Do you expect miracles?

As for the future, your task is not to foresee it, but to enable it.

For the first time in my life I am excited about what I do not know, for I can finally see that not knowing means the possibilities are endless.

Do you expect miracles?  I grew up in a house where my mom lived on the basis of miracles.  This was exciting and offered a lot of promise for a young kid with a head full of wants.  The problem was that I wasn’t getting the miracles that I wanted.  My limited understanding of the world led me to the conclusion that believing in miracles was stupid and only a set up to disappointment.  This left me with what might be the opposite of miracles and that is that I could have anything as long as I worked hard for it and I could fully understand the process of how to get it. Which usually led me back to the concept of hard work.

At Sunday services there was a banner on the wall that quoted a verse “faith is believing what you cannot see.”  Shortly after that service I came across a quote from one of my favorite books The Little Prince where the fox says “And now here is my secret, a very simple secret:
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” Later more messages came to me that seemed to pound away at my belief about miracles.  I heard myself telling someone something that I had told others a hundred times, you cannot lose the game you’re playing.  I have stated many times that the combination of our thoughts and feelings are so powerfully creative that they will always be successful in manifesting themselves in our reality in some fashion.  Just because we can’t see how they will happen or even explain afterwards how it came about does not matter.  For we do not need to understand the how in order to be successful in making the end result come true.  This whole game was put together in such a perfect way that we all have the option to have whatever we want and that is a miracle!

Just think about it for a minute, how many miracles have you experienced?  I know a few of yours even though we may have never met.  I know that you could not walk at one time and then you did.  It was a miracle; you had no idea of how to do it, you only saw that you wanted the end result.  At one time in your life you heard only noises and then they became words you understood and spoke.  A child saying their first word is a miracle, maybe as an adult we expected it but as a kid we were probably quite surprised and pleased with what we discovered we could do.  When the mile record was over four minutes it was considered impossible for someone to run the mile in under four minutes.  If it were impossible then when it was done it must have been a miracle. The miracle was repeated several times in the following year and thousands of times since, only now it’s not considered a miracle.

There are so many things that are beyond my current ability to understand that I would be (have been) severely limited to what I could have, do, or experience in my life if understanding was a prerequisite.  It is funny to me to find that at the root of miracles is belief and that it’s been my belief that there is no such thing as miracles.  That is all I have ever needed to do is have faith and believe in things whether I could see them or not.  As my awareness has grown and I clearly see how my mind is the genesis for the experiences I have, I am certain that miracles happen.  Where will your next miracle be?
