Be determined to make a difference to your lives.
I want to have my headache go away every time I have one. I want to be successful even when I have no goals. I want everyone to behave pleasingly to me even though I have no idea of how to be pleasing to them. This miracle mania is all around us. For some people, it is even the condition to meditate or pray. Expecting a miracle in itself is not the problem, but not being sincere about the miracle you seek is.
More than a problem, it is injustice meted out to yourself by you.
Events in the form of diseases, stagnant careers, interpersonal troubles, etc appear in everybody’s life. It is important to reflect upon why such events occur. They are natural events on one plane. On the other plane, they are the effects of several ongoing events. Any event, discussed here, arise on the psychological dimension, after which they take a physical dimension. Unfortunately most people do not even acknowledge the existence of this psychological dimension except for using words like stress, anxiety, etc which are mostly related to the physical effects.
When you are sick, ask yourself, “Why am I sick?” When you ask yourself sincerely, answers will appear. The real challenge is whether you will be ready to make the necessary changes to your life or not. Similar understanding lies at the basis of success, happy relationships, etc. Wishing for magic in your life is foolishness. Magical wishes alone will never allow you to reach your full potential. Reaching your full potential involves dedication, determination and course correction.
Miracles do exist, but they should not be your opium. Instead they should be your inspiration to give back kindness and understanding, both spiritual and material, to your family, to your society, to your nation and to your world. How will you give others if you do not give yourself the right things. The problems you face are fixable, but only if you put your mind and heart into it.
Otherwise you will remain a zombie in magic mania.
