Anything / Everything

People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle.  But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth.  Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child - our own two eyes.  All is a miracle.
~Thich Nhat Hanh

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet God feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? ...Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these.

Look deep enough into anything 
and you will see everything.
The universe in a grain of sand.
Eternity in each fleeting moment.
A leaf holds the milky way.
Each breath the Wind of Creation.
The faintest sound the cosmic "ohm" -
an echo of the Eternal Voice,
"Let there be...!"
And it was good - very good!
Look deep enough into anything 
and you will see everything.
Look deep enough into your soul
and everything is a gift.
