Is everything a miracle?

Albert Einstein was quoted as saying; "There are two ways to live your life: One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." How are you living? Could you imagine going through your day cherishing every single moment as a miracle?


I'll tell you, every time you actually do choose to anchor in, and honor the current moment, you will likely notice miracles everywhere.


A dedicated mindfulness practice will give you this gift. With practice and curiosity you have an opportunity to awaken a different perception of the world around you. Choosing to bring your focus and awareness to the present moment, without judgment, allows you to notice your blindspots, bias and conditioning.

There are two ways to live your life: One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. -Albert Einstein

With this awareness, you can break the continuous cycle of ruminating over your past and planning or worrying for your future.


And really, that alone, that freedom feels like a miracle!


That's not to say a mindfulness practice will insulate you from challenges and stress. No, we have to live in this world, and being a human being is a complex experience.


With this self-awareness and wisdom, you can change your relationship to stress and stimulation. You can create space for yourself and pause. Instead of being reactive to circumstances and situations, you will have agency to choose a response that is from a place of generosity, patience, acceptance and flexibility. One foundational mindfulness practice is using your available senses to anchor yourself in the moment. Would you like to give it a try? First, pause in the moment, take an intentional breath, and then notice one thing with each sense.

TAKE FIVE:

  • Focus on one sound you hear this moment.

  • What is one thing you see?

  • Breathe in and notice what you smell.

  • Notice one thing you feel (with your hands, or the sensation of where and how your body is making contact with a surface)

  • This is tricky, but breath in through your mouth and notice how the air feels or taste on your tongue

Take a few more intentional breaths, notice how you feel.


The more you explore a practice like this, the more likely you are to notice that there are miracles, truly awe-inspiring wonders almost everywhere you turn.


be well friends.
