Talking and thinking trash no more

“The bliss, the wisdom, the creativity, the laughter, the friendships, the joy, the serenity and peace that have been, for the most part, seen as an impossible dream will become your most ordinary state of being.”– The Way of Mastery

Talking trash in my family was a definite no-no. Just saying the word “butt” was grounds for “the look” or, worse, a spanking

What WAS allowed, perhaps even encouraged, was THINKING trash as in, “I probably shouldn’t, I probably couldn’t, I better not.”

This trash thinking creates a cloud of debris (like Pig-Pen from the Peanuts cartoon) that blocks the universal flow.

ACIM Lesson 49 (God’s voice speaks to me all though the day) tells us there’s a part of our mind where stillness and peace reign whether we’re aware of it or not. It tells us this part of our mind is in constant communication with the Big Cheese and all its many gifts and blessings.

We don’t always recognize the stillness and peace, let alone God’s voice, because of the trash thinking. Unlike the cloud around Charlie Brown’s friend, our energetic cloud is largely invisible. But it’s just as effective at keeping the world’s goodness locked out of our life experience.

It’s why I attempt to keep my personal climate as pure and positive as possible. It’s why I get up every morning and declare, “Something extraordinarily epic is going to happen to me today.”

It’s why I meditate and actively look for blessings.

Practicing gratitude, more than penciling a written list, is to practice alchemy.

Looking for the good in life literally changes things. Physically changes things. Financially changes things. Mentally and emotionally changes things.

It literally changes atoms and rearranges molecules.

Cynics like to discount gratitude, downgrade it as sweet, nice, something for naive Pollyannas.

What I’ve discovered is that living on the frequency of joy and gratitude causes cataclysmic reverberations.”

  6. My life is slowly changing to a life of peace, happiness, and fulfillment. Every day I take stock in the blessings that are around me when i open my eyes.

  10. I will read this a couple of times tonight. I’m listening to your talk on Facebook about your last book which my daughter and I both have along with the rest of your books. Just sent friend request. Notice the photo not the name. Marlene aka Penny A. I have several aliases. Of course God speaks to me all day. I talk to God as well all day. just have to listen better but they aren’t words. Books fall off the shelf or the bed. Lots of ways the the Field speaks.

  11. You are so right. Love and appreciation for all of the possibilities we bring into being energize the flow of Grace Energy into this player we have designed for the current adventure. Let’s all keep imagining and appreciating into being an ever more loving and joy filled world. One Love and GOoD Cheers!

  13. Hi Pam,
    You have no idea how much I look forward to your posts. When things went south for me a couple of years ago, got laid off, my house flooded, insurance wouldnt cover it… I was at the worst place ever… What kept me going were your books. I would tell myself to hang on, I was getting out your books. I love doing ACIM with you, I dabbled in it for many years, but now I LOVE it. I imagine its difficult to find the time to write every day… so thank you thank you for taking the time!

  14. Pam I am so grateful for your daily postings on ACIM. You are translating the lessons so I can understand them so much fuller. Thank you!
