E-Squared:  The 10-year anniversary edition (with a Manifesting Scavenger Hunt!!) GET IT HERE

The only appropriate response is “wow!”

“We should be Grand Champion Lovers of People, and everyone, everyone, everyone, everyone, everyone should know it, see it, feel it, experience it, bask it in, and be drawn to it.”—Jen Hatmaker

A British photographer captured this murmuration of starlings. Taz, to my way of thinking, may have been involved.

I have never much liked today’s Course lesson. In fact, in my book, Course in Miracles Experiment, I labeled it an “R.S.O,’ a term that stands for Rip That Sucker Out.  Bill Thetford, one of the original scribes, or maybe it was Ken Wapnik suggested (in different terms than mine, of course) that if one of the Course tenets doesn’t resonate, let it go. Don’t get bogged down with it.

But today, when I was reading it, I understood the lesson in a different way. It was talking about resistance and how, when we defend, or set out to solve “problems,” we make whatever we’re defending against real. We literally give our “enemies” or “problems” power.  We make false things appear true. Our attention is that powerful.

Bottom line is they’re not real—our enemies or our problems—but by applying our mind’s superpower to their resolution we create perceptions and mental constructs that make us feel trapped. That’s the ego’s whole game.

And why my motto, “I need do nothing” is so vital. Life, without my self-created monsters, without my resistance to the wonder within each now moment is nothing short of paradise. I was telling my possibility posse last week that just walking around my yard is like going on safari, never knowing what new life form I may stumble upon. Granted it’s usually a lily, not a lion, but only a judging mind fails to see the equal beauty in all life—whatever form it might take.

Resistance and its mean girl cousins are just not that interesting to me anymore. This moment is always enough.

  1. Awesome as always, Pam Light! This is what I shared with my “How to Ask and Manifast” class last evening:

    “I live in a world where I have nothing left to lose and nothing left to prove.

    I’m already there.”

    – Carol Borsello

  2. I like your comment about mean girl cousins. I lived with several of those cousins until I found the course. I am blessed.

  3. Thank you Pam!
    I loved waking up to your post this morning! Thank you for your insight and I agree with it. So important to realize this truth the course offers. Makes life so good! I agree Tax was in on it! Lol
    Love ❤️ Love ❤️ Love
    #TogetherForever 🤗😇😘

  4. WOW! That hedgehog formation!!! WOW!
    Every day, I go take a “tour” of my yard and garden, and revel in what is new, what has grown since yesterday, what is moving on to the next phase of life or “death”. It’s all magic, and I delight in the little things that are really big things.

  5. Thank you, thank you. I had to re-read it a few time for it to sink in. This message was very needed yesterday! I love all your messages and they are so helpful.

  6. Muy cierto lo que comentas Pam, a nuestro alrededor pasan cosas mágicas y no nos damos cuenta de ello. Y nos enfocamos en las malas. Que grato relato, me gustan tus mensajes, me dan otra perspectiva de vida. Bendiciones

  7. Right On Time, Pam. So halt fire your awareness,so thankful you shared them. Best, Biggest Blessings available on this high flying day in life for you. Grateful to be in your orbit.
    Movie magic occurring. People lining up to be involved.

  8. This post was perfect for me right now. I can’t tell you how this resonated with an ‘issue’ I’m ‘dealing with’ right now. This reminded me that I am the author of everything in my life and if I’m choosing to allow anything to become an ‘issue that I need to deal with’, then I get what I get. When I allow the Creator to take control, I’m always amazed at how everything just works. Letting go of control can be difficult, but when you surrender to the Higher Power, life becomes so easy. I too marvel at the amazing things I encounter each day in my yard and on my walks. Thank you for the reminder that these are the only ‘reality’ that matters.

  9. Yes!!! Your words are always so timely in my life. I’m facing some life changes, which are not in themselves negative, but I find myself repeatedly saying…. “but what if”…………………. You are such an amazing life changer. Thank you!!

  10. I love the quote by Jen Hatmaker. I felt an effervescent life-filled loving energy bubbling up in me as I imagined all of us living as “Grand Champion Lovers of People.” Yes! And what an amazing photograph – a magical “hedgehog of starlings” 😁 Love it! Thankyou, too, for reminding us that this moment is always enough, especially when we live fully in it rather than resisting it. I think it was Louise Hay who said “the point of power is always in the present moment.” Yes. So here’s to living in the moment without resistance like Grand Champion Lovers of People. Amen! 😁🩷🥳💜🎉🧡🥰

  11. I feel Taz also understands echidnas are the Aussie version of hedgehogs, as I discovered at last month’s transition!

  12. Hola Pam! Y cuál es la lección del día del que hablas? Esta aquí escrita? Perdona pero no sé del curso de milagros. Gracias!
    Por cierto tus palabras siempre me llegan como un mensaje. Gracias Pam! 🤍
