Have You Ever Wondered Why Miracles Happen To Others And Not To You?

A Course in Miracles, Volume Two: Workbook for Students by Foundation for  Inner Peace

So what is a miracle anyway? Albert Einstein said and I quote, “There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” I tend to agree with him.

When we think of miracles, we automatically think of healings that come directly from God or one of His chosen ones. In the dictionary this is defined as: “An event that appears to be contrary to the laws of nature and is regarded as an act of God.” In actual fact, miracles happen everyday to ordinary people. And there is more then one definition of ‘miracle’ in the dictionary. Here’s another: “An event or action that is totally amazing, extraordinary or unexpected.” Could we then say that this major crisis could be a miracle and be grateful for it happening? Now that’s a tall order, isn’t it. Be grateful that we’re losing all our money and possessions. Has it made you more aware of what you do have? Then that’s a miracle.

Being grateful or thankful is easy to do for what we perceive as the good things in our lives. Being grateful for everything is just a tad harder. Asking the question, “What can I learn from this situation?” helps us to understand what we could do to change it and move on and that’s a miracle.

For centuries, worldly scholars have told us that what we a course in miracles think we are. That means that if you consistently think you’re fat, poor, jobless or whatever else you’re thinking then that’s what you are. Everything is energy and your thoughts and actions are part of that energy. What we think, how we act and what we do is transmitted into the universe. (It’s kind of like sending an email over the Internet). That energy resonates with like energies and returns to you that which you have transmitted. It’s as easy as that. Einstein told us that years ago and we are just beginning to understand how important it is. Changing our thoughts and energy could be the answer you are looking for.

To experience these changes and in turn, miracles we need to tune into them. By being aware of our surroundings we begin to have more and more ‘strange’ things happen. Challenge yourself. Put a thought into the universe several times a day and become aware of what is happening around you. Make that challenge something that you can measure. Something like, “I have the $50.00 to pay my friend back.” Your response may come in a strange way. That’s why you need to be aware of what’s happening around you. The other thing I always remember to do is to be grateful for all that I have and for things that come my way so after every ‘transmission,’ I say, “Thank you.”
Our planet is in a crisis. Humanity has lost its direction. We have been given a wakeup call. Viewed as a miracle, this crisis is giving us the opportunity to focus on our relationships be it family, friends, employees/employers, community or self. It is forcing all of us to stop and decide what is important. Miracles are waiting to happen to you. The choice is yours.
