What Are Miracles?



Thinking about miracles will surely bring such ‘supernatural’ occurrences (we can ask ourselves what is supernatural?) such as the bleeding of Therese Neumann, a German Catholic mystic, who exhibited the nail markings of Christ and bled every Friday, or the case of Saint Juan Diego’s reported vision of Our Lady of Guadalupe in 1531, more currently maybe even the healing of a terminally-ill person, or maybe a lottery win before financial disaster comes to mind.

What about looking at nature and seeing the wonders of the sprouting of a seed, or the birth of a child? Many things can be looked at as miracles. But it is all in our perception. Again we perceive life individually and therefore experience even miracles differently.

Our essential being, our core, is inward and as such strengthens from within, not from without. All we hear, see, touch, taste, and smell in this outward world is an internal reflection of the mind of man, thoughts and feelings manifest. We ignore this inward soul-connection most of the time, but the wise man (Understander) thinks and manifests his desires easily.

We barely notice our natural universal relationship and neglect our responsibility to it through ignorance of the law. This innate core of being has lain bare and unused since we were born. Why? Because we didn’t know better! Remember the old saying ‘if they knew better, they would do better,’ indeed... but now is the time to wake up and start taking responsibility.

So let us be wise and learn how to use this positive life energy in our daily lives, because knowingly or not, it has produced our experiences according to our mind convictions; right or wrong.

Now that we are on the path of awakening and are consciously striving to lift this veil of ignorance and deception, we are glimpsing the Truth and seeing miracles. Once understood as truth, and as simple workings of the law or mind projections, they are mere reflections of new and improved thought convictions and therefore cannot be called miracles anymore. A miracle as Webster defines it, is ‘an unusual or wonderful event believed to be caused by the power of God’ and/or ‘a very amazing or unusual event, thing, or achievement’.

A miraculous occurrence will only seem so to the uninformed or unaware individual, but the Understander accomplishes all desires instantaneously through knowing the truth. He allows the divine power to flow through him. Therefore the Understander comes out of the dark corners of his soul, which stores self-pity, defeat, fear, doubt, and among many other negative emotions and embraces his true heritage which is the light of love, joy and harmony. An acknowledgement of these powers is what makes a miracle an everyday occurrence.

Think about this! The life of the five senses, which is the life you live now, has not satisfied you up to this point. Earthly pleasures only last so long, fading away quickly, and you cry out for more. As more is bestowed upon you, you again long for additional pleasures, ever trying to fill the empty hole inside of you. When will all humanity awaken to this fact? When will the cries for spirituality start and when will people see that ‘the kingdom of heaven is at hand’? When will we act on our instinctive longings for more peace and fulfillment? When will we provide ourselves with enough Soul-food and share this new feast of the Spirit with our brothers and sisters?

Waking up to the Truth, we watch poverty turn into riches, sickness into health, healed relationships and happiness return through our newly-found, and diligently-applied, creative energy. These improved conditions will look like miracles. “I never imagined that I could accomplish that” you say, or “Can you believe I was healed?” Yes, I do believe, because as we open ourselves to this Truth-substance and accept its full power, we draw this mighty energy into our lives. Wondrous happenings, unexplained healing, and all good desires are mere workings of Universal Law — if understood.
