David Hoffmeister, modern day mystic, began his journey to spiritual enlightenment in 1986 when he encountered the non-dual teaching A Course in Miracles (ACIM) and recognized it as the tool he had been seeking for a radical transformation of his mind and perceptions. In the early years David studied ACIM with passionate intensity, often reading it for eight or more hours a day.
After two years of this study, David began to seek the company of other students of ACIM, attending as many as five groups a week. He was startled to find that a Voice was speaking through him with great authority, so that many began referring their questions to him.
Among family members, friends and teachers, David was always known for questioning everything, rather than accepting conventional answers. Thus he was delighted to find in ACIM support and encouragement from the Voice of Jesus Christ for his careful examination of every belief, concept, and assumption in his mind.
Parables of Uncomditional
David came from a background of devoted Christianity, living as a christian inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. He learned how to forgive and how to experience Love from A Course In Miracles (ACIM) and the ACIM Workbook lessons. He was inspired by discovering Who is God and How to Find God.
In 1991 David was impelled to make another leap of trust and to begin traveling around the United States and Canada, sharing his clarity of understanding related to A Course in Miracles. He followed Jesus' instructions to "become as a child", allowing himself to be totally dependent on the Holy Spirit for money, transportation, shelter, food and the words to speak in countless ACIM gatherings, churches, metaphysical and spiritual groups and a host of holy encounters with persons who knew nothing of the Course.
David found that it was his constant joy and peace that was the best teacher in all encounters, and that it was this peace that all his brothers and sisters were seeking. The Voice of Jesus told David – as it instructed the apostles 2,000 years before, "Freely you have received; freely give."
