Seeing every moment as a gift provides revealing glimpses into the mysteries of the universe. Slip any random moment under a metaphysical microscope and you will find that it contains the DNA of God’s master plan.
Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment.
You would then understand why every thought you think, every word you speak, every step you take is an outright miracle cloaked in the guise of an ordinary moment. This awareness presents a thought-provoking paradox. You can view ordinary moments as miracles or miracles as ordinary moments.
The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Your perspective depends on how you define “ordinary.” The higher you elevate your consciousness, the more naturally you will behold the ordinary as extraordinary. Indeed, “miracle” is a word commonly used by those who do not appreciate how the universe operates.
Miracles happen, not in opposition to Nature, but in opposition to what we know of Nature.
Viewing every conversation, every decision, every incident as an occasion for insight and growth deepens your wisdom, expands your capacity to enjoy life, and inspires you to seize every opportunity to create, achieve, and become.
To me, every hour of the light and dark is a miracle,
Every cubic inch of space is a miracle.
When you live your life viewing every moment as a gift, you become a gift to the world.
If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies in yourself.
