There is no such thing as a miracle. There are only ways of regarding reality. In my blog dealing with Structure of Reality, I described the fourfold nature of man. For as long as we regard reality with our senses, we are stuck, irrevocably in the reality which responds to the observer who uses physical means to observe physical phenomena. Hence the scientists are usually stuck in the past in which the phenomena have already taken place, and all they can do is to observe the end of a creative process.
There are, of course, other ways of observing reality. One could say that every opus of any number of the great composers is a miracle. Yet the miraculous aspect of it is that it must be re-created here and now to give it reality. Until the moment that the symphony, a concerto, or a sonata is played, it only exists as an idea which has been expressed as a pattern on a piece of paper. The music is not there yet.
The same can be said of other creative arts, wherein the artists does little more than to bring out and put on paper or linen, or uncover from a block of stone an idea that dwelled within his or her higher consciousness, waiting to be uncovered. Waiting to be brought out into the physical reality.
Great mathematicians, which group in the past included philosophers, see reality as patterns. They see the interdependence and inter-relationship of one thing to another. The greatest achievement of Einstein were not his equations, but his ability to perceive the reality as making mathematical sense. Where he erred was in attempting to stabilize the creative process, forgetting that the process itself is endless. Hence probability rather than inevitability.
Finally we come to regarding reality as an idea. In the eyes of an advanced observer, an idea is always perfect. Later, the execution of such an idea suffers from inadequacies of our abilities. Hence, we need evolution to assure that the ideas will continually better developed until, to paraphrase the Lord’s Prayer, “the idea of the observer will be as perfect on earth as it is in heaven”.
Should we be able to maintain the perfection of an idea through the all phases of the creative process, and anchor it in the subconscious, such would be manifested in the physical reality. Hence, the “spontaneous” cures. Yet let us remember that the instant the perfect idea becomes manifest in the dualistic reality it suffers from gradual degradation.
What some of the great mystics succeeded in was not in changing our physical reality, but in perceiving the truth behind it, the original idea, which, through their inimitable conviction (some call it faith) they managed to manifest here and now. Those events we describe as miracles. In fact those events are what we should all strive for. Here and now.
My novel Peter and Paul attempts to illustrate what is involved within the human psyche to succeed in this endeavour. Try it. You might be among the few who succeed.
