This week’s prompt of the week is based on the quote,
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” ― Albert EinsteinTweet
As we near the end of the year, it’s a natural time for reflection and contemplation. This week’s prompt invites us to consider the miracle of life and all that it entails.
Life is a precious and fragile thing, and the fact that we exist at all is a testament to the complexity and wonder of the world around us. From the tiniest microbe to the tallest tree, all living things are connected in a delicate and intricate web of life.
But what exactly makes life a miracle? Is it the fact that we are able to think, feel, and experience the world around us? Is it the way that life adapts and evolves over time? Or is it something else entirely?
Whatever it is that makes life a miracle, it’s undeniable that it is a force to be reckoned with. It has the power to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles and to thrive in even the most challenging of environments. It is a source of wonder and amazement, and it is something that we should all take the time to appreciate and celebrate.
So as we reflect on the miracle of life, let us be grateful for all that it has given us and all that it has yet to offer. Let us embrace the gift of life and all that it entails, and let us do our part to nurture and protect it for generations to come.

My guess is things depend on whether one believes in God (Supreme power) or not.
People who believe in God assert that everything is a miracle and that events are taking place according to His will.
They say that God is running this Universe 🌌 and none of us in a position to explain, the reason or logic behind every thing/ every action/every reaction that is happening in this world that you may or may not be experiencing.
One can describe a few things, but many events are difficult to comprehend.
Every day and night, we witness countless marvels that we find difficult to explain (Sunset, Sunrise, seasons, ecosystem, humans remain same but have different attitude to a particular situation, planets maintaining a perfect timing of spinning such that no Collison happen- the list is too long)
Why can’t things be the same for everyone and how do we explain happiness, grief, poverty, and wealth, among other things.
Tell me why we are breathing at this particular time.
Is it not a miracle that we are both still alive right now and talking to each other via WordPress?
How do you explain the butterfly effect, which has been proven by science? (simple action leads to a complicated, unforeseen outcome)
We all know that something (beyond our limited knowledge) is directing the disorderly universe in an orderly manner despite the greatest efforts of scientists and atheists to provide the best explanations. Certain acts of God can’t be explained.
We lack knowledge in several areas, thus we cannot always provide the ideal solution.
According to the concept of a miracle, it cannot be explained by existing natural laws.
Let’s simply keep in mind that everything that occurs in our lives is a miracle.
Thank you for giving me an opportunity to rant.

Thank you for sharing your perspective on the concept of miracles and the role that faith and belief in a higher power play in understanding them. It’s true that there are many events and phenomena in the world that are difficult to explain and that seem to defy our current understanding of natural laws. These mysteries can certainly leave us feeling humbled and awestruck, and they can also inspire us to continue seeking answers and expanding our knowledge.
At the same time, it’s important to recognize that there are also many things in the world that can be explained through scientific understanding and that are not necessarily considered “miracles” in the traditional sense. Science has made great strides in helping us to understand the natural world and the underlying laws that govern it, and it continues to be a powerful tool for discovering new knowledge and making sense of the world around us.
Ultimately, whether or not we believe in miracles may depend on our individual beliefs and perspectives. Some people find meaning and purpose in the idea that certain events are guided by a higher power, while others may find satisfaction in understanding the natural causes and explanations for these events. Regardless of our beliefs, it’s important to remain open-minded and to be willing to consider multiple viewpoints and perspectives. So, it’s a personal choice to believe in miracles or not.
Couldn’t agree more.
Science is helping us unravel the mysteries.
But so much is left to understand better and that may not happen in my time.
In life for everything we have two answers.
As you rightly put it, the choice is left to the individuals.
Thank you for your excellent perspective.
