Life is a continuing miracle, from day one to whatever comes after this life. We've come to think of miracles as not requiring any work. We think of them as coming from elsewhere - Heaven or God or scientists. But the miracles come from the heart, and acting from the heart; that's how the Universe works.
I remember my Mom (an everyday miracle who raised 7 sons) singing that old song that goes "Well you laid around and played around this old house too long; summer's come and gone, winter's comin' on." Well, with global average warming, and its interacting with so many other environmental changes at this point in history - we may not get winter any more. Some say we waited too long to cut greenhouse gases to stop the catastrophe that's unfolding. I'm growing the tropical fruit tree papaya to contribute to a better future. There are others faithfully continuing positive work, such Rev John Creasy of Garfield Community Farm, where they're growing unexpected tropical fruits lemon, guava, and bananas. We have no reason to want to just lay around telling ourselves we're helpless.
We need to focus on all the things we can do to make the future better. Paramahansa Yogananda of India said, "Govern your mind well by dwelling on the positive aspects of life." Some Americans (self included) believe there are miracles associated with the lives of Christian saints. Yogananda's life (he passed over about seventy years ago), was full of travel (including to the United States, where he met with agricultural pioneer/wizard miracle-maker Luther Burbank). His early life in India was full of wonder, learning, and witnessing miracles. Traveling in Europe learning he met with and witnessed miracles of now-canonized Catholic saint Therese Neumann. His book Autobiography of a Yogi, free online, delves into thinkers alive at that time such as Einstein and concludes that not only is all reality miraculous, but that the laws of physics are more flexible than we realize. If you want to better understand modern science, read in this book his synthesis of both spirituality and scientific thought - quantum physics, and his integration of both Western and Eastern belief. Every checkout counter scanner uses applied quantum mechanics; But the logic that we're getting from from the math and the experiments seems paradoxical, impossible, magical thinking even to scientists today. But time and space ARE relative, and they DO bend and stretch; and we humans are learning to see this (apparently some few always have).
My core belief is that God is Love. It's that simple, and that beautiful. That is the original miracle, creation. Love is God. We can talk about self-organizing principles and emergent patterns and causes for this and causes for that, and how everything is connected to everything else by causes and effects and...but what about the original cause? What caused things to start happening in the first place? I say Love.
Another agricultural pioneer leader miracle worker was George Washington Carver. He talked with his plants. They told him what they wanted. It's gonna take the biggest miracle we've pulled off yet to help birth and co-create this new age we're all dreaming when we really sleep well. When was the last time you really slept well? My mom used to tuck us in with "Good night, sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite." Well, that particular bit of wisdom my generation wasn't ready to learn...until now with the failure of all our wonderful weapons to wage war on nature such as ddt to kill bugs... bedbugs which had been pretty much eradicated in the United States...are back. Now I get it. Sleep tight meant keep the sheets tight. By the time we 7 boys were born in Greenfield, Catherine McCue had seen the more or less complete eradication in the United States. I had thought bedbugs were just some mythical scary tale.
The basic computer code 0 and 1 yin yang on off bad good up down love hate...dem repub,...They all spiral down to one decision: Do I love or do I fear? It's that simple and clear. If you fear you help make your own fears become a reality; this is a co-creation we live in. We have self-fulfilling prophecies in our individual spiraling tunnel realities. All our reacting in fear has helped create the bed bug problem by effects of all those pesticides has killed what birds didn't starve for lack of bugs to eat. Now there are not as many birds to eat the bedbugs and mosquitoes and other bloodsuckers . If you love, you attract the miraculous and, though you've a life full of work, struggle, wresting in this world of changes, you'll be happy, just one moment at a time.
