What is a miracle?

“I had not become perfect, enlightened or special.  I had become more human.”  (Hansard, The Tibetan Art of Living)

The Course in Miracles lesson 1 says:

Nothing I see in this room (on this street, from this window, in this place) means anything.

The Course is so cryptic, so poorly written (to my mind), that it can take a miracle just to understand it. I’m going to keep trying.

The first lesson is to unlearn what we learn from the cradle – to name and attribute meaning to all things. It’s the beginning of a series of lessons aimed at helping us to see that all of life is perceived within the mind.  Most of what we see is illusion – we must be willing to accept this.  The first miracle is the ability to see the truth.
