04-05-17 The Happy Dream
Description: We try and find happiness in relationships, jobs, and money, but all the while it seems just out of reach. So we continue to plan, hoping to find what we are looking for. But even our plans conflict because there always seem to be more options. The ego loves to plan, to keep us moving and second-guessing ourselves. It would always have us believe that we would be happy if only something were different than how it is now. And so we go along thinking that the next place, or the next job, or the next relationship will make us happy, believing there is something more than this moment.
Through A Course in Miracles, Jesus is offering us the means to stop following the ego’s plan and to begin following the Spirit’s instead. The “Happy Dream” is an experience in which we are fully trusting in the Divine, convinced that everything is taken care of through the following of intuitive guidance.
In this episode of Awakening to True Happiness, David shares parables of his own listening and following guidance, as he was unwound from the world’s way of thinking. He shares how he gained trust by listening to and following the Holy Spirit over and over, until he found himself abiding within a constant state of happiness and love.
This recording of David Hoffmeister took place on February 11, 2016 during the Happy Dream Retreat in Los Angeles.
