"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." ~Albert Einstein
But then, like the bright warm rays of sunshine flowing out from the clouds, I will be touched by grace, by beauty, by love and friendship. And, just like that, the stormy seas of my emotions calm, the sun appears, I find the center of peace. There are so many constant beacons of beauty and abundance, goodness and miracles, that I am usually powerfully reminded if I can just open my eyes and heart to receive them. It is a kind of dance of willingness. You see, the miracles are there, but you have to be willing to open in order to receive them. If you keep your mind and heart stubbornly closed, they cannot enter.
I love this quote by Rumi. It always speaks to me when I feel damaged by life quirks and challenges: "The wound is the place where the light enters you." Yes.
If you feel hurt, damaged in some way by life's chaotic moments, can you quiet the internal racket and focus on being willing to believe in at least the possibility of a miracle?
