“Miracles are not contrary to nature, but only contrary to what we know about nature.” ___ Saint Augustine
There are so many things we don’t understand.
Yet, sometimes we know without knowing.
How does a caterpillar know
It’s time to emerge
as a butterfly?
How do we know
When it’s time to make
The leap of faith that will change
a lifetime of fear, drama, and confusion,
To take a new path with courage, integrity and wisdom?
We once believed the earth was flat
and that we’d fall off
if we went too far.
And the sun
around the earth,
Because man was the center,
And everything was here for our pleasure.
Now, the earth grows tired of our deadly grandiosity,
It’s time for the wisdom of humility
To protect the gifts
There is more to life
Than politics and faster gadgets,
What if we are meant to discover real miracles,
That heal the sick with thoughts of love
And lead a world of turmoil
