What’s a miracle? – In truth the miraculous ranges from the seemingly minute to the truly large-scale. One minor miracle is that this late blog post ever was made (That may be a bit of an exaggeration…it’s just a little later than I had hoped.)
Really, what do we expect – the parting of the Red Sea? Do they have to be huge? Have you ever considered how miraculous our every breath is? our very existence? It’s true!
Have you ever really considered the amazing fact that each and every breath we take sustains our life in the moment – but just in that moment? We must draw a new breath regularly or the tenuous miracle of life could leave us. Doesn’t that mean each breath is truly a life-giving miracle? What about the miracle that oxygen is filtered from each breath and added to our bloodstream while CO2 is removed. How about the amazing pump that circulates our blood uninterrupted from our birth until death carrying the oxygen to all parts of our body and the Co2 back to our lungs for exhale?
Have you ever considered what it takes for you to swallow, digest food or shrug your shoulders?
This isn’t to minimize the miracle of your birth, our planet, the atmosphere, or the heart-tugging smile of a child.
So if everything is a miracle aren’t you? Aren’t I?
How many people reading this have survived life threatening medical issues? Every sunrise is a miracle, right? is that just because you were sick? Weren’t they always a miracle?
I wonder why we don’t appreciate the wonder around us, the wonder that IS us?
It’s really easy, and maybe closer to our nature, to worry about tomorrow, wonder why we didn’t get the promotion or seethe at our neighbor because their dog did his business in our yard. But why would we do any of these things when we’re surrounded by the miraculous? In truth aren’t these all a waste of our time and energy?
An amazing quote is attributed to one of the world’s greatest known scientists. Consider the fact this is from a man of science.
Albert Einstein — ‘There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.’
I realize this post has more questions than answers. That’s because I don’t purport to have answers. Just suggesting a topic. Go ahead…discuss.
I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.
