Miracles – For Reflection

Thích Nhất Hạnh (Vietnamese Buddhist Monk and Peace Activist) wrote:
People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.

What miracles will you notice today? What miracles can you help others appreciate by the way you live your life?

Justice & Peace Heart

I invite you to a day of reflection on these questions.

#30DaysOfLoveAndReflection – Day 23

Introduction to 30 Days of Love and Reflection


My Reflection

I have appreciated this quote for many years. It reminds me, too, of the Peter Mayer song Holy Now, which you can listen to here.

Today I found miracles in the faces and lives of the women of our Alliance. I love that every Tuesday I can wander from my office to the social hall and find this amazing group of people who have lived such noble and interesting lives and who continue to live with courage and love. I am inspired by them in the living of my own life. I hope I can be like them in helping other to remember what is really important and to avoid getting caught in things that are not essential.
