Meet the Author

When I turned 57 in May, 2009, the realization of how much our Creator loves all of us really hit home, right in my heart. Replacing my guilt and doubts was a profound inner awareness that God (aka Love, Christ, Higher Self, Universe, Grandfather, Goddess, Great Mystery, etc.) loves us so completely and so passionately that what is dark, and our memories of the darkness, are literally burned away by the light. The dark beings chasing us in our dreams are not monsters from stories—they are us, our shadow selves or dark sides. Fear keeps us from turning around, but fear is a liar, in truth, no more than a hologram. Eventually, we will all turn around and see that we are so much more than the darkness that fear would have us believe. We are children of a Great Being of Love who awaits our outstretched arms and our call, "Papa! Mama!"
My life journey is weaved throughout the 700+ posts at my blog, NOTES ALONG THE PATH, many of them written about what I have gleaned from my errors, which I now refer to as learning experiences. Stirrings regarding the nature of Higher Love are also within me, and I did have a drive to serve something greater than myself, even before I became chronically ill. Maybe these matters of the higher heart, some effective hard-knocks lessons, and a healing by a divine hand combined to create an opening for me to listen for my Higher Self and write. Though I believe the messages herein are a gift of a loving Creator, I know that just because I have written, “God is Love,” doesn't make it so. I regularly discover more layers of yucky stuff within, yet the only words I continue to hear are about how much I am loved by our Creator—of how much you, we, are all loved. The Great Being of Love knows exactly who we are, both the light and the dark of us, as we are born on Earth. God longs for us to move closer to Him/Her, but loves us whether we do or not. Earth is our school; God made us and our school.
Over time, my spiritual ideals have become inclusive and nonjudgmental, for what could be a more significant and personal decision than what we believe, or not believe, about the Being who did (or did not—whatever your beliefs) create us? At Notes Along the Path, as a great East/West guru lovingly refers to them, God is our Heavenly Father, our Divine Mother and Jesus Christ, our dear friend. Friend! I often think of God simply as Love, whatever its name or form. Wherever there is Love, there also is its source.
I have found that the slightest movement toward our higher hearts opens doors; I believe this happens because we are all meant to become messengers of Love. Who knows? Maybe you, too, will soon be writing ‘God is Love’ online or on sticky notes or in a book. We humans sorely need many more compassionate and comforting love letters. All I know for sure is, Love calls to all of us and we must climb, and when we fall, get up and climb again. This is life on Earth. If we can remain focused on Love and compassion, and finding forgiveness and peace, no matter what happens, we will join hearts and make the journey together, whether it is in our changing world or on the other side.
God bless us, every one.
Pam Bickell
