I just got an email from yet another person who purports to “channel the same Abraham that Esther Hicks does.” One glance at their work tells me that’s not remotely true. We know what people know when we hear what THEY have to say — not when they are parroting someone else’s words. I find most people talk about what other people talk about rather than what they know from experience. By their fruits we shall know them. My intuition and common sense all help me discern the quality of the fruits I come across. I don’t eat just any apple that falls in my path. More importantly, I say to them: Your own life experience and the lessons you learn are vastly more fascinating than anyone you might want to emulate or any story you can come up with.
