|Miracles, in the sense of phenomena we cannot
surround us on every hand: life itself is the miracle of miracles.
George Bernard Shaw
The most wonderful thing about miracles
that they sometimes happen.

Each of my days are miracles.
I won't waste my day;
I won't throw away miracles.
Once all struggle is grasped, miracles are possible.
|All change is a miracle to contemplate; but
it is a miracle
which is taking place every second.
Henry David Thoreau
You can become blind by seeing each day as a
Each day is a different one, each day brings a
miracle of its

to this miracle.

asking for miracles, we are seeking a practical goal:
a return to inner peace. We're not asking for something
outside us to change, but for something inside us to change.
miracle is nothing more or less than this. Anyone who has
a knowledge of his or her true identity, of one's oneness with the
wisdom and power, this makes it possible for laws
ordinary mind knows of to be revealed to him or her.
The inexplicable happens all the
time. It makes more sense to simply
accept things we observe but cannot understand. It is
really more scientific
to keep an open mind. Until we can understand and
explain the things
we now label miracles, let us accept them and try to create
more of them.

As to me I know nothing else but miracles,
Whether I walk the streets of Manhattan,
Or dart my sight over the roofs and houses towards
Or wade with naked feet along the beach just in the
edge of the water,
Or stand under the trees in the woods,
Or talk by day with any one I love, or sleep in the
bed at night with any one I love,

Or look at strangers opposite me riding in the car,

the perfect old woman,
Or the sick in hospitals, or the dead carried to
Or my own eyes and figure in the glass;
These, with the rest, one and all, are to me

To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle,
Every cubic inch of space is a miracle,
Every square yard of the surface of the earth is
spread with the same,
Every foot of the interior swarms with the same;
Every spear of grass--the frames, limbs, organs, of
men and women, and all that concerns them,
All these to me are unspeakably perfect miracles.
To me the sea is a continual miracle,
The fishes that swim--the rocks--the motion of the
waves--the ships, with men in them,
