Gratitude at the David Hoffmeister ACIM Monastery

I do want to thank Jason, and everyone at the Monastery again for welcoming me with such openness. I’m still amazed that I was granted this possibility to see shining types of the teachings of A Course in Miracles, and for initially in an extended while, I don’t feel alone.

Section of me wanted to stay longer, but beneath that desire was the thought that I could be this for the incorrect reason; as an easy way to prevent 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 made it happen coalesce.

That morning, several lines from the Vance Joy song kept running through my head, “I never needs to have told you, never needs to have let you see inside a course in miracles. Don’t are interested troubling your mind, won’t you let it be?” This confused me as I possibly could not consider something that I’d stated that I felt regret for.

Eventually, the phrase, “don’t are interested troubling your mind” stood out. This reminded me that probably the most prominent fear I’d in arriving at the Monastery was that I’d somehow interfere having its residents’reassurance, by just 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 lots of my past experiences and relationships.

This fear left my awareness immediately 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 is being (has been?) released.

You can find other things that happened that felt important, but I can’t consider them right now.
