“You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.”
– Paulo Coelho
Not only is each day a miracle, but even more so, each moment is a miracle.
I have often said that if you slow down just enough to pay attention to what is happening in the moment, no matter where you are and no matter what you are doing, you will see that miracles are happening all around you.
The routines and behavioral habits that we develop are key to preventing us from observing the tiny miracles around us. These patterns become rote and take us out of the present such that we often passively experience life, as though on auto-pilot. As such, it becomes easy to take many things (miracles) in our lives for granted.
It’s important that we try to break up some of our daily routines and be more present to our lives. It’s not hard to do, but it does take desire and practice. The present is always available to us, just as God, Buddha, Krishna, or Spirit is always available to us, but we must take the initiative to engage it.
If you are struggling with remembering to be present, try setting reminders on your phone, put notes on the refrigerator or on your bathroom mirror, read books or quotes that are uplifting and fill you spiritually. Even the smallest effort to be in the present will be of great benefit to you – in body, mind, and spirit.
Most importantly, when you are present, I hope you will see that you too, are a miracle. That the infinite power and source that created the universe exists within you, is you.
And when you realize you are a miracle and you begin to embrace the miracles around you, each day, each moment becomes miraculous. And you, in turn, become a miracle worker – a source of light, love, and compassion. For it is through light, love, and compassion that we transform ourselves, others, and the planet, and work miracles.
