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.
