“Living in the future is living in an air-castle. Tomorrow is the grave where the dreams of the dreamer, the toiler who toils not, are buried. The man who says he will lead a newer and better life tomorrow, who promises great things for the future, and yet does nothing the present to make that future possible, is living in an air-castle. In his arrogance he is attempting to perform a miracle; he is seeking to turn water into wine, to have harvest without seed-time, to have an end without a beginning.
If we would make our lives worthy of us, grand and noble, solid and impregnable, we must forsake air-castles of dreaming for strongholds of doing. Every man with an ideal has a right to live in the glow and inspiration of it, and to picture the joy of attainment, as the tired traveler fills his mind with the thought of the brightness of home, to quicken his steps and to make the weary miles seem shorter, but the worker should never really worry about the future, think little of it except for inspiration, to determine his course, as mariners study the stars, to make his plans wisely and to prepare for that future by making each separate day the best and truest that he can.
Let us live up the fullness of our possibilities each day. Man has only one day of life— today. He did live yesterday, he may live tomorrow, but he has only today.” ~ William George Jordan
Sitting around waiting for miracles to happen is a fool’s errand. Miracles – effects or extraordinary events in the physical world that surpass all known human or natural powers – can and should happen with much greater frequency than that to which we’ve become accustomed. But how?
Life is part of a larger flow system; it is revealed where the eternal and the temporal meet. When your heart and mind are aligned in a way that permits the uninterrupted flow of life, miracles happen. Healing occurs in ways and at a pace that defies explanation. Obstacles are overcome that previously seemed insurmountable. In short, the apparently impossible becomes imminently achievable.
