The miracle, unconditional love, is a matter of faith.


According to the teaching of A Course In Miracles, a miracle is a shift in perception and apprehension from the world of the ego, conditional love, to the world of Spirit, unconditional love. When we perceive and apprehend things from the world of Spirit, unconditional love, we may not always see any observable effects, but the perception and apprehension from the world of the Spirit effects the perceiver and apprehender even when there appears to be no changes in the external world of the ego. 

Faith is the belief in the unseen and the unprovable. We intuitively know even when there is no external confirmation. For example, Unitarian Universalists covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. The inherent worth and dignity is based on faith not always on external perceptions of behavior, attitudes, beliefs, and values that a person appears to manifest.

This faith is a matter of choice about what to put our minds on. Would we come from a place of unconditional love or conditional love? It is up to each one of us to decide when we become aware that we have a choice.
