Just Another Ordinary Miracle Today

                                                                        Vector - Rainbow in the Clouds 06 by DragonArt

On my way to work, pondering what the day would bring; since I work in a psychiatric hospital, I never know for sure, a song by one of my favorite singer-songwriters…Sarah Mclachlan was issuing forth from my car radio. I had heard it before, but today it had a different feel to it. Lately, I have noticed a heightened sense of awareness and appreciation for my life, the experiences and people I encounter and when there is musical accompaniment, so much the better. It is like a commentary on what I have either desired to feel or already am feeling.

What if all if took to change your perspective was a desire to do so, an awareness that it is possible, the willingness to take the step away from the familiar and sometimes limiting path and then taking it? How stuck do you feel in the routine that you have known and wonder if, to quote the song made famous by Peggy Lee “Is that all there is?”  I know for certain that the experiences I have had and the people I know and love are not the only ones I will continue to have or know and love. Each of us has an infinite capacity to stretch to incoporate the new. Sometimes we need to see things through miracle consciousness and release what is cluttering the space in our heads and hearts to make room for the shining stuff (no, not bling that you wear on the outside, but that which glows from inside you). THAT is  miracle, not necessarily bells and whistles and lightning flashes across the sky.

At the end of services at one of the interfaith communities which I attend, called Circle of Miracles the minister, Hannelore Goodwin wishes us ‘unrestricted miracles for the week to come.  What would that look like in your life? 

Wishing you a lifetime of  ‘ordinary miracles’ .

Through The Eyes of Love
Yesterday, my friend Joan made a comment on Facebook about a painful interaction with someone in her life. "I've been looking at myself through the eyes of someone who doesn't love me, but trying to see love." My response to her was this: "If you are looking at yourself through the eyes of someo

Sara's Smiles- Lift The Cloud, Inspire The Joy
  The Philadelphia Flower Show is an annual event that heralds the coming of Spring. This Winter weary woman who hadn't attended in decades, was eager to immerse in beauty. Little did I know that it would go far beyond the blossoms and butterflies that lent their color and wonder. I was offe

We Never Know Who We Will Touch With Our Words
It is no secret that I am addicted to words. As a career writer, I live and breathe their essence. They delight me to no end. They are the beat of my heart and the blood that flows through my veins.

Inhaling and Exhaling
Breathing is necessary in order to sustain our corporeal existence. Inhaling and exhaling, over and over. The average human takes 12 breaths per minute which comes out to 17,280 each day. This doesn't factor in times of exercise. It is something that most people do without even thinking about it, un

Love Is All I Am
Lately, the Muse has been waking me up long around 4 a.m. Not sure why, but when that happens, I know it is important to take dictation. And so I do. A name came through first- Tyler Goldsmith. He is the lead singer for one of my favorite folk/rock groups called Dawes. Then the words "Love is all I
