Are you waiting for a miracle?


"I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides.
I honor the place in you of love, of truth, of peace, and of light.
And when you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are one."

I am one of those people that finds meaning in every single person and thing that comes across my radar each day. I believe that synchronistic events are the universe’s playful way of giving me a message, a sign, or a point in the right direction. 

I place the value of “message for the purposes of learning and growth” on the signs, songs, and conversations I experience. I believe there are no coincidences in life, and I do try to be truly conscious of every single moment of every single day. I believe there is a greater purpose and meaning to all things. 
 


The intricate patterns of the natural world and the elegant dances of the stars and planets are evidence that some sort of miracle is taking place continuously in the very existence of the Cosmos. It's proof that we live in a universe of miracles.

 The Source of miracles is always present. But if this is so, why aren't we experiencing miracles on a moment to moment basis?

I think that the reason is that most of us simply won't allow it. 



Stay with me for a moment. A miracle might not fit comfortably with our preconceived ideas of how our lives should operate. A miracle could upset our identity, make us rethink our world, show us that our enemies were actually our teachers, and generally make a mess of our view of how life works.

 Our deliberate unbelief can keep miraculous happenings away from our lives, so that we may be able to predict with a fair degree of certainty that tomorrow will be pretty much like today and so that we may take comfort in this predictability...

"Learn to be comfortable with your discomfort. Learn to rest in the riddle of not knowing." I say this to my clients all the time. And I know that its really hard to let go of our inner control freak. But I also know that within our heart of hearts, we know how little it would really take to just let go and allow life to happen even though we may not dare.



The letting go that opens us up to miracles is simply a letting go of the illusions of our control, the  outworn ideas and past experiences which created barriers, and the acceptance of a higher reality which flows and creates unity.
 When we allow our personal beliefs to operate in accordance with the naturally miraculous nature of the Universe, these miracles slip into our lives, our relationships, our hearts –  and enhance them.
 
Accepting that miracles are part of life and that our lives are supposed to be aligned with the perfect synchronicity of the universe makes room for them to occur. The effort to believe that we are somehow separate from the rest of the flow of life is part of what keeps the experience from expressing through us. 



We each have opportunities to become channels for miracles every single day if we choose to be aware of those opportunities presenting. Instead of reacting to other people's stuff, we can stay in our own energy but extend a supportive loving hand, setting an example of peace and serenity. And if we change our perspective on things, and become compassionate to others, and know we have the ability to make a difference with our conscious choices, and words...

We are each messengers. We all have the ability to say to another exactly what it is that they most need, and just when they need to hear it,  to act as a sign, or a point in the right direction for the purposes of learning and growth. In the Oneness of all life, we are all connected with one another to be miracles for each other.
 
So tune your heart, your compassion and your consciousness to the possibilities of synchronicity, and your words will be as healing and profound as if they sprang from the lips of a sage, or a saint, or a wise teacher. You may find that you are the miracle someone was waiting for.


May you be blessed!

  1. Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

    Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

    So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

    Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

    Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and then call for Peace on Earth.

    "Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' Vanity asks the question, 'Is it popular?' But, conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one's conscience tells one that it is right."
    ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

  2. Yes, one of the most difficult things to learn is to recognize miracles when they occur, but when you tune in and become gracious enough to accept and give, it is amazing.
