Are you dimensionally challenged?

“Pessimism doesn’t change the world. Seeing the bright possibility on the horizon, and declaring it real, is the act of faith that can get us there.”—Barbara Kingsolver

I have to restrain myself from starting every post with “OMG!” Blathering on about my lettuce patch and climbing purple clematis and the fox who makes his rounds in my neighborhood probably makes me sound uncool, unworldly.

But dang it! Why not find the wonder within the moment, revel in the life that’s exploding everywhere around me?

Cynicism has long been the prevailing fashion, but is it really true? Is half-full all there is to see? Or just a conditioned viewpoint we’ve spent years building up and believing in?

Today’s Course in Miracles lesson asks us to refrain from dismal thoughts and meaningless laments.  It asks us to see a different world and to think a different thought from those we have thus far been practicing.

It says any thought that’s not life-affirming is a lie. Any thought that doesn’t take possibility into account is limited and untrue.

And while a lie believed might temporarily act as law, by shifting our gaze slightly to “the now,” we can neutralize and dismantle it.

Looking at life with wonder and thanksgiving is the doorway into a higher dimension, a place where another, more beautiful voice will always have the floor.

I also want to let you know that this merry, merry month marks the grand opening of Taz’s Hangout at the Douglas County Big Brothers/Big Sisters headquarters.  It’s a new space where Bigs and Littles can hang. Taz’s friends and many of my friends are gathering today to officially “cut the ribbon.” BBBS is even changing the official address to 222.

So I continue to be amazed, to celebrate and to see possibilities and declare them real.

#222 Forever!

  3. I believe it was A Course in Miracles that stated, “There are only 2 kinds of thoughts: Loving thoughts and attack thoughts.”

  4. Love this post! Your takes Pam are like a big beautiful breath of FRESH air! Rock on!

  5. Dear Pam! Reading your blog, and your posts are always a wonderful, uplifting reminder that we hold the power.
    I know aligning my thoughts with my feelings brings positive outcomes.
    Thank you for the gentle nudge on my 65th birthday! A birthday, I was told I’d never see due to multiple diagnoses and stubbing my nose at recommended protocol. I never could wrap my mind around the professional’s negative outcomes. My mind knows and believes and I am celebrating! Yes! I needed your uplifting, gentle nudge. The Universe always knows and deliverers!

  6. Thank you Pam! Inspiring and uplifting as always. Congrats on the Bigs and Littles Hangout – an excellent initiative. And woohoo that they’re changing the address to 222! That’s magical. 🥳🦋 I’m going to do my best to join you in being continually amazed, to celebrate life’s magic, and to see possibilities everywhere and declare them real. Now that IS magic. ⭐️🌷😘

  7. OMG Pam… Your words ALWAYS make me smile & lift my spirits. I practise what you share everyday & relate so much, so I just wanted to say thankyou, I don’t know you but I love you & your view of this life experience & #222 forever xxx

  8. Despite ‘unsubscribing’ from EVERYTHING, somehow I could not bring myself to not get your emails – so well written, amusing in a world where there is little mirth. Like the curious ‘smile’ on the face of a hedgehog, your emails are ripe for a little chuckle. Thank you.
