Miracle Mindedness

In essence, miracle-mindedness is the purified state of mind that the masters achieved, such as Buddha and Christ. Such “miracle-mindedness” is a way of viewing abundance and miracles in terms of having nothing to do with owning or having anything, because in the spiritual dimension there is nothing to own or to have.  Knowing this affects what, how and why we manifest.

The current way we think of abundance is to think of things we can have and own. Many of our concepts of manifestation naturally encourage us to revolve such metaphysical principles around our ego and its needs, wants and desires; as well as its need to conform to society, its rules, beliefs, dictates, and institutions – all aspects of a fear-based mentality and way of living that encourages excessive wantingness out of feelings of “not being enough.”  This is to be forgiven because we are human and we haven’t yet learned how to live in any other way than this one. We fear we would not survive if we tried.  However, living this way is not miracle-minded, because we live controlled by fear and all the illusionary constructs we abide by (the rules, institutions, dictates, money system, etc.).  These constructs are not real, they are just ideas of the mind that say “you need to do it this way or you will suffer that.”  Which, as the miracle-minded man knows, all of these are illusions and so he does not need to be led by them. He can break the mold within his thinking and his mind.

In contrast to the miracle mind-set, the ego-driven mind-set keeps us focused on our anxieties, on wanting things, and on outcomes. Which, yes, some of what we want can manifest from this predisposition, but not without there being an expense that sometimes results when what we want arises from a root fear of loss or of not having enough (such as when we expend or deplete energy through striving, stress or using various resources in less sustainable ways–which can deplete life energy through killing what has life within it to produce something lifeless). Alternatively, when manifestation arises from miracle-mindedness, loss does not need to take place. This is because there is no anxiety or seeking to gain something at a future time or place. There is also no need to destroy life in less sustainable ways through feeling this is the only way to “get ahead” or advance materially. For, the miracle mind-set–which is complete free from fear–can only be achieved through releasing attachments.

Even according to various scriptures and the teachings of many of our masters, a mind-set of complete freedom from fear can only be achieved through releasing the world and our attachments. This is why Jesus, Buddha and other mystics often had to walk away from the world and their attachments for a time. Jesus walked the wilderness for 40 days where he faced the devil (temptations and desires). As for Buddha, he walked away from his family and royalty. Through his enlightenment process he would face and be tempted by Mara (the Buddhist equivalent of the devil).

It makes sense that once free from our attachments, manifestation can then occur free of ego, fear, desires and without needing “middle steps.” For example, the desire to manifest money is a “middle step” to “having” something else; manifesting a love interest is a middle step to feeling loved. Those who are miracle minded have no need for middle steps. Additionally, how we tend to pursue manifestation, it seems we are all searching for a feeling of contentment and completion. Jesus and Buddha, both miracle minded, I imagine already felt complete.

In the end, miracle-mindedness allows us to release our obsessions and our desires in order to be one with the Creator in the now, rather than through hoping to attain something material in the future.  It allows divine recognition of the true miracle which is all around us everywhere at all times.  In allowing this divine recognition of the miracle, it creates a true abundance mind-set; not one based upon how much “success” or physical “wealth” we can attain.  In fact, with miracle-mindedness there is no success or failure.  There is only an abundant respect for life everywhere (in which the Holy Spark is recognized as being one with our own spark).  There is a release of the need to keep seeking our self-worth externally and in ways which self-sabotage us in the end—because such efforts fail to recognize the Holiest of Holies in everything that is living. When in self-sabotage mode, we end up destroying more of the bigger picture (which is communicated through our environmental issues) rather than respecting and co-creating with it.  Miracle-mindedness, however, helps us to find our way back to co-creation (out of separatedness), and to a sense of self-esteem that is dependent upon nothing in form.
