Gratitude at the David Hoffmeister ACIM Monastery
I wish to thank Jason, and everyone at the Monastery again for welcoming me with such openness. I’m still amazed that I was granted this chance to see shining types of the teachings of A Course in Miracles, and for initially in a lengthy while, I don’t feel alone.
Section of me wanted to remain longer, but beneath that desire was the thought that I would be doing so for the incorrect reason; as an easy way to avoid my problems. The stronger feeling was, and is, that my travels will continue.
Before I left, Jason asked if I’d had any insights. What I’m about to talk about wasn’t yet clear in those days; only on the drive away achieved it coalesce.
That morning, several lines from the Vance Joy song kept running through my head, “I never should have told you, never should have allow you to see inside a course in miracles. Don’t want it troubling your brain, won’t you let it be?” This confused me as I possibly could not think of anything that I’d stated that I felt regret for.
Eventually, the phrase, “don’t want it troubling your mind” stood out. This reminded me that the absolute most prominent fear I’d in visiting the Monastery was that I’d somehow interfere using its residents’peace of mind, simply by my presence alone. This belief that I possibly could negatively affect other people’s state of mind has been with me for quite some time, and has colored a lot of my past experiences and relationships.
This fear left my awareness right after I arrived. On the drive away it rose again, but I remembered David saying in one of his true videos that minds cannot attack. I cried and laughed, and now feel as if the belief will be (has been?) released.
You can find other items that happened that felt important, but I can’t think of them right now.
