miracles are possible
“Once all struggle is grasped,
miracles are possible.” — Mao Tse-Tung
(w/out the tunnel, the light would have
no meaning & never be reached)
“Out of difficulties grow miracles.” — Jean de La Bruyère
“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.”
— Aristotle Onassis —
Now we all know Aristotle was a very smart and defining character in the world’s history and, with this quote, we can definitely see how true a point he makes.
Many people may look at how dark everything is around them, but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, always that silver lining to life, to the situation they’re in. Nothing stays bad forever. For instance, the depth of our situation, how much suffering we do, how much crap we go through, is a refining process for us all, it makes us stronger people so, when the sun parts the dark clouds of life, we rise to the top and shine like the sun itself.
~Jennifer Scott, “The light through the darkness”
[One] type of miracle is the life-changing, transformational miracles that have lead you to completely change your focus and life direction. Accidents, illnesses, divorce, job losses force you to reconsider your options. This transformational miracle is an unwelcome friend pushing you along to discover your true life’s purpose.
This miracle, born from crisis, is a potent force for change. My commitment to transform my life obsessed me. I learned that harnessing my life’s purpose would activate my miracles and create the life I dreamed about. This was easier said than done. I had allowed myself to fall into disarray. I lived in fear 24 hours a day. Since I was desperate and knew there had to be a better way, I committed myself to making necessary changes. There was no choice. Hard work was required. It was not enough to intellectually know what needed to be done. I had to change myself. Other people have had similar miracles. Like Mike McGauley who lost the use of both his legs when his car was struck by a drunk driver. His doctors insisted on amputating his legs, but he refused. He was determined to walk. Mike now claims that “the accident that almost killed me turned out to save my life.” Twelve years later he ran his first triathlon and has gone on to become a professional speaker, coach, and founder of the Dream Builders. …
[Y]our obstacles and challenges can become the fuel for your life-transformational miracles. Step away from your problems, and reconsider them from the higher perspective. What life lessons are you learning from this? What do your challenges represent? What is the message in this challenge for you to overcome? This becomes the fertilizer to grow your miracle. Grab hold of the opportunity to make change before life forces it on you.
~Joan Hangarter, D.C., M.S. in “Miracles Made Easy”
DARKENING OF THE LIGHT. In adversity
It furthers one to be persevering.
One must not unresistingly let himself be swept along by unfavorable circumstances, nor permit his steadfastness to be shaken. He can avoid this by maintaining his inner light, while remaining outwardly yielding and tractable. With this attitude he can overcome even the greatest adversities.
In some situations indeed a man must hide his light, in order to make his will prevail in spite of difficulties in his immediate environment. Perseverance must dwell in inmost consciousness and should not be discernible from without. Only thus is a man able to maintain his will in the face of difficulties.
~The I Ching or Book of Changes, 36. Ming I
