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

Part of me wanted to keep longer, but beneath that desire was the idea that I could be doing so for the wrong reason; as an easy way to prevent my problems. The stronger feeling was, and is, that my travels will continue.

Before I left, Jason asked if I had had any insights. What I’m about to talk about wasn’t yet clear during those times; only on the drive away made it happen coalesce.

That morning, several lines from a Vance Joy song kept running through my head, “I never should have told you, never should have enable you to see inside. Don’t are interested troubling the mind, won’t you allow it be?” This confused me as I could not think of anything that I had stated that I felt regret for.

Eventually, the phrase, “don’t are interested troubling your mind” stood out. This reminded me that probably the most prominent fear I had in coming to the Monastery was that I would somehow interfere with its residents’satisfaction, by simply my presence alone. This belief that I could negatively affect other people’s state of mind has been with me for quite some time, and has colored a lot 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 as if the belief will be (has been?) released.

There are other things that happened that felt important, but I can’t think of them right now.
