"It's not just that there are miracles happening around you -- it's that you are making the miracles, yourself."
"Instead of praying in your need, you would pray in the overwhelming abundance and gratitude of your life."
You work miracles every day.
It’s not just that there are miracles happening around you - it’s that you are making the miracles, yourself.
Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross told the story of a child in the hospital ICU.
During his morning rounds, a doctor (with a small bald spot on the crown of his head) came over to her bed. She looked up at the tall man standing beside her.
“I know you!" the little girl said. "You were at my bed last night.”
The astonished physician, knowing he had been performing CPR on her in the ER the night before (and knowing she had been without pulse and breathing when he was with her), asked, “How do you know?”
She answered, “I was looking down at you working on me and saw your bald place on your head.”
If you could see from outside yourself - if you could look down at yourself traveling your journey through life, nothing would surprise you, scare you or seem impossible. You would see who you really are! You would see your miracles.
You would be so happy, feel so good, you would free yourself of all the impossibilities of directing your world and your life.
Instead of praying in your need, you would pray in the overwhelming gratitude and abundance of your life. You would love everything about life, and not notice things you don’t like.
Go on - keep busy with performing miracles! Stay in your gratitude and abundance.
Stay in your love, you crazy miracle!
