Inspiration Course: Lesson 11

We're All Interconnected

Page Two of Two

The great lesson from the true mystics is that the sacred is in the ordinary, that it is to be found in one's daily life, in one's neighbors, friends, and family, in one's back yard, and that travel may be a flight from confronting the sacred. To be looking everywhere for miracles is a sure sign of ignorance that everything is miraculous.
   ~  Abraham Maslow in his book Religions, Values, and Peak Experiences

Pronoia is the antidote for paranoia. It's the brazen perception that all of creation is conspiring to shower us with blessings.
