Enjoy the following excerpt taken from a transcribed talk by David Hoffmeister for Nondual Teachers.
It is sort of funny some civilizations we celebrate arrival and we, the self is grieving death. Then you can find a few other civilizations, such as in New Orleans, where they actually dance and party whenever someone dies. There are actually a few cultures where they grieve whenever there is a newborn. You see how flipped? It is all relative. We cannot state it’s this way since it is much ado about nothing.
As long as we begin to take the form badly, like divorce, 1 person was saying to me oh my wife, my daughter, my children, are all upset about this divorce that is coming about. He said “what do you think, what do you consider this divorce?” I said “yeah it is a decision and I honor all choices” When somebody tells me they are getting divorced I am like oh fine, or if someone tells me they’re getting married, fine, or if someone tells
Me I am going to commit suicide or test out, okay.
Nondual Teachers must start to realize what’s mind and what is a choice and who are we to tell anyone anything really? Who are we to give advice or make a pronouncement if they say I am getting a divorce?
I had been called down to South America a few years back and that I had been encouraged to return and then all of the sudden I started getting telephone messages, do not come, it’s terrible, my husband went away with another woman and we are talking divorce today. It was a complete tour the Holy Spirit had been having me down in Argentina and also this affair item, they thought the Holy Spirit was like oh stop the entire tour, potential divorce proceeding on here.
So I go down and the husband that was away with another woman and the wife, they both picked me up in the same car.
Loved him she just called him that the King. The King discovered another woman. However, I had always known him so that I return, they both pick up me, and I go Maria, oh Maria, oh King.
How would Jesus interact with them? Do you believe Jesus goes I heard you had an affair? No way. I was only adoring, adoring, loving, loving, even when the children would come to me and proceed David you don’t understand, and he is still living in the house, oh, oh, oh. I said these are conclusions, we must honor and respect conclusions. Everything is conclusions but it is just when we have the filter of judgment where we come in and go awe That’s a
Terrible choice. We are here in order to forgive and to love, period. And so me going down there was very transformation for everyone involved. It only gave everyone permission to allow each of their emotions come up and face their feelings and confront their conclusions.
Innocent, everybody is innocent. If a person is guilty figure what that means for your remainder?
