In ancient times miracles were considered a normal occurrence. Today, we do not often hear of miracles occurring. The incidents I hear about, which are classified as miracles, mostly a course in miracles deal with images. One person supposedly found the image of Jesus in a piece of toast. There was the image of Mary found on the face of a tree, and many others similar incidences. Of course, we sometime hear about man-made objects (such as statues) that either cry or bleed and are considered miracles.
It is ironic that today’s miracles mainly deal with objects, where as miracles in the pass dealt with people. Such things as the death suddenly hearing, or the blind suddenly seeing. Such miracles do not seem to happen anymore, and we have seemingly stopped looking for such incidents to happen. People did not simply stop looking for miracles, instead, I believe that modern day society has psychologically trained us to no longer expect divine intervention in our affairs as it is said to have happened during Biblical times.
Although we no longer expect miracles to happen, our desire for them to occur is as strong as it has ever been. Proof of this is demonstrated by the large crowds that gather anytime it is announced that a miracle has occurred. There are several locations around the world, which have been credited with the occurrence of a miracle, that get thousands of visitors on a daily and/or annual basis. So, it is probably not accurate to say that modern society’s inhabitants have lost its desire for miracles to occur in their lives.
People today have a better understanding of the connection between the mind and the spirit. They are learning to better control the power of the unconscious mind, and have began to use it as a tool in personal self development. Although it is believed that people still only use 10% of their brains, every day we get a greater understanding of powers of the human mind. Granted, the abilities and strength of the human mind (especially the subconscious) are still hidden to an extent, but we are learning to develop and use that aspect of the mind that can only be classified as divine mind power.
Modern society has experienced a large expansion in spiritual understanding. Rather than waiting on divine intervention, we now understand that that we are co-creators with the divine. We better understand that the divine’s omnipresence means that the divine is within each of us, which also means that the miracles are also within each of us.
Consequently, we can manifest our own miracles. Using the laws of attraction along with the art of goal setting, we can see the magic of miracles manifest into our daily lives.
