Guidance – The Doorway with David Hoffmeister ACIM


So I wanted to ask you first. What is guidance? Well, guidance is receiving instruction from Spirit or higher self, in a way that helps one learn to forgive, learn to truly experience the depth of forgiveness as Jesus Christ taught forgiveness. So it’s like having the way-shower in your mind, and available in a very very practical way, that can be heard or experienced through symbols, in a way that leads to an experience of peace of mind. It comes in many forms, so it’s not always an audible voice. Can be symbols, bumper stickers, song in the car radio, just, something that someone says, symbols all around in many angles, many directions But, the point is well taken that they are all there to communicate information that can be very practical in the spiritual awakening. What’s the highest understanding of guidance? Well, the highest understanding would be accepting the call to stillness, because a still and tranquil mind is no small gift. It’s really the end. It’s the point of everything. To come into this stillness and acceptance. So, the highest form of guidance would be very synonymous with the highest form of meditation. Try not to think of anything, at all. And that takes a lot of training. Because the mind, when it’s split, it’s full of chatter; it’s full of distractions, full of busyness. So the point of guidance is really to clear out that static. Clear away all the debris and experience the stillness. So that’s where it’s all heading. Is “Be still, and know that I’m God.” So in the willingness to follow the seeming guidance that comes through form, it’s leading to this true stillness, which is the guidance. Yeah. Yep. It’s the same goal meditation has. It’s to quiet the mind and still the mind. So you might say, guidance is a use of of words and feelings and symbols to point in the same direction. In that sense it’s very practical. Do you have any sense of… You spoke of it being like a voice. It’s like a companion. It’s what I’m getting from how you describe it. Yeah, that’s what I have experienced. It’s been like a companion, a friend, an internal guide that’s very very close and very very intimate. And very accessible as well. That’s one of the reasons why A Course in Miracles has a pathway that includes guidance, cause it’s so helpful and accelerating the awakening, accelerating the mind training. Yeah, Meditation plays a big part but the guidance is like a trademark of this pathway. Yeah. I have so much gratitude for guidance cause it’s been such a time saver, saving thousands of years and making clear the pathway for me so I can put my heart into it and really focus on a pathway of listen and follow. And of course listening relates to the guidance, internal guidance. Yeah.
