There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; or you can live as if everything is a miracle.”
Quote Attributed to Einstein.
The first time I read this quote I IMMEDIATELY resonated with it. Well before I found myself traveling this spiritual path I’m on now, I ALWAYS felt that EVERYTHING was a miracle. As anyone who knows me personally or knows me through my writing can attest, my faith is unbreakable.
What surprised me most about the quote is who said it:
Einstein, REALLY?! Einstein?
Here we have perhaps the quintessential scientist of the 20th century talking about miracles? Faith, Miracles and Science aren’t supposed to cohabitate; and yet Einstein brings them together? That’s a miracle in itself.
I spoke about this VERY topic in March at Madison Connecticut’s very own Happiness Club chapter. I truly do see that everything IS a miracle. From the Minuscule (in some eyes) getting parking spaces where I want them, to getting stop lights to work in my favor; to the monumental, the breath I take every day of my life. And the fact that I can walk at all.
WHAT? you’re asking. I don’t intend to repeat myself again. You can read Dynamism in Walking to see what I’m referring to.
Miracles DO happen all the time. You have to recognize everything as a miracle before you see everything as a miracle. That’s what Einstein is trying to impress on everyone. Those fortunate enough to see the world this way are truly blessed. Wouldn’t you like to see everything as a miracle, as gift from God? It’s easy. Start small!
The next time you’re out driving, before you leave, ask for a parking space close to where you want to be. I’ve written about this before too in Trusting Divine Guidance. This works and when these SMALL events begin to occur in your life you’ll see the divine works in everyone’s life and miracles REALLY aren’t discriminatory.
Be Happy! Be Well! Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
