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. Truly knowing that every breath, thought, word, and deed is a miracle; all is moving forward as it should; and I am exactly who and where I am supposed to be. In every moment, I have the miraculous ability to choose how to act and react. Every moment that I choose love, compassion, and kindness, is a miracle. I always thought that those were bigger miracles because, well, they seem more miraculous somehow. But I realize that even when I forget to love, or am withholding compassion, or am blind to the kind response, it is still a miracle. It is the Miracle of Practice.

Every time I am not loving, compassionate or kind, I get the opportunity to notice that and practice shifting it. Whether this is for someone else or for myself, I get the miraculous opportunity to practice being more loving, more compassionate, and more kind. With every opportunity to practice, my actions and reactions become more strongly attuned to caring, loving and serving the highest and best for myself and others.

Today, I am grateful for the deepening awareness of the Miracle of Practice, and the amazing power I have to choose who I am!

“I am shining the light of Loving-Kindness, Joy, Compassion, and Equanimity.” (I Am Who I Am, p. 131)

Blessings, gratitude and love,
