When we think of the word, miracle, things, such as hearing about someone surviving a horrific crash may come to mind. But, the truth is, there are miracles happening all around us that isn’t as dramatic as surviving a car crash. For instance, nobody truly knows how the body knows how to heal itself. That, in and of itself, is a miracle. Just the mere fact that we are breathing is a miracle. Just the mere fact that our body is equipped with five senses that enhance the way we explore our world, is a miracle. In nature, there are many examples of miracles as well. For instance, there are designs on flowers, a roadway if you will, that leads a bee, bird or butterfly to the sweet spot of nectar. Flowering trees use environmental cues to begin growing new buds. Bats use sonar to navigate through the night sky. All of these examples of miracles cannot be explained, as of yet anyways, of how these kinds of phenomena came to be. This should excite everyone one of us. I know it excites me.
But, because this is how our reality has always been, we can take these miracles for granted. It is in ‘waking up’, in becoming present, where we can truly become witness to these miracles. And in becoming witness to these miracles, we will soon realize that there is never a dull moment in life!
