Within a month, the movie, Miracles from Heaven, will be in the theaters. It is about a young girl with an ‘incurable’ disease. Falling from a tree 30 feet, she hit her head, yet emerged unharmed. She tells of how, upon landing upside down inside the hollowed-out trunk, she went to heaven where Jesus spoke with her. Telling him she wanted to stay with him, he said, “No, I have plans for you back on earth.” He said he would send a guardian angel with her to protect her from harm. Miraculously, after the fall, her incurable disease was gone.
Certainly we’ve heard many such miraculous accounts. They do little to shift people’s belief systems. The non-spiritual easily rationalize these accounts away as fanciful coincidences. Science is, of course, a fantastic tool. Yet many of life’s greatest mysteries cannot be fathomed through controlled laboratory tests or scientific experiments. The greatest wonders and most fulfilling aspects of life lie beyond the touch of our current scientific methods.
Everyone senses divinity deep within their own being. That divinity presents itself uniquely to every individual based upon their background and belief systems. For some, it is simply moral fiber or an inner sense of right and wrong. For others, it may be Jesus, Shiva, Durga, or what have you. There is only one unified field, one underlying basis to all of life and existence, one God. Yet that God has many faces.
Will have to read and reflect with this one later this evening.
Yes, science is really wonderful but it is limited by the design study. So as wonderful as science is, it will never give us the whole truth.
I believe I’ve heard you tell us many times that miracles happen everyday. What if something truly historic and unprecedented happened yesterday? Would we even know about it? How about an extraordinary event of monumental proportions happening today? I’m sure even in light of back to back miracles, people will try to disregard it and rationalize it away. If someone tries to pass something off as mere coincidence, I like to introduce the concept of synchronicity. It ought to appeal to their scientific mentality, as it was coined by Carl Jung, but they almost always write that off too.
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” – Albert Einstein
What will tomorrow bring? A Day in the Life – “I read the news today, oh boy.”
Beautiful! Often very sick children in the hospital say angels talk to them. If you go through an experience like that you become aware there is more to life than science.
Thank you so much!
Excellent! I am so glad Michael Mamas wrote a blog on this topic. I’ve wondered about it forever- “The greatest wonders and most fulfilling aspects of life lie beyond the touch of our current scientific methods.”
Love this! Thank you:)
Ahhh here it is:) When I saw the trailer for this movie my hope was that you would comment on it. I have shared this knowledge as an idea to many and it is wonderful to read it so eloquently and accurately.
Great Blog! I would be curious to see the movie…
