Whether or not Albert Einstein actually uttered the words “There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is.” is not essential to this discussion (although it would be delightful if it were true) because it does lead us to thinking about how we think, and why.
Do we go through life as a fatalist, believing that there is no Spiritual Realm working with us, or do we approach each day as the unfoldment of a deeper connection with something beyond our five senses. I have known people who believe in the former approach to life. We are born, stuff happens, we die, end of story. One thing these people had in common is they believed there was little point to living life. One simply had to survive to succeed.
I, on the other hand, choose to believe (and choose is the operative word here) that our approach to life is the key factor in the degree of happiness we experience day-to-day. My approach to life is to know that I (and by extension you) am a spiritual being having a physical experience. To the Aboriginal peoples of Australia, this is a fact of life. They refer to this physical expression as “dream time” meaning our physical being is merely a diversion from our real life.
The authenticity of miracles is difficult to deny except for those who choose to be fatalistic. Dumb Luck does not, for me, explain so many of the experiences I have had in my life, how about you?
So, here is your challenge for today; if you do believe in miracles, why? If you don’t believe in miracles, why? There is nothing more powerful than challenging your own belief system.
