May 29, 2019 – JOLT – Did you catch that miracle?
“Miracles happen every day, change your perception of what a miracle is and you’ll see them all around you.” – Jon Bon Jovi
Routine can be comforting…
and gives us a sense of stability, security and foundation. It helps us feel centered.
At the extreme, however, same ‘o same ‘o can slowly whittle away our sense of the miraculous.
Ever wonder why folks who engage in, say, a weekend inspirational workshop come out lit up and vibrant? It’s because their routine was broken up…and some awareness and mindfulness of the possibility of their life was put in.
Of course, without keeping the new mindset up and engaging in new structures or alternative routines, the old ways creep back…and we get back to knowing ourselves (and our life) in the same way we always have.
It takes work and diligent attention to live as if every day were a miracle. We have to wake ourselves up from the standard expectations of a standard day…all those standards of which satisfy our desire for security and comfort zones.
Fortunately or unfortunately — depending on how you look at it — some folks come close to exiting this life through some nearly-missed fatal health scare or accident. The close call wakes them up to the colors of the morning, the feel of hugging their loved ones, the grace of having a body that functions, the privilege it is to interact with friends and coworkers.
If we can learn from their experience, we can begin noticing the miraculous before we’re forced to.
What if experiencing the miraculous can come about simply by opening yourself up for one to occur for you today? What if it were that simple?
I’ll be watching alertly today, alongside of you.
Got miracle mindedness?
“Miracles happen every day. Not just in remote country villages or at holy sites halfway across the globe, but here in our own lives.” – Deepak Chopra
