This world we see can seem very real, but, in fact, it is a dream. We may feel like we have many problems in this life such as money, relationships, jobs, family issues, addictions and all kinds of issues the ego wants us to believe we have. There is only one problem, and that is our perception. By changing our thought and belief system we can wake up from this dream world and change our perception to a happy dream. The ego would have us think that to escape the world as we see it is a very complex mission, whereas the Spirit would have us learn that it is very simple. Each time we take a step towards the happy dream the ego tags along in the hope of distracting us. It wants to keep us locked into our dualistic way of seeing the world through comparison, diversity, and multiplicity. When we come into a direct experience of a non-dualistic perception all comparison and judgments drop, giving way to the happy dream. This is a place of gratitude and thankfulness, knowing that we are not separate but are all one. “The ego is complex and the Holy Spirit is simple. The fragmented world of separation and distortion is complicated and the happy dream is simple. But it is so extremely, extremely, extremely simple that the only way you can experience it is through it’s simplicity. And you will be challenged by the ego at every turn because the ego doesn’t want you to experience that simplicity. Because it’s out of business, and never was, in that simplicity.”

Violence is in the mind, not in the world. The ego belief system opposes oneness, opposes love, opposes God. The ego belief system is what is violent and abusive. Judgment is violent. Egoic perception is violent. Jesus gave us the two most helpful words in all of history: “Judge not.” Therefore, when you have a major upset and are perceiving violence in the world, the most helpful thing you can do for yourself is ask for help in perceiving differently. Only true forgiveness can heal the perception of violence.
Guidance 10–30 mins, Fear, Inspiration, Perceptual Problem, Readiness and Willingness, Spiritual Journey
There’s nothing in the linear world that can inform you of your readiness for Awakening. The willingness is the first step, which is why most people can relate to being willing to follow Spirit throughout the day. Readiness comes after much willingness, and then mastery follows. The ego believes that mastery can be achieved by doing things in form to master their fear, but true mastery can only be achieved through Love—through following the Holy Spirit’s gentle and loving guidance without exception.

Instead of focusing on the body, put your attention on joining, connecting. The ego-mind looks for problems to solve; the whole world is a mirror of this mind searching and exaggerating the problem instead of the solution (joining). A succession of personality identities will be revealed; even “teacher of God” or the “saint” are masks. We must keep unveiling until all is exposed and we have moved completely into the light. Always be authentic and guidance for the next step will be there.
