Do you believe in magic or miracles?

As long as your sense of vulnerability persists, you should not attempt to perform miracles. T-2.V.2:6

Those who believe in scarcity feel vulnerable. A feeling of vulnerability is antithetical to working miracles. The miracle is possible only with the awareness of who and what we are. Without that level of awareness, what looks like a miracle is merely magic.

In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested in the first three steps that we give up our belief in magic and join our willfulness with what we believe is the will of God. This joining is a decision which we all have the power to make at any time we are ready. The action based on the decision is not a loss but a fulfillment. 

In Unitarian Universalism we join together to accept one another and encourage each others’  spiritual growth. This acceptance and encouragement is based on confidence generated from faith in the unconditional love of our Transcendent Source.

Today, it is suggested that we exchange our belief in magic for the miracle which comes from giving up our belief in conditional love for unconditional love.
