Accept the Happy Dream

Robert:  I have an image of myself floating on water that completely supports me without any effort on my part. It’s like floating on the Great Salt Lake, without the salt. I feel so supported. I can completely let go. There is no need to effort, just relax. As I relax more deeply, the sense of even being supported by anything different from me fades. I have become one with what supports me. There is nothing to fear. I am joined with absolute strength, absolute peace and I know I am safe.

In that knowing of perfect safety and peace, I feel free to invite everyone to join me. I know that no harm is possible. There is no need to defend, so now I can freely experience the joy of joining with everyone in perfect Love. There is nothing else to experience. There is no wish to experience anything else for the joy is perfectly fulfilling. I rest in this Love in gratitude and peace.

Holy Spirit to Sharyn:
  Letting go, which is the same as forgiveness, will bring you to the happy dream. Letting go of all thought of “I should do this,” or “I want it to go this way,” or “I need this,” or whatever it is, is your only job. This constant letting go releases you and brings you the freedom to realize Who you really are. You deserve, as everyone does, to live the happy dream. Let go and let Me take you there.

Self to Annie:
  The happy dream is everywhere. All you need to do is look with Spirit. He will show you the happiness contained in everything when you look at the Light in everything. There is a sweet reflection of Love in all things that we look upon. The Spirit puts it there to remind you of the Love that you are. He will use everything as a reminder.

Be happy today, because the happy dream is everywhere, because it is in your holy mind. The happy dream is the shared dream. It is the dream contained in joining in Love. The thought of the happy dream will make all hearts joyful, because its Originator is the Spirit of Joy.

The Self calls all to join in this happiness. It can be done right here, right now. You can put your sad dreams aside this very moment and join in the happy dream of the Holy Spirit. This is a blessing that belongs to all of you. Receive it with an open heart and an open mind. This is what is left for you to experience in this world that you have made. What is left is the happy dream. Accept it today. Don’t let it slip away. It is yours.

This morning as I go into a place of quiet, I am shown that my opportunity for today is to look at every thought that floats by with Holy Spirit. With Holy Spirit, the thoughts that are not true are undone or seen as false ideas to forgive or let go of. I see that, as I do this forgiveness all through the day, I am led by the Holy Spirit to the happy dream. I am led to see past illusions of separation to the eternal truth.

Let Yourself Experience the Blessing of Love

Holy Spirit to Mary:  See only the Holy Spirit in everyone. This means seeing only innocence, seeing only the Light of truth. Be aware of how it feels as you are willing to see only the Light of truth. Be aware that you are healed as you are willing to see only the Light of truth. Practice this today.

Holy Spirit to Sharyn:
  Today practice receiving all the miracles that are yours. Receiving miracles is simply allowing the Light to shine forth from within. Seeing the Light in everyone and everything allows miracles to happen often.

Receiving God’s Love and extending it to others allows them to receive miracles also. Keep spreading God’s Love and Light to all. As you have been given, pass this on to others so that they will receive. Never be concerned with keeping God’s gifts or withholding them from others. They are yours to share with everyone and He will continually fill you with more Light and more Love. So give freely today.

Holy Spirit to Robert:
The more you love the more you know you are loved and the more you know you are Love. Because you are Love, it is only natural for you to extend Love. So if you do not seem to be extending Love, there must be some interference. This interference is only a belief, it is not real. In truth, you always extend Love because of What you are. But your beliefs can hide your Love from you.

To experience the blessing of Loving, you need simply turn over all interfering beliefs to the Holy Spirit for His gentle correction. This is a moment by moment practice. You have a well learned habit of believing in what is not Love. But the moment by moment turning over of these beliefs can and will undo the habit. You will return to the Loving Self you are because it is your will.

Holy Spirit to Dorie:
  All healing comes from a well deep within your Spirit. You breathe in the Light of Love and extend It to all around you. As you look within, you find My healing Spirit. Let it calm you. Continue to breathe slowly. No harm can come to you for the Spirit within guides your way. The Spirit within heals you and all in your world.

Keep the Faith by Seeing All Through Spirit’s Eyes

Holy Spirit to Robert: I am seeing myself standing in a temple of Love. This temple does not have physical form, rather it is an experience of deep peace, exquisite unity and the joyous extension of Love without limit. Nothing is excluded from this temple, for it is One. It represents our Home. It is where we live in truth.

Now I bring to mind all those in my life that I have thought of as other people. I bring them into the temple with me. I begin by naming names of people who come to mind. When names no longer come to mind, I remember no one is excluded, whether I have names or images for them or not. This temple of Love includes all, with no exceptions.

I see myself now standing in this temple of Love, joined by all. My heart overflows. I feel perfectly safe. I have no cares or worries because I feel the strength and assurance of Love. I know that there is nothing else. I am fully immersed in the peace of God and I am free. My heart is filled with gratitude.

  I am believing in illusions or I am accepting the truth. This is always the choice that is before me in every moment. I can tell which I am choosing by the level of peace I feel or, on the other hand, the level of fear and conflict I feel. If I am judging anyone or any situation, I am choosing illusions.

Today it is my opportunity once again to forgive, or hand illusions over to the Holy Spirit, where they will be undone. My job is to hand them over. The Holy Spirit’s job is to show me the difference between truth and illusions. When I forgive, or let go of illusions, peace returns. Forgiveness is my only purpose today and every day. By this I am freed.

Holy Spirit to Dorie:
  See all things through Spirit’s eyes. Do this all day today. If you look only through Spirit’s eyes, there is no need for forgiveness, because there is no error. Especially see yourself through Spirit’s eyes when you are speaking to others. If you do so, you will see them as perfect as they are and your words will hold no error. It is impossible to see error when seeing through Spirit’s eyes.

Holy Spirit to Sharyn:
Trusting in Me is having faith that everything is taken care of for you. That means every little detail; not just some things but all things. Trusting in Me for the Answer for all your concerns is all you need do. Just ask and trust that it is done. Don’t take it back. Have faith and know that I am always there and I will answer your every need. I am here to serve you.

All I ask is that you will go and serve others in need. Have faith that the perfect ones will be sent to you. Have faith that I know what is best for all concerned, always. Most of all, have faith that when you are serving others, it is done through Me. Of yourself, you can do nothing. Keep the faith!

The Joy of Loving

Holy Spirit to Robert:  There is great joy in extending Love. There is great depression and isolation in judgment. Love sees no differences, for It sees only Itself extended. Judgment sees differences because it is an attempt to disconnect and limit. In every moment you choose between the joy of loving and the sad isolation of judgment.

Now is the time to give up your pathetic attempts at judgment. You have no real basis for judgment so you make up images and stories that seem to justify your judgment. Now is the time to turn over all your vain attempts at judgment to the Holy Spirit in your mind, Who alone can judge truly, being united with Love.

Love’s judgment is simple: What is not Love is not real. The dedicated practice of turning all your thoughts over to Love for Its healing judgment will return you to the joy of loving. Now is the time.

Holy Spirit to Mary:
  Today practice stepping back and relaxing frequently. Practice stepping back, taking a deep breath and letting go. Practice opening to the stillness of God’s peace.

Practice listening to the Holy Spirit, Who is right there in your mind. The Holy Spirit will bring you to the truth that you are still safe in the Mind of God. You have never left Heaven. You are still as God created you. You are perfect Love and the dream is just a dream. Practice stepping back frequently today and allowing the truth to return to your mind.

Let Your True Self Be Your Interpreter

Holy Spirit to Robert:  Let go of all meaning you have attached to anything and everything you perceive in the world. It does not serve you. It only stands as a barrier that interferes with your ability to recognize the truth. Of yourself, you understand nothing and have no basis on which to interpret anything.

Let your mind be clear of all past thoughts and come with empty hands to the Self God created as you. Be willing to receive the gift of the present, which shines with the Light of Love. It is a gift beyond measure, because it is a gift without limits of any kind.

Be vigilant against interpreting anything on your own. Let your Self interpret all things on your behalf and you will learn of the magnificence of the Love you are and that is everywhere to be seen. Thus will you have a day of Light.

Holy Spirit to Mary:
  Go to a place of silence. Rest in this sacred place in your mind. There the veil will be lifted and you will be shown the real world that lies beyond the world of separate bodies. This world is the truth. It is your friend.

Stop frequently today and let your mind return to this pure place of peace where the Holy Spirit resides. Let the Holy Spirit replace all false ideas you have been carrying in your mind. Let the Holy Spirit inspire you and direct your thoughts. This is how to be truly helpful to yourself and everyone around you.

Accept the Gift of Love

Holy Spirit to Robert:  You really want Love. Accept It. It is yours to be received and given. This world is the effect of believing that you do not have what you were given eternally in your creation. Because of this belief you feel deprived and experience lack of Love. Yet you have Love because you are Love. This can never change because it is God’s will.

Forgive the world for its apparent lack of Love. Forgive yourself for believing this could ever be. It’s time to give up playing childish games of make believe. They offer you nothing you really want. Give up the judgment and condemnation. They merely make a veil that seems to separate you from the Love your brother offers you in every instant.

Does a brother seem to bother you? Give this thought to the Holy Spirit and open your heart and mind to His loving correction. Is a situation or circumstance not to your liking? Give it to the Holy Spirit. Give it freely. Release it. It does not belong to you. Let the Holy Spirit show you the Love that does belong to you. Do you feel alone and vulnerable? Give this thought to the Holy Spirit. Let it go to Him. Let Him show you that you can never be alone because you are united with All that is. Let Him show you that you cannot be vulnerable because there is nothing outside of you. He will bring you to the experience of your strength in Love.

You are loved and you are lovable. Accept the gift of Love that is already yours.

Holy Spirit to Mary:
  With every brother you see the ego or you see the Holy Spirit in him. Which do you want to see? The Holy Spirit is his essence and you can see It if you are willing. Let this be your practice today, to see the Holy Spirit in every brother.

As you think of him, you will think of yourself. Let yourself see the Christ in him. Let ourself feel the one Christ Spirit that abides in everyone. Let yourself feel the truth of peace and oneness. Let his feeling be your guide today.

Peaceful Productivity

Holy Spirit to Dorie:  Let today be a day of joy and peaceful productivity. Let Me direct. Follow Me. No worries, no fear, just Love, joy and peace.

Holy Spirit to Mary:
  Watch your thoughts today. Watch your attachment to certain thoughts. Watch whose hand you are holding as you give meaning to the thoughts. See your innocence. See everyone’s innocence. Remember to laugh at fear thoughts.

Holy Spirit to Robert
: Step back from interpreting anything on your own. Let your true Self show you the Love in all things. As you do this, you experience the peace that Love is. In this state your mind is not cluttered with meaningless thoughts of defense and preparation for an imagined future. In this clarity your productivity is maximized, as you allow your Self to be the Director and Guide in every moment.

Love is expressed through form when you allow your Self to be in charge while you seem to be in this world. With your Self in charge, you are in the happy dream of forgiveness and recognizing innocence everywhere.
