Poems about Miracles

two miracles

Only two miracles are worth seeing:
The miracle of loving
And
The miracle of forgiving.

- Sri Chinmoy

~

The miracle of miracles is this:
You can and you will
Conquer your enemies
Sooner than the soonest.
But you who have been
Your own true enemy
Will take thousands and thousands of years
To achieve the perfection needed.

Sri Chinmoy
~

I do not have to see
Any miracle,
For I myself have become
A living miracle.
Do you know how?
Just by taming
My explosive energy.

Sri Chinmoy
~

The whole world is looking for miracles.
Every day it is dying to see miracles.
But can there be any miracle
More challenging, more illumining
And more fulfilling
Than to see and feel the infinite Beauty
Of my Beloved Supreme
Inside this tinier than the tiniest
Gratitude-heart of mine?

- Sri Chinmoy

 

~

Miracles were perhaps necessary
At the very start
Of your aspiration-life.
But once you have successfully
Started your inner journey,
Not only are miracles unnecessary,
But they may hinder your speedy progress
Far beyond your imagination.

- Sri Chinmoy

~

I do not need miracles, please.
I do not even want
To see miracles, please.
I need and expect only
A crying heart and a smiling life.

- Sri Chinmoy

~

Miracles are everywhere to be found
When I surrender my infinite desires
To my immortal aspirations.

- Sri Chinmoy

Question: Do miracles have any value?

Sri Chinmoy: The greatest miracle is to remain for one extra second in a divine consciousness. If you can remain one second more in a divine consciousness, then that is the supreme miracle on earth. Miracles will not help you achieve God-realisation. Far from it. In fact, miracles can create all kinds of problems.

There was once a Master who had occult power which attracted many disciples, but God told him to stop using it. Then he started telling his disciples that he had lost all his power, so that the miracle-seekers would leave him. Then he began a real spiritual life. The real miracle is to remain in the highest consciousness. It is not the miracles that Christ performed that compel the world to adore him, but the infinite Compassion and Love which he eternally embodies.
