Ordinary Miracles

Miracles don't just happen. They are not magic. We co-create them. Sometimes, we're able to see them forming and explain their appearance. Mostly though, the infinite power of the universe shaping the substance of our consciousness materializing in our day-to-day lives is beyond our comprehension.
 
The good news is we do know how to tap this miraculous power of the infinite. Jesus told us: "He ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground." (Be still. Get grounded. Be aware.) "He took the seven loaves, and after giving thanks he broke them." (Pray. Give thanks. Be grateful.) "<He> gave them to his disciples and they distributed them to the crowd." (Take action. Move your feet. Do what's yours to do.)
 
So here's the deal: To experience more miracles in your life, recognize the ordinary ones all around you: Take note of the joy of a funny story; the vastness of sky; the synchronicity of a helpful referral; the connection of a shared experience. Just the awareness of a blessing usually inspires a feeling of gratitude. Claim the miracle and give thanks. (Doesn't have to be eloquent. "Thank you, God," works fine.) Then get moving. Share it with others. Tell the joke to someone. Use your camera phone to send a photo. Share your wisdom. Open your heart to another.
 
The universe will respond.
