Rumi said, “Never lose hope, my heart, miracles dwell in the invisible. If the whole world turns against you keep your eyes on the Friend.”
Someone said to me once “I don’t believe in anything that I can’t see, touch, or is proven by science. Miracles happen in books and movies and not real lives.”
My reply was I think you can’t see the elephant in the room. Can’t you see that you were a microscopic sperm just three decades ago and now you are driving around in a big Range Rover? Is all this short of a miracle?
Albert Einstein said “There are only two ways to live life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle”
There’s a memorable line from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, which assigns the role of eyes to the heart – “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” Helen Keller
“I truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we’re all teachers – if we’re willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks or wait for some miracle to come knocking at our door.” Marla Gibbs
Personally, I belong to the other category and tend to notice small synchronicities that keep happening every other day, and one can’t ignore them as chance. Life is a series of minuscule miracles that keep happening, but we don’t notice them.
“Everything you see has its roots in the unseen world. The forms may change, yet the essence remains the same. Every wonderful sight will vanish, and every sweet word will fade, But do not be disheartened, The source they come from is eternal, growing, Branching out, giving new life and new joy. Why do you weep? The Source is within you And this whole world is springing up from it.”
