It occurred to me recently that, with the advent of the concept of microaggressions, there are a lot more opportunities to unintentionally say or do things that result in hurt feelings, frustration, and anger. Actually there have always been those opportunities, but the rise of the shadow and the call for healing has brought more willingness to call them out.

So over the past several months, I have been thinking about and journaling about what I call “safety zones.”

So here’s what I know happens when we ask for something: God always says YES! And it doesn’t always look like what we have decided it should. And sometimes it does. And it doesn’t always come when we think it should. And sometimes it does. This consistent inconsistency that is the nonlinear path of God (though it is really very linear if you think about it) is what keeps us wondering about the what, when, how, where, how, if, how,

I am reading “A Course in Miracles,” the overarching tenet of which is “there is no order of difficulty in miracles.” In other words, no miracle is any more important or any more difficult than any other miracle. God does not know big or small. God just is. Albert Einstein said that there are two ways to see the Universe: as though nothing is a miracle, or as if everything is.

My Christmas Miracle was just this: choosing to believe that EVERYTHING is a miracle.
