Here are some of the miracle principles with particularly speak to the idea that a miracle is something that you receive from God, and GIVE TO another person. Remember giving and receiving are ONE.
3 - Miracles occur naturally as EXPRESSIONS of love.
8 - Miracles are healing because they SUPPLY a lack. (remember he who temporarily has more gives to he who temporarily has less)
16 - Miracles are teaching devices for demonstrating it is as blessed to GIVE as to receive.
18 - A miracle is a SERVICE. It is the maximal service you can render to ANOTHER.
19 - Miracles make MINDS (plural) one in God.
21 - Miracles are natural signs of forgiveness. Through miracles you accept God's forgiveness by EXTENDING IT TO OTHERS.
24 - Miracles enable you to HEAL THE SICK and RAISE THE DEAD because you made sickness and death. (the dead aren't going to be raising themselves, they need YOU, the un-dead, to perform the miracle!)
27 - A miracle is a universal blessing from God through me TO ALL MY BROTHERS.
35 - Miracles are EXPRESSIONS of love, but they may not always have observable effects.
40 - The miracle acknowledges EVERYONE AS YOUR BROTHER and mine.
45 - A miracle is never lost. It may TOUCH MANY PEOPLE you have not even met.
AS you can see, if you study the miracle principles it is CLEAR that a miracle is NOT just a shift in your own perception, OR just a healing in your own mind. It is something SHARED and EXPRESSED to others to help them. It's not all about your spiritual ego.
Now, you could loosely interpret most of these in a mindset of, well, this is only speaking of my 'perception' and 'seeking not to change the world' and all that... you could read into that if you want. You could say that your forgiveness just blesses people in a kind of passive way. But miracles are much more than this. This is what we have to wake up to. It's much more than just dealing with your own separate identity. It is about sharing God with others!
What is the title of the book?
"A Course in MIRACLES".
You'd think anyone who knows of Jesus would want to know how he performs miracles, right? He already demonstrated them and now he has given us a manual to learn how to do the same. Hello!
