“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
– Albert Einstein
There is no mystery
Driving home tonight from teaching a dance class with special needs teenagers and young adults, the thought came through my mind, “There is no mystery,” as I stared at the salt washed bumper of the car ahead of me, waiting to go at a yield sign.
Things work. They do. Science proves it, our bodies show it in every moment of every day, we experience this when we marvel at a miraculous experience and say, “How did that happen.” In these moments, we’re experiencing things working right before our very eyes.
For a long time, I found myself saying, “Wow, life is such a mystery,” when something out of no where would line up or a strange and fantastic coincidence would present itself, like seeing someone I knew from Buffalo while walking down the street on an island in the Pacific.
I’ve been living in this idea of “it doesn’t work” or “See, it’s not working,” and that’s been seriously limiting my viewpoint of what IS working.
When I think of a mystery, it’s something that cannot be explained. To me, a mystery is something magical that seems to happen out of nowhere. It’s that great void of not knowingness that I think most of us human’s experience many times over and over again.
What I see now and what I realized on my way home tonight is that there is no mystery.
Things work, and that’s just what it is.
What’s working in your life, in your body, in life around you right now?
What’s possible when you come from a viewpoint of “It’s working”?
