TheTaz Grout

222 Foundation

The Taz Grout 222 Foundation was launched to honor Tasman McKay Grout who spent 25 short years on the planet inspiring everyone who knew her to live and love better. Everything she stood for was some variation of this theme: create relentlessly, love fiercely and do quiet, kind things for the underdog.

Each year on February 22, the 222 Foundation awards a $12,222 grant to an innovative project or person with a big idea to change consciousness and therefore change the world.

We look for projects that support the following ideas:

1. A change in perspective is our greatest need. We believe all people (no exceptions) long to be generous and create beautiful things.

2. Today’s hopelessness is based on false premises. We look to defy the old story of scarcity, lack and the need to fight for resources. We aim to prove that the universe, once liberated from no-longer-working paradigms of scarcity, is generative and endlessly abundant.

3. The us against them model is kaput. We believe all humans are interconnected and that even tiny actions have great significance

Something amazingly awesome is going to happen to you today

There’s a new game in town

“Magic is done by hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it’s a feather bed.”—Terrence McKenna

Someone left this for me in Quebec. Thank you!!!!!

For anyone who follows me on FB, this blog post will come as no surprise. I happened to read a quote by Rick Rubin, the legendary music producer, that I loved SO MUCH that I posted it on my FB author page.

It was all about how we reduce Source and misperceive data. How our worldview is created from this very limited set of beliefs, most of which revolve around utility and survival.

Scientists even have a name for it: our DMN which stands for our Default Mode Network.

So, being who I am, I went down a Rick Rubin rabbit hole. I’ve ordered his book. I’ve listened to a couple of his podcasts and well, the reason he brings out the transcendent from a veritable who’s-who of musicians is because he believes in what he openly calls magic. There’s something that happens. It can’t be explained. Or predicted.

But the stage can be set by encouraging artists (and really anybody else who wants to live a life most extraordinary) to find space for things that don’t fit into our tiny little narratives (our DMN).

He also says the belief in an idea (say a particular song or style of music) is more important that the truth in the idea.

What we call “truth” comes from “I know” mind. And “I know mind” is extremely limiting.

Thankfully, it’s not the only game in town. Sure, our rational selves have built up a lot of history, a lot of armaments.

But there is SO. MUCH. MORE.

And that’s my intention: to escape “I know mind.” To be released from all limitations, all identities, all DMN’s.

And since I’m also a sucker for a good story, here’s a recent email I particularly liked:

“As you know, I traveled to Spain this summer to visit my son who was studying in Seville. I brought your E2 book along and was doing the experiments.

“I was conducting Experiment #2 and put it out there I wanted to find some wheat while in Seville. Don’t know why I chose this, maybe my Kansas farm girl coming out. My husband, son and I were touring the Cathedral de Sevilla and it was truly awe inspiring–filled with great paintings, tile work, carvings, etc. Everything was on such a grand scale. I was searching for wheat in any of the art forms but was not seeing any.

“Right before we left there was a display of one of Spain’s saints. Right there in the display was REAL WHEAT. Not a picture of wheat, but the real deal. I had seen no other plant life inside the cathedral before this.

“The added bonus of the day was that I saw another Kansas crop in Seville. I saw Bar Alfalfa that night while wondering around the alleys. Alfalfa is not a common name, so it took me by surprise. Apparently there is an Alfalfa District in Seville too!”

So, friends. Your choice. DMN or miracles!

If you only knew

“I feel nothing but deep gratitude to be part of this whole cosmic mess.”—Nick Cave

One of my possibility posses is currently running a month-long experiment. The question we’ve posed is this: “What would life be like if we knew just how deeply loved and forgiven and taken care of we really are?”

If we knew this fact beyond a shadow of a doubt, how would we approach each day?

With nothing to fear or worry over or question, the only reasonable expenditure of time would be to just stop and enjoy everything this astonishingly beautiful world has to offer.

The only reason life so often seems the polar opposite of our “hypothesis” is because we’ve been programmed to believe the polar opposite. From the time we’re born, we’ve been trained into a life story that tells us we are each a separate self, competing with all the other separate selves in a world that’s dominated by scarcity.

And, unfortunately, the brain is partial to its old patterns and familiar pathways and goes out looking for things to affirm them.

Which is why I continue to share miracles stories, to keep reminding myself and others of things that aren’t rational or “normal” or conform to what we’ve been taught.

Here are three I heard last week:

  1. Eighteen years ago, when he was 21, “Joe” was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He was given a few months to live. Doctors wanted him to immediately begin chemo. He said, “no.” Rather than put “that poison” as he called it, into his body, he proclaimed he was healthy and free. That, he said, was his divine right as a perfect child of God. Well, guess where “Joe” was when he shared this story nearly two decades later? Hiking the Appalachian trail.
  2. The second story is from a woman who had attended a Zoom pop-up possibility posse back in 2022. At the time, she had just been admitted into a long covid clinic in Montana where she was told her lung function was 50 percent. She was having to move back to her mom’s home in Minnesota. Well, when she wrote to me last week, she was currently in the Caribbean island of Dominica, having a blast and getting ready to travel to Peru.
  3. Lastly is a story from a woman who had read the first version of E-Squared. While doing the Volkswagen Jetta experiment, she skipped right over yellow cars and butterflies and decided to look for luxury BMW X’s. Sure enough, she spotted many during the 48-hour experiment, but within a few weeks, she was also presented with “an offer she couldn’t refuse” to see one every day in her own garage. Yes, she now owns a BMW X.

So friends, I ask you today–what would your life be like if you threw aside the limited narrative your brain keeps weaving? What if you knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that you were deeply, deeply loved, 100 percent safe and always being looked after?

Why not ditch the old stories and find out!

Might as well accept the truth about yourself

“There is an ever present goodness threading through the natural world, evident in every act of kindness and love made visible.”—Carrie Newcomer  

On the plane ride home from Spain, I fell in love with a pair of four-year-old twin girls, wearing matching flowered dresses.

We first met in the Madrid airport where they had ingeniously created their own playground behind the airport terminal seats.

I couldn’t help but watch as they skipped, giggled and chased each other, exuding a natural sense of joy.

And I began to wonder. If that’s how little humans come into this world, wouldn’t it make sense that a 40-year-old or a 60-year-old, with considerably more years to enjoy their life, would be even more bubbly and gleeful? With normal development, seems they’d be ecstatic by now.

Today’s Course in Miracles lesson says that’s not just theoretical. If we can accept the truth about ourselves and allow our natural light to shine, we, too, can experience a natural sense of joy.

In fact, we already have it. It’s just temporarily covered up by all our crazy thoughts and beliefs. Over the course of our lives, we gather up a lot of ideas about who we are, what we’re capable of, what is possible.

But everything we have picked up and put into our belief basket is just a story that hides our inner four-year-olds, secretly grinning with love.     

Have the best weekend of your lives, my loves. I adore you and am just so grateful for each and every one of you who takes the time to read my crazy musings.

Bursting with possibilities

The things we believe carry a charge.”—Rick Rubin  

Joyous 222nd day of the year. I’m still in Spain on my ‘book tour’ and my sister is here for a week before commencing a trek on the Camino de Santiago.  

Yesterday, we visited two archaeology museums, one showing the ancient Roman Theater I mentioned a couple blog posts ago and the other, the site of a Phoenician settlement from roughly 1100 B.C. Both were fabulous.  

Archaeologists at the Phoenician site, because they’re only able to excavate a small section, are unable to determine a lot of important facts. Yes, they can tell the age of the pottery shards and the bones, but they can’t even begin to speculate about population size, for example. There’s simply not enough data.  

Which is how I feel about any assumption or judgment I might be tempted to make. I don’t have enough data to accurately know that so and so is “wrong.”  Or that such and such shouldn’t have happened.  

In our human minds, we often conclude we have everything figured out, that we know exactly how things should be. But never do we have all the “facts.”  

The only “fact” we can absolutely know for sure is that the Universe, the Dude is going to show up with amazing, beautiful, perfect gifts.

If—and this is key–we don’t block it with erroneous assumptions we’ve made from the tiny section of life we have so far let into our awareness.  

Whenever we judge, whenever we resist, whatever we think we have figured out is never the whole picture.

All we can ever really know is that, when it comes to the Dude, peace, joy, freedom and love will always be the only items on the menu.  On that, we can depend.

Wonderful beyond imagination

“It is quite possible to leave your home for a walk in the early morning and return a different person—beguiled and enchanted.”—Mary Ellen Chase  

One of my favorite things about traveling is that I don’t have a car.

Here in Cadiz, I take long walks beside the beach. To the market. Through the park.  

Walking opens up a bigger world than the one allowed through the modern lens of seeing.

It reaches beyond our normal habits of zooming by, minds awhirl, barely noticing life’s countless gifts. In a car, I’d never see the neon pink hibiscus, the lime green parrots flitting in and out of palm trees, the gleeful children chasing seagulls.

When you walk, life extends beyond its normal constraints. It seems rife with possibility, infected with infinity.  

Which also happens to be the intention of my writing, both here on the blog and in my books.

As many of you may know, today, August 1, is the debut of the 10-year-anniversary of E-Squared. It was my 16th book, but the first to fly off into the stratosphere, having, at last count, been translated into 40 some languages.  

Although I’ll never know for sure which powerful genie took that book under its watchful care, I often credited it to the affirmation I etched into the beach on Tybee Island, Georgia.

On New Years Eve 2012, one month before it debuted, I wrote with a big stick in the sand: E-Squared will be an international bestseller. And then I let the waves take it out into the universe.  

This morning, as the sun was rising here in Cadiz, I took another big stick and wrote yet another beach affirmation. This one said: E-Squared=Peace and Freedom for All.

That’s my highest hope. That it will open new possibilities, that it will shift the balance of the world from separation and limitation towards authentic freedom and love. In other words, towards who we really are.

Some of you asked about the E-Squared Pop-up Party being curated by the inimitable Lisa Natoli.

Here’s the scoop from the email she sent out to her pals:  

I am a Pam Grout super-fan – and I recently heard that her book E-Squared has been updated with a 10-year anniversary edition. I GOT ALL EXCITED!!  

I did all 9 of the experiments 10 years ago when the book first came out and every day and every experiment was mind-blowing and magical.   

It was like being a kid again. It’s a very playful book and it will bring you back to being a child again.   

So when I heard that there was an updated version, I knew I wanted to do these 9 experiments again.   

My initial idea was that I would do it by myself. I love reading and it was just going to be my own private book study.   

But then I thought: WHY NOT INVITE OTHERS TO JOIN?????    Why not create a book study group??   

Why not throw a party??   

So I have created a pop-up Facebook group for the month of August 2023 for the Pam Grout E-Squared book.   

It’s free. It’s private. But you do need to be on Facebook. And you do need a copy of the book or the audio version.   

Pop-up means this is a temporary group – it will be up for the month of August – it’s a place for us to share our experiences with Pam’s book.   


If that’s you … come join me and others on Facebook.    Here is the link to request to joinhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/pamgrout

All my love to you,


So you are officially invited to join the party. But most of all, I want you to know, I remain forever grateful and overjoyed to be part of the extraordinary awakening happening right here on Planet Earth.
