The Miracle of Life and The Artistry of the Universe

by Michael Corthell

Today's article is fairly brief. When you get to the end be sure to watch the video presentation, because you will see the miracle I talk about.

'Let there be light, and there was light, love and life.'

When writing about God (the creator/the first cause/the prime mover/the one, the source or The ONE) I often say that God is love or love is the essence of what He is, and that 'love is all there is'. I say this because the true effect and purpose of all creation is love, life, the love for it and just to live it.

The foolish believe in luck. The wise believe in cause and effect.

Many people refer to God as the 'first cause' (and only cause). For every 'cause' there is indeed, not only one effect, but many. What you see and experience all around you—throughout all the Universe are those 'effects'.

For most people are only two ways to live life. Living it as though nothing is a miracle, or living and experiencing everything as a miracle.

The point is that life, in and of itself is the ONE true MIRACLE. You have no need to look further. All miracles, when you really think about them are wrapped up in that one package: Life.

On a personal level, we should remind ourselves every single day that our lives are connected to God, our fellow creatures, and all that there is(Oneness). 

Much of what we are and have achieved is based on the labors of other human beings, alive and dead, and we must do our part in order to give back in the same measure as we have received. This is compensation. This is balance.

Love and life go together. Life was created out of the expression of love—both spiritually and physically and love is the nature of God, the First Cause.

''If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people.'' 
—Thich Nhat Hanh

I am a realist. I expect miracles ALL the time!

When you live your life knowing that everything is a miracle, every moment then becomes something to savor and be in awe of. You are naturally instilled with appreciation and gratitude knowing that you are indeed blessed.

Hidden miracles of the natural world
by Louie Schwartzberg

We live in a world of 'unseen' beauty, so subtle and delicate that it is imperceptible to the human eye. To bring this invisible world to light, filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg bends the boundaries of time and space with high-speed cameras, time lapses and microscopes. He shares highlights from his latest project, a 3D film titled "Mysteries of the Unseen World," which slows down, speeds up, and magnifies the astonishing wonders of nature.

Understanding The Universal Law of Compensation

''The wings of Time are black and white, Pied with morning and with night. Mountain tall and ocean deep Trembling balance duly keep.'' — Ralph Waldo Emerson This stanza from 'Compensation' conveys the idea that time is a blend of contrasting experiences, marked by both light and darkness. The phrase "wings of Time" symbolizes the passage of time, which encompasses both positive (morning) and negative (night) aspects. The mention of "Mountain tall and ocean deep" suggests the vast and varied dimensions of existence. The imagery of "Trembling balance duly keep" underscores the delicate equilibrium that is maintained despite these opposing forces. Overall, the stanza highlights the duality and balance inherent in the passage of time and the world's diverse experiences. _____ ''The Universe always seeks to balance itself, in fact, it demands it.''  — Michael Corthell None of us can avoid the consequen

Manifest wisely, manifest consciously." Michael Corthell Following these three fundamental steps will set you on the path to achieving the life you've always envisioned and accomplishing your desired goals.

How Small Acts of Kindness Change You and the World

A peaceful world really comes down to choice because we all carry with us, as human beings, not just the capacity to be kind, but the choice to be kind. by Michael Corthell ''This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.''  — Dalai Lama Kindness is defined by most folks as a behavior marked by ethical characteristics, a pleasant disposition, and concern for others. It is known as a virtue and recognized as something of high social value in almost all cultures and religions.  What does kindness mean to you? Am I kind enough in this topsy-turvy world? Is it even possible to practice kindness consistently? Everyone has heard the Golden Rule , but not everyone takes it to heart. Kindness often gets overlooked as a sign of weakness, and to an extent, it can be—there is such a thing as being too nice. But a little kindness can still go a
