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’ .
