“All right is almost always where we eventually land, even if we fuck up entirely along the way.”–Cheryl Strayed
I decided to headline today’s blog post with those words of wisdom, not because it’s exactly the topic I’ll be discussing, but because those two intentions match mine.
My topic today is Gabrielle Bernstein’s e-Course “God is my publicist.” Hay House gifted me with this three-week lecture partly, because they’re really cool folks, but mostly because they figured it would help promote my books. I was lucky enough to meet Gabby last year in London and she was recklessly generous enough to write the forward to E-Cubed.
Unlike some publicity campaigns that require big budgets, weekly strategy sessions and countless pleas to the media powers-that-be, Gabby’s course suggests appointing God to handle the details.
That doesn’t mean sitting around polishing your nails and refusing to pick up the phone when say, Oprah calls. It means making a rigorous practice of connecting with the big guy and asking that your message reach the folks who need it. As she points out, the possibilities to connect and make an impact are endless.
Endless possibilities, as far as I’m concerned, is a synonym for God, even though many of us hooked that word up long ago with the exact opposite.
God, to use the synonym I refer to in my book, is the FP (or the Field of Infinite Potentiality). I devoted my life to the FP many years ago. I appointed it the CEO of my career and, so far, it hasn’t let me down. It’s enabled me to write 17 books and create a life without “a real job” for more than 20 years. It’s enabled me to make a living on my wit and my craft.
I believe the only thing keeping anyone apart from the FP is their own walls and judgments.
Judgment, I was relieved to find out, is not my function. Surrender to the FP is really my only job. The less I try to do on my own, the better my life becomes.
Gabby’s other potent publicity strategy is sending love to potential customers….in my case, readers.
She reminds us that all of us have a mission and, no matter what we think it might be, it always involves love. Expansion. Beauty. Joy. So, dear readers, whoever you might be, I send you heartfelt appreciation and, yes, love which is the only thing that’s real.

I love how the perfect words I need come to me in one way or another. Have a really amazing day, my friend!!!

Hi Pam, great post!
Just wanted to share that I’m always seeing trucks that have names on them like; PAM, E, or Matrix. They always make me think of you and how fun it is to look for signs from the universe.
Gabby Bernstein is my hero! I have Gabby quotes all around me; she is an excellent mentor of generosity. I also want to say that YOU are awesomely generous creating such wise and fun blog posts on a regular basis for the world to relish in! I come to your website again and again for inspiration. You are an amazing gift — your words, your energy! Sending my very best energy your way! P.S. The interview you did with Todd & I is the “replay of choice” that we go to whenever we have to miss a live day on the radio. People love it!!! XOXO
Thank you, Pam!
Yes — love is what really matters and what is real.
You are so awesome Pam!!! I’m so blessed and happy you’re in my life! You have taught me SO much. Sending loads of love right back to ya! :))
Hello Pam, This is Vilma from Sunnyvale, the $1 notes. It’s been awhile. Just wanted to say that I keep going back to E-Cubed Whenever I meet my challenges and not manifesting. I get so encouraged again and again, My entire life lights up. I know what’s important in my life has to manifest. I’m letting it flow.
I just wanted to say thank you.
Also, learning about humanity and the nature of life through your books and others, I have come to realize that we are all in this together. Whatever religion people practice or life path they choose, it’s ok. All people have their learning path and the point is to be happy and fulfilled every step of the way.
Thank you, Vilma
Manifesting now FP

Why would you use the F word? That has lowered my positive image of you so much. So unprofessional!
Hi Pam, Brilliant post and very timely! As my inbox gets flooded with various marketing invitations all relating to how ‘others did it’….I am reminded how simple and consise it actually all is….God, (or my personal fave ‘FP’) as the CEO of my business! THANK YOU for the reminder!!! Love and Blessings, Kim (from Matrix) 🙂
Thank you FP , and PAM xoxo
I want to e-mail you, dear Pam, but I don’t know how! Love from Buenos Aires.
hi Pam! I just got your book and I am on experiment number three, which I did this morning. Wowsa this was seriously the coolest thing ever and incredibly eye-opening. Thank you for your remarkable wisdom and sharing. Feeling the love and excited to continue this journey.
Thanks Pam, right back at ya! I really appreciate you + your newsletters + receiving your love!
Choose not to focus on what’s missing from your live, but be grateful for the abundance that’s present!

Hi Pam, another golden post, thank you! Great to hear you are writing another E installment- can’t wait! A quick question- I’m doing ACIM and am around lesson 70, dealing with Salvation. Are you able to give me/us your take on salvation please? Is the idea of Salvation being able to follow your FP guidance to ‘punch above your weight’ while having a deep knowingness that you have the FP right beside you? Thanks Pam, it is wonderful having someone who can explain all off these profound concepts in such a simple, creative and honest way. Thank you for sharing your message- you are awesome!

Yesterday (13 April) was the 18th anniversary of my mother’s death (murder). Of course I was thinking about her all day, and, just in passing, thought it might be nice to get a sign she was still around.
Today I checked your site and saw the heading of this post, and thought, Holy shit! (Sorry, Jon D.) Recklessly generous and relentlessly kind describes my mother perfectly. I was, as the Brits say, gobsmacked. Goosebumps! A huge, blinking neon sign.
Then I thought, why is it that a passing thought will often manifest, when the things we (I) picture, visualize, ask for (again & again), let go and wait for (for years, in my case) never materialize? Just wondering . . .
