When you get in touch with the divine Presence, you just watch the world without effort. It is so relaxing.
David Hoffmeister speaks in New York City about how the whole distorted world is hypothetical or situational or potential. Joy in the present is actual, a gateway to Reality—the Kingdom of Heaven within—and it is experienced through a choice or decision when the past is seen as over and gone.
Guidance can come in the form of feelings, intuitions, words, streams of thought, signs and symbols in the world like billboards and bumper stickers, opening ACIM as an oracle, other books, music playing in restaurants or on the car radio, dreams, journalling, art, and more! Gradually you link into a glorious flow that draws you inward. Synchronicities show that it’s all just reflections of thought. Take the limits off. Pay attention and stay open.
The Holy Spirit always meets you where you believe yourself to be, and so leads you out of the loop of projection. All lessons are for you. What is given, is given! You are always on the right track and always perfectly taken care of. Don’t worry, be happy, and let Awakening be done through you!
You don’t have to learn to accept specific upsetting situations. You are never upset for the reason you think. You have an underlying divine innocence that is invulnerable. So you look inside and clear away your beliefs that are covering that over. Loving relationships are undefined, guided, and collaborative. When you are at peace, all outcomes are equally acceptable.
Instead of focusing on the body, put your attention on joining, connecting. The ego-mind looks for problems to solve; the whole world is a mirror of this mind searching and exaggerating the problem instead of the solution (joining). A succession of personality identities will be revealed; even “teacher of God” or the “saint” are masks. We must keep unveiling until all is exposed and we have moved completely into the light. Always be authentic and guidance for the next step will be there.
The ego tries to project the error of separation from God out into the world of images, concretes, and specifics. Behavior, actions, and people are the focus. Through “A Course in Miracles,” Jesus trains us to see that there are no mistakes in behavior; the only mistake is the egoic wrong mind. Learning to be right-minded and choosing the correction is what the spiritual journey is all about.
