A Course in Miracles Experiment (by Pam Grout) Day 167

Death is not the enemy.

Death is an illusion that we use to “protect” ourselves from the fact that our physical being is a temporary shell.

Like the little hermit crab, we need to continue growing, and as we do, we outgrow the shell we’ve borrowed for the present.

Any form of negativity slows down our growth, our expansion into new realms of joy, peace, prosperity.

Anxiety, sorrow, suffering, even the smallest discomfort – all these give power away to the whole illusion that death is real.

Ecology teaches us that death is a part of life, not its opposite.  Death is just a transfer of energy from one state of being to another.  Every tree that burns in a fire is converted into nutrients for the next generation of trees. Every blade of grass eaten by a horse, a rabbit, a cow, is converted into manure that enriches the soil for the plants that remain.

Just because we can’t see our loved ones on this plane of existence, does not mean they’re “gone”.  We just have to open our minds to let in the joy and happiness they’re experiencing now.

Don’t let negativity take away your life!

Keep growing, and get ready to trade in the shell you’re using now for a larger one.  And prepare yourself for the day when you no longer need that shell for protection!

A Course in Miracles Experiment (by Pam Grout) Day 67

You were created by love, to love and to be loving.

Face it, here.  The Universe doesn’t need another whining, self-pitying voice.  There are plenty of people around who are willing to let go of their personal power to change and grow, so they can feel sorry for themselves.

But you’re obviously NOT one of those people.

You want to be the best human that you can be, and that’s why you’re here, reading this.

Remind yourself today that even Albert Einstein was confounded by the reality of the Quantum Field and the possibilities it introduces into how we conduct our lives.

The field exists as an ocean of possibilities, just waiting for you to focus on one of them so that it can “collapse” into the material world we’re used to experiencing.  The biggest question you have to answer is “What reality do I want to focus on?”

 Because what we focus on is what we see, and our vision immediately starts to exclude all possibilities from view.

What’s YOUR big dream reality?

What is it that you REALLY want to do, to be, and to experience?

When you start to focus on that, everything else falls away like the butterfly’ chrysalis when it emerges into its first day.  You and I are exactly like that butterfly, probably at different stages but still working our way toward that magical emergence from the cramped confines of the shell that enfolds us.

Start breaking out today.  Get ready to fly.

Remind yourself today twice every hour, of the reality of YOUR dream, and the fact that you’ve been in your cocoon long enough to grow and develop your wings.

Focus on your dreams, and let them emerge into daylight.

And have a blessed day today!
