Fling seeds of love and joy everywhere, without looking back. You have an unlimited supply of miracles. Giving and receiving are the same. Miracles transcend the laws of the world. God’s Will for you is perfect happiness.
Contentment and Happiness
Trust 10–30 mins, Atonement, Contentment, Contentment and Happiness, Desire, Feelings of Lack, Idols, Inner Peace, Purpose
When you decide upon the form of what you want, you loose the understanding of its purpose. Happiness does not come from wanting. Wanting and desiring comes from lack. In a state of perfect Oneness, there are no wants or desires because it is perfect fulfillment.
Stress and Worry 10–30 mins, Acceptance, Authority Problem, Christ-Identity, Contentment and Happiness, Control, Creation and Extension, Forgiven World, Grace, Holy Spirit, Letting Go, Rituals, Spontaneity, Stress, True Freedom, True Peace, Trust
We want to experience peace. We want to reduce stress and worry in our lives. But how? In this clip, David Hoffmeister shares on letting go of the illusion of control and sinking into divine Grace. The ego seeks to demonstrate that it is the author of itself by working, planning, and controlling as many “personal” aspects of life as possible. But doing each “must” and “have to” is highly stressful. The alternative to attempting to control things is to relax into divine Grace.
Health and Sickness 10–30 mins, Atonement, Contentment and Happiness, Listen and Follow, Perception, Perceptual Problem, Sickness
There is a belief that some people have “disabilities” and are lacking. We are not seeing with spiritual vision. This is a perceptual problem. Everyone who comes to this world is schizophrenic in that they listen to multiple voices in their minds. The sleeping mind is trying to listen to both spirit and to the ego—sickness itself. Psychosis is a break from reality, and everyone who believes in this world is psychotic because Reality has nothing to do with this place. We are pure Oneness.
Money < 5 mins, Contentment and Happiness, Desire, Illusion vs Reality, Manifesting, Presence, True Joy
Manifesting is wanting more of form, more illusion, more of the past. Spirit is not a “manifester.” You do not have the power to manifest. Jesus in “A Course in Miracles” says, “Strictly speaking this is impossible.” (T-8.VIII.7:2)
Money < 5 mins, Body Issues, Contentment and Happiness, Control, People-Pleasing, Planning, Possession and Ownership, Private Thoughts, Sex and Sexuality, Shame, Specialness
What is success? You may have specific ideas about what success would look like in your life. Is it built on a concept like the “American Dream,” or some other artificial standard? These societal ideas about the “success” are like a cosmic fig leaf, covering over the separation and belief in guilt and shame. There is no need to cover anything up. There is nothing to hide.
Addictions 10–30 mins, Beliefs and Concepts, Competition, Contentment and Happiness, Dismantling, Duality, Inspiration, Memory, Morality, Oneness, Pleasure, Romance, Time and Space
The “people” concept fades pretty quickly. We laugh at the people/duality/linear time game because deep down we know it’s not real. Let it be dismantled. All memories are equally false. Let inspiration lead you.
Addictions < 5 mins, Alignment with Spirit, Cause and Effect, Consistent Experience, Contentment and Happiness, Possession and Ownership, Purpose, True Joy
Worldly joy comes and worldly joy goes. The Holy Spirit utilizes all things the dreaming mind has made, including emotion. Nevertheless, the Holy Spirit knows these states and emotions are not the complete peace of God, and so He reminds us not to get caught in the trap of chasing niceties. They will be given when needed and go again when their usefulness is complete.
Family Conflict 10–30 mins, Beliefs and Concepts, Contentment and Happiness, Humility, Hypotheticals, Prayer, Pride
Would you rather be right or happy? If you are not happy, what do you see as the problem? Money, family, job, health … or is the complex list of issues just a distraction device? As you become aware of where the problem is, you can move towards the solution instead of continuing with the distractions. ACIM daily lessons 79 and 80 direct the mind towards this awareness. Lesson 79 gives you the thought: “Let me recognize the problem so it can be solved.” (W-79) Lesson 80 moves into: “Let me recognize my problems have been solved.” (W-80)
Suicide 5–10 mins, Accepting Correction, Contentment and Happiness, Death, Fear, Guilt, Mystical Experiences, Projection, Purpose, Separation, True Forgiveness
The purpose of the ego is death. It has no good aspects, no source and no healing purpose. Unplug from it. The world is a projection of guilt, hatred, and anger. Decide that you want to heal, and Spirit will help you see differently. Love has the power to reinterpret everything you perceive! This world is error. The Correction, Atonement, is that the separation never happened. An experience of pure love will come that will end your doubting. This is the reason for happiness. You are not responsible for the error, but only for accepting the correction. Stop projecting the error onto the world; that’s the way you keep it. On the other hand, when you forgive it, you free yourself and the world.
