“Miracles are unexpected joys, surprising coincidences, unexplainable experiences, astonishing beauties…absolutely anything that happens in the course of my day, except that at this moment I’m able to recognize its special value.”
–Judith M. Knowlton in Meditations for Women Who Do too Much
Last week, I wrote of flowers. I described the pumpkin blossom outside my tiny temple and how I drew the Pentacle from Womanrunes. Thinking of this Rune of Protection, I reflected that sometimes protecting our own energetic boundaries, actually means dropping to our knees by a flower. This week, a fresh new pumpkin blossom appeared and I went to admire it even though I didn’t really “have time” to be sitting with flowers. I drew my card and…you guessed it! The Pentacle again!
In the same book above, author Anne Schaef reflects:
“Miracles are constantly occurring around us. Serendipities abound in daily life.
The issue is not that these miracles are absent. The issue is that often we are absent. We are standing on a hill of diamonds, and we are looking for the gold mine beyond the next ridge.
As we reclaim ourselves, we being to notice the extraordinaries of the ordinary. We quit thinking about being present and start doing it.”
