Life is so fleeting that we can not allow ourselves to just sit unconsciously and not celebrate the pure miraculous essence of it. The miraculous is all around us. It is time to open our spiritual eyes to savor and celebrate every precious moment of the miraculous as it assuredly unfolds in our lives.
It is common for us to sit in dullness and mediocrity when the world needs everyone of its inhabitants to enter the realm of existence where miracles not only live but brilliantly explode at an endearing and phenomenal rate. It is time for us to take notice, experience and celebrate the many miracles taking place in our personal daily lives.

1. Behold the miracles in nature.Go outside at night. Look up at the skies. Witness the brilliance of the stars. Can you count them? This in itself is a miracle. Take a walk in the daytime. Look at the flowers, or snow or whatever is occurring during the particular season. Celebrate the myriad colors of the flowers, the intense whiteness of the snow, the undeniable colors in the rainbow after the rain. Notice the smells: the fragrance of rain; the scent of flowers.
2. Listen to beautiful music knowing that someone had the inspiration to create it. Creativity is a gift to be celebrated for it miraculously sparks and begets even more creativity in a never ending cycle that spreads goodness and joy upon the world.

3. Be sensitive to acts of kindness that you witness in your daily journey. Acts of kindness don't just benefit the recipients, but they also bless and heal the witnesses or onlookers. Celebrate the many acts of kindness that you see daily: a smile from family, friends and even strangers; a hug from loved ones, a friendly "hello" from a neighbor, or a "passerby".
If you notice, the miraculous doesn't cost any money. It only requires one to be alert, aware and ready to experience it.
