“If we can pay attention to things that really matter, there a revolution starts.”– Robin Wall Kimmerer
I always liked blogging on Friday, partly because I could end with my favorite intention. “Have the very best weekend of your life.”
So even though I sent out a post earlier this week (in case you didn’t notice, I have no schedule or agenda for these posts), I thought I’d send out this tiny little reminder that even when it feels like your life sucks the big one, there is an inner light and an inner joy still going on within you.
I know this is hard to believe, ridiculous even according to the cultural Kool-aid we’ve all been gulping. But it’s true. That inner pilot light is always present.
Yes, our sacred gift of attention has been hijacked to pay attention to problems, products and other people’s agendas. But if we turn our attention ever so slightly, catch a tiny glimpse of that inner light, we’ll see that we remain as the Course promises, “as life created us.”
The inner light, the inner joy cannot be extinguished. Clouds can cover it. Our focus on others’ agendas can obscure it.
But it’s always, always, always there.
Remember this news flash as you go out and “have the very best weekend of your life.”
Pam Grout is the author of 20 books including E-Squared, E-Cubed, Thank & Grow Rich and her latest book, The Course in Miracles Experiment: A Starter Kit for Rewiring Your Mind (And Therefore Your World).
Thanks for the reminder. Some days we get so caught up in our focus on negative emotions that it’s hard to see the light within.
Thank you! I’m a little wabbabely today. Lost my best friend and I was her caregiver for 3 plus years. She passed last week. I miss mornings with her. Anyway this helps! Thank you Pam
Amor y luz para ti!!! Gracias 💚💚🌈💕
Thanks for this great reminder, Pam! I agree, our essential nature is eternal. It is the real Self, and It knows no bias for or against anyone. Its alias is unconditional Love.
Wishing you an incredible weekend! 🙏🙂
I feel so much joy after reading this! Thank you, Pam. I WILL have the best weekend!
I really appreciate the quotes Pam selects, always. I don’t how she does it but I have no qualms admitting that no other author does as good a job as her.
Thank you so much, I needed this reminder today.
Thank you for these inspiring words!
Have a wonderful weekend too!
I was driving to work this morning and was in a rather miserable mood. Drove past a car and noticed the license plate:
TAZ and then a few numbers. It reminded me to remember my inner me and totally changed my mood.
Thank you so much and blessings for a lovely and peaceful weekend.🐋🦋🕊
Pam that name I like, Pam I am Pam, I was given your book one week before a major heart attack, and first thing that hit me was Dam It Take The Gift, So Very True, And guess what I KNOW IT!!!!!!. Love You
Thank you for reminding me to connect with my beautiful inner pilot light Pam 💖 embracing my life with gratitude.
Love this reminder! Thank you so much. Hope you have a fabulous best day of your life kinda weekend
Thank you for the reminder.
Have an extraordinarily epic weekend!
Thank you so very much! Oh, how I needed this at this time!
Wow, if you only knew how much I needed to read your post this morning. What a breath of fresh air you are! Thanks for a beautiful start to my day remembering to embrace the inner joy inside, it IS inside of each of us! I hope you have the best weekend of your life too!
For some crazy reason I forgot to check my email this morning. I thought of it at one point but my logical mind said “there won’t be another post from Pam so no hurry to check your mail” !!! Oh boy, that logical mind often doesn’t have a clue what it’s talking about! If only I’d tuned in to spirit – or that inner pilot light – I would have known I should check my email and then I would have been delighted by a bonus blog post from my favourite blogger of all time! 😄🥳😍 Thank you Pam for this excellent “extra post” and wonderful reminder that our inner light and inner joy cannot be extinguished even when it’s hidden by life’s troubles. It’s so heartening to know that it’s always burning, even if dimly at times, and that we can access it at any moment, anywhere, no matter what. ⭐️🌝🌟 Even though I am now into the late afternoon of Saturday the 22nd, your post has added an unexpected moment of joy and peace to my weekend, so thanks! And I hope you’re about to have the most amazingly awesome weekend yourself dear Pam! 🎈🥳❤️🤗🌹
