“I like the dreams of the future, better than the history of the past.”–Thomas Jefferson

“To hold fast to history is to be swept aside.”
–John F. Kennedy

I’m not psychic, but I’m pretty sure that 100 years from now (hopefully sooner), future generations are going to look back at our belief in separation and limits and wonder, “What were they thinking? How could they be so misinformed?”

They’ll scratch their heads at our refusal to use our innate power in much the same way we look back at the Roman Circuses. “Are you kidding me?” we think, “How could thousands of people sit around drinking wine and being entertained by lions ripping gladiators apart?”

They’ll consider it a laughable curiosity that we treated ourselves this way, that we chose to suffer when right on the other side of the veil is everything we could possibly want.

And it’s all so easy and natural. It’s just that our beliefs that we have no power blocks Truth.

My lesson in “A Course in Miracles” today is “Let me recognize my problems have been solved.” In a nutshell, it encourages me (and everyone else who is following along the Course this year) to free ourselves of problems that do not exist.

We literally weaken ourselves when we put all our energy into trying to figure everything out. By focusing on the process (the learning, the studying, the mindless activity) instead of putting our attention on what we REALLY WANT, we strip ourselves of our power.

In other words, we bring to the table the part of us that came up with the error in the first place. We actually buy that the “imposter,” the voice I call my “Inner Salieri” is where we’ll find answers.

The side effect of this ridiculous notion of limitation and separation is we live at half throttle. By not exercising and delighting in our inherent abilities, we fail to use our inherent gifts. We actually live out the outdated Roman Circus-like notion that we are weak and incapable of creating our lives.

Future generations will also consider it freakishly odd that we felt so guilty and didn’t have the fun and joy we are entitled to. They just won’t understand why we didn’t relish in our creative powers. They’ll puzzle,”They had this amazing gift and they left it sitting in the corner, unwrapped.”

For what it’s worth, future generations, I’m doing my part now (even as we speak) to get up every day, pronounce that something amazingly awesome is going to happen to me today and to spend my day in unadulterated wonderment at all the world’s blessings and miracles.

  1. Pam, I really like your ideas, and the construction of your posts. Very uplifting and insightful, except some of the visuals about people attempting suicide, or lions ripping gladiators apart. Those are a little more challenging to share.

  2. Pam, I love this because I fully believe that each generation gets a little bit better and our planet’s vibration keeps getting higher. When someone tells be thisngs are getting worse, I have to laugh. You can look for bad things and you will find them, but as a whole we are created better and better lives for ourselves.

  3. Yes! I love your article Pam! We ARE so powerful and we’ve forgotten that. Thanks for reminding us of the fact that we have it all within us- the power the answers and everything we could ever want! I’m doing my part too, to awaken to all my power and miracles of life.
