We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery. ~ H.G. Wells, British writer
A couple weekends ago, I was pondering what to get for my Sunday dinner. Growing up in a large Italian family, Sunday dinners were special occasions. They were a day for being together to celebrate the day and each other.
My mother used to make a special eggplant stew which I loved. Called “ciambotta” in Italian, I decided to have that for Sunday dinner.
Around here, especially at this time of year, eggplant (“aubergine” in British English) can be hard to find. But being the eternal optimist, I went over to our local market on 17th Street.
I was disappointed as I approached the produce area. Nary an eggplant was in sight.
So I asked one of the staff if they had any eggplant they hadn’t put on display yet. He said they were sold out, and would not be getting any more till the following week.
I wandered around the store looking for some substitute for the eggplant. No luck.
On my way out, I walked by the produce area again. I couldn’t believe my eyes—there were about a dozen big, beautiful eggplant sitting there! Five minutes earlier, there were none.
One of my favorite spiritual teachers is Joel Goldsmith. Joel used to say God is the substance of all form. What does that mean?
The problem people have with miracles is not their rarity. The problem is they happen every day of your physical lives.
But you fail to see them. Your ego gets in the way. However, if you see through the eyes of your soul—well, everything changes.
Let’s say you come down with a bad headache one day.
You go to bed that night with a strong desire to rid yourself of the pain. You wake up in the morning, and it’s gone. You probably would not consider that a miracle.
Johnny had a strong desire to find an eggplant that Sunday a few weeks ago. Was that a miracle?
What if your doctor said you had terminal cancer, totally incurable?
You most likely would have a strong desire to be rid of it. So you go to bed one night, and awaken in the next morning to a cancer-free body.
You’d likely consider that a miracle.
Do you see where we’re going with all this?
The processes we’re describing here—whether they’re eggplants appearing, a cured headache, or a cured cancer—are exactly the same. There is no difference in difficulty or degree.
You create miracles all the time. You’re just not aware of them.
Most of you have had so-called “terminal” illnesses without being consciously aware of it. And then, without being consciously aware of it, you’re healed.
These events happen so often in all your lives, the details would probably shock you.
But if you are consciously aware of who you really are, you will see all miracles, not just the “big” ones, for what they are. And what are they? They are the most ordinary and frequent events in your physical lives.
Who are you? You are an extension of God—Goddess—divinity (insert whatever word you want to use) in physical form.
If, as Joel Goldsmith says, God is the substance of all form, then you are also. You are the substance of all form.
You have everything you desire and need within you. This means everything—healing, abundance, peace, joy, etc. are within you.
You do not have to beg for them. You do not have to work hard for them.
All you “have” to do is become aware you have everything within you. You are God or Goddess. You are powerful beyond your wildest dreams. You can create miracles.
In fact, you are the miracle.

Dear brother John, Your eggplant story reminds me of a plan I had some years ago to buy a great sugar bowl from which to sweeten my tea. I went to the big department store downtown. I went to their pottery department and was told that all their sugar bowls are part of a complete set. I asked if they might have any odd sugar bowls in their back room. They brought out a pretty sugar bowl that was and is exactly what I wanted. Love, hugs, and sugar, George
Thanks very much, my dear brother! I love your sugar bowl story. Someone is always watching over us. 🙂
Love & hugs,
The older I become, the more I look back and see the amazing miracles that I just took for granted, or that I didn’t notice in almost every day of my life. There have been many that saved my life, some that were obvious that angels and guardians were traveling with me because I couldn’t “do it myself”. Some were answers to prayers, some were given to eliminate fear, and some were like John’s eggplant. Eventually, I understood that every NOW MOMENT is a miracle. Our lives are a miracle. Our Creator is with us at every moment and will always be. That’s about the best miracle I can imagine.
Love to all, and thank you for this one, John.
Thank you very much, Mikala.
I had exactly those thoughts as we were writing this post. I love what you say about every NOW MOMENT being a miracle, life being a miracle — and most of all, the Creator being with us at every moment. We have nothing to fear. We are eternally safe and loved. All is well.
