Day 28 Saturday Miracles

(Note from Rev. Toni:   Remember that Charles Fillmore was writing this in the early 1900’s;  take a deep breath as you read this entry.  Open up to the metaphysical meaning of these ideas.  Also note that the 2017 edition uses the same concept.)

Miracles

From Keep A True Lent by Charles Fillmore

Read Matthew 14:15-36.  The first miracle in our consciousness is the transforming of the water of thought into the wine of thought, through introducing into the consciousness some of the “angels of God,” or true ideas.  In reality miracles are events that take place as a result of the application of a higher law to certain conditions.  God never performs miracles, if by miracle is meant a departure from universal law. Whatever the prophets did was done by the operation of laws inherent in Being and open to the discovery of every man.  By the power of his thought Elijah penetrated the atoms and precipitated an abundance of rain. Jesus used the same dynamic power of thought to break the bonds of the atoms composing the few loaves and fishes of a little lad’s lunch–and five thousand persons were fed.  Science is discovering the miracle-working dynamics of religion, but science has not yet comprehended the dynamic directive power of man’s thought. All socalled miracle workers claim that they do not of themselves produce the marvelous results; that they are only the instruments of a superior entity.  Jesus said, “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also.” As I go on in the exercise of spiritual faculties I shall strengthen them and understand them better and I shall cease to talk about anything as miraculous.  I affirm: “The clear unclouded mind of Jesus Christ dominates all my thinking, and I discern the omnipresent laws of Spirit.”

 

From Be Ye Transformed    Lent 2017

By Rev. Claudell County

By operation of a higher law, I am a miracle of radiant love and light. With eyes to see and ears to hear, I attune to the ceaseless miracles around and within me.

We are miracles of radiant love. Miracles are happening in our midst at all times. We do not need saints or supernatural beings in order to acknowledge miracles. Scientists admit that the physical universe operates by more than the Newtonian laws of physics.  Quantum physics describe events that operate under other laws.  Between a cause and an effect are other potential mitigating modifiers and factors of which we have no knowledge. This is where the miracles lie—and there is a miracle in everything.  We are filled with miracles. Jesus alluded to the mystery of unknown laws when he said, “Ye who have ears to hear and eyes to see …”  To be attuned to miracles, we must change our perception. To experience a healing miracle, we attune to the perception of wholeness already present. A miraculous peaceful world awaits our willingness to see and hear beyond the news reports to the unfolding mystery of possibilities.
