Often students are disappointed when they feel no contact by the Holy Spirit. The course teaches us that Holy Spirit is always speaking to us but we are not listening. I think that even more so we fail to recognize that Holy Spirit is “speaking” to us because often it is not a voice.
The course teaches that when we hear the Holy Spirit we feel joy and peace. Ever look at a beautiful sunset and feel joy or a deep peaceful connection? This is the Holy Spirit speaking to us. Ever all of a sudden notice a sign or words that seem to give an answer? The Holy Spirit never criticizes, cajoles, or makes you feel bad. If the “message” makes you feel bad most likely it is the ego masquerading with “helpful” words that bring guilt or worry.
The Holy Spirit can even talk to you in dreams. I recently had a dream where I was one of four teachers split up into four different parts of a room with students at our tables. I was waiting for the Holy Spirit to come over to my table to begin the instruction. I suddenly realized that I could start the teaching and immediately felt a little guilty for not having done so. The Holy Spirit at the other table immediately said “That’s OK”, assuring me I have done nothing wrong. I felt better and was ready to begin the class. This dream was evidence to me that it was OK to participate in instruction any time. The Holy Spirit is nearby and will be there to help no matter wether I feel ready or not.
As you go to bed and also when you rise have a small conversation with the Holy Spirit and ask for help to listen. You only need the willingness- God always is speaking his Word to you.
