Miracles

   Miracles.  Many years ago there were a few of us who entered the ministry within a few months of each other.  One of those was our friend, Rev. Helen; she, at that time, had a church in Hawaii.  While we were on holiday there we met for lunch one day.  As a preface to this let me state, we were/are practitioners of a spiritual healing technique call Spiritual Mind Treatment.  In order to enter the ministry one had to have proof of at least three individual documented case histories that had a healing; with doctor confirmation that the condition no longer existed, or other verifiable documentation. Helen, being innovative and one to speak her mind, called miracles “ordinaries,” as they happen all the time in life, both my wife and I were really impressed with her new word and shared it with my congregation upon our return home. 

Miracles are “Ordinaries” in which both of us believe as well as Divine Intervention.

Just look at what we say when we find a parking space near a mall entrance at holiday times, “It’s a miracle I found this space.”  Think about it…how many times do you say, “It’s a miracle,” more than once in awhile I’ll wager.   

Some years ago I saw an older gent collapse, through all this we had direct eye contact, a doctor who saw the event took his vitals and told those who were there to render aid that the older gentleman had passed on; no attempt to revive him.  Having worked in a hospital I was familiar with the look of death in the eyes, which he had. Still maintaining eye contact and as many watched the goings on his body suddenly arched and life returned to him and his eyes.  It was not his time and that my friends, was an awe inspiring experience for me. Miraculous, yes, it was an Oh My God Moment to the nth degree. 

Miracles are not out of the ordinary, in fact throughout the ages we have been told that we are capable of many things and are powerful if we have but the “faith of a grain of mustard seed.”   The miracles we seek are at our finger tips, so to speak, the miracle power resides within our hearts and minds. The miracle is but our recognition of the divine power within us to bring forth that which we have believed without question.

Take time to consider your inner power, the power of your spoken word, and ability within you to live the life you choose, to be as successful as you desire, to be; prosperous, wealthy, healthy, and the like.  Focus on where you want to go and stop looking at what you don’t want. Give your undivided attention to your forward moving desire/goal and stay the course.  I paraphrase Isaiah, “So shall my word go forth to accomplish that for which it was sent and it shall not return unto me void.”

By no means are you ordinary.  You are an extraordinary expression of Life Itself, experiencing lots and lots of wonderful “ordinaries.”

In loving recognition and memory of a very dear friend, Rev. Helen.

Afraid Of Being Different?

   Afraid of being different?  I know I was.  

Since childhood I did things that were different and out of the norm in the fields of creativity and self-expression.  There are many of us who have had this experience.  Being different oozes out of us no matter what we do.  Pretty sure we heard, “Different wasn’t normal”, whatever that is. Perhaps it meant being on the outside looking in or being bullied.   Both of which I experienced, still on the outside looking in but enjoying and appreciating it more than ever.

The past year has been a tough one for me and mine.   My recovery has taken longer than anticipated which has had a definite impact on all areas of life.  The one thing that has kept me going is my belief in a power greater than myself, followed by meditation-which took me two to three months to be able to do so without my head hurting from the drugs pumped into me to create a coma and fight a serious (life threatening) lung infection, pushing myself to the limit each and every day and of course positive prayer, known as scientific prayer or treatment.  So what have I learned?  Wow, things will never be the same for me, my outlook on life has had a definite change and what is important to me is now at the forefront of my life, more than ever before.  Will be pursuing a career, besides writing, which was a childhood goal.  Now that I am moving forward at a faster rate it is time for me to change the timber of this blog and in what and how it is presented.  Over the next few weeks you will see the differences emerging, slowly but surely.   I will be addressing issues in a new positive, direct way.  

There is always a turning point for us, for me it was last year.  The past two weeks have seen a change in goals and the last vestiges of not accepting being different have fallen away.  Oftentimes it takes a life changing event to induce this new perspective and goals to more fully accept being differentSo it was with me.  Perhaps we are given a second chance because the Infinite isn’t done with us yet and perhaps, just perhaps, we have something more to give and contribute to help others as well as ourselves and those in our sphere of life.     

The only constant in life and the universe is change.  There comes a time in our life we need to rebrand our creative work, to recreate ourselves, at times it is thrust upon us and we appear to be unwilling participants in the beginning.  Change gives us fodder for growth into new and exciting individuals.  Part of being different is change; it is learning to utilize our unique and diverse abilities and talents to the fullest extent for success. 

What was the turning pointing in your life?

If you would like to share your experience please leave a comment and I will post it.

Thanks,

Jay
