In this talk, David reveals the practical tools of Awakening and how they are used to help heal our mind. He shares about his journey as a devotee of Christ, desiring only to be the living Presence of Spirit and to go wherever called. As he immersed himself deeply in the teachings of “A Course in Miracles,” allowing his mind to become empty of personal beliefs and expectations, he came to a consistent state of unified perception, the true experience of the happy dream.

Every symbol and image that you see with the body’s eyes is a reflection. When you look at a child, you can see the child as a mirror of your mind. Any grievances and limits you see in the child are within your own mind. If you are practicing ACIM and raising children, you see what is taking place in your thoughts. As children go through grade school and into high school, you can look at your own beliefs about authority, normalcy, education and success.

The happy dream is a dream of non-judgment. People organize their lives based on false belief systems. Forgiveness is a belief system that swallows all of them up. When you experience forgiveness, you experience that all specific beliefs are completely untrue and so you are in a state of complete open-mindedness and acceptance. It is no longer possible to get into an argument because there are zero differences, zero opinions. Everything is you, now, in peace and joy. The perceptual dream is purified and that is the only dream there is.

As A Course in Miracles teaches, the happy dream of non-judgment is the goal; not God. As we release our beliefs and see through forgiving eyes, the Holy Spirit will provide everything we think we need. As we let go of judgment, the Spirit will work through us in a very beautiful and joyful way! We will experience the happy dream!

All objects are part of the self-concept. Jesus let the Holy Spirit give them back to him cleansed, all in one category: unreal. On the cross, he was no longer in the body; he did not see Judas as betraying him. The body (not the temple) will be rebuilt in three days. If you believe in unity and wholeness you see the real world. Although the body’s eyes report differences, Vision comes through the mind.

The Holy Spirit will use symbols the ego made—such as movies—for forgiveness lessons to gradually wake you from the nightmare and show you a happy dream. Follow your heart on a safe, fun process of unlearning.
