A few nights ago, I had a strange dream.

I was wandering around a town in Northern Virginia, a town I lived in many years ago. The town was built around a man-made lake called Lake Anne. I was searching for the lake as I aimlessly wandered about.

Several times, I stopped to ask people if they knew where Lake Anne was. No one did.

Finally, I came across a beautiful young woman sitting on a rock. I asked her if she knew where Lake Anne was. All she said was, “You know.”


One of Johnny’s and Berna’s favorite books is A Course in Miracles. In Lesson 160, the course says “I am at home. Fear is the stranger here.”

You have all been looking for your home ever since you incarnated into physical bodies. Of course, that was part of your motive when you took on a physical body again—to taste the experience of separation.

Every thing, every person, every object you see with your physical eyes is a symbol of separation. Yet, every thing, every person, every object you see is an illusion if you are seeing only with physical eyes.

You must look beyond what you think you are seeing with your physical eyes. You must realize true vision will never be available with your physical eyes. Those eyes see only the illusion, the dim shadow of the real world.

Your real world is the world of Spirit, the world of God. It is your true home. The home you never left except in your wild imaginings. You are home now. The only thing preventing you from seeing that is fear.

So quit searching and just open your eyes—the eyes through which God sees. As the young woman in Johnny’s dream said, “You know.” You know you have already arrived.

Your seemingly endless search for home has now ended. You have never left home. You can let go of the search and return to that place of peace, the true home you never left.

All is well.

In this video, Marianne Williamson gives us a slightly different perspective of our spiritual home than what Spirit talks about above.
