravings. They are on the continuum of preferences, and preferences are judgments. The trick is that the ego makes hierarchies of these illusions even though they are really all the same. The Holy Spirit knows there are ego preferences. When you give yourself over to Him, He will use your preferences to unwind them all.

“A Course in Miracles” is taking us to God dependency. Person-based dependency is stressful and the scarcity principal is played out whether we are protecting wealth or trying to get it. Divine providence can only give. When we go deeper into divine providence, we transcend reciprocity entirely. There will only be peace of mind when we are dependent on God.
