David Hoffmeister's Movie Blog: A Spiritual Awakening Experience of Eternal Innocence with the Movies ~ “How to Train your Dragon”

"Attack is a denial of self and it is not until our function and our true identity is accepted that the world can transform to a place of love, gentleness and collaboration. The enemy is not the enemy at all! It was a misperception! When the need for defense is dropped, innocence is recognized and all it takes is a loving gesture for the fiercest enemy to become an adorable and potentially powerful mighty companion!"

David Hoffmeister's ACIM Blog: Understanding Cause and Effect. Guilt and Miscreation

"It can be believed erroneously that the mind can miscreate in the body, and this is the attempt to project guilt onto the body. But since ideas leave not their source, it is the sleeping mind which continues to retain the guilt. Until the sleeping mind forgives it cannot get rid of guilt. Through the attempt to project guilt the mind keeps it. Projection is really a defense mechanism through which the ego keeps the mind feeling guilty."

David Hoffmeister's ACIM Blog: What is Enlightenment? Awakening and Body Thoughts

"In Enlightenment all perceived pain has vanished, for what but wrong-mindedness seemed to produce the misperception called pain. Pain was the illusion that Christ could leave a Loving Creator's Mind. If pain is real there is no God. If God is real there is no pain. The latter is true because God has no opposite. Enlightenment entails no pain or displeasure about ANYTHING, for Enlightenment is Pure, Constant Happiness, Peace, Freedom, and Joy. Being Constant, Enlightenment knows not of change. The illusion of vulnerability and fluctuating emotions has gone as well. There is no ego to fall 'back into.' Spirit Abides gentle Love. All pain is over Now and nothing remains but a blessing of Stillness."

David Hoffmeister's Movie Blog: True Forgiveness and the Acceptance of Our Eternal Innocence ~ Movie “Solaris”

The movie, "Solaris" is teaching us that cause and effect are together. If we release the false cause in our mind, we also release all the effects—pain, suffering, and upset—that seemed to be a result of that cause. That is what True Forgiveness really is. When we truly forgive the belief that we could have ever existed outside of the Mind of God, Innocence reigns! We realize that we have never done anything wrong, and everything is forgiven because it never happened in Reality!
