“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Albert Einstein
A monk was walking in the monastery grounds one day when he heard a bird sing.
He listened, spellbound. It seemed to him that never before had he heard, really heard, the song of a bird.
When the singing stopped he returned to the monastery and discovered, to his dismay, that he was a stranger to his fellow monks, and they to him.
It was only gradually that they and he discovered that he was returning after centuries. Because his listening was total, time had stopped and he had slipped into eternity.

Prayer is made perfect when the timeless is discovered.
The timeless is discovered through clarity of perception.
Perception is made clear when it is disengaged from preconceptions and from all consideration of personal loss or gain.
Then the miraculous is seen and the heart is filled with wonder.

~Anthony de Mello
Singing_bird : American Redstart Warbler (Setophaga ruticilla) singing in early spring “According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don't bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous. (quoted by Carol Lynn Pearson in Consider the Butterfly)” ― Deepak Chopra, Synchrodestiny
P.S: Everyone desires miracles in their lives….but not everyone  believes in them.
They say,“Let it happen first………then I will believe in them.”
That is like putting the cart before the horse.


Miracles happen in the lives of those who  believe in them.

 May your belief in miracles be so strong……that everything in your life is a miracle.
Namaste,
Bhagya
