Spirit winks...

One of my favourite quotes is

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.
Albert Einstein

Today's chapter in The Lotus and the Lily pp. 56-60) is about the times when Spirit winks - the 'little' coincidences of every day, as well as the BIG miracles of our lives...

The miracle that if the blockage in my brain had been 2 cms to the right, I wouldn't even be alive today, or at best I'd be 'locked in' a coma...

The coincidence that today's reading in my usual daily blessings book...

... is this lovely quote:

The roses under my window make no reference to former roses or better ones; they are what they are; they exist with God today. There is no time to them. There is simply the rose; it is perfect in every moment of its existence.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

May I live today as the rose - as if everything is a miracle...


  1. Love the blog! Accessedn it at last from the library. M

  2. Hi Claire, thank you for introducing me to your wonderful blog! What a beautiful inspiration for the day,

  3. Yes, I so agree: small miracles happen all the time, if we only choose to see them.

    I love the way you reflect on the Big Disaster that happened in your life, and turned it into a miracle, too…

    You are so brave and positive - but then again, you probably have to be to survive. Anyway, not everyone is able to choose that path and embrace Life as it happens.


Thank you for taking the time to comment - I really appreciate it!
It's good to know I'm not alone :)
