Ego defenses minimize guilt without letting it go. People-pleasing is diluted guilt. There is another way. Follow guidance to authentically say “yes” and “no” from your heart, from your joy. Let Spirit speak through you. Spiritual companions will come to you.
Stop playing the guilt game as there is never any need for regrets! Regret is thought’s futile attempt to alter the past. People around us reflect back to us what we believe. When we let go, forgive, the whole world lights up and joy and innocence become our experience.
There is no inside/outside and in the end, there is no projection. Projection is the idea of trying to get rid of something while still keeping it. The Holy Spirit uses contrast experiences to lead us to the recognition that we want nothing but Love. Through the purification process we begin to see everything as a miracle.
“A Course in Miracles” is a pathway to God through relationships. In this session, David Hoffmeister shares on giving over relationships to the Holy Spirit. When you allow relationships to be used for the Holy Spirit’s purpose of healing the mind, it can be a very intense pathway to God as the mirroring can seem so heightened. What is getting exposed is the deep root of the belief in sacrifice and loss. Yet if you decide to learn it (a sustained and committed relationship for complete forgiveness/Atonement), the perfect lesson stands before you and can be learned. This is the fast track to Awakening as everything gets flushed up for the healing.
To know thyself as an eternal being, you must practice forgiveness. This video follows a discussion on the purpose of marriage. David Hoffmeister goes into depth on the discipline of practicing forgiveness. David shares that the Holy Spirit has given you all of the forms in your classroom and now you must decide to use them for the purpose of going beyond this world. Is a spouse the form you’ve been given? Let this form take you into the awareness of your eternal self.
David Hoffmeister describes the way to forgive relationships by seeing the value that people offer as mirrors of unconscious beliefs. Through relationships and spiritual community you recognize the “fast track” to enlightenment. The ego is undone when it no longer holds any value or attraction, and forgiveness lights the way.
How do we become spiritually strong? David Hoffmeister shares on this topic. To grow implies a process, and a process seems to witness that we are not already that! Non-dual/ACIM teachings point to an experience of our true Identity. While we are identified with weakness and fear it is impossible to have the awareness of our spiritual strength. As the mind opens up to its true Identity, the “how to” is given. Everything that you perceive in this world, without exception, is a motion picture of your mind.
David Hoffmeister shares this idea along with a song from Donna Marie Cary: “If you knew who walks beside you along the way fear would be impossible.” There are many ways the Holy Spirit reaches a willing mind: songs, movies, books, billboards, bumper stickers, etc.

You can join in the miracle with every character you perceive in your life. Everything is mind; your own consciousness. It’s just like if this was a movie and it was all for you. As you begin to really question who you are, your self-doubt thoughts are reflected in the world. Notice where you have fear arise and notice the beliefs you are holding. Once you see that it is all the same, that it is one big skit in your mind, joy and playfulness come in. All the characters are reflections of your mind. It’s all one mind. Call on the miracle. Accept the all-inclusive power of your mind.
In this video, David Hoffmeister talks about how to live a life from inspiration. Begin to accept the Spirit’s correction in your everyday life. The ego’s complex script was spun out, projected in an instant. The Spirit corrected this unholy instant, or separation, simultaneously. You accept healing by keeping the purpose of forgiveness in mind. As you move through the day, the way to accept the holy instant is to ask, “What is it for?” What is the purpose motivating you? Find the inspiration within and live from that.
