In A Course in Miracles Jesus stresses the importance of mind training and becoming conscious of our thoughts. This is what will help lead us out of our fearful state of wrong mindedness and into the blissful awareness of right mindedness or alignment with the Spirit. Other topics include forgiveness, and how to move through the highs and lows that may be experienced on this journey.
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.
