Paint A Miracle Today

paint-ccPAINT is a magical, miraculous substance capable of changing the color of an object.  A vast variety of pigments and tints can be added to this liquid substance to create a coating of the desired color and hue. Easily changed or even removed in its liquid state, PAINT becomes fixed when it dries.  Metaphysically, PAINT represents the thoughts and energy we project into our world and our experiences.  We can PAINT our thoughts or experiences in the color or hue of our choosing.  We can choose a color that vibrates with joy and harmony. Or, we can choose a color that constricts or vibrates with fear or anger.  Thoughts and energies held for long periods of time become fixed and require one or more coats of a new color, or new thoughts.  If I have been holding thoughts of fear or anger for a long period of time, it may require numerous affirmative thoughts to change the picture I have allowed to become fixed in my mind. Today, I paint a miracle. I paint the world with shades of Love, Healing, Acceptance, Forgiveness, Faith and Joy and they become fixed in my mind and in my life.

A Miracle A Day, Day 69

WATERMELON.dreamstimefree_172818WATERMELON.  A juicy, delightful miracle of fruit.  I recall watermelon as the highlight of picnic lunches and family reunions as a child.  It was not an everyday occurrence so it seemed extravagant and especially exciting to see those juicy red slabs ringed with white then green, dotted here and there with large, inedible seeds. Today I think about the relatively small size of those seeds and how they contrast with the enormous fruit that stems from them.  It is miraculous to me that one small seed can produce so much fruit, juice, excitement, and joy.  As I ponder what my next thought might be I consider how like the watermelon seed my thoughts are.  One small seed can produce a day filled with joy and glory.  And one small seed can, if I allow it, produce a day of challenge and struggle.  The WATERMELON is a delightful miracle of pink pulp, sweet juice and seeds.  My thoughts are also a miracle producing experiences enfolded within their nature.  And even more miraculous is my ability to witness and choose the thoughts I hold in mind.  I can see them crop up and choose to plant only the ones that will produce what is joyful, enormous, fruitful, delightful, sweet, and extravagant.  Planting delightful WATERMELON seeds in my mind and in the world today.  Affirming the same for you.
