I. Principles of Miracles, P 19

19 Miracles make minds one in God. They depend on cooperation, because the Sonship is the sum of all that God created. Miracles therefore reflect the laws of eternity, not of time.


Miracles occur on the level of mind, and so are outside time and space and bodies. The miracle brings our awareness back to reality and so through the miracle we remember that we are one in God. A student and I were discussing her work and suddenly I suggested something she might do to bring about a healing. I had no idea I was going to do that or what I was going to say until I said it. The impulse did not come from me but through me.

I had no idea that the suggestion was important or meaningful to the student. I discovered how important and how healing it was later. This is a miracle. It happened on the level of mind and the true gift is the joining at that level my student and I experienced. Neither one of us will ever again be able to think of our minds as separate.

We only seem to be separate and to have separate thoughts, but there is a place where our seemingly separate minds meet and are not separate. It is here that love flows unimpeded one to another. Love takes whatever form is helpful at that moment, and in a way that is recognizable to both.

This kind of thing happens all the time now because I am a more open and willing channel that I used to be. I become willing to be lived and to get my self out of the way. That means I ignore the ego impulse to decide on my own, and make my own plans, and the miracle of love moving through the Mind we are becomes very clear, and my conviction grows. It grows for the one I have joined with as well. It is a very humbling experience.
