“We are free to take note of the giant miracle we’re living in as often as we want. The more we do so, the closer we weave the fabric of an enchantment that is our most precious inheritance.”—Rosie Bell
When Greek geographer Eratosthenes scientifically proved that the earth is round, not flat, as it appears, I’m sure some of his friends thought, “You’ve got to be kidding me.”
When Italian astronomer Galileo started publishing papers refuting the idea that the sun was not revolving around the earth, as it appears, the Catholic Church not only said, “You’ve got to be kidding me,” but they charged him with heresy and sentenced him to life imprisonment.
So when I suggest that everyone’s true nature is love and that we are always, at all times receiving love’s gifts, you might scoff and think “you’ve got to be kidding me.”
Or at least you’d notice that that’s not exactly how it appears.
But I have discovered that if I truly want peace of mind and happiness that doesn’t blip on and then off again, I must surrender all that appears to be. I must deconstruct my every belief.
Just like the earth has always been round and the sun has always been the center of our orbit, there’s a deeper and vaster reality than what appears to be. There’s something a whole lot bigger going on than the shallow narration we’ve been given.
Cuba Gooding’s famous line from Jerry Maguire was, “Show me the money.” My line –or at least my daily intention–is “Show me the love.” Return my mind to the full awareness of the eternal, changeless love that is my truth, my home, my destiny.
Have a marvy week, my friends. #222 Forever

As always, dear Pam, you hit me right in the feels!
I have sold my home, and all my stuff, so I can live my life for a bigger purpose, and not be tied down.
The Universe keeps giving me everything I want to make this process flow with ease and Grace. At age 72 I am energized and ready to move forward into my next big adventure.
Blessings to you for sharing just what I needed to hear!
You are so, so welcome, my friend! I look forward to hearing more about your big adventure.
Very interesting Pam, many times we are blinded to our limiting beliefs, I can’t, I don’t believe, etc. and she asks how we can change all those false beliefs that are instilled since we were children. Thank you
Unfogging my mirror (so the light can get through) is a daily practice for me.
Pam, thank you so much! ❤
Thanks so much four your prompt responde. Bless you
You’re welcome! Thank you!!
Yes, I feel like that person who says “you gotta be kidding me”, especially at the end of some days but inside I know what you write to be true. It resonates.
With practice, gratitude and love I will get there. Keep up the good word! Xo
We all say “you gotta be kidding me” from time to time. Gratitude and practice, as you point out, put us closer to the truth.
It’s nice to be reminded that even if we believe in things that can’t be seen, we’re not crazy. Thanks for being you
Well, we might be crazy, but I consider that a good thing.
“as it appears” – that hit me hard! So true, there is so much that’s not as it appears. Thank you for that excellent reminder, and I hope you have a marvy week as well!
Appearances are mostly illusions formed by our beliefs and cultural training. That’s why I prefer to look deeper.
Yes. I agree with all that you have written today. I loved the music. Love is all there is.
I’m wondering what the next big “you’ve got to be kidding me” will be. It’s already so out there that there are so few people to talk to about it. Hope you are doing happy things.
Thanks! I choose happy things most days. I hope we all do.
I LOVE you Pam Grout!!!❤️ Boy did I need your reminder today! Thank you for your words. I felt an immediate shift out of the foolish blahs and right on into infinite possibilities and infinite love and light!
YAY! Going to go dance around the room in my PJ’s!!!
Now that’s what I like to hear. I’ll join you in the dance and, yes, I’m still in my PJ’s!
Love,love,love this! Thank you lovely Pam
Thank YOU, lovely Claire!
Dear Pam, thank you so much for your wonderful contributions and for constantly reminding me to believe in a good benevolent loving universe. What I desperately want to know: How do you manage to continue to believe in the good and the all-embracing love after the heavy loss you have experienced? I’m desperately looking for a way to be able to do that too. But sadness and despair over the serious and infinitely painful illness and the tragic death of several of my loved ones keep me from doing it. Sometimes the pain is unbearable and I don’t see love through all this cruelty. It is all the nicer to know that you can do it. All the best and thank you again.
Dear Christina. First, I am so, so sorry to hear about your recent losses. And, yes, grief is sometimes excruciating. As much as I can, I chose to place myself and my attention on the vaster reality, the deeper truth–not only because I believe it in my bones and because my precious, brilliant daughter is still so present in my life, but because it makes my days happier. I wish you peace and love, always love.
Thank you!!!!! Best way ever to start my day with these beautiful words/truths.
Glad to hear it!
I love your books and I’m a believer. I’m learning how to manifest and connecting with the FP. I’m 66 so I have lots of rewiring to do but I’m getting there. I got discouraged this past summer when my house deal fell through and I couldn’t manifest another buyer but I guess the timing was not right. I trust the Universe! Thanks for sharing your knowledge
Yes I agree that’s all there is, is love. I’m sure it’s helped you immensely too Pam. I have an adult son who lives with me, he has special needs and mental health problems but all I see is the love.
Woo Hoo for the post and the music! Just what I needed to start the day at 6am!
It was an amazing article! I loved this quote from Rosie bell, thanks for reminding me again. I really enjoyed reading your article. You literally gave me a new perspective. It is a really beautiful thing to think that you are always receiving love’s gifts. I think you are right, everyone be it friends or family do something for us out of love, and we are receiving love in form of materials and help every day. I am grateful that you pointed it out, it just makes every action more meaningful.
