The Joy of True Freedom – The theme of transcending compromise and experiencing true freedom came forth in this session in Finland. All expectations and judgments arise from the self-concept that was made to take the place of reality. The purpose of forgiveness stabilizes perception. Open and expand from littleness to magnitude in awareness to allow true extending of God’s Love to pour through.
The Spirit’s purpose for this life is for freedom, to wake up from the dream of the world, not to attain and achieve. The ego’s use of the body, of family and education, is for reinforcing a personal separate identity. But you are Spirit and must unlearn everything the ego has taught you. Your only responsibility is accepting the correction. It is not about dropping worldly responsibilities, but having them all handed to Spirit who would address them through a path of miracles. David says the Course can be summed up in the Serenity Prayer, recognizing what you can and cannot control and the wisdom to know the difference. What you can control is your state of mind. What you cannot control is the world, and everything associated with the world. Have gratitude and appreciation for everybody, because they are helping you to forgive.
In this interview David talks about his own journey and how much fun it has been, giving practical examples of how the Spirit has worked so playfully in his life. He shares with us how following guidance has led to building trust in the Holy Spirit as His path leads to happiness, peace of mind, and a truly joyful life.
Jesus and the Holy Spirit want us to be happy and can use anything in our lives to help lead us to this experience; any thought or feeling that is not of supreme joy can be used. David describes in this talk some of the dialogues that he had with Jesus years ago when he was unwinding from the ego thought system. The workbook lessons of A Course in Miracles are extremely practical and are a powerful tool to help you experience consistent peace of mind.
This talk delves into the stillness and joy of mysticism. We are reminded that unlike what we may have been taught, we have just one responsibility and that is to simply be happy. As our minds let go of other worldly responsibilities and concerns, we discover that everything has been provided for our happiness with no exceptions.
