The subtlety of miracles
Today I experienced what I will define as a personal miracle -- an insight into deeper reality, a more direct experience of the One, and the divine nature of all conscious beings, all consciousness, in fact.
It is my hope that sharing this with you all will in some way stimulate your own insights and create your own miraculous reality.
This insight was triggered in an instant as I watched "What the Bleep Do We Know" for the second time or so. For those who haven't yet seen it or don't know about this science, essentially, quantum physics confirms what spritualists have known for millenia -- the material world exists only in our minds, it is only as "real" as we believe it to be. Quite literally, the only "things" that are truly real are possibilities, tendencies, or "thoughts", and we literally choose in every waking moment which possibilities get "promoted" into material existence by deciding how to act, even if our only "action" is a mere thought.
Science used to say the opposite of what religion says. Now they are reluctantly moving towards agreement that the inner world, consciousness, or spirit, is the true essence of reality, and the material world exists only if we perceive it.
This gives us enormous power and responsibility in our choices. If we can be open to ANY possibility (and quantum physics clearly tells us that if an event is even remotely possible, it could in principle occur, even miraculous transformations of material existence), then we can literally create our own reality.
Simply by freeing our minds and opening our hearts, we will inevitably perceive many more options to choose from. If we choose love, faith, and hope, then it exists and will be actualized. If we want to feel closer to the One, this is only a thought away.
So, the punchline: my personal miracle is that I feel empowered and inspired to co-create heaven on earth with all of you.
