Mondays beginning January 11th, 2021 Start: 10am MST End: 11am – 11:15am MST Click here for your time zone Zoom link to join online on Monday 11th: https://tinyurl.com/yxrpzkgq Meeting ID: 838 7549 6203 Passcode: Peace

To begin this first session I will share about the value and purpose of meditation and true prayer; how they are an integral part of ACIM and our awakening journey. I will guide us into a meditation, where we will be in silence for 20 minutes.

Meditation is a way to heal and train our mind to go inward and be still. It is how we relinquish ego thoughts and strengthen our decision for God. True prayer is coming to God with holy empty hands, asking for nothing but to know truth; to remember oneness through our own direct experience.

To join together in this purpose is a Gift beyond measure… for ourselves and for All.

Preparing for the session

  • Let family and friends know that you will be in meditation and unavailable during this time.

  • Find a quiet and secluded area to sit. This would be a place where others won’t be walking by or distracting you. This not only minimizes distractions for you but for other participants who can see your video.

  • If you choose to have your camera on during the session, please stay seated, and ensure that your device / camera is on a steady surface. If you do need to get up and change your position, please turn your camera off until you are resettled.

  • Unless you’re using your phone to participate, ensure it is switched off.

  • Also ensure all call notifications and alerts are switched off on all devices during the session.

  • Please note, we do not have a Studio Team, or experienced tech support available at the Monastery! Please ensure your audio and video settings are functioning well prior to use. If tech support is needed, try these resources: https://zoom.us/ www.Google.com and www.YouTube.com

Beloved Friends,

New Years Blessings to you, extending to every moment that we perceive our self in time. We are blessed to have found our path. Our Purpose is with us every moment that we remember and choose for it. Our decision brings us total freedom every instant we align with the Holy Spirit - who always decides for God for us. Our happiness and peace are not dependent on anything of this world, let alone time! Thank you God!!! We were created to shine!

May our decision for God become so consistent that all else disappears from our heart and mind… revealing what is forever true... God Is... nothing unreal exists.

Invitations ❤️

❤️ From tomorrow morning, the 1st of January 2021, we will be listening to David’s reading and commentary of the ACIM Lessons and sections of the Text as part of the morning prayer/meditation time here at the Monastery.

You are welcome to download this free, high quality audiobook of the first 25 Lessons with commentary, and join us in the depth and prayer each morning, as we listen, and contemplate this profound awakening content in silent meditation.

Each reading is an invitation to unwind from all thoughts of this world and drop into the depth of our Being in God. Click here

After day 25, continue right on with the same series of readings, freely accessible via David’s YouTube or Spreaker channel by simply typing into Google, e.g. David Hoffmeister Lesson 26.

 

❤️ Stay tuned for an invitation which will be shared here in the new year. It is a way to join online in the experience of true prayer and stillness through guided meditations. More details coming soon! 


❤️ Tomorrow night we will be joining in online for the first Awakening From the Dream Online Retreat of 2021, with David Hoffmeister, Frances Xu, and Living Miracles community. It is the “Celebration of Illumination - the Great Awakening”.

“So will the year begin in joy and freedom. There is much to do, and we have been long delayed. Accept the holy instant as this year is born, and take your place, so long left unfulfilled, in the Great Awakening. Make this year different by making it all the same. And let all your relationships be made holy for you. This is our will. Amen.” (T-15.XI.10)

Beloved one,

This is a blessed time to be together in our hearts and minds, nurturing awareness of Christ Presence and Purpose within.


In the full Yes of giving all to this moment, without reservation, we receive our true Heart’s desire. In the fullness of giving, all sense of a separate self dissolves. To give fully, is to hold on to nothing.


As a creation of God, our natural state is extension / giving. The Gifts of God are ours to give - in fact our entire pathway of awakening is the shift from seeking outside / getting / desiring some 'thing' to realizing that it is for us to give. Always.


Here are the audios from Christmas Eve satsang in the Monastery chapel: Gifts of God 1 - The End of Seeking click here Gifts of God 2 - True Giving click here




The time of Christ is now!

The Christmas Star appearing as it did 2,000 years ago heralding awareness of Christ inspired prayer scrolls to be written and offered into the fire, and joyful recognition of the blazing light ever available to remind of our sure direction.

We came together around a roaring fire under the vast Utah sky in silent contemplation, with a playlist of mystical songs playing in the background. Enjoy the songs here



Celebration of Illumination

A free four-day collaborative online event with all kinds of sessions, from a movie session with David, to metaphysical episodes with Jason and Emily, to awakening comedy skits to awakening concerts with talented musicians.

The Opening Session with David Hoffmeister and Frances Xu will be live-streamed for free on YouTube at 10am CST next Monday, December 28th.

To experience the full event in Zoom, sign up at the link listed in the YouTube description here.

The celebration continues on into the three-day Awakening from the Dream monthly retreat.

So will the year begin in joy and freedom. There is much to do, and we have been long delayed. Accept the holy instant as this year is born, and take your place, so long left unfulfilled, in the Great Awakening. Make this year different by making it all the same. And let all your relationships be made holy for you. This is our will. Amen. (T-15.XI.10)

Join for our first online retreat of the new year 2021, starting on January 1st! The retreat will be led by David Hoffmeister, Frances Xu, and the Living Miracles community. The weekend will be a more intimate continuation of our "Celebration of Illumination" starting on December 28th, where you will have the opportunity to ask the deepest questions on your heart. We will dive deeper into the topic of "the Great Awakening" and the profound teaching from A Course in Miracles on forgiveness: "Make this year different by making it all the same."


When you register for the monthly online retreat here, you are automatically enrolled for the 4–day free online event starting on December 28th.


Christmas blessings of joy and love to you, as we welcome the changeless reality of our being in God ❤️

With Love,

Kirsten and beloveds at the Living Miracles Monastery ❤️
