The dawning of a new day is always an opportunity to see things in a new light. How blessed we are to have this miracle happen every morning! On this particular morning, I dropped my car off to get detailed from all the muck the winter had layered on it. As I was walking home, I noticed that the sidewalks were covered with lots of debris and garbage. It was not a pretty sight. Then I shifted my thinking to how beautiful it will look when it is all cleaned up and wild flowers are growing here. This is what I choose to hold near, dear and right here. If we get a group of volunteers to clean up the area, it can and will look beautiful. Isn’t that how Jesus envisioned how things to be. Not the illusion of what it looks like but what the truth is. The truth is, there is beauty all around us, if we choose to see it, and believe it. The truth is we are pure love. The truth is we are in good health, always. When we focus on the goodness, we will see goodness. The dawning of a new day comes every morning. Hold the truth, near, dear and right here.
More Snow is on the way. It has been a snowy and bitter cold winter for most of the north east of the United States. Here in the New York, where I reside people have had enough of winter. When I walk my dog, I engage in conversation with people who proclaim that they are done with snow, and the cold. Although I prefer the summer and warm weather, I find myself accepting the harsh conditions and realizing that there is no use in complaining about it. By gripping and avoiding what is, you are pushing away the possibilities of the good. There is something to be grateful for in everything. The snow is providing much due moisture for the flowers and trees that were parched this past summer. It is killing off the eggs of gypsy moths and other invasive insects. It is giving me an opportunity to focus on my writing and studies. By accepting what is, we are staying in the present moment, and that is where our power is. By avoiding and pushing it away, we are giving our power away, and that is where our problems begin. So, stop complaining about the snow and cold and think about the miracles that are right underneath. Start shoveling and uncover them.
Miracles happen every day. They are all around us, at all times. You have to be open to receive them. You have to believe that they are present. Miracles are in our thoughts, our connection to infinite intelligence and in the spaces of the universe. What miracle do you want to see in your life? You must fully believe in its presence without any doubt. Do you desire a healing? It is there. Do you desire peace of mind? It is there. Believe that a miracle can happen. Take all your power and will and focus on what it is you want to happen. The universe will begin to mold and make this miracle for you.
This is the season for miracles. What if we collectively believed in world peace? Really, put down our judgments, fears and anger and focused all our energy on this. Do you believe it can happen? If you do than it can. If you don’t, you don’t believe strong enough in miracles. It must be 100% believe, not 99% for the miracle to occur. Whatever miracle you are looking for, believe that it is already present, and be ready to receive. Happy Holidays.
