How to change the optical illusion of your life

Pam Grout

“Man’s concept of his world built on the experience of the five senses is no longer adequate and in many cases no longer valid.”—Shafica Karagulla
newopticalillusions(7)A Course in Miracles is a thick, dense book that most of us who rank high on the woo-woo spectrum own, but very few actually read.

I get it. It’s not a picture book.

Because it’s my main spiritual squeeze, I’m asked a lot of questions. But here’s all you really need to know. The Course tells us consciousness creates the material world. And that we get to decide how we’re going to experience life, that we get to choose what we want to see.

This would be truly good news except for one small fact. Most of us have a monstrous chip on our shoulder. We think life sucks or that it’s here to be endured.

So we use our butt-kicking consciousness to create…

Don’t buy your diagnosis

“Reality is so vast that there is no way from our small place in the universe to see it all. We create cultural constructs of our knowledge and try and make the whole vast infinite universe fit in our tiny little boxes.”

I know it seems like stone-cold fact that you are depressed or financially challenged or still suffering the aftermath of something your parent did or didn’t do.

But it’s just not true.

It seems true because you’ve collapsed the wave of that reality. In the quantum world, the observer (that’s you expecting and believing things are a certain way) interacts with all the possible superpositions (the world’s unlimited possibilities). Once you collapse the wave (the particular state or affliction you’ve been…

A new and different time zone. Why I refuse to be bullied by time

I decided not to physically move my clocks back until necessary for my sanity..;)

Pam Grout

“Forget the to-do list. Create a to-be list.”—Kelly Sullivan Ruta
Stealing-time

Here in the United States, we just ended Daylight Savings Time. If nothing else, this tinkering with the clocks is a potent reminder that time is a construct we made up, a construct we all agree upon and a construct we can change at any time.

As my hero Alby E. used to say, “Time is but an illusion, albeit a persistent one.”

So here’s my proposal:

Let’s rewrite the construct of time as a prison (“I never have enough.” “There’s too much to do.”).

Instead of a number on a clock face, let’s approach time as an unlimited gift of pure presence. As deep moments just to be.

Congress created Daylight Savings Time.

We get to create our personal approach to time.

Do you want surface time? Ferrari, go, go, go time?

Or do you choose deep time: where…
