Rolling in ecstasy

“Be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”—Franz Kafka

1dWhen I was growing up, television programming ended at midnight. The National Anthem was played and then a black and white test pattern popped up until programming resumed the next morning.

Today, of course, there’s not a minute when the airwaves aren’t broadcasting. Never stops. Never ends.

The same can be said about Source. There’s never a lapse. The Divine Buzz never ceases transmitting guidance, blessings, signs and miracles.

I, on the other hand, frequently tune into a different channel. Let’s just call it the grievance channel, the channel where something is not quite right.

That’s why in ACIM Lesson 84 (and over and over throughout this Course), I’m reminded that my true identity is love and that any grievance, any tiny little complaint, any mad idea that something is wrong brings up the black and white test pattern.

Only instead of RCA that created the original test pattern, we each make up a test pattern of grievances to air on our personal screen. And then we continue to watch the damned thing over and over again.

These grievances that obscure the Divine Buzz are often subtle, so subtle we don’t even recognize we’re running them. That’s why I always ask for help, why I turn my day over to the Holy S who knows how to create extraordinarily epic.

Today, I commit to let go of my grievance-ridden test pattern. I claim my true identity as Love so I can broadcast Source’s channel of luminosity, beauty and never-ending joy.

  1. This morning on my memories on Facebook was my friend, Marian, singing her original song, “The Real Revolution Was Love”. Your reminder that “every little tiny complaint is a grievance” is a wonderful reminder to use that easy button, wand, and ho’oponopono to turn them back to love. I never thought I would LOVE the Course of Miracles but now I do, thanks to your loving words, Pam Grout. I’m feeling the tears and the love as I type this.

    Thank You!

  2. A helpful teaching, Pam. There is a certain top politician that I despise. Why am I following the damn dude? Far time to release & focus on my happy.

  3. Wow Pam! Thankyou! You have such a delicious way with words. You paint a glorious picture that is not only easy to understand but is often funny, always interesting, and definitely inspiring. I remember the days of the black and white test pattern, and I totally love that analogy. Thankyou for all the tools you’re giving us to help us live in love 😁💖🌷💕
