The Experience of a Modern-Day Mystic
By David Hoffmeister
My presence hasn’t changed in many years. I retired when the body was 34. I gave the body and the mind and everything over to Jesus. Jesus told me this would happen. He told me, "You won’t have a career." And at that point—it was 1991—I was hearing Jesus’ voice on a daily basis, instructing me in a very conversational tone. It made my life extremely easy; never had a difficult decision to make. For myself, I was told where to go, who to meet, what to do, what to say—very, very practical.
In that year, Jesus said to me, "Now you are mine. You have no life of your own. No future ambitions. No future goals." That was the end of my human will. And with it came a very deep peace that seemed to grow stronger in those early years. It got deeper and deeper. Like I was watching a movie. Like the world was a fairy tale. I wasn’t striving to make anything different. I didn’t have any motive to convince anybody of anything. I was just in a deep acceptance. Then the gifts of the Spirit started coming very strong and in many different ways, like using music and movies. I still marvel at how the symbols get used. I never take anything for granted. It always seems amazing and marvelous. We can all learn from the mystical teachings of Jesus.
