Miracles

I am the miracle. Prince Guatama Siddharta – Founder of Buddhism
The only way to live is to accept each minute as an unrepeatable miracle, which is exactly what it is: a miracle and unrepeatable.
Margaret Storm Jameson

How penetrating it is to see myself as the miracle. I have often thought of myself in many ways as I am sure we all do, but it has taken me some time to see myself in that way. Stop and think about how you see yourself. Do you consider yourself the miracle? I am happy if you do and ask you why you don’t if you don’t?
Every one of us is the miracle as is every particle of nature, every morsel of food, every animal, every breath we take, etc. There is no part of our universe that is not only a miracle, but is also miraculous. When I begin to see me as a miracle I can begin to comprehend the true awe of all the miracles that exist in my life by the second. I only need to open my heart and mind to the possibilities and endless miracles that occur in my life by the second, minute, hour, day and more.
 
As an alcoholic/addict, can I deny the miracle of not picking up a drink or drug today when every moment of my life prior to getting sober required a drink or drug to get me through to the next moment. There is no greater miracle in my life than that I have not had a drink/drug since 10/5/1988. Once I accept that miracle, all the others fall into line for me.
I now know that each breath I take and each word I speak or write is the miracle in that moment of time. There can be no other and when I spend my time somewhere other than in the miracle of my moment, I have missed the miracle I have been blessed with and have missed all that occurred in that moment.
My prayer for you today is that you inhale each of the miracles that occur for you today starting with you.
