David Hoffmeister has a revealing conversation with two former Chief Executive Officers who left their careers to devote their lives to God. CEOs cannot become enlightened. Holding any role as an identity—mother, father, butcher, baker—keeps you in illusion. You can’t spiritualize a business. You can’t bring the truth to the illusion; you must bring the illusion to the truth.
Mystical euphoria is sometimes followed by a disorienting, even shattering, “re-entry.” With mind training practice a peaceful state is progressively maintained. Then experiences that were formerly experienced as fearful are given new meaning and experienced as fun.
Rules for Decision
David Hoffmeister A Course in Miracles inspired teacher, explores the rules for decision that Jesus offers. Use the simple practice that Jesus outlines in the course in order to experience peace and happiness. It can seem that you have many decisions to make each day; many questions that pop up in your daily experience. Jesus describes simple steps to take when you experience these moments. When you call on the experience for divine Love, the questions start to disappear!
Dismantle and Be Held
God did not create you to strive to be a better self. That is a defense against “Be still and know that I am God.” (T-4.in.2:2) Let go of the images and open to love and light. There is no sacrifice in this, only the discovery of Self. You may experience disorientation; don’t try to figure it out; surrender. Be held by a mighty companion. Spirit will guide you.
