“BECOMING A LUCID DREAMER” is the topic for A Course in Miracles class on Thursday October 8, 7 p.m. at The Church Within.
“T-10.I.2. You are at home in God, dreaming of exile but perfectly capable of awakening to reality. Is it your decision to do so? . .What you see in dreams you think is real while you are asleep. Yet the instant you waken you realize that everything that seemed to happen in the dream did not happen at all. You do not think this strange, even though all the laws of what you awaken to were violated while you slept. Is it not possible that you merely shifted from one dream to another, without really waking?”
Please let me know if anyone would like to meet for dinner beforehand.
In my lucid dream, I behold a world
of seasons, cycles, time and change and nothing that endures.
Flowing like a stream, the images appear
to act out stories of a life beset with pain and fear.
Dreaming, I am dreaming of earth and sun and stars,
a universe of forms that say from God I’ve gone apart.
I’ve left His loving heart.
Into my lucid dream, the Spirit comes to guide
and teaches me that all I see are thoughts within my mind.
On perception’s screen are shadows of the past
and endlessly I summon them to try to make them last.
Dreaming, I am dreaming of anger, guilt and death.
But Spirit tells me, “Holy child, give Me your dreams to bless.
And I will give you rest.”
Within my lucid dream I call the Spirit’s Light
to wash my mind of fearful dreams and teach me I am Christ.
By His Voice redeemed, I share the joyous truth:
Because I made the world I see, it’s pain I can undo.
Dreaming, I am dreaming of what was never real.
And as I laugh the dream away, my mind is gently healed
by what the Light reveals.
