Miracle in Progress

There! Did you see it? There’s a miracle in progress. Where? Everywhere you look. The ants are building ant hills. Your heart is beating, beating, beating. The season is effortlessly changing again. The Earth goes around the Sun, as the Sun goes around the center of the galaxy. Everywhere you look, there’s a miracle.

You’ve heard the expression, “Don’t take your eye off the ball”. I think we should amend that to, “Don’t take your eye off the miracle.”

The moment you take your eye off the miracle, you begin to get into trouble. You start seeing “us” and “them”, “enough” and “not enough”, “future” and “past”, and you worry about all of it. Your worry turns into a soup of negative internal emotions that spill out into your world as unhappiness, anger, hatred, and even violence.

None of this is possible when you have your eye on the miracle. For in that vision of the world, you see how rare, precious, and amazing you are. You see how rare, precious and amazing everyone and everything around you is. We are all survivors, here in this place and time against overwhelming odds. Yet, here making our stand, being who we came here to be, and contributing our own uniqueness to the miracle.

So, when the moment gets you down today, remember the miracle. When you’re tempted fall into negativity and doubt, remember the miracle. It’s always right there, completely self-evident in every moment, if only you’ll look.

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

Working together, we can create a better world for ourselves and everyone else.

Expand Your Thinking Affirmation

I expand my thinking and that expands my world.

This #affirmation reminds us that the world does not limit us; our thinking limits us.

The cool thing is we have the choice every moment to expand our world of possibilities simply by expanding our thinking about our possibilities.

Follow your bliss, experience your bliss, become your bliss.

Direction Not Speed

Happy Saturday, my friends.

This one spoke to me this morning. We’re always in such a rush when slow and steady wins the race.

If you’re on course, forget the speedometer.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are awesome!
