Another night I watched Oprah’s Leadership Academy for Girls. The show was about Oprah’s idea to create a prestigious school for female South African teenagers who have the quality and attitude of leaders. The school opened early January of in 2010 2007.
All girls featured on the show originated from poor neighborhoods. Besides, despite their early age, all have noticed very harsh circumstances: loss in parents and close relatives, abandonment, impoverishment… However, what stroke me most as I watched the show was girls’spirit. These were all looking up for a richer future, hoping and working for an improved life compared to one their parents or grandparents had. All show determination to succeed, to achieve.
When I contemplate it, Oprah’s project to create a school for these girls that she hasn’t met before is a plain miracle. a course in miracles audio Usually we call an event magic whenever we think it is impossible for this to happen below, right now. How could these bright girls quit their world of poverty and pursue an entire new road of high standing education without magic? And how would they afford such education? Guess what? not just they got the education but they did not have to pay for a dime for this either. That’s a miracle.
Thus, miracle is not solely some supernatural, unexplained circumstances. Miracle also happens when someone hears this call of his/her life, pays attention to and acts on it. Like the rest, miracles can be found in different sizes, some small and some large, but they’re all miracles. They are able to result from you and me.
Don’t you believe magic happens when you determine to be kinder for your requirements spouse? spend more time with your kids? give some funds to the needy? volunteer your time and energy to the area library? visit an aged neighbor? smile to a stranger?
Miracles happen whenever we stop being indifferent.
But just as miracles can result from simple human, they can as well result from God, that’s when no human is active in the accomplishment of the miracle. Today a patient has cancer, tomorrow he is healed, completely cancer free. Why? how? nobody knows, but it’s an undeniable fact that the patient is healed.
Do not await magic to happen to improve your life. Allow you to ultimately engage in it. When you hear the decision, answer it. It is a soft but clear and persistent voice in you mind. Do not shut it down.
