‘We live on a blue planet that circles around a ball of fire next to a moon that moves the sea…and you don’t believe in miracles?’ – Anonymous
I used to believe miracles are a form of wishful thinking, and I never believed the spiritual teachers that encourage us to believe in miracles. I thought these teachers encourage us to believe in miracles just to make us hopeful. However, after meditating on the world for a while, it dawned on me that I must believe in miracles because everything in the world is a miracle.
For instance, human beings are a miracle. We don’t know where we came from, how we were made, and why we came into existence. As well, we are the only creatures that can talk and invent things such as planes and computers, and we can take care of other animals and ensure balance in the ecosystem.
Besides humans, animals are also a miracle. We don’t know how they think, what they think, and how most of them communicate. In addition, we don’t know how they came into existence, the force behind their evolution, what drives them to mate, and so on. Moreover, just like us, some of them experience the miracle of digestion, which turns food into bodies.
Furthermore, plants are also a miracle. They make food, breathe, reproduce, grow, die, but they don’t think. Some of them attract and kill insects, some live in water, others are climbers, and some can detect human emotions.
Other than the living aspects of life, the non-living aspects are also a miracle. For instance, water, air, minerals, and the forces that hold the stars, moon, and earth on nothingness are a miracle. We don’t how these things were created, how they came into existence, and from what they were created.
Thinking about these things enlightened me that I live in a miraculous world. I thus abandoned the scientific way of thinking – that makes us perceive miracles as wishful thinking – as I realized that it’s out of tune with this miraculous world. I noticed that miracles are part of life, and therefore, it makes sense to believe in miracles.
Moreover, I realized that most individuals who don’t believe in miracles are pessimistic, more vulnerable to stress, and they fear uncertainty because their belief is out of tune with the miraculous world we live in. At the same time, I noticed that people who believe in miracles experience them regularly, and are more optimistic because the belief results in them being in tune with life.
For these reasons, I now believe in miracles, and I don’t think my belief is illogical or delusional because I understand that I am a miracle living in a miraculous world, and so it makes sense to believe in miracles.
