You are the miracle!

I was very struck by this thought so profoundly as I was reading through everyone's posts about their miracle experiences in the Month of Miracles event I'm hosting through my Facebook page.

There is often mention of another person or an animal or a plant. The miracle of a child blowing bubbles, of a caregiver, of a friend, a stranger helping to make something happen, the glory of the changing colours of the trees for fall, an animal at play...

We see these people and things for the miracle they bring into our lives. Yet, we rarely see ourself for the miracle that we bring to another.  Imagine if we could shift our thinking to knowing that each of us is also a miracle, with all our wonderful special, unique traits that each of us has.  

“You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.”  ― Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth

“You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.” 
― Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth

I posted the quote you see from Eckhart Tolle.  When I posted it, I was thinking more in terms of how unique we each are and the fact that we even exist as part of this enormous cosmos. Now I see that this was a rather limited perspective on my part.

How different would this world be if each of us could see ourself as a miracle and the things we do as being miraculous? Imagine how uplifting this could be to a child to know he or she is a miracle, many miracles in fact, to other people whose lives he/she touches, to an animal he/she cuddles or a plant he/she waters? What could that knowledge do to change the way a child grows and perceives the self, the world and his/her role in it?

I feel my Inner Child sobbing to know this could be possible and an expansion across my chest as I write. It's as if I feel her saying, "Yes, I am a miracle but people forgot it and I don't understand why."


See Yourself As a miracle

Here's a small exercise for you to start seeing how you are the miracle.  For one week at the end of each day, ask yourself the following questions and write down the answers that come to you. Write down as many instances of miracles that you can remember - basically you are contemplating your every action and interaction that occurred during the day. Try to see yourself through the eyes of those with whom you interacted, without judgment or critical thinking. Remember, miracles can be very simple acts of daily living.

  • What kind of miracle have I been for myself today? 
  • How did I benefit from this miracle?
     
  • What is the miracle I have brought to a plant/nature today?
  • How did it benefit from this miracle?
     
  • What is the miracle I have brought to an animal today?
  • How did it benefit from this miracle?
     
  • What is the miracle I have brought to a person today?
  • How did they benefit from this miracle?
     
  • Or as my son and his friends have been taught at school, "Whose bucket did you fill today and how?" 

At the end of the week, look back at your answers.  Do you now see how you are the miracle?
