There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The ot er is as thought everthing is a miracle.
Albert Einstein
We think of a miracle, such as a sudden physical healing, as an event. Actually, the real miracle is not the event, but how we perceive the event in our lives. Ask yourself which is the real miracle: when the check finally arrives, the deadline is extended, the lawsuit is settled, the exception is made? Or when you cope, serene and smiling in the face of unbearable circumstances, trumphantly blowing everybody’s mind—-including your own -with poise and courage?
Marianne Williamson describes a miracle as “a parting of the mist, a shift in perception, a return to love.” The sacred continuum of Love is what makes miracles possible: Spirit’s love us, our love for each other, our love for spirit. Once miracles were all we knew, because we existed in Love. Then we woke up on earth and “were taught thoughts like competition, struggle, sickness, finite resources, limitation, guilt, bad, death, scarcity, and loss. We began to think these things, and so we began to know them.” Love was replaced by fear.
When we exist in fear-which for many of us is real life-miracles become the exception, not the daily round. But it doesn’t have to stay that way. What we need to do is find our way back home, back to our authentic self.
We have to seek to learn is to surrender all the ego’s preconceptions-what we want, need, and think will make us happy-exchanging it only for the practical daily application of Love in our lives. “Whether our psychic pain is in the area of relationships, health, career, or elsewhere, love is a potent force, the cure, the answer“.
Nothing real can be threatend.
Nothing unreal exist.
Herein lives the peace of God.
In becoming aware of this, we experience the miracle of Real Life. “In asking for miracles, we are seeking a practical goal, a return to inner peace“. We‘re not asking for something outside us to change, but for something inside us to change.

    • I have been reading Everyday Grace by Marianne Williamson.  I, too, am amazed with the simplicity of it all.  Love or fear, which will it be?  It is all there is and it is peacefully everything.
