“Why should James Bond have all the action, fun, money, and resort hotel living.” ― Paul Kyriazi
“Hm,’ said Bond. ‘That’s bogeyman stuff.”—Ian Fleming
My ego (that whiny voice that likes to inform me that so and so “done me wrong,” that this circumstance is a huge problem) is a double agent. It pretends to know everything. But he really did call you a skunk. You really DO have a good excuse.
It pretends to be my friend. It pretends to be working on my behalf. But it lies through its teeth. It has no allegiance to the higher cause. In fact, it’s employed by the patriarchy, loyal only to the dominant paradigm that says people are not to be trusted, that lack and limitation is the state of the world and that fear is the only emotion worth cultivating.
This pernicious double agent ego infiltrated my mind sometime before I was 5. It began transmitting disinformation by telling me I was somehow different from other people and that I was both better (sometimes it whispers that fictitious story) and/or worse (another popular tactic) than everybody else.
It gained my trust by scaring me, showing me its deceptive surveillance of the wretched and the ugly. This double crossing mole told me that life is hard, that people were not to be trusted, that abundance was for other people.
But today, I have but one goal. To stand with and for Truth. ACIM Lesson 257 promises me peace. And any operative that presents conflicting counterintelligence, I will immediately report to the authorities (the Holy Spirit) to handle as it sees fit.
Also want to share this video from www.tribesforgood.com. I’ll be joining them this November for the maiden Social Impact Journey. Any takers?
Pam Grout is the author of 19 books including E-Squared, E-Cubed, Thank & Grow Rich and her latest book, Art & Soul,Reloaded: A Year-Long Apprenticeship to Summon the Muses and Ignite Your Daring, Audacious, Creative Side.
Pam, are you in the women only, or the mixed group for Nov. 18?
I didn’t know there were two separate trips. I’ll find out from my organizer. It would be great if you could join us.
Retired from my school in June to take on my new divine purpose..watching my 3 mo. Old Grand daughter while my daughter goes back to her teaching job❤
Thank you for inspiring me with your emails each day dear Pam.
Dear Linda–You are so very welcome. Your new Divine purpose sounds awesome! What a lucky granddaughter indeed!
Thanks so much for sharing this. I love what your group is doing as that is what will change the world, not governments. I’ll be thinking of you nice and warm in November. Yes, I know the troll that keeps telling me those same stories. Have a wonderfilled weekend.
You, too! So glad to see you on here so regularly! Your beautiful picture always brings a big smile to my face!
I haven’t missed a post. If you spend the time writing them, I will spend the time to let you know you are heard. My daughter’s first words last weekend when we got together were “Did you read Pam Grouts post today?” She doesn’t comment so I do it for both of us since I have a wordpress blog and it’s easier. 😉 We are hooked. Marlene & daughter
I just encouraged Alayna to apply for this trip!!!!

Yay! I hope Alayna applies. That would be wonderful. And I have to tell you. I LOVE YOUR quote by Edward Abbey.
Love! Thank you!
~ Lovely. Thank you for the introduction to ACIM. I shall enjoy the learning. (This is the second post/e-mail I am receiving.) Wishing you all the best with your IMPACT JOURNEY in India. It sounds lovely in so many regards but it does not fit the budget for me. Take care.
~ Thank you. The introduction to ACIM. It is most appreciated. I shall enjoy the learning. This is the second post I am receiving from your blog. All the best with your IMPACT JOURNEY Experience in India. I hope many can join the experience. I look forward to such an event being a possibility! Take care.
Sorry two replies posted. I only wished for the one for Sept 14 2018 at 22:42pm to show..The other was a draft that I thought I was altering…sorry about that. Many thanks for your understanding.
Amazing! Perfect Timing as Always❤️Thank you!!!!
Being a student of the course for decades, I have become very quicky aware of my thoughts returning to the old me as a opposed to the new and improved model that I have invented. This is an on going miracle which makes me a very happy person, in spite of any manure which does enter into my space. I know I create my own reality, via my thoughts.
My dear dear teacher Dr. Wayne Dyer saved my sanity. Pam, I am in admiration of your writing, which states clearly We can and we must train our thoughts to live a life of joy.
I now know I am amazing. This has taken time, but oh wow,, having read hundreds of books on self-reliance, I baked a new me. Once on this path, sharing becomes the next exciting step. We are part of the healing of the planet one thought at a time. Fantastic times to be alive.
