The word “miracle” has the ability to make your heart skip a beat. As humans, we all hope to have a miracle-filled life, right? Look at Hollywood: Movie studios have made a fortune selling us miraculous stories that we watch on the big screen with ... maybe not belief but hope in our eyes.
I’ll admit that I’ve often prayed for miracles in my life. However, as I peeled off layers of conditioning on my spiritual journey, I started to wonder, “What is a miracle?” It’s very important to understand the true meaning of a miracle before wishing for one.

“This is a miracle, sir!!” he said as he accepted the sandwich.
“Why do you say that?” I asked.
