The Miracle You Are About To Do

As you go ahead reading these words, a miracle will happen. Something so magical, so UNBELIEVABLE, that we won’t even recognize it for the miracle it is.

A thought will arise in your subconscious brain, a few electrical signals will be generated, they will travel across your body at lightning fast speed, and that simple thought will cause your entire hand to move. In short, you will scroll down the page.
Now, that’s no miracle, you would think. But slow down for a moment and ask yourself- what just happened? All it took was the power of one thought for your entire hand to move- cells, nerves, tissue and muscle. One thought, and that is all.
You would probably sit back and say, “Ha! There are so many fantastic things I can do, much more complex than moving my own hand. So are they all miracles?!”
And I say to you, “Yes. They are.”

We humans have evolved so much from that single celled organism billions of years ago that we feel ashamed to even look back and marvel at the simplicity of how life works. We don’t wake up to see the sunrise every morning because, “Who cares!? It happens every day!” 
But with this simple fragment of your mind, in that thin sliver of time called a millisecond, lies the base of all that is true and real in the world- a single thought.

Lately, there has been an explosion of work on this subject- quantum physics, lab experiments, psychological studies and loads of books. They all conclude one thing- that thoughts can change reality. It all sounds good on paper. But is it really possible?!
The basis of this principle is simple- Everything is Energy. Go back to your Grade 5, when you were first introduced to Science; atoms, molecules, solids, liquids and gases. The walls around us, the clothes we wear, the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the stars in the sky we see. They are essentially made up of the same matter-atoms and molecules. And those atoms are nothing but empty spaces with small sub-atomic particles like electrons, protons, neutrons and others. In short, they are all energy.
The reason some things are solid, liquid, or gaseous, heavy or light, red or green color, is all because of the different energy frequencies they are in, i.e. different energy levels. So this establishes one fact firmly- Everything is Energy.

In the 21st century, human minds and its workings have become the favorite topic for experimentation for scientists and researchers. Experiments have been conducted on minds trained in meditation, in various environments- for example, a group of Tibetan monks, wearing just a thin cloth, meditating at freezing temperatures in the Himalayas, yet managing to keep their body temperature at normal.
How would one explain that? So, this question was taken into the laboratory- highly powerful detectors and instruments connected to the heads of these monks, and when they meditated, the readings were recorded. And the results shook the world of science.

Thoughts were found to be signals of energy emitted by the brain, at different frequencies. The mind was like a radio station that continuously emitted ‘thought-waves’ into the universe. And these little packets of energy we call thoughts are responsible for making the entire world around us, little by little, bit by bit.

There are a number of powerful sayings, like-
“If you think you can or you think you can’t, either way you are right.” – Henry Ford
 “Ask and you shall receive. Knock and it shall be opened. Have faith, and you can move mountains.”- The Holy Bible
 “When you Believe, the whole universe conspires to fulfill your heart’s desire.” –Paulo Coelho

At the bottom of these very wise sayings, however, is one common message- “You are in control of your own life.”
The thoughts you think define the state of mind that you are in- happiness, hopelessness, inspiration, depression, love, hatred and so on. And every such thought affects the quality of the work you do, in every single moment of your life.

You will notice that the people who complain the most about disease, financial problems, family problems, are the ones who suffer from them. Life if full of problems like these, but the ones who can look upon these little problems as nothing but specks of dust on the beautiful canvas of our lives, and live each say smilingly, are the ones who are truly happy.

Keep the big picture of your life in mind. Your whole life doesn’t revolve around the irritating neighbor, or the headache you have, or the ups and downs you are having.
There’s much more to life than just that.

We look at people who’ve achieved greatness, who’re living legends, and who seem to believe lives that we can only dream of. And we think, “Wow! They're so lucky! I can never be like them!” That’s when you kill yourself.

Don’t forget. Thoughts are the beginning. If you’re afraid to even think or dream of something, how will you ever change the world?
Get a grip on yourself.
Stop blaming the world for what’s going on in your life.
It’s all in your Hands. It’s all in your Mind.

You’re the sculptor making your own Masterpiece every moment of your life.
And the Masterpiece is You.

So set your goals. Dream for the Impossible.
Know that everything you wish for will come true.
There is nothing in the world that can come in Your way. Except You…
