The World is an Illusion

06-14-17  The World is an Illusion

In this talk by mystic David Hoffmeister, he starts off by quoting the character Morpheus from the movie, “The Matrix”. In the movie, Morpheus is the one who’s purpose is to help Neo (the main character played by Keanu Reeves) to realize that he is the One, and that the matrix is just a prison that was made to keep the mind unaware of the truth.

In the modern-day spiritual masterpiece known as A Course in Miracles, it is taught that our world is very much like the matrix. It was projected by the ego, the belief in separation, and just like the matrix, its sole purpose was to prevent us from remembering our True Identity.  Awakening from this “matrix” dream world is the sole purpose of time now, and is accomplished through non-judgment. By laying aside past judgments and listening to our Intuition instead (in Christian terms, the Holy Spirit), we shall release the sense of separation and come into an Experience of our true Oneness in Spirit!

The Inward Journey

05-31-17   The Inward Journey

The ego in us always wants to see the cause of our problems as outside of ourselves and beyond our ability to change. But truth would teach that the cause of everything we perceive is within our own mind and nowhere else. The violence we perceive in the world needs to be healed within our own mind. The sickness we perceive needs to be healed within our own mind. Every issue we seem to have or perceive in others, whether it is repressed sexuality, social issues, money problems, or political issues can only be healed in one place… within our own mind. How? As we learn to relinquish our identification with the ego’s way of thinking, and learn to think with the Spirit instead, our mind remembers the truth and no longer feels a need to project the belief in separation. The more we can identify our unconscious beliefs and release them, the clearer our channel to Source becomes, allowing us to remember our unity with God.

What’s My Purpose?

05-17-17  What’s My Purpose?

When caught up in our ego thinking it c​an feel as though we have no purpose. That is because the ego’s purposes for us are all meaningless, yet are disguised as being meaningful. Making more money, trying to succeed, and attempting to maintain a happy life through the form of things is based on the false belief that we are an autonomous being apart from God. Yet A Course in Miracles teaches us that this human life is illusory, and that it is only by relinquishing all the ego’s separate purposes in favor of Spirit’s one purpose of Awakening that we can find true Peace and extend that Peace to all. Enjoy this talk of David sharing his enlightening parables of Joy as he followed the Spirit and learned this lesson for himself.

Let It Go

05-03-17   Let It Go

Everything that is needed for us to awaken to our True Nature is always here and now. Whatever needs to happen for us to go deeper in the practice of forgiveness will always reveal itself. It may take the form of issues with family, friends, our government, our pets, or others… always to help us let go of whatever roles we’ve been playing which no longer serve. While following the Spirit on this journey can seem very difficult at times, it is always possible to open to the experience of letting go. As we do, we can allow ourselves to be as if we were being gently carried along like a leaf on a river. Such is the wonderful experience of true relaxation that comes with letting go!
