“A miracle is a correction introduced into false thinking by me. It acts as a catalyst, breaking up erroneous perception and reorganizing it properly. This places you under the Atonement principle, where perception is healed. Until this has occurred, knowledge of the Divine Order is impossible. (T-1.I.37)”
We all want miracles, but miracles are important simply because they correct our perception. Correcting our perception leads us to an understanding of what is so important about Atonement. We need to see differently. Above all else we need to see differently.
We cannot know what God has in store for us (the “Divine Order”) unless our perception is healed. And healed perception leads to knowledge, for knowledge is God’s gift to us. Only He can bestow knowledge, for only He has the knowledge.
So we seek for miracles in order to see rightly. To see with vision, which doesn’t involve the physical eyes at all. We are not seeing strange things inwardly, though; we are seeing the reality at its utmost. We are seeing clearly for the first time since the separation.
A miracle does act as a catalyst, breaking up erroneous perception, and this is its link to Atonement.
May all of us seek for the real benefit of miracles today.
