"The Happy Dream"

The excerpts presented here are from the seminar of April 2005 held at the Temecula Center. The discussion focuses on the three kinds of dreams spoken of in A Course in Miracles. The first two belong to the ego: the mind's secret dream in which we are the home of sin, guilt, and fear, and the world's dream in which others are the home of sin and guilt, and we their fearful and innocent victims. Both dreams are undone by the Holy Spirit's happy dreams of the miracle, wherein the problem is withdrawn from the projected world and returned to the mind where it begins and where it will end in the blazing light of forgiveness.

    Rest in the Holy Spirit, and allow His gentle dreams to take the place of those you dreamed in terror and in fear of death.… The dream of guilt is fading from your sight, although your eyes are closed. A smile has come to lighten up your sleeping face. The sleep is peaceful now, for these are happy dreams.
