Life is filled with miracles in every moment. How do we experience
them if we do not believe they exist? Or, what if we want to
believe they exist, but we have not experienced what we believe
"a miracle" to be - something out of the ordinary,
not having to do with our everyday lives.
just being alive is a miracle. We take our lives for granted.
We say, "This is the way things are. They will never change. I am stuck
here. Life is hard, then you die." It takes a shift inside
ourselves to see the miracle of our lives and life itself. This
shift is called Awakening.
It is a miracle. When Awakening begins, life is
never again taken for granted. The lifestream of the individual
is lived at the level of miracles. Not just now and then, but
to moment. Miracles and Awakening are all about
gratitude. Giving thanks for every moment in life, even if our
mind wants to judge
a particular moment as wrong, bad, not good enough. Miracles
and Awakening are about accepting each moment as
it is without expectation or attachment. Being
in each moment. Then the miracles begin to happen. What we may
have judged the moment before, now becomes a miracle. We are
Awake enough to be present in the moment, give
thanks, and see the miracle that has occurred right
before our very eyes.
Just as there seems to be no end to the moments
in our lives, so too are the miracles in our lives. Seemingly
endless until the final miracle when we pass from our physical
form into the Formless.
When we leave the confines of our physical bodies and return
to the Formless of All
In our society, the final miracle is called
Death. Our egos have
tremendous fear around
Death. It appears to the ego to be "The End". It sees
Death as the ultimate state of aloneness, emptiness, utter despair.
Complete annihilation of itself. Only a miracle can change
this perspective. The miracle is called Awakening.
As one Awakens, the miracle of life is more and
more fully lived. With this aliveness comes a deep peace,
the peace which passeth understanding. In this peace is found
a wisdom. The wisdom
of the final miracle. When one is living in an Awakened
state, the final miracle is not something to be dreaded, but
rather something to be embraced, to be recognized as part of
of Consciousness that is unending and eternal.
For every in-breath there is an out-breath. The final miracle
is an out-breath that leads to the next in-breath taken in the
Formless as One with All That Is, the eternal.
To Awaken is to know miracles.
To know miracles
is to Awaken. The final miracle of Death is made
possible by and through our Awakening. When you
are Awake, you do not fear Death. It becomes your
companion, teacher, and friend. It is not your enemy or your
curse. It is that which makes your aliveness even sweeter. It
brings tears to your eyes, but these tears are sweet sorrow.
It deepens your compassion and gives you courage to walk through
the Valley of the Shadow
of Death with others in their passage to the Formless. It heightens
the sense of NOW. It removes the superficial from your interactions
with others. It helps birth the Authentic
Self and brings the ego into alignment
Death is the final miracle, the final healing,
the ultimate blessing, the great beginning, the next step in
of Consciousness as God.
