How much do our thoughts contribute to the world around us? Some Quantum Physicists believe that as we think so we manifest. Would that mean as a whole we are responsible for the tsunamis and the hurricanes, the earthquakes and the tornadoes along with the crime rates and general mayhem of the planet? Is science able to draw parallels between the healing of our bodies and the healing of conflicts between nations? A little far fetched for most of us to wrap our minds around, but more evidence is pointing at exactly that.
Modern physicists are looking at the collective human consciousness in a way that compares it with computer science. They are studying what we put into the field and how it comes back to us? You can’t pull up Firefox and get Chrome. Quantum physicists contend that you can’t order a limousine and get a skateboard. You – we, get in return what we project on a conscious, and way too often, unconscious scale. The question is how influential is one over the many?
Some exciting stirrings going on at the Vatican as I write this. Mother Teresa is on the threshold of being recognized officially by the Church of Rome as a Saint. Next September, near or on the date of her death, an official canonization will be held. For you non-Catholics, the honor is bestowed on a person after three miracles “by their hand” have been performed posthumously.
The miracles have to qualify as the real deal. The events must pass under the eyes of cynical Cardinals and their interpretations of the guidelines. The miracles cannot be a magic trick performed by an illusionist fan. Duplicating an apple in a 3D printer won’t do it – but duplicating a pony, might. Nonetheless, Mother Teresa has nothing to prove in the Holier Grail’s book, and I would say the Blessed Teresa was already a Saint long before the Church will says so. Already revered as a modern-day saint her followers visit her tomb with prayer and receive strength and grace.
At The Holier Grail, it’s always a joy to hear of the miraculous. The thrill never diminishes. When a story comes through that is otherwise unexplainable, I don’t spend a good deal of time trying to prove or disprove what I hear. I’m a bit cynical and moderately discerning as to the validity of an event, but I also have an innate sense of these things. It’s one of the reasons I love to write this blog. If I’m privileged to hear about a circumstance that brought joy and faith to someone’s life, I don’t take it through the acid test that the Church of Rome does, I simply, and delightfully chalk it up to a miracle, and choose to leave it at that.
Whatever your mindset, here at The Holier Grail I love to cater to the idea that we are surrounded by miracles everyday. To those who love to hear stories about extraordinary events, allow me to share with you the miracle of a father and son who were caught in an unexpected snow storm in the Fall of 2005.
Who doesn’t love a good miracle? What I’ve begun to discover is they happen more often than we realize. Statistically – and yes, there are statistics on miracles, we all experience a miracle about once a month. Little things that can happen to us every day can be viewed as miracles if we choose to. For example, last month when rushing to an appointment, I unknowingly parked in a tow away zone.
The miracle . . . After being gone for a little over an hour, my car was still there when I got back. I looked around for the tow truck that I could feel lurking close by, jumped in my car and got the heck out of there. Driving away, I was saying prayers of gratitude and relief since I knew it was a miracle that I didn’t get towed.
