What would happen to future goals and ambitions if you realized that the future is actually the past? As “A Course in Miracles” teaches, “This world was over long ago.” (T-28.I.1:6) When psychics read the future, they are actually reading the past because the future is past as well. As long as the mind is holding on to linear time, the prayer of the heart cannot be completely answered. But when we realize that the peace of God is all we want, all future desires are washed away, leaving the mind perfectly content in the present moment!

David Hoffmeister shares on “tuning in” and listening to the Holy Spirit and Jesus, and shares examples from his own life. Listening to the Holy Spirit rather than the ego takes a lot of discernment. On the most basic level, it is asking yourself, “How do I feel?” The deeper you go into miracle-working, the more you start to see there is, in truth, no difference between major and minor decisions. “A Course in Miracles” is a tool to use to help the mind tune into inner guidance from the Holy Spirit.

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.

You cannot wake yourself, but you can allow yourself to be spiritually awakened. Resign now as your own teacher and call for Spirit’s help. Be “taught through,” by demonstrating a forgiving attitude. Desire the peace of mind that you deserve. You may encounter ego backlash. Don’t analyze the darkness; say “oops” and hand it over to the Holy Spirit.
Stress and Worry 10–30 mins, A Course in Miracles, Attitude, Awareness, Beliefs and Concepts, Detachment, Guilt, Identity Confusion, Jesus, Judgments, Prayer, True Innocence, True Peace
As you watch your thoughts and judgments, you can feel small. It is freeing to realize that you are not the thinker of those thoughts. This realization frees you from identification with your thoughts. Your mind is full of impostor thoughts trying to convince you that you are not really you. Your real thoughts are those you think with God.

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.
Relationships 5–10 mins, Addictions, Attentiveness, Bringing Illusions to Truth, Dark and Intense Emotions, Distractions, Gentleness, Guidance, Guilt, Healing, Inspiration, Movie-Watching, Purpose, Sex and Sexuality, Symbols, True Forgiveness
Everything can be seen in a different way. Everything can be reinterpreted. Even distractions? Yes, even distractions! Things that seem to be distractions when used by the ego can be turned around in the mind. Give distractions to the Spirit. The Spirit can use these distractions for your own Awakening.
Everything you seem to see in form is a symbol in the dream. David Hoffmeister discusses specifics: smoking, drinking, movies, music. The ego can use a symbol like a movie or a cigarette to divert the attention of your mind. These symbols are not cause for guilt or self-criticism. They are simply symbols; reinterpreted they are seen as calls for Love.
Abandonment 5–10 mins, Avoidance, Dark and Intense Emotions, Denial and Repression, Expressing, Face of Innocence, Fear, Guilt, Private Thoughts, Separation, Unconsciousness
The belief that you could separate from Source and accomplish insanity is the “tiny mad idea” that Jesus talks about in “A Course in Miracles.” The mind, in reality, cannot accomplish this. The belief that you could separate from Source is a horrific idea. It’s mad. It’s insane! The belief that you are a separate consciousness takes a lot of active denying, pushing out, and repressing because it is so intolerable to your mind. Your natural state is unified, peaceful, and loving.
Relationships 10–30 mins, Beliefs and Concepts, Career and Work, Expectations, Family, Gratitude, Grievances, Guilt, Healing, Love, Possession and Ownership, Special Relationship, True Innocence
It is easy to love and it is hard to hate. Explore this ACIM healing reminder: Love is your resting state, while hate takes effort. You have to actually judge, which is not in your nature, in order to hate. Love is natural. It is who you are. Therefore, all situations can only have one outcome: an experience of love. This is why getting married or breaking up is the same thing: a call for love. It is simply a time for healing for everyone involved. It is natural to love in all instances. It’s hard for you to hate or even have a grievance. So you might as well surrender the mind to God by giving up silly human identities.
Relationships < 5 mins, Feelings of Lack, Grievances, Guilt, Personality-Self, Projection, Roles, Sex and Sexuality, Special Relationship
David Hoffmeister explains the ego’s purpose for dating and relationships as spoken about in “A Course in Miracles.” The ego has needs and wants, expects to get something, and is selective in what it presents.
