Constant, which cannot change. These are the innate qualities of who we are, such as happiness, love, and peace.
Here are my August Miracles:
1-More flexible than I thought I would be.
2-Remained calm during an emotional time. I reacted once I had all the information rather than assuming the worst.
3-Inner and outer strength led the way making it easier to ignore the nay-sayers.
4-Enjoyed a relaxing unplanned birthday with people who love me for me. (Happy birthday to all those with August birthdays!)
5-August 31 at BAPS Chicago. I took visitors to see this gorgeous temple and hadn't eaten. So I grabbed my credit card and went to the Cafe to get lunch. I had no idea what to order as it was Indian food, but a kind lady behind me explained it to me. I received my plate and was told it was CASH only. The kind lady paid for my lunch and was happy to see me enjoy the food she recommended.
This was a great big miracle and not because I can not afford to pay for lunch. It was the love this woman had in her heart to share and bring happiness to a stranger. It was her choice to make when the unexpected situation presented itself. Its these small acts of kindness that will never be forgotten.
So remember my dear friends:
1-Change will happen.
a. with the choices you make
b. by being adaptable to that around you
2-Constants cannot change. You are a wonderful person who already has happiness, love, and peace! (Just do 1a and 1b ;)
Understand these 2 things, apply them, and watch miracles happen! Most people forget about 2 and get stuck trying to find a constant they already have. You can see why 1a and 1b may be hard if step 2 isn't understood.
What are your thoughts? Have you experienced miracles? If so, I would love to hear it.
