The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles

“Around us, life bursts forth 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.”

~Thich Nhat Hanh

    I like this so much! When I am feeling discouraged I remember to seek out flowers, trees, water…any lovely little miracle to bring me back to present.

        Thank you. I’m not sure how to add a subscribe link to my page, but I think you can just click the “+follow” next to my name in the notifications area and my posts will show up in your reader view feed. That’s what I’ve been doing to follow others. I checked my settings and they are marked public…I hope the little icon is there.
