Gary Zukav on Wonders and Miracles
Posted: Thu 03/08/2012 08:00 AM
This is a time of wonders and miracles, but it doesn't always seem that way. If you think you know what miracles look like, or what they need to look like, you will miss one miracle after another. You won't even see the trees, so to speak, much less the forests.
Our social structures are dissolving, and that is part of the miracle of the birth of a new human species, just as a flower blooming in the spring is a miracle, or a bird singing. You are part of the miracle too. Miracles in miracles in miracles never ending is a vision that most of us forget in our everyday immersion in the miracles of our lives. Some of them are pleasant to experience, and some are painful. Some are ecstatic, and some are excruciating. When we think that miracles cannot be painful, we turn our backs on the wisdom and compassion behind the experiences of our lives, and we cannot see how perfect each is for us, given the choices that we have made.
The new human species is not necessarily more wise and compassionate than the species it is replacing. It is more aware. It sees the consequences of fear and the consequences of love and each human experience as an opportunity to choose love. It also sees now that fear creates only violence and destruction.
The choices we make are intimate and personal. The consequences they create go far beyond what we can see or imagine, and they are real. The new human species is becoming aware of that, and that is why so many of us are now striving to become aware of the choices we make and the consequences they create.
