Miracles are not in contradiction to nature. They are only in contradiction with what we know of nature.

Life’s beauty

Life is beautiful. In every moment there is something beautiful to be found. The beauty differs from one day to the next. Sometimes it is overpowering, and other times it is subtle and delicate. Yet always, everywhere, life’s precious and irrepressible beauty is there. Whatever else this moment may hold, it also holds its own unique beauty.

Find a little bit of beauty, and you open yourself to finding more. See that even from the troubles and disappointments, beauty will emerge. Celebrate the beauty, just because it is. Remember, again and again, through all the ups and downs, how very good it is to experience the beauty that is born in every moment. Celebrate the beauty, just because you can. For you are the miracle that can know the beautiful miracle of all that is.
