Albert Einstein said; 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.
I remember when I read those words the first time a few years ago. Those words sank deep into my soul and I understood how I had always felt a deep yearning inside of me to truly live through the miracle.
What those words mean is that you can live like life is nothing special… just an ordinary days after another, feeling a lack in some way all the time, let your dreams slip away, spend your time watching tv and gossip with your friends about what bad has again happened.
…or you can live through appreciation, choosing to believe that life is a miracle.
If you choose miracle you understand that even though you don`t know what everything is for and why life is full of pain and full of love … you still choose every day to go beyond your mind and see how beautiful this planet is, how miraculous all this is, how varied and unique humans really are , how precious the moments with your loved ones are and how amazing it is to be alive and be able to experience this all. You understand that you need to choose the miracle and work every day to find that light inside of you.
You choose not to complain about the little things or judge other people even when your brain sees a hundred reasons to do so ( and it will) because you know how insignificant all that ultimately is.
Grateful people will experience a happier life, even if they have more difficulties. It is an attitude that respects life and the miracle of the whole universe. It is an inner choice.
I want to share with you today a meditation that will help you to connect with living through a miracle.
A Thankfulness Meditation.
Find a place and moment to yourself where you can stay for a moment without interruption. Sit with your back straight and close your eyes. If it feels natural to you, place your palms together at your heart. Become aware of your breath. Take a few deep breaths through the nose and breathe out through your mouth and relax more and more in every breath.
Then, let your breath return to normal and start repeating the words “thank you” in every in and out -breath. Repeat this mantra about 5-10 minutes, or how it feels good for you. This is a perfect meditation to do in the morning! It will help you connect the now and feel the appreciation of a new day and your life in general. If you feel like, you can add a little more in this meditation and list things in your mind what you feel grateful for. Try this meditation a 7 days in a row and let me know how it felt for you.
