David uses the movie, “Meet the Parents,” with Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro, to show how people in your life act out your unconscious beliefs. At first it is upsetting, and then, as you do the inner work, you reach a point where you can laugh at it, and that is being aligned with Spirit. As you become more aligned with Spirit, you draw forth more witnesses to what is really in your heart.
Undoing the Ego
In this David Hoffmeister ACIM talk we learn about movies that can support mind training! “A Course in Miracles” is a mind training guide towards non-dual awareness. David Hoffmeister speaks from the Awakened Mind. He is a living demonstration of the teachings in ACIM. Enjoy! If you were on a desert island and only had one movie left to request, watch “Solaris” with George Clooney. The message of this is, “what you give is what you get.” All your thoughts manifest very quickly.
On the spiritual journey, there is a need to bring up and expose thoughts. What if you have a fear of expressing your thoughts, emotions, and weaknesses? In “The Matrix,” Neo is flushed through a drain-pipe and then lifted up, out of the mess, to his companions. Say to the Holy Spirit, “I’m enmeshed in the personal. It’s messy, I have anxiety, and I need help!” The Holy Spirit will lift you up. There is so much joy beyond the dismantling!
In this world, the ego uses the body for many many things. If you follow the ego, you will seem to get sick and die and have a pretty rough life. If it was a computer, the body would have the default settings of sickness and death. But, the Holy Spirit offers an alternative to the belief in death. The Holy Spirit has only one purpose for the body. The Holy Spirit uses the body as a communication device to expand your perception all the way to forgiveness.
