A Miracle isn’t winning a new Cadillac in a raffle. Miracles happen more often and the effects are longer lasting. Miracles are profound experiences of God and they happen so often that they sometimes go by unnoticed. The ego is looking for big, flashy, physical miracles, but the Course is talking about the Holy Miracle, the shift in perspective when a revelation becomes so clear it can change our life. For example, look how profoundly our parents and our childhood affect our present day lives. So many of us see our family as dysfunctional, expecting that it should be something else. But how can anything egoically-based be anything but dysfunctional? The Miracle is that we see the love beyond the dysfunction. When you positively change perceptions of your family, the transformation you undergo is far more miraculous and lasting than the aging Cadillac in your driveway.
It is not necessary to have or read the Course textbook to participate, but for those who do want to study this in the book, please see Chapter 1, THE MEANING OF MIRACLES, from Number I, Principles of Miracles, through Number IV, which in my edition is from pages 3 through 12.
