Sunday Morning: All is a miracle…

curious eyes of a child

People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.

~Thich Nhat Hanh

  1. The quote is beautiful, but it pales next to the picture of this amazingly beautiful baby…I couldn’t stop staring at the photo – trying to see what those eyes were reflecting, the perfection of that wistful little face. I was a little hypnotized.

  10. David,

    I have been away for a while- obligations from my other life, traveling, speeches. Now I’m home, doing what I love. Reading and writing. Coming here is so good. A source of energy and inspiration.

    We often wonder what good comes of our work. You should not wonder. Your messages are a gift that goes out into the world creating ripples of energy and mindfulness that collide with other ripples and remake the world.

    Thank you.

    Tom
