“A Course in Miracles” (ACIM) teaches that time is simultaneous. To show the concept of linear time, David Hoffmeister uses a spaghetti string, a noodle. He says that we are like a fish out of water. Or, “a spirit out of spirit—on a noodle!” A spirit who has forgotten spirit and is on a noodle now; that’s pretty difficult. So, if you have had struggles and difficulties in your life, it’s not even surprising, because of the mind’s belief in time. In ACIM, Jesus says that the world was made as an attack upon God. Why would God send you to a world that was made as an attack upon God? That would be mean! Some people may say, “I didn’t ask to be here.” The answer to that is that everyone who believes they are in time asked to be here.
From Fear to Love
In this “A Course in Miracles” Toowoomba, Australia gathering, David and his friend Rob discuss the journey from a point of fear to love. Overcome the grips of fear and forgiving, and open to the experience of God’s Love. When we discover what it takes to let go of the ego, there is an intense amount of fear. We are completely unaware of this fact in our normal lives because we have endless places to project it onto. Yet just having the willingness to go through the fear and open up to love is enough. We don’t need to be concerned with conquering the ego because we will be given all we need to walk through our fear. We’re even given brothers to walk through the fear with.
Apparent Changes in “Life’s Script” Are Not Accidental
Since nothing is accidental, it can never be said that change is real. You cannot say, “that wasn’t supposed to happen,” for instance. To say “the script is written,” means simply that all of perception is about the past. The future, too, is just a deceptive loop of ego thought. The future is not different from the past. All choices in this world are the same choice. Find out what is truly different. In fact, free will does not involve choice. There is no choice in Oneness. Ask only, in every situation, “What is this for?” The purpose you give anything is your only choice.
Under Christ Control
There is a Jesus Christ “central casting” where everything gets handled. You can let go of control and relax. The Holy Spirit will give you what you need. You are safe; you can’t mess it up. Jesus Christ central casting is in charge. You are together with Jesus until the end of time, just looking back at what has already gone by, just imagining that you are making the journey again. You believe that there are still choices open, but this world is all over and done!
