MAKING SPACE FOR MIRACLES


'Miracle' (n): An extraordinary event that surpasses all known human or natural powers....Such an effect or event manifesting or considered as a work of God.

Miracles happen all the time and all over the world.  They often happen despite our insistence that they cannot happen, and despite our obstinate refusal to believe that they are possible.  Often we do not even recognise them as miracles.  Miracles are hampered when we place our judgments of impossibility on them.  By regarding them as impossible, or even unlikely, we close off ways for the miracles to manifest.  Our behaviour and thinking hinder Life from delivering miracles.

All that it takes for miracles to happen more easily is to remain open to their possibility.  Not to expect or demand that they do happen, because when we do that we are bound to be disappointed when things don't manifest as we wanted.  When we truly want to bring about a miracle, Life (or God, if you prefer) is simply calling us to be open to the possibility and to align our behaviour and thinking in such a way that that possibility can become a reality.  

Whether it be the healing of the 'incurable' illness, the conception of a child by the barren couple, the return of abducted children, reconciliation and healing of nations, or personal relationships, rain to ease the drought, finding your soulmate or beholding the transition of a child with its own personality from baby to adult, all we need do is envisage and open completely to the possibility.  Life will find the way.
