Wouldn’t it be cool if_________!!!

“To know yourself as the Being underneath the thinker is freedom.”–Eckhart Tolle
Psst! All you Course in Miracles fans. I had a revelation today. I realized that the reason the big, blue doorstop never gets read is because readers get stuck on all the words and throw the proverbial baby out with the dishwater.

Today’s lesson, ACIM 199 is one of those WTF lessons. It immediately triggers a reaction.

What do you mean I’m not a body? I have mirrors. I see the wrinkles, the cellulite. This books is utterly ridiculous!

And down it goes!

This lesson happens to be the one that’s repeated most often so I decided I’d better point out what it really means.

My body is sorta cool and all. It’s very useful when taking selfies. It’s kinda fun to dress it up, match it with shoes and earrings.  But it’s more like a cage than a real thing.

So forget that part of this lesson. Focus on the “I am free” part of it.

For example, I am free to pick a different reality today.

I am free to let go of all those made-up rules I learned as I was growing up.

I am free to create my life at will.

I am free, especially from the limitations of my body.

The body, for the most part, represents the egoic mind, the part that believes you can only be one place at a time, the part that believes your thoughts are private, the part that believes everybody (or at least the everybodies that aren’t in you contacts)  is out to get you.

When you claim your freedom, there is really only one question to pose: “Wouldn’t it be cool if__________!!!

Whatever follows that declaration is what you’re creating. You can continue to look at the world you see now OR you can create a new one. The one we see now is old news, it’s what we created over the past few decades. It’s one of many superpositions in the quantum field. It’s no more permanent than a peach.

We can create a new reality. But first we have to realize that we are free to do that. We have to quit staring at what appears to be. We have to start imagining.

Wouldn’t it be cool if we all realize how much we really love each other?

Wouldn’t it be cool if we spent our days expressing our creativity?

Wouldn’t it be cool if every person was housed and fed and aware of his freedom?

I love you guys so much. Thanks for joining me on this journey. I’d love to hear your “Wouldn’t it be cool if_____’s!!! in the comments section below.

Life is supposed to be extraordinarily epic! As we begin to recognize that truth, the same ole, same ole will wither and die from lack of use, from lack of attention.

  1. Wouldn’t it be cool if I could really focus on getting fit by changing bad eating habits, and wouldn’t it be cool if I could again focus on reading and practicing more of what I Teach, (Pilates) so that I can be the better, best at it because I know I’m good but I want to be better

  2. Wouldn’t it be cool if we all realize how much power we have to create the future we wish to see- the power of love and the prosperity of peace?

  3. I love you so much, Pam! Wouldn’t it be cool if your new book on A Course in Miracles became a NY bestseller and millions of people who had given up on ACIM benefitted?

  4. Wouldn’t it be cool if my friend and I became lovers and teammates! (We’ve been dancing around each other for a little bit now. I haven’t had a long term relationship since my ex-fiance a billion years ago and he is in a similar boat, lol!)

    Ps thanks for making A Course in Miracles so digestible! Big blue doorstep indeed, haha!

  5. Wouldn’t it be cool if everyone was as inspiring as you Pam Grout! Thanks so much for all you share! I love your vibration and everything you write! You really break it all down, and articulate the laws & lessons of the universe like no one else! ❤️

  6. Wouldn’t it be cool if I could enjoy my unexpected life right here right now (helping my son raise four kids ages 6 5 4 3) instead of sadly yearning for the freedom and travel I dearly desire for my retirement?

  7. Wouldn’t it be cool if I could embrace my unexpected life change (helping my son raise his four kids ages 6 5 4 3, Mommy left) instead of sadly yearning for the freedom and travel I have dreamed of for my retirement?

  8. Wouldn’t it be cool if All Creatures Great and Small were treated with much love and kindness!

  9. It would most definitely be cool if we could be mindful enough to replace fear with love whenever we are concerned about something (and before firing off a WTF? text) 😉

    • Laughing at my typos let’s try this again. Wouldn’t it be cool if no one saw my typos!

      Wouldn’t it be cool if my dream publisher called me begging me to publish my book?! Woohoo

  10. Wouldn’t it be cool if you read the book I am just finishing and will be self publishing soon – since I mention you in chapter 5 – that is titled – Be Grateful?

  11. Love this!
    Wouldn’t it be cool if all wars on earth stopped right now and no war ever started ever again?!
    Wouldn’t it be cool if every single person did what they loved and expressed themselves fully and freely every day?!
    Wouldn’t it be cool if all children in the world today were encouraged to shine their own unique light and were loved fully and completely exactly as they are! Yeah!
    Wouldn’t it be cool if everyone knew that it was easy to get what you need so they wouldn’t have to beg or steal to survive?!
    Ah I could go on for ever with this! So I’ll finish with one last one –
    Wouldn’t it be cool if I knew how loveable, beautiful and amazing I am, and lived as though I knew that?! Yeah!!
    Thanks Pam for your fabulousness and for inspiring us all with your delicious understanding and explanation of ACIM. You rock! 😁

  12. Wouldnt it be cool if i didnt have to go to work tomorrow because i won a huge amount of dosh and no longer had to. Oh yes.
    Wouldn’t it be cool to feel connected to nature and spirit again.
    Wouldn’t it be cool to see miracles everywhere?
    Wouldn’t it be cool if i felt creatiive and inspired again?

    • Oh, do I wish we could talk! Wouldn’t it be cool if we could all just connect on a level of unconditional love and compassion to help one another thrive without fear of any one of us wanting anything from another? You ARE connected to Spirit! You have simply forgotten due to all the other stuff that’s gotten in your way. Let go! You are magnificent and worthy of greatness.

  13. Wouldn’t it be cool if life was always easy, I was free to spend every day as I wish and infinite abundance was always flowing with me!

  14. I was eating a peach just as I read your awesome blog-made me laugh out loud and take a look at that peach!

  15. Wouldn’t it be cool if I had fun, creative design jobs keep flowing to me! And wouldn’t it be amazing to look into my eyes, deep in my soul and feel the love of source!

  16. Wouldn’t it be cool if we no longer needed disease to show us we are going the way that does not benefit us. I love the big blue doorstop. It has great information, I just don’t know how to translate. Thank the Universe you are bilingual. Giant hugs and deep gratitude.

  17. Wouldn’t it be cool if every person became blind to the exterior of everyone else and could only see the glory of their spirit.
    Wouldn’t it be cool if there was never anything called “poverty” and everyone had the financial means to live in dignity.
    Wouldn’t it be cool if every person celebrated our differences instead of focusing on them with such negative energy.
    Wouldn’t it be cool if each of us could realize we are God.

    • Wow! YES!!!! The Divine spark which each one of us carries inside us (spirit/soul) is what connects us. Loving ourselves from the Inside Out…that’s the title of a presentation I give. Reminding each one of us that the exterior is simply a distraction. The connection to one another is on the inside. It’s our job to remember not to be distracted by the external stuff….and to look beyond, to remember that we are all ONE!

    • I used to work to make a living. NOW, I live to make a difference! I finally found my passion and am sharing it with everyone I come into contact with. Offering people the opportunity to live in both their highest physical and financial health possible. And, it’s fun! And yes….I love it! Happy to share if you’re interested in hearing.

  18. Wouldn’t it have been cool if Pam Grout had written the big blue doorstop! Thanks for finally making it easy! I have studied esoteric literature…but that Course I have never gotten through…to many words that only confuse the issue. Thanks for putting it all in simpler terms.

  19. Wouldn’t it be cool if there was a sudden shift & all the mortals realized that they were actually immortal.

  20. I fell in love with you all over again, just now! I have had the Blue doorstop in my possession for over 30 years, started it 4 or 5 times , put it back in front of the door.. please walk us through the rest of it!! ❤

    • My big blue doorstop is actually green, and was left at my home by someone passing through. I’ve tried many times to access the gems that I am sure are there inside, but have always been defeated by the language and a certain air of piousness. Thanks Pam, for making it accessible.

  21. Wouldn’t be cool if I easily sold my mobile home, packed all my stuff, moved closer to my son, and completed my next book on how I recovered from a sexual assault.

  22. Wouldn’t be cool if I was able to get 10 paid clients for my social impact journey in November, all awesome women and I found a sponsor to sponsor 2 influencers!!

  23. I came up with. A great idea. Look in the mirror once in the morning do whatever you like re; makeup or not and than do not look in the mirror again for the entire day.
    This technique has brought me closer to realizing I am a spiritual being.

  24. Wouldn’t it be super cool if I could break away from my Corp job, open my dream business and be my own boss.

  25. Oh, so so many! Wouldn’t it be cool if people regularly went around hugging and high-fiving each other all over the place. Wouldn’t it be cool if doing random acts of kindness was our national pasttime (baseball’s cool too.) Wouldn’t it be cool if all of our elected officials and people who worked in the justice system had the softest, sweetest hearts and cared about ALL people. Wouldn’t it be cool if we all knew that this is a infinitely abundant universe, so we could all give and share and love without fear. And a silly one: Wouldn’t it be cool to be able blink our eyes and travel anywhere in the world.

  26. ….I could help LGBTQ children, teens, and family love themselves and destroy the myth that all beings have to be straight!

  27. Wouldn’t it be cool when my customer service coaching gets off the ground. I am so excited about it!’

  28. If I had the ability to give to others all the blessings and miracles that have been given to me in this lifetime 💖

  29. If I had the ability to give to others all the blessings and miracles that have been given to me in this lifetime 💖

  30. Wouldn’t it be cool if I would allow myself to hear and know the Voice for God in every moment, in every decision, in every fearful though; to know that I am Loving, Lovable and Loved- just like you.!?

  31. Wouldn’t it be cool to have the most healthy, fun, adventurous, peaceful, loving vacation ever!!!!!!

  32. Wouldn’t it be cool if Unicorns and Pegasus were real, and if you looked through a natural made hole in a stone you would actually see faeries and mythical woodland creatures and magical thinking was not a sign of being crazy.


  34. Wouldn’t it be cool if we could all look beyond our ‘Earth Suits’ and see the beautiful beings of light inside working the controls? We are One! 🙂

  35. Hi Pam! Sorry I’m late to the party! Wouldn’t it be cool if we all understood and embraced the concept of epigenetics… that we all have the ability to heal ourselves and each other? Wouldn’t it be cool if I could be involved in shifting the old paradigm in a MUCH bigger and creative way than I am now? Wouldn’t it be cool if I could reach millions of people, making the concept incredibly easy to understand and apply?!!!
    And have more fun than I can imagine doing it!!!
    Yeeeeeeehaaahhhhhh 😁❤️😁❤️😁🎵

  36. Wouldn’t it be cool if we could all simply Let Go of our baggage, understand that we are all ONE and live in compassionate harmony experiencing the bliss that is ours for the taking!?!

  37. Wouldn’t it be cool if we could form a group of like-minded people to join together for the greater good and make a huge impact on our communities? How much FUN would that be to empower each individual and share inspiration and good health? Our possibilities are limitless. If we could only remember that and believe….

  38. It would be so cool to be paid tons of money to write and sing!!! I’m totally grateful for what is happening now…but huge welcome to new money$$$$ and signing gigs…

    And it would be so COOL if everyones “wouldn’t it be cool” that we could all see ALL of THIS as TRUE this very MOMENT…XOX

    Love you Pam and all you great amazing Peeps here that I get to learn from everyday!

  39. Wouldn’t it be cool to be excited for an unknown future? To feel such deep peace in knowing that everything is going to ok, in fact, more that just ok. Wouldn’t it be cool to look back at all your past blessings and expect more to come? Wouldn’t it be cool to know deep down that you are exactly where you are meant to be? Wouldn’t it be cool if you could see your future self looking back at this time in awe and gratitude?
