"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." Albert Einstein
The above quote was included in my book, Closer Than We Imagine. Although with my miniscule amount of gray matter compared to Einstein, I couldn't have posed so a deep question so eloquently and simply.
I believe we arrive with the knowldege that everything in life and life itself is a miracle. As we grow older, daily miracles are taken for granted. Local and national news daily bombard us with reports of constant violence and heartbreaking inequities across the planet. It is so easy to become cynical.
In Closer Than We Imagine I shared why I believe that each one of us is here for a reason, that we have purpose and work to do on this spiritual journey. We are here to make a positive difference with merely a smile, a kind word or deed or an act of compassion - to change the lives in small ways of those we meet, know and love and not feel guitly or depressed that we can not change everyone's life on the planet.
Have a wonderful week - smile, laugh and enjoy the journey as best you can.
Peace and blessings,
