The miracle is right here

October 29, 2013

Don’t get me wrong. The miracle of timelessness, of spirit, of the ever-present Now – this is not lost to me. It can’t be. It is what is. These are truths which don’t need  my belief, my perception, my acceptance or even acknowledgment to be.

But that’s just the point isn’t it?

Here we are on an earth that seems so stable, so – just always here. How exciting to feel that we have come from the stars, from the stars. We forget, the Earth is also in space, hurtling through space, in fact. As beautiful a being in the firmament of the heavens as is Venus or the other planets and stars that twinkle in our skies. If, of course, we are lucky to see them, in the too well-lit cities we may occupy.

The real miracle is not that we can one day travel in space; the miracle is that we are on a spaceship; we are already traveling through space. And we don’t need bulky spaceships or months of training to do so. This miraculous planet has the ecosystem to sustain our life.

Now we know, and have experienced that time is not a constant, at least not as much as our clocks show us. Yet, isn’t that the real miracle? The sun still rises at a clock-time that our scientists can predict with far better accuracy than the fabled changeable weather. So does the moon. Rise and set – all known in advance. Even eclipses, when three space bodies align in miraculous ways, can be predicted, using those same clocks and calendars that sometimes we tend to decry as being ‘not real.’ We wake up, sleep, get dressed, go to work if we have a place to go to, or go about our daily activities, repeating them again and again, feeling a constancy of a body that is constantly changing, of memories that are never certain, or personalities that are tenuous.

Yes, nothing that we have made, as human beings, is ‘real’ or ‘really real’ or truth with a capital T.  Even the sun does not really rise or set – it is the earth that moves in alignment with it. Yet, we live our lives with its rise and set, and so do our plants, animals – all living beings. Even non-living beings on earth are affected by the seasons, the climate, the clock times as we plant our seeds and harvest them.

We have all together, created a miraculous home. We are the essence of that Truth playing around in this miraculous playground. Enjoy it.  For this is one miracle that does need our belief, our perception, our acknowledging to be. If we do not all play in this Grand Illusion, it ceases to be. Now what can be more miraculous than this – that billions of us are together seeing something that is not really real, as real? Solid? Here? Dying a thousand deaths which awaken us to life, and living a thousand moments that are as death.

In the Sync Gaia Hug initiative, we are seeking to remind people to come into sync. Look at the miracle of this – we are already in sync, and we have even hidden from ourselves this fact. Now we are waking up, and perhaps that is why this blog started with I words and has ended in We words.

Isn’t life just – miraculous?

    What a great post! Like Shakespeare said, “All the world’s a stage, and we are merely players.” What IS real? Is this just a dream? I love this thinking, it resonates with me…thank you!

    Beautiful words to describe and inspiring point of view. I love thinking about how small I am in size. I find it really cozy and comforting to feel wrapped in so many layers of universal support.

      Kate, that’s a comforting thought. A hug expressed in this lovely phrase:”wrapped in so many layers of universal support” :0

    The image of earth “hurtling through space” is such a powerful one. I find it awe inspiring to imagine us out there, in space, unbounded and reaching out to regions so unknown. We are truly small – but that doesn’t feel at all bad when I think about the vastness and greatness of the universe. Even “unknowing” can feel safe when I accept all that is out there.

      Yes, awe inspiring indeed; and yet so delightfully safe and cozy when we think of our home and Mother Earth’s arms . I like that sense of adventure and safety that your words bring out, Judy.

    Yes it is! What a wonderful and uplifting post. Life is indeed such a gift, and every time we remind ourselves that our true essence is divine love we are closer to fully embodying its grace. Thank you so much for writing this so beautifully!
