Love is all there is, with no opposites. God is one and extends perfect oneness as Spirit. The present moment is the closest approximation to eternity this world offers. People’s dualistic thoughts, feeling guilty about the past, and fearing the future are covering over eternity. So, we let go of them in favor of an experience of the heart.
There is no trace of individuality in the oneness of heaven. When you honestly express your divine spirituality, even with family members, you will attract joyful witnesses. People tire of metaphysics. Be happy and simple. Shine your light. Let Spirit guide you into fun.
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.
When you see the healing of God’s Son as all you wish to see accomplished by the world and by time and all experiences, you will know the Father and the Son. The world was made as a distractive device, and if we do anything to reinforce the duality of the world, we cover over the oneness that we truly are.
David welcomes a group at the start of a weekend retreat and gives an overview of the spiritual journey. Topics include: purification of thought; oneness; pure, open-mindedness; letting go of dualism; devoted practice and the desire to be still and know God; innocence.
The beginner’s mind is the “I don’t know” mind. It’s a beautiful place to live. It’s a wonderful feeling to have no opinions; very freeing. One doesn’t feel dumb or credulous; just free. And everything that is needed in any situation is given without any vote from you at all.
There is a high burnout rate in the field of Social Service because it is often mixed with the ego. Don’t serve because you think there is a need. Release misperceptions from your mind. See your brothers’ wholeness and completeness. When you are in divine service you are inspired. David said “yes” to Spirit and was in joy in his world travels. If you are happy, the whole world is too. All service is Self service.
