I remember the day I realized that miracles were not the Moses-parting-the-Red-Sea, Jesus-walking-on-water biblical type, but rather much smaller events. More like my friend Cathy walking into my office right as I thought of her and wanted to speak with her. At first I thought it odd or coincidental, but then I decided to consider that perhaps it was a miracle. Realists and optimists will argue over what it was until they are blue in the face, but technically, it doesn’t matter what you call it.

What matters is your awareness of the event and the acknowledgement of its occurrence, for once you are aware of these little miracles, you will start to see them everywhere and every day. Hundreds of them, if you are really aware.

And that is what is important; to be aware and awake so that you see them every day.

They wait, and they wait, and they wait. It is easy to see that they are waiting for that unmistakable sign to hit them over the head. Fireworks. Bells. A sunbeam parting the sky and shining upon them. A letter in their mailbox from God. Mostly, these people just spend their whole lives waiting. Waiting for that moment to have their life be directed.

In the meantime, however, while they are so busy waiting and looking for that one big sign, they miss all the little ones shouting at them each and every day. And the amazing thing about these little ones is that they serve as a compass guiding us in our everyday life, pointing us in a direction we wish to go. And when put together and followed, all these little miracles form a path known as “being in flow.” Suddenly life becomes not only effortless, but also perfectly aligned with the desires and joys we hold in our heart.

As Albert Einstein once said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

I’ve noticed that those who see nothing as a miracle often struggle against life, worrying and trying to control all the outcomes. Those who see everything as a miracle, tend to experience more joy and freedom and constantly bathe in that magical state known as “being in flow.” From all I have witnessed in life, the latter is a much more fun and fulfilling way to live life than the former.
