Heaven Is a State of Mind
The Mind of God expands forever and ever. You are an idea in the Mind of God, forever expanding and blooming naturally into light. When the mind contracts it becomes stuck: stuck in time and space. Developing trust in the Holy Spirit to expose, release, and forgive our illusions is the only thing this world is for. Other than that, it has no meaning and no purpose.
The Tabula Rasa Mystery School is about opening into the awareness of Love’s presence. We polish the mirror of God through forgiveness. The diamond is buried deep within the mind of God’s most holy Son. Behind all of the fear, doubt, shame, and guilt thoughts the radiant truth of who you are merely waits for you to remember.
Tabula rasa means clean slate. This represents the entry into purifying the mind of all beliefs of the ego thought system to reveal our true nature. In this presence, the mind allows only the thoughts I think with God to pour through.
The only source of knowledge is experience.
– Albert Einstein
The name “Tabula Rasa” is also the name of a pamphlet produced by David Hoffmeister in the 1990s. In the pamphlet this presence of the spirit blazes through with inspiring purity, and evokes a feeling that these words are not of this world, not of time and space. David is speaking in the Tabula Rasa from his direct experience from the Heart of God. Using A Course in Miracles (ACIM) as his pathway for entering this direct experience, David is a symbol of one who has applied the Course fully for the single purpose of remembering his oneness with God. He is now a living example of this direct and consistent experience of joy and love not of this world, and is always extending these gifts to those whom he encounters. David has traveled extensively since the early 1990s, sharing from his heart the experience of being consistently happy.
ACIM is very practical in the unlearning of the human condition. You are not born into a body and you do not die. Who you are is perfectly still, pure presence. The miracle worker’s function is solely to be aware of dreaming. ACIM is a gift that helps free us from the unnatural state of the human identity.
This is not a religion. This curriculum offers a tool for entering into the unified awareness, also known by some traditions as self-realization, or in science as the quantum field.
This is a non-dual teaching of ACIM through Jesus. This is a teaching that cannot be put into a box. Why? Because it is from outside of time and space. It is an extraordinary and practical application of an advanced form of forgiveness taught in ACIM. This is about forgiving time and space itself.
The Tabula Rasa Mystery School is a 30-day program designed with very practical steps to start to uncover your true Identity. The ego thought system, when gently exposed to the light of healing, literally disappears. When the ego is hidden, it festers like a disease that grows.
Depression and anxiety are not natural experiences. Joy and peace are your true attributes, and you are literally an idea in the Mind of God. Memories of the past and future thoughts are fantasies. The ego is preoccupied with fantasies, always seeking but never finding. The ego cannot tell you what you are. When we call off the search, stop seeking or striving, there is a gentle awakening into who you are that occurs. The mind that is untrained can accomplish nothing, and so focus and mind training are necessary. The untrained mind is only preoccupied with meaningless thoughts.
The admission to one’s self that man is God’s own likeness
sets man free to master the infinite idea.
– Mary Baker Eddy
When these meaningless thoughts are hidden they create a world of illusion: maya, a dreaming state. We are dreaming in thoughts. The ego thinks its thoughts have value and hides them. When we hide these thoughts we identify with them, and we literally believe we are our thoughts. The self-concept is an accumulation of these thoughts and memories. But you are not who you think you are. You are not a body. You are not your stories. You are not your hurts. When these erroneous beliefs are questioned they literally vanish. This is the work.
Quantum Science explores the observer effect—the inseparability between the observer and the observed. The dreamer and the dream are one illusion. Our mind is very powerful and has never lost its creative ability. It is part of God’s Mind and could literally move mountains. The only problem is that we have not given full respect to the power of thought. The science of the observer effect is a great tool to help us remember; it is a stepping stone idea. In truth we are one with God always. We are never separate from our Source. We have been dreaming a universe, thinking that we are individual people, living in a world of duality. “Us” and “them” or “this” and “that”. In truth there is no “self” and “other”; the entire cosmos and all of time and space is a simultaneous projection of the deceived mind.
It is horrific to think we could have usurped the power of God, so we hide in fear, doubt, and guilt, always running in search of home. This is not our natural state and we will not find any safety in this maya. Jesus said, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
You are not of this world. You are not “here”—you are observing a story long since ended, that really never was. Love is what you are! This is abstract and hidden behind all of your meaningless thoughts and beliefs. The memory of God is returned to awareness once we see our home is found in this pristine mind. It is time for a clean slate!
Knock, And He’ll open the door.
Vanish, And He’ll make you shine like the sun.
Fall, And He’ll raise you to the heavens.
Become nothing, And He’ll turn you into everything.
The Tabula Rasa Mystery School is a very practical tool given to help us as we begin the journey in the school of the mind. Each day we are given new opportunities to open and fully bloom into our natural state. The Awakening or remembering is an ever fresh new experience: a direct experience. This union is the remembrance of your divinity: your changeless reality. Perfectly still am I.
This is beyond all words, teachings, or theories. It is now possible through A Course in Miracles to awaken to your true Identity. The Mystery School uncovers all secrets and exposes them to the light. Who you are is not a secret. It is perfectly clear. The pristine mind awakens to itself. This Self is the Christ.
Through mind training we remember and forget. We need to forget to remember. The forgetting is forgiveness and is very practical as Jesus taught. How many times will you have to forgive? As Jesus said in the Bible, we forgive “seventy times seven.” Matthew 18:21 This is to say we let go continually, forever expanding into the Mind of God.
The deliciousness of this expansion, once experienced, quenches every thirst and fills every soul. Completion is restored and wholeness realized, with created and Creator reunited in bliss eternally. This delight is the experience in our divine Union abiding with our heavenly Father. Love and God are both abstract. We can not explain this truth, but we can experience it beyond all the words and teachings. They are pointers; pointing us forever within to the Kingdom of God. Our heart bursts forever into this love.
Love is who you are and is finally discovered to be the only valuable idea to observe or to occupy your most holy mind. This program is designed to help you remember. You will learn practically how to use your mind most efficiently. How far you want to go is up to you. The more you get attentive and practice the steps, you unwind your mind back to God. You get to decide how far down the rabbit hole you want to go.
This school is unable to teach the meaning of love, but it is a school where we learn to practice forgiveness over and over again. And as we open to the gifts that true forgiveness offers us, we discover that we are the love itself that we have always been searching for.
