How to Have Happy Dreams

The happy dreams the Holy Spirit brings are different from the dreaming of the world, where one can merely dream he is awake. ²The dreams forgiveness lets the mind perceive do not induce another form of sleep, so that the dreamer dreams another dream. ³His happy dreams are heralds of the dawn of truth upon the mind. ⁴They lead from sleep to gentle waking, so that dreams are gone. ⁵And thus they cure for all eternity.

Atonement heals with certainty, and cures all sickness. ²For the mind which understands that sickness can be nothing but a dream is not deceived by forms the dream may take. ³Sickness where guilt is absent cannot come, for it is but another form of guilt. ⁴Atonement does not heal the sick, for that is not a cure. ⁵It takes away the guilt that makes the sickness possible. ⁶And that is cure indeed. ⁷For sickness now is gone, with nothing left to which it can return.”

“…find the source of healing, which is in our minds because our Father placed it there for us. ³It is not farther from us than ourselves. ⁴It is as near to us as our own thoughts; so close it is impossible to lose. ⁵We need but seek it and it must be found. (A Course in Miracles, W-140.3:1–4:7;8:2-5. See also ACIM Lesson 140 Insights.)

We can never be without the Holy Spirit’s help. But we can make ourselves unaware of it. The ego busies our mind with myriad endless thoughts that we give meaning by our belief in them. It sends us on fruitless searches to find happiness in forms that have nothing to give. None of the ego’s offerings are real; but our willingness to believe in them stands as a barrier against awareness of the Holy Spirit’s presence.

Beyond these dreams lies the Voice for God, always ready to offer us the only real gift there is. We welcome His gift by quieting our minds. In peace His Voice is heard for we have set aside the chaos of the ego’s thoughts. In peace we meet the condition of awareness of Love’s presence, for peace is an attribute of Love.

We remember the Holy Spirit’s presence by pausing to connect with the peace within. In this peace we see the Love that has always been there, hidden by our belief that separation is real. In peace we see past illusions and dream a happy dream of Love. From this dream we easily awaken to our Home in Heaven.
