Gratitude at the David Hoffmeister ACIM Monastery

I 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 opportunity to see shining types of the teachings of a course in miracles acim, and fo the very first time in a lengthy while, I don’t feel alone.

Section of me wanted to keep longer, but beneath that desire was the thought that I will be doing so for the incorrect reason; as a means 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 fairly share was not yet clear at that time; only on the drive away did it coalesce.

That morning, several lines from a Vance Joy song kept running through my head, “I never must have told you, never must have let you see inside. Don’t want it troubling your brain, won’t you allow it to be?” This confused me as I really could not think of whatever 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 arriving at the Monastery was that I would somehow interfere using its residents’reassurance, by simply my presence alone. This belief that I really could negatively affect other people’s state of mind has been with me for several years, 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 like the belief has been (has been?) released.

You can find other items that happened that felt important, but I can’t think of them right now.
