|Introduction: Experiencing the Peace of A Course In Miracles|
The call to awaken comes from deep within. It is the invitation to an adventure like none the world has ever offered. The following dialogue has the awakening of the mind as its primary focus. This dialogue is representative of this purpose. This is one of many dialogues David Hoffmeister has engaged in, with the intention of uncovering beliefs that seem to obstruct the awareness of love's presence. He extends both clarity and depth. Since 1990, he has traveled all around the United States and into Canada having very open discussions in which no questions, concerns, or topics were "off limits." The discussions have included nondualistic metaphysics and often resembled a kind of spiritual psychotherapy in which everyday problems and issues were traced back to the false belief system in the mind, where correction is then possible by accepting a healing thought--a miracle. Although these gatherings have taken different forms (i.e., talks, classes, workshops, weekend retreats, counseling, and longer intensives, held in homes, churches, backyards, bookstores, etc.) the purpose has remained unchanged -- to learn true forgiveness and recognize the state of enlightenment.
Teaching that one can recognize truth as all there is and awaken now, what is taught is simply a reflection of clarity in mind. This is a living experience and presence more than just the presentation of ideas.
As Messengers of Peace, we serve as "mighty companions" for each other and recognize that awakening is not a casual endeavor, but one that demands a deliberate and uncompromising commitment. The depth of discussion reflects our willingness to question all our assumptions directly and immediately. It may be considered radical or extreme and from the world's view it is. Total transformation of the mind is approached with a passion and devotion and a burning desire that comes from within. This is our unified goal and purpose.
The time has come to awaken. The time for words and concepts is almost over. Now we seek direct experience of God's Love. We gladly lay aside techniques and repetitions and rituals, that we may come to meet God in the Silence of our hearts. What we thought we knew of God was a mistake. And so we come this time with empty hands and open arms, aware that we do not know the way to God, yet certain that God will show us the way.
As we look around we see that mighty companions have gathered beside us for this final ascent to God. A friend's a friend forever in the Lord. The welcome never ends in the face of Christ. The Holy Relationship has come upon us and we are filled with joy and gratitude. The witnesses to the happy dream are seen everywhere, in every direction we look, and at all times. The blanket of peace has spread across the face of earth. Tranquilty is flowing to its corners.
There is nothing left to do but celebrate, rejoice, and bless. All the trinkets of the world that once caught our eye are valueless before the vastness of this present experience. All ambition and striving for future goals has vanished. All curiosity about the world and its ways has ended. We rest in a stillness so deep and so unfathomable that time drifts by without its touch upon us. We listen. We hear. We rejoice.
This journal is merely a collection of words. Of itself it is nothing. May its words be a reflection of the Inspiration within you, the Call to awaken and be glad. May you be speeded on your way to peace, joy, and eternal happiness. And may you experience that which we cannot speak of, but that which is yours for the asking.
