“You are a creative genius who came here to express yourself.”—Esther Hicks
I mentioned in yesterday’s blog my intention for everyone (no exceptions) to get a seat at the table.
But I decided an even better intention is to build a whole new table. Which sorta leads to Lesson 21: I am determined to see things differently.
The old table is like that old gum I also mentioned yesterday. It’s old news. Its juice has been sucked out, it’s basically been-there-done-that-no-thanks.
The old table is reductionist, judgmental, a know-it-all. And it’s likely to have the same number of seats, just different players.
At the new table, we attend to the bigger, non-visible world. We trust that it’s every bit as alive as the material world. We have faith that the new story, the inclusive, everyone belongs story is really just a matter of re-engineering reality.
And we know that we have the power to do it. We know we can envision a different reality.
It doesn’t even have to be hard. Unless we choose to see it that way.
I herby resolve to quit staring at the old reality, to quit treating it as if it’s a circus freak show.
It’s only there because I and a lot of other people on Planet Earth have put our attention upon it. When we resist and oppose and throw our hands in the air, we basically give our energy to the old gum. We say to the universe “more please.”
I want my new table to be expansive, to recognize unlimited possibilities and ongoing creation.
We are here, you guys, to expand, to create. Not just art, but all the time. In all ways. As the subtitle on my latest book suggests, we are here to ignite our daring, audacious, creative side.
Today, as we are determined to see things differently, let us know that true creation, new creation is why we’re here.
P.S. Whoever drew this cute little illustration of E-Squared, thank you–I absolutely LOVE IT!!!

I just really love your posts about the Course. I never understood it. Now I finally am understanding. I can see the light! Thank you again!
So glad! Just know the Course is one of thousands of roads toward the light. It just happens to be mine.
Hey Pam, you’ve posted in “my time”! 😁 Usually I receive the email for your blog about 4 hours or more after you’ve posted it because I’m in Australia and the email arrives in the middle of the night for me. But here I am at 8.30am in Melbourne reading your post only 20 minutes after your email arrived! And it looks like I’m the first to comment- another first! 😁 Anyway, Thankyou so very much for these daily posts about ACIM. They are so helpful. Your work is unique and so inspiring and I’m so glad I found you 😊 And I’m determined to see things differently so that I can express my “daring, audacious creative side” and truly, creatively live! Amen! Blessings galore to you dear Pam! ⭐️
I adore you and yur work so much and look forward to all your blog posts. So when I read the title of your post today all I could do was laugh out loud…because, you know…the Universe. The reason why is that I had a dream last night that stuck with me throughout the day that I could not understand, until your post. What happened was I was in a restaurant for a meeting with people I did not know but the table kept moving and getting rearranged. Then the last movement,, my old broker was there and he said “there is not a seat for you at the table”. I was not upset, but said “the, well I need to go”. Until your post I did not get it, it truly is time for me to let the past go and to find my new magnificent table. Thank you, you are the awesomest. Sending you light and love, C
I love all of your books and have had an E2 moment or two. I love the positive vibes that jump off every page.
Now, I’m loving the daily posts, with the corresponding Course lessons.
Gracias (I’m learning Espanol)
I have been looking for a new job lately. I have been here for 11 years and I have been concentrating on all the bad things. Thank you for showing me that there are many things I DO love about my job. I will focus on them. You’re blog means so much to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I’ve been following this blog for a while but it’s taken on a whole new meaning for me since you decided to post daily commentary on ACIM. I have half-hearted follow ed the Course for years though never once completed the full year. I think this time, with this blog, I just might do it!
i am missing a couple of lessons the last one in your blog that have read was lesson 12 or 13. i know there is a link to read each lessons. but what i miss is your way of talking about those lessons here in your blog.
I love the idea of a new table. I’m laughing at the concept. So perfect and fits in perfectly with what’s going on in my life at the moment. I’m loving the Course of Miracles because you make it FUN! Thank you!
I’m very late today but I couldn’t miss this. I love the concept of a brand new table. Like a brand new paradigm. That’s really what has to happen. Never as easy as it looks but I’m giving it more energy now so this is really helping. I REALLY am determined to see things differently. So many things I’m reading these days are helping with a little help from the side I can’t see. 🙂
Yeah….the drawing of e2 made me smile. Thank you.
SO needed this this morning, Pam. Thank You!
