The happiness of the Real You and the Real God Which created You is simply the experience of this Moment. For there really Is only Now.

Accept Now the Eternal Love of God.

 

~ David Hoffmeister

 

 

 

 

 

My body disappeared because I had no illusion about it. The last one had gone. It was laid in the tomb, but there was nothing left to bury. It did not disintegrate because the unreal cannot die. It merely became what it always was. And that is what "rolling the stone away" means. The body disappears, and no longer hides what lies beyond. It merely ceases to interfere with vision. To roll the stone away is to see beyond the tomb, beyond death, and to understand the body's nothingness. What is understood as nothing MUST disappear.

 
~Jesus
 
 

Accepting Worthiness.. I am not a body. I am free.

Freedom must be impossible as long as you perceive a body as yourself. The body is a limit. Who would seek for freedom in a body looks for it where it can not be found. The mind can be made free when it no longer sees itself as in a body, firmly tied to it and sheltered by its presence. If this were the truth, the mind were vulnerable indeed!

Glorification of the body has been a big part of this life story! I was born into a medical family and followed in my fathers footsteps studying nursing, alternative health and later, transpersonal psychology. To me, I now see, the body's health was ultimately valuable and who I thought I was!!

I became aware recently that the other side of this defence against the Truth is the egos denial of the body, projecting the fear of its demise in anger and attack on its chosen home and then minimising the fear by projecting the thoughts even further afield!

Recently in answer to a plea for a miracle I was invited to deepen my enquiry by looking upon what I had previously called a migraine with an open mind and a sense of 'I do not know what this is!'.... I found that place of not knowing transferred across the whole idea of the body and was followed by a prompt to face the fear of the body's sickness head on and looking straight at it!
Forgive and this will disappear!
Jesus tells us and this is exactly what I experienced!

Next step was actually visiting a doctor which I have not done for over 10 years, having a blood test and confronting the fear that there really was something 'wrong' with me. I had a Jan Frazier moment, as I laughingly called it, sitting in the doctors' office waiting for my results! I am not a body I am free! I am still as God created me' Could I let whatever the results just 'be' without attachment?

It is essential for your progress in this course that you accept today's idea, and hold it very dear. Be not concerned that to the ego it is quite insane. The ego holds the body dear because it dwells in it, and lives united with the home that it has made. It is a part of the illusion that has sheltered it from being found illusory itself.

Here does it hide, and here it can be seen as what it is. Declare your innocence and you are free. The body disappears, because you have no need of it except the need the Holy Spirit sees. For this, the body will appear as useful form for what the mind must do. It thus becomes a vehicle which helps forgiveness be extended to the all-inclusive goal that it must reach, according to God's plan.

So the test results are clear and I drove home a little deflated somehow, as if something huge should have shifted in my mind. But this was just the beginning of the undoing!

That night in prayer I began to see the belief in unworthiness bubble up, previously kept hidden by the adulation of the body as the egos home. Glorified and hated all in one breath! Envy, jealousy, needing approval, attention, recognition, seeing lack and other behaviours flashed across my mind like a near death experience (the ego is a death wish after all! Lol!)! A belief in unworthiness and the fear of God underlying them all! And then I saw as well the egos cunning use of spiritual concepts to keep it stuck in the seeking merry- go- round of self improvement....the ultimate 'authority problem!' I had believed in a self and a life that I could improve on separate from God! I saw that by surrendering more deeply into the 'I don't know mind' that the beliefs I have held about being separate from the Source are really what's wrong, its not Me!

The Holy Spirit is the home of minds that seek for freedom. In Him they have found what they have sought. The body's purpose now is unambiguous. And it becomes perfect in the ability to serve an undivided goal. In conflict-free and unequivocal response to mind with but the thought of freedom as its goal, the body serves, and serves its purpose well. Without the power to enslave, it is a worthy servant of the freedom which the mind within the Holy Spirit seeks.

Beautifully, as this undoing has occurred, it has felt as if the windows of the mind have been washed and polished! This moment has become a resting place in God in which I discover a peace and gratitude that is innocent and fresh! Mystical light sparkles every where I turn, music sounds like a serenade, just for me, and the night sky is jaw-droppingly glorious!

It has been exposed that the mini-me has sought Truth/Freedom to improve some idea of a worldly little self. Now however the tide has turned and I feel Grace carrying me deeper in the desire of the heart to embrace Truth Now, to be the authentic Self I Am!

I feel the inner call to step out of the belief in space and time as each seeming block is revealed to be, as David would say, just 'a puff of nothing'! In its place is revealed a pristine present where nothing needs to be fixed or changed or feared, simply accepted.

The mind that serves the Holy Spirit is unlimited forever, in all ways, beyond the laws of time and space, unbound by any preconceptions, and with strength and power to do whatever it is asked. Attack thoughts cannot enter such a mind, because it has been given to the Source of love, and fear can never enter in a mind that has attached itself to love. It rests in God. And who can be afraid who lives in Innocence, and only loves?

Unlearning to Love!

The Impossible Belief in Illness

Illness is an error in thought, and all thoughts err which follow the erroneous belief that a body can be ill or well, dead or alive. Death is the belief that separation from God, from the One, from the All is possible. Illness and death are the same illusion, for each would deny the Totality, the All-inclusiveness, and the eternal Everything that is Life. All Life is Spirit, and this world is nothing more than the belief that there can be something other than Spirit. The body is a neutral instrument and cannot in Truth be endowed with the attributes or characteristics of illness or wellness, death or life. As a false belief, illness/death can only be forgiven or released. Death is not an evil victimizer or a blessing, but instead an impossibility. Seeing this is Joy! There is no death! I have realized that sickness and death were arrogant thoughts, for they would deny the Omnipotence, Omniscience, and Omnipresence of the Source of All Life. In the Presence of the Source of All Life is only Holiness.

~ David Hoffmeister
 

Very simply, the resurrection is the overcoming or surmounting of death. It is a reawakening or a rebirth; a change of mind about the meaning of the world.

~ Jesus

Community Corner

  
'Whats New' feels like it is evolving, as changes to the way it's presented are occurring.  It will now be included directly into the monthly newsletter rather than being a link on the Living Miracles Australia website.  It also feels like the name, 'Whats New' is changing to 'Community Corner'. Each month I will be inspired to invite members of the Australian community to share their current miracles and happenings, as well as myself still sharing any current news ... Perhaps!  We'll see how it evolves!

So, I hand over to Olga...

My Link to the Living Miracles Community - by Olga Teisseyre
 
I feel overjoyed at the prospect of introducing myself to you, miracle-minded folk, and to share a little about my meeting with Rochelle and Peter here in Marmong Point, N.S.W.

My reaching out to Living Miracles Australia was online via the internet and felt like a joyful and spontaneous "right next step". I have studied A Course in Miracles for over four years, only now getting towards the end of the Workbook lessons, but I feel as though the further I progress with the Course the more the words of the text come alive off the pages into a living experience. A few weeks ago, it suddenly dawned on me to reach out and share my experiences with the Course and learn from others who have similarly walked this path.

Before I knew it, I was packing an overnight bag and leaving the comfort of my quiet rainforest haven near Bellingen, N.S.W. to meet with Rochelle and Pete. While I trusted the Guidance from within to reach out, I nevertheless had fear come up about it along the way. The conscious decision in my mind, however, was to not allow feelings of fear to block Spirit's flow.

Our experiences together have been varied and Spirit-led. I've ridden up and down on a roller-coaster of releasing old beliefs amongst moments of pure joining in Spirit. I have felt an amazing union of mind with Rochelle and Peter. Continually confirming their innocence feels like an experience of One-ness in mind with me. This joining has often times led to an experience of my mouth saying what one of them was thinking or vice versa. Sometimes, it's like myself talking to myself through someone else, if you know what I mean!?

Joining with willing and open folk has helped to cast away illusions of isolation, especially in seeing that any troubles or experiences I go through seem to appear as common themes in the people around me and this is so both inside and outside of the Living Miracles community.

I am so grateful for this feeling of light, in communion, blasting away the debris of my mind. Had I not been willing to hear the call to join, I would have left these remarkable experiences on the table.

Amen, to joining and to a Spirit-led life!

Messengers of Peace
David and the Messengers meet with those who desire to discern between the ego's thought system and the Holy Spirit's purpose of forgiveness. Acknowledging that truth is in the Mind, they offer an invitation to engage in the uncovering of the beliefs that seem to obstruct the awareness of love's presence. The Messengers of Peace serve as mighty companions for each other and recognize that awakening is not a casual endeavour, but one that demands a deliberate and uncompromising commitment. The depth of devotion and faith reflect their willingness to question all assumptions. Total transformation of the mind is approached with passion, devotion, and a burning desire from within. This is their unified goal and purpose.
