The True Miracle
"People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize:
a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child - our own two eyes.
All is a miracle."
Thich Nhat Hanh
When you woke up today did it occur to you that it - in itself, was a miracle?
We get so used to being here, that seldom do we stop and realize just how big and miraculous it all really is.
All of the things that had to occur to make a world here with life is an amazing miracle. The human body in and of itself, is a working miracle. Look at all living creatures -- everything was created for a distinct reason and purpose. When you think of all the events that led to bringing your parents together -- and in turn their ancestors -- so you could be a part of this amazing creation, it is really astonishing. If you have children, you are also aware of how phenomenal their existence is.
Thought of the Day: It's hard to realize just how miraculous life is when you are desensitized due to daily exposure. Today, take a step back and realize just how amazing everything is. Look at things with fresh eyes -- and express thanks for the amazing miracle it truly is!
