What is a miracle?
“There is no order of difficulty in miracles. One is not ‘harder’ or ‘bigger’ than another. They are all the same. All expressions of love are maximal. ACIM T-1.I:1-4
This is the first of 50 miracle principles and it is a humdinger.
A miracle is a choice we make in our mind. It has nothing to do with external things. A miracle is a choice for God instead of the ego. A miracle is a choice for Love instead of guilt and fear.
When we consider that we have this choice in our decision making mind, we come to understand that sorting out of our problems are very simple. Love or fear. In making this choice, there is no order of difficulties. The principle suggests the difficulties are not really harder or easier, or bigger or smaller, or worse or better. Difficulties simply indicate that we have made the wrong choice.
Do you want to live your life as a victim or as an extension of God’s Love?
One of the key ideas in A Course In Miracles is “forgiveness” which means the willingness to give up making other people and things responsible for your unhappiness. Jesus says as He is being crucified, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” I imagine He said this with a laugh.
Most of us these days, are not going to be crucified, but sometimes we may think and feel as if we are. We should never forget that we have the power to change our minds about who and what it is that we think we are.
Today remind yourself, “I am not a victim. I am an extension of God’s love.” This choice is the miracle.
