Life Bursts With Miracles

Around us, life bursts with miracles—a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles. Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms; ears that hear a bee flying or a thunderclap; a brain that ponders a speck of dust as easily as the entire cosmos; a heart that beats in rhythm with the heartbeat of all beings. When we are tired and feel discouraged by life’s daily struggles, we may not notice these miracles, but they are always there.

—Thank you, Thich Nhat Hanh. I need to be  reminded these days.

    Observing the world with compassion, I’d say the greatest miracle is that we are still here.

    Pridejo dnevi, ko se vsi ti čudeži v nas manifestirajo. Žarijo. In mi z njimi. In so dnevi, ko se moramo po njih ozirati, pa čeprav so vedno. Tukaj. Za nas vse. Tudi moj teden je minil v iskanju… In sva danes s hčerko, namesto namesto sejma, použivili dozo čudežev. Verjamem, da tudi ti. Nadvse prijeten teden ti želim! Pomežikec

    Citat, ki se ga je treba zapomniti in spomniti ko žalost napolni naše srce in dušo. S temi mislimi tudi skozi najbolj goste oblake posijejo žarki sonca.
