The Miracle

I vow to transcend fear and awaken to my true nature.

I vow to open to beauty of  the present moment.

I vow to feel compassion for the suffering of others.

I vow to reach out to those around me and not to isolate.

I vow to help others achieve balance and happiness.

I vow to experience the miracle of being truly alive.

  1. "There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
    Albert Einstein

    Having tried the former, I'd definitely recommend the latter. ;-)

  2. I was going to offer that Einstein quote, too, but Bethany beat me to it! Wonderful post to keep us aware of all the miracles at our fingertips every moment.
