But even then, unless you are awake and aware, you won't witness the small miracle... And you know, anything that is not witnessed: it is like it never happened. You don't learn from it, you don't grow from it, you don't actually change from it. It is like a flash in the pan... a storm blown over... like so what... Which means: you wasted your money, and you are actually wasting your life.
I am definitely conscious of the small miracles I create, the small miracles of my own doing. I don't worry or even count good things happening to me, or even bad things happening to me. Unless I caused it... it won't even show up on my radar.
I know most of you have been trained to be victims of good things... but victims nevertheless. Unless you start to pay attention to things you cause, you are going to remain a victim.
This time I pay attention to the small miracles my pulling my therefore... I am tired and that means I should take a nap. Or I am right, and therefore I should explain it to people how they are wrong.
The small miracle is when I see what I normally do, coming from meaning, or therefore, but this time I don't do it. I have a choice and I do something else.
I also stop to consider the small miracle, and if I have time, I write it down as a story, a share, if I don't, I just talk to myself, so it is clear that I was both the cause of it and the witness of it.
This what happened today: I had a haircut appointment, but the shop called that my hair dresser called in an emergency.
Now, normally I'd get angry. Maybe even rumble a bit. This time I saw that I had a choice. I could go to a different hair dresser, try out someone new.
I have been looking at a barber shop, that I had never had the courage to enter. Five barbers, five customers, all men... eeeeee!
But today I walked in, sat down, and faced all 10 men. The shop went hush... all men, all 10 of them, suddenly self-conscious, lol. I was sitting there, drinking my tea to hide that I was chuckling.
I haven't had this effect on men in many years! And I saw something I haven't considered: when you are focused on your own fear, you forget that everyone is afraid, and people are afraid of YOU.... lol
Anyway, it was the best experience I have had in a long time.
Did you know that in barber shops the chairs are turned away from the mirror? Maybe that's why it take less time to finish a "head">
You also face the big screen TV... and for the first time in years, I saw again a local car dealer, who got noticeably older, and Serena Williams, who got noticeably fatter and bulkier... I remember when she started she had thin arms with some definition. We all wanted to be like her.
So I asked the barber who was working on my hair: when you got married, did you think that your wife was going to get older? And he honestly said: No, I thought she was always going to look like that.
Yeah, me too... lol.
Anyway, I just want you to see how, in my own life, pulling the therefore of the dominant belief has created a fun opening that I really enjoyed.
Small miracles to be celebrated. Yaaaay.
