How to stop incessant thinking
Apathy about what doesn't matter isn't apathy.

Do miracles exist? What is a miracle?

To imagine a loveless miracle is to misunderstand both miracles and love.

What do you imagine when you think of miracles? Perhaps physical healing? The miracle of life? Winning the lottery?

It would be impossible for a person to heal while in a state of fear. Love is the opposite of fear, the antidote to all suffering and the source of all healing. Child birth is only a miracle if the child is brought into a world where love and beauty is possible. And if a great fortune is given to a person who does not know self-love, that fortune will likely only fund self-destructive behavior and lead to misery.

Love is the source of all miracles, or as A Course in Miracles beautifully states:

The real miracle is the love that inspires them. Miracles are everyone’s right, but purification is necessary first.

Purification is the escape the ego. That is what we are learning here. We continue tomorrow.

Everything that comes from love is a miracle. A course in Miracles : Combined Volume
