The Miracle Position

1 Feb

miracles

Miracles do happen. They happen everyday. We live in a world of miracles: planes, spaceships, televisions, cell phones, electricity. All these things at some point were beyond belief. Now they are a part of our daily reality. That’s how miracles work. When a miracle happens it is so thoroughly consuming that it changes a world, indefinitely.

We live in a society that is about as pleasant as a jaded lover. Somewhere along the line we fell out of love with the world. We decided that it just didn’t live up to our expectations and that was its fault and not ours. So, now, we are skeptical. We are bitter. We are faithless. And miracles are made of faith.

It is surprising how many people would say that they do not believe in miracles when all they would need to do is look at the world around them and see it for what it is: a miracle. As people, we are some of the most ungrateful and irreverent creatures on the planet. And what’s worse is we have the audacity to be sarcastic and cynical. We are so out of touch with the truth that we cannot understand and see that there are, at least, as many possibilities in the world as there are limitations.
All it takes is an open face (I have issues with open minds lol). All we have to do is be willing to see and focus on that which is positive and hopeful, despite the opposition.

When we get in the miracle position we begin to see the world from an angle that makes anything possible. The glass becomes half full instead of half empty, love seems possible, hope abounds, and faith endures. What does it cost one to believe? he risk of disappointment? Well that, too, would be a matter of perspective. But we’ve been disappointed before and somehow survived. So why not take the chance? There’s infinitely more to be gained than there is to lose.

Violet Ambitions are everyday miracles.

“Face to Face” by Kimia Rahgozar

As we stand face to face with someone or something, we begin to see the truth in it. The flaws, the hidden details, and then nuances. We begin to learn it in a way that’s not possible from a distance. In that knowledge we also learn something about ourselves.

We have so much more potential than what we actualize. And because we do not make the time to utilize all that we are capable of, we begin to accept mediocrity as the norm and anything beyond that as miraculous.

It’s not a miracle that we made this far on the exodus away from reality to the place of dreams; it’s a testament to our faith in ourselves and our courage to believe and see the world not as it is but as it could be.

It’s what we were meant to do. As dreamers in pursuit of our dreams we are becoming. We are becoming exactly what we could be, exactly what we should be. We are not meant to be helpless pawns in the game of life. We are meant to be designers of the game.

We have always had this strength, this power, this ability to reshape the world to our will. Hold fast to that conviction. We are slowly beginning to know and be known.

Violet Ambitions will bring us face to face.
