Let’s talk miracles. Tis the season, after all. Let’s begin with the wonderful thing about miracles which is that they happen. Where do they happen? When do they happen? To whom do they happen? I believe they can happen anywhere anytime to anyone. It’s a matter of perspective, belief and noticing. Some would say that miracles are happening all around us, all the time. What could those miracles be?
We might think of miracles in the Biblical sense. That could include survival when death seemed imminent or a certainty, for example. We often hear about such situations on the news. Or we might hear about something that was an impossibility becoming a reality.
Then there are the miracles in nature. A walk through a forest or climbing a mountain could inspire awe. How does all the flora and fauna know what to do from season to season? Said flora and fauna did not appear on the planet with instruction manuals. Even we, as human beings, can be considered miraculous creations. Our physical make-up alone is wonderous. George Bernard Shaw once said that life itself is the miracle of all miracles.
It is all how we choose to view everything in and around us. Here are some quotes that speak to it much better than I.
All is a miracle. The stupendous order of nature, the revolution of a hundred millions of worlds around a million of stars, the activity of light, the life of all animals, all are grand and perpetual miracles. Francois Voltaire
Miracles happen every day. Not just in remote country villages or at holy sites halfway across the globe, but here, in our own lives. Deepak Chopra
Miracles seldom occur in the lives of those who do not consider them possible. There could be a miracle waiting for you this minute. Please make room for it in your thinking. Neale Donald Walsch
There you have it. What miracle might we stumble upon today? It’s there for the noticing.
Wishing you peace, joy and good health for the holidays and coming year.
