There are two ways to live life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.Albert Einstein
I picked and ate a ripe blackberry this morning. It was, and is, a miracle.
Autumn is upon us. I can tell by the change of weather, the air, and the light. Fall is fire season where I live. And sadly, fire season started early – in August. Luckily, I was safe but many others were not.
Whoever thinks that climate change isn’t real might need to seriously rethink.
Instead of that, I will focus on miracles as I somehow keep coming back to them because I believe that they exist. Albert Einstein said, “There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” So…let me stick with my blackberry miracle and reflect on how Mother Nature is just amazing.
I wrote the following about my body:
I need a miracle every day
Luckily my body is a miracle
So I remember to treat it that way
For those who don’t believe in miracles perhaps they need to take a closer look at their bodies and how they function with mostly miraculous precision, intelligence and integration.
When you go beyond the basic such as breathing which your body will generally do on its own, and train it to breathe more and more deeply the effects are remarkable.
Training and practice are the key; nurturance matters.
Positive self-talk are not “throw away words”. Be kind, compassionate and generous with yourself. Your body will love you more for that. Perhaps you will come around to realizing that your body is a miracle. I do hope that is the case. If that doesn’t work for you, focus on a ripe blackberry, blueberry, or a locally grown apple with its amazing flavor. It will be easy to taste that miracle I hope that are you able to do this.
Tell me what miracle happened for, or to, you recently.
