The Script is Written! Time is Simultaneous, Undo the Belief in Linear Time With Movies “Gone with the Wind” and “The Secret”

Question:  I know the Course says the script is already written. Does that mean that all my thoughts are scripted as well? Like when I choose forgiveness as opposed to listening to my ego, is that something that is outside of my control as well? If I got distracted again and I get angry, and I forgive and release it, was that going to happen anyway?

Love Me! David Hoffmeister, “Movie Watcher’s Guide to Enlightenment” on “The Great Gatsby” and the Treachery of Specialness

Trust allows us to open to the Holy Spirit and spiritual vision, the unfamiliar. We want intimacy and freedom and have looked for it in the

Mind Is the Cause of Everything; Movies for Awakening and the Projection Metaphor ~ David Hoffmeister ACIM

David Hoffmeister on Movies for Awakening:

Mind is the cause of everything. Being in the sleeping mind, only the ego thought system, the projector, is active. The Holy Spirit, although always present in the mind, is unheeded and forgotten. It is like the light before it goes through the film in the projector.

Seeing itself as the agent of the separation, the ego is filled with intolerable amounts of fear.

Watching movies in purpose is a way of remembering our true self.”

What Is a Spiritual Awakening Experience? Q&A with David Hoffmeister

A spiritual awakening experience ~ David Hoffmeister shares:


Greetings Beloved,

The question was asked: "Who experiences the experience?"

Experience and experiencer are One. There is no "personal" experience in Truth.

The question was asked: "Is the experience not relative?"

Certainty is absolute and unchanging. "Relative experience" is therefore a contradiction in terms, or in other words, impossible.

The question of identity seemed to be the ego.
