Caravan Palace: Miracle

 

Every day we live a miracle
Unpredictable
You don’t need an upgrade anymore
Can’t you see the leak?
Don’t worry I will teach you how to take the pill
To feel the thrill and touch it all!

Caravan Palace, Miracle

I was happy to see that one of my favorite bands has a new single out.

Every moment of every day is a miracle. That we are alive is a miracle. This Earth and universe is a miracle. That anything exists at all is a baffling and awe-inspiring miracle.

Recognizing this miracle doesn’t change (the rest of) what we experience, but it does change how we experience it. It changes the context of our experience.

And how do we take the pill? Here is the prescription from Caravan Palace.

I will teach you how to take the pill
To feel the thrill and touch it all!

(Act like a brother)
Every day is a miracle
(Help one another)
Connect back with the people
(Give it to your lover)
And all the people you miss
(Let’s come around)

(Act like a brother)
Don’t think you’re invisible
(Help one another)
Connect back with the people
(Give it to your lover)
And all the people you miss
(Let’s come around)

Draft….

I was happy to see that one of my favorite band has a new single out. So how do we take the pill? Music is obviously one way.

The more receptive our mind and heart, the closer we are consciously aligned with reality, the less we are caught up in beliefs and identifications, the more we find genuine gratitude for what’s here, the easier it is for us to notice that this and everything is a miracle.

Every moment of every day is a miracle. That we are alive is a miracle. This Earth and universe is a miracle. That anything exists at all is a baffling and awe-inspiring miracle.

From initial draft…

That anything exists at all is a baffling and awe-inspiring miracle. And what exists – what we experience through all of our sense fields – is that miracle and a miracle in itself.

As for other approaches to live the miracle, the ones I am familiar with from own experience are the ones I often write about here.

  • Mindful movement (yoga, taichi, chigong, Breema) gives us an immediate and juicy sense of the bodymind whole and the aliveness that comes with it.
  • Basic meditation helps us notice and stay close to what’s happening in the sense fields and makes it less likely we get absorbed into the content of thought.
  • Training a more stable attention enhances all aspects of our life and brings a sense of aliveness.
  • Heart-centered practices help us reorient towards and befriend life.
  • Inquiry helps us remove our own obstacles to experiencing the miracle of life.
  • All-inclusive gratitude practices helps open our heart and mind towards life.
  • Shifting into Big Mind and headlessness helps us notice what we are and everything is.

Living in service to the larger whole is another way to notice and live the miracle. As is, of course, divine energy healing (Vortex Healing) which is an immediate reminder of the miracle and grace of existence.
