Appreciate the following excerpt taken from a transcribed talk by David Hoffmeister for Nondual Teachers.
It’s sort of funny some civilizations we celebrate birth and we, the ego is mourning departure. Then you can come across a few other cultures, such as in New Orleans, where they actually dance and celebration when someone dies. There are actually some cultures where they grieve when there’s a newborn. You see exactly how reversed? It’s all relative. We can’t say that it’s all this way because it’s much ado about nothing.
So long as we start to select the form badly, for example divorce, 1 person was saying to me oh my wife, my daughter, my kids, are all mad about this divorce that is coming about. He said “what would you think, what do you consider this divorce?” I said “yeah it’s a decision and I honor all decisions.” When somebody tells me they are getting divorced I am like oh fine, or when somebody tells me they’re getting married, okay, or if somebody tells
Me I am likely to commit suicide or check out, alright.
Nondual Teachers have to begin to realize everything is mind and what is a decision and who are we to tell anyone anything really? Who are we to provide 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 I was invited to come down and then all the sudden I began getting phone messages, don’t come, it is terrible, my husband went off with another woman and we are talking divorce now. It was a complete tour the Holy Spirit was having me down in Argentina and this affair item, they believed the Holy Spirit was just like oh stop the whole excursion, potential divorce proceeding on here.
So I go down and the husband that was off with another woman and the wife, they picked me up at the exact same car. Her name was Maria Christina Uare, Mary Christ you’re.
Adored him so much she simply called him that the King. The King discovered another woman. But I’d always known him so I return, they 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 just loving, loving, adoring, adoring, even when the kids would return to me and proceed David you don’t understand, and he is still residing in the home, oh, oh, oh. I stated these are decisions, we must honor and respect conclusions. Everything is decisions but it is only when we have the filter of conclusion where we come in and go awe that is a
Terrible decision. We’re here in order to forgive and to love, period. And so me going down there was very transformation for everybody involved. It simply gave everyone permission to let all their emotions come up and confront their emotions and face their conclusions. And I kept ringing the bell of innocence, recall we are
Innocent, everybody is innocent. If a person is guilty figure what that means for your rest?
