“Your being by nature is joy.”—Mooji
My motto is “smooth and easy.”
My signature party game (a practice I teach in my workshops) has two simple steps.
For those new to the party, here’s a link that explains it.
And as for the Course–while it seems really dense at times and bogged down in words–it can be summed up like this:
The universe has your back and everything’s going to be okay.
Everything else is just a big ruse that we, in our misguided thoughts, sent scouts out to retrieve from the field of infinite potentiality. In the Course, we learn to send scouts (AKA our beliefs, those all-powerful vibrating waves) in search of different things.
By practicing the lessons, we begin to “get it” that joy is our natural state. We begin to realize that fun is our guiding light and feeling good is our purpose. We even go so far to recognize that joy is why we’re here.
Lesson 19 is I am not alone in experiencing the effects of my thoughts
To reiterate yesterday, everything I think is being broadcast out to everyone on the planet. So when I allow my natural state of joy to emerge, my beautiful broadcast of happiness literally uplifts the world.
The same hum of joy resides in you. Sharing it is an important public service.
Since so many new folks have recently subscribed to this blog, I’m going to repost one of my all-time favorite YouTubes. It’s joyful proof that we are one. Or as Andrew Zimmern says, “The great thing about traveling is you begin to realize that people in grass skirts and people who speak in clicks are just like you.”
Pam Grout is the author of 19 books including E-Squared, E-Cubed, Thank & Grow Rich and her new book, Art & Soul,Reloaded: A Year-Long Apprenticeship to Summon the Muses and Ignite Your Daring, Audacious, Creative Side.
the link doesnt work can you please resend the link? “For those new to the party, here’s a link that explains it”
Just fixed it. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. Also, here again is the link: https://pamgrout.com/2012/12/06/a-a-2-0-the-hunt-for-amazing-awesomeness/
I am so thankful for all your books and posts. I printed out the “Something amazingly awesome . . ” quote and put it where I can see it every morning. I changed one word however, instead of happen “to” me I put happen “for” me. I just received your book “Art and Soul Reloaded” for my birthday this week.
So glad you got Art & Soul, Reloaded. I love that book. It’s one of my favorites.
This is beautiful! Thanks
Beauty. It’s why we’re here–to appreciate it and to create it.
<3! Thank you
Hey you Wonderful!!
This is so much fun going through the Workbook with you and everybody 🙂
So grateful it is happening now – the timing feels just right.
Here’s to a rockin’ weekend ~
Rockin’ weekend! Let’s all have one. Let’s rock this world with our big, beautiful hearts!
How amazing you soon realize that our minds are definitely joined if you just would notice.
You see I am another soul who decided to start the year committed to ACIM after having it for three plus years. And so it seems are many more.
And please don’t stop at Rockin’, I do believe we need to add some Rollin’ !!!!
And Thank you for spreadin’ the Love,
LOVED the video! Thanks so much for sharing that (and the HAPPY Minion video the other day). I look forward to your posts, and the videos just make them that much more fun.
Did someone say fun!!!
Hi Pam! Love hearing from you everyday. Thanks for the Youtube video link. That really touched me. One knows when one is in the right space by how one feels and this put me in the right space!
I love being in the right space. Or maybe I should say I LOVE knowing I’m in the right space. Because I always am.
Hi Pam… the first link in your article doesn’t work. Love your work and read EVERY email!!
Try it again. I have since fixed it.
Oh, my! Best video I’ve seen in days . . . weeks . . . years!
It’s my go-to video when I need a boost. I interviewed Matt for one of my National Geographic books. He’s a wonderful guy.
Thank you for those 11 words! I’ve been struggling with the course for over a year, and when I get ‘bogged down’ I just shrug and say, ‘The Universe loves me and has my back’ because I know that it does. Thank you for making me feel like less of a slacker! 🙂
It’s impossible to be a slacker, my friend. You are a beautiful energetic being who is creating miracles as we speak.
Hi Pam, I’m loving your posts! Thank you for making ACIM so much easier to understand. I look forward to receiving your blog in my inbox every day!
PS I know that you fixed the first link in your post but it’s still not working for me. Any suggestions about what else I can try? Thanks again!
Thanks so much for the encouragement. It means so much to me.
Thanks, Pam….GREAT video by Matt Harding. I really appreciate your emails!! Thank you!
Thanks for letting me know. It helps keep me motivated.
Thank you for another awesome post! I went back to the link and will copy and paste it in a sign for myself to read each day. The video made me cry even though I have seen it before. That amount of happiness had me on my feet clearing out clutter!!! I’m going to bookmark it and keep watching it. My attitude affects everyone I connect with, which affects the people they connect with and that trickles on and on. So what I think, is in essence affecting everything. Gotta clean up the old image maker.
That’s what we’re all doing–cleaning up the old image maker. Thanks for the great description!!
Love the video! Thanks! Sylvia

You’re so welcome!
Pam, Thanks for sharing this video again. I weep every time I see it. That’s the kind of world I want to live in. It reminds me to spread joy and leave the negative emotions behind.
Isn’t it the best? I could watch it daily.
Thank you! I can’t stop crying. We are all connected and I finally “get” it! Thank you a thousand times!!
That is fabulous! What a great video. So uplifting. Thank you, thank you for sharing it. Joy in abundance to you & everyone always😊
Hey Pam you are fabulously wonderful!! Thank you so much for sharing your joyful, delightful and inspiring view of life. Your posts motivate me to “live, love, laugh and be happy!” (Those are words from a song I think…) So if letting you know how much I love your work helps to motivate you, I’ll let you know every day because you are one of my favourite lights shining in the world today! The world needs YOUR light so we can all have the courage to shine OUR light. Thankyou. And Thankyou for that glorious dancing video. Love it! A beautiful joyful reminder of how we are indeed all one and really all just want to love, be loved and be happy. Amen sister! 😁
PS I googled those words I thought were from a song and took a trip down memory lane. The song is The Red Red Robin….by Al Johnson. I learned it in primary school. About 44 years ago I think! I think I’ll make it my motto – to “live, love, laugh and be happy” 😁💜🌺 Blessings galore to you dear Pam 🌝
Thank you. My take away from the first time I did ACIM is “fear not” and “only love”. I tatooed these two phrases from my journal onto the insides of my wrists. When I can drop out of fear and look at a situation thru the eyes of love, Im usually able to get things back into perspective. My personal mantra is “the Universe has my back and things are always working out for me”
Im so very much appreciating this blog journey with y’all!
SIMPY LOVE THAT VIDEO!!!!
“For those new to the party, here’s a link that explains it.”
But the link doesn’t work — Please fix.
wow, I WISH I got that from ACIM (“The universe has your back and everything’s going to be okay.”)…I’m getting that from other teachings (like Abraham-Hicks), but honestly, I had to stop ACIM b/c I felt worse and worse the more I got into it!!! (I stopped at Lesson 314)
That’s what’s so cool about all these different teachings. They all basically say the same thing, but they resonate with different people. It’s such a beautiful thoughts knowing there’s Truth for all.
