You are a human being, right? You also believe you are
either male or female, right? You also have other roles you
play in your life, like mother, father, brother, sister,
employee, employer, boss, manager, in-law — and the list,
I’m sure, goes on. But have you ever thought of yourself as
A Course In Miracles. Not in the sense of your birth. Of course, that
is a miracle. In the sense of your every day life. Do you
walk around all day long and see yourself as a miracle
If you did, just imagine how much taller you would stand,
less rushed you would be, and how much fear you would live
without. Well, sit straighter right now. Because you are.
You are a miracle. You are a miracle worker, if you choose
to be. You have been given that choice too.
Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of riding in the limo
with Deepak Chopra, on his way to speak at the IONS
conference in Crystal City, Arlington, Virginia. And this
was one of the topics that morning with everyone in the car.
We tossed back and forth the characteristics of a miracle
and all the other angles. Although it was just one of many
interesting conversations I enjoyed that week, this one
instantly changed my life.
When we got closer to the hotel, the car grew quiet except
for the purring of the engine. Deepak was meditating, and I
joyously recorded the wisdom of our conversation and all
that was churning inside of me.
In big bold letters, “If I want to have a miracle, be that
miracle,” flowed from my pen. I stopped, stunned. I
couldn’t continue writing nor look up. Tears quietly rolled
down my cheek. The message was so powerful it turned into a
muffled sob. My skin tingled and my cheeks flushed with
embarrassment even though I wasn’t sure who, if anyone, was
A hand touched my shoulder. Our eyes met. The corners of
Deepak’s eyes were watery too. I knew in that instant he
received the same message. No words were exchanged just a
nod from him. Later that day, in his stage presentation, he
discussed this event incognito.
