John’s reading of today’s post can be found here: http://johnsmallman2.wordpress.com/
Life is eternal, you are alive, and therefore you too are eternal Beings. There truly is no death. Yes, of course you lay down your illusory bodies as you leave the dream environment and return Home from your “travels,” but that is a glorious awakening into the brilliance of Reality.
Your forthcoming human awakening or Ascension is different because it will be a mass awakening in which you retain your bodies which are then restored to full vitality and perfection, with an age or physical appearance and abilities appropriate to it that suits your wishes.
In “A Course In Miracles” I talked of moving from the nightmare into a happy dream, and that is what is about to occur. Very many of you have been extremely dissatisfied with your Earthly lives, and to move into a “Happy Dream” is the next stage on your journey back to Reality. You cannot move fully into Reality while holding on to any energies, attitudes, or beliefs that are not in complete alignment with our Source, God, our heavenly Father, Love.
The Happy Dream is a state where all that you could desire is there for you. There is no need or possibility to compete or to fight to obtain your “just deserts,” all your needs and wants are met without in the least inconveniencing or “short changing” anyone else. It is an environment in which you can learn to relax, release your fears and anxieties, and realize that you have no need of those negative aspects of yourselves. You will live there in joy, happily developing your infinite creative abilities thus giving pleasure to all.
It is very hard for you to imagine a world in which there is no conflict, no mistrust, no disappointment, only harmonious co-operation for the good of all – a “good” with which all can identify irrespective of their race, color, culture, or creed. From that joyful state, when you feel ready, you can move all the way Home to join us in the spiritual realms.
But the state of being in this Happy Dream is very soothing, relaxing, even enchanting, and many of you will be in no hurry to move on. And that is just fine. God wants only your complete happiness, and seeing you in the Happy Dream enjoying yourselves gives Him enormous joy too.
This may sound to some of you like a change of plan, but I assure you that it is not. To describe in words the new environment into which you are about to be ushered is impossible. There is a very great difference between the Happy Dream and Reality, but from your human perspective or vantage point it is almost impossible for you differentiate between them purely because of the perspective limitations that your humanity imposes upon you. Consequently the Happy Dream will, for all of you, be a heavenly experience.
You will have no worries, no fears, no lack, in fact anything that you could imagine you might need to make you happy will be instantly at your disposal. But of course, because of your varied and harsh experiences in the illusion, it will take some time for you to adjust into a state of complete confidence in your safety and security.
You have all experienced abandonment and the intense pain it caused you, to a greater or lesser extent, and so it will take time for you to release all the ingrained suspicion that suggests to you that it could happen again. I assure you that it will not, in fact it cannot, but you will need time to accept that this is true, that abandonment, suffering, or betrayal can never, ever happen to you again.
Over many Earth lives within the illusion you experienced abandonment and betrayal, rescue from abandonment and betrayal, and then further abandonment and betrayal, and so it is difficult for you to release all the ingrained pain and suspicion that those experiences brought to you.
Many of you have helped with abandoned children – yes, there are still far, far too many of them on Earth right now, despite the enormous progress your collective has made in moving into Love – or pets, and so you are aware of how long it can take to rebuild their trust, and of how easily it can again be destroyed.
Well, in the state that is the Happy Dream, that breakdown of rebuilt trust and faith cannot recur. That trust and faith, that confidence that you are truly safe at last can only get stronger, it can never be weakened or destroyed. However, each of you will develop lasting trust at the pace that suits you best. No one will attempt to rush you, the pace of development that you choose will be wholly honored, always.
You are all intensely honored for what you have undergone during your many and varied Earth lives, and for the spiritual progress you have made in spite of all the obstacles, diversions, and general distractions that have frequently taken your attention away from the task in hand – Waking Up! The Love that surrounds you all is now making It’s inevitable and irresistible way into every human heart, and the effects of that are becoming ever more difficult to ignore or deny. It has been a long hard road, but the end is in sight.
Your loving brother Jesus.
