The miracle is not to fly in the air, or to walk on the water,
but to walk on the earth.
What wisdom I believe this proverb is trying to impart is one of happiness and acceptance of reality (much like my post about the ocean and Natures Lessons). We so often wish to be something more than we are. The miracle is that we are alive and here to experience all of Life’s miracles. Out of the thousands of ways that we could lose our lives, and the perils we face on a regular basis, it is a miracle that we are still here!
We have unrealistic views of what miracles are these days, and should try to appreciate the small miracles as much as the large ones! A miracle is what we make of our lives, and what we choose to do with the wonderful gifts god has given us.
