‘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 think miracles are nothing but magical nonsense. For this reason, I ignored the spiritual teachings that encourage us to believe in miracles. I thought these teachings 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. 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 a miracle. We don’t know how they think, what they think, and how most of them communicate. We don’t know how they came into existence, the force behind their evolution, and what drives them to mate. Moreover, just like us, they experience the miracles of digestion and respiration.
Plants are also a miracle. They make food, breathe, reproduce, grow, and die, but they don’t think. Some of them attract and kill insects, some grow in water, others are climbers, and some can detect human emotions.
Other than living organisms, non-living things are also a miracle. Water, air, minerals, and the force holding the Earth in orbit around the Sun are miracles. We don’t know when these things were created, how they came into existence, and from what they were created. All scientific theories about the origin of air, water, minerals and the force that prevents the Earth from falling into the Sun, are inaccurate because they are based on assumptions.
Thinking about these things enlightened me that I live in a miraculous world. I thus questioned the scientific way of thinking – that makes us look upon the idea of miracles as religious delusions – as I realized that it’s out of tune with our miraculous planet Earth.
I then noticed that most people who don’t believe in miracles are pessimistic, more vulnerable to stress, and they fear uncertainty because their belief is out of tune with our miraculous planet Earth. I also noticed that people who believe in miracles experience them regularly, and are more optimistic.
For these reasons, I now believe in miracles, and I am certain that my belief is not delusional because I know that I am a miracle existing in a miraculous world.
