In my home we have a huge pink and red duct taped heart on a door with the word Emunah (Faith) written below it in Hebrew letters, also in duct tape – green and purple.
Earlier this week, when I felt as if I’d welcomed in a miracle, I decided to write it down on a small mini hot pink post-it note with the date on top.
I was then led to turn around and place that miracle note on the door, inside the big pink heart. I immediately fell in love with the idea – of recognizing miracles in real time and recording them, and pasting them on your walls like the finest Divine art.
I also liked the idea of giving yourself permission on the spot to classify something as a miracle. And since this was just the first one on the door, I socialized the idea with my wife and children. They all seemed to like it – and since then my wife has placed at least one of her own miracle notes in the big pink heart on the door.
The next day, something that struck me deeply – that otherwise, I might have just let the feelings of chills and raised hair on my arms come and go – came across to me through an electronic communication.
It’s kinda hard to explain. I saw a positive attribute shine in another person’s communication – and I felt a signal that I was blessed to be a channel of some of the light that provided illumination to them. I chose that one as a miracle too, although I had some hesitation – unlike the total clarity of the first one – but I went with it, and put it up there – reinforced and all.
The truth is, everything is a miracle. Recognizing and acknowledging the miracles in life is our opportunity and sacred obligation. When you feel that miracles are being sent, it really boosts the relationship with the Source – because you are in more and more and more gratitude. You’re letting more things that otherwise can seem to just come and go become priceless art – miracles.
When the moments come up and we feel the sensation within of the Source winking at us through nature – honor that and elevate its significance. This concept is drawn from the Kaballah – the system of making the room for miracles to come. It’s the message of not missing the boat that you’re praying for – it’s the message of not taking anything for granted – reaching a place of feeling as though every detail is a gift and blessing.
As we literally launch into Purim. Let’s really take in what the Zohar teaches us. The festive Purim meal tomorrow has a special significance – for it elevates our soul as well as provides pleasure for our body. May each of your families see only miracles and use this time wisely to stock up on the bright light to share with the future.
Ah frielichen Purim! (I wish you a joyful Purim)
