What we call miracles are unexpected experiences. We don't predict them beforehand. They create wonder in us. We are in awe of them.
When we expect a miracle, we are not so impressed with it, for it doesn't take us by surprise.
Of course, we are one of those miracles!
You've heard of Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, a researcher, who wrote My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey.
Because of a stroke, she lost the categorizing, organizing, describing, judging and critically analyzing skills of her left brain, along with its language centers and ego center. Without her left brain’s neural circuitry, her consciousness shifted into present moment thinking. The functions of her right hemisphere blossomed! She became an artist, and she experienced herself “at one with the universe.”
Through her experience and her medical background, Jill tells how we can ‘tend the garden of our minds’ and maximize our quality of life. She says that we can consciously influence the neural circuitry underlying what we think, how we feel, and how we react to life’s circumstances. She tells us that we can exercise our own right hemispheric circuitry and make a difference to the world. “... the more time we spend running our deep inner peace circuitry, the more peace we will project into the world, and ultimately the more peace we will have on the planet.”
I can't help wondering, simply by our innocent reading of Heavenletters, are we developing our own deep inner peace brain circuitry? On the whole, through Heavenletters, we feel better. Is this then how we serve God and the universe whether we are aware of it or not?
