Miracles do not happen. —Mathew Arnold—

Many of us will insist that miracles do happen. We’ve seen transformations in ourselves, or loved ones that have seemed miraculous, strokes of fate, demonstrations of divine intervention.
Yet, we must do our part. If we look at the history of our personal miracles, we can usually see that time, pain, and patience prepared the way. Nothing comes from nothing. The changes that transform our lives are born from the suffering that is itself a reason for change.
Whether or not we believe a higher power intervenes directly in this world’s affairs, we realize, if we think about it, that humans must be ready. To catch a falling star, we must be standing under it.
Today I’ll try to position myself in readiness for whatever miracle might come my way.

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self pity will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Self-seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change. Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.
