One of the most wonderful principals known to man is called the miracle principal. It has revolutionized the lives of many people who have learned its secret and how to put it into practice. Six words describe the principal: Expect a miracle-make miracles happen.
If you keep your eyes open expectantly every day for great and wonderful things to happen, it is astonishing that great and wonderful things will tend to happen to you. Always think of the best.
Never think of the worst. And if the worst invades your consciousness, think of it in terms of how to make it the best. What you think habitually will tend to happen. The naturalist, Johm Burroughs,once said "My own shall come to me." What we send out mentally and spiritually will return to us. We become what we are in our thoughts.
A man came forward and started telling me all his troubles. "I am in a sea of trouble," he said.
My next engagement required that I leave the auditorium quickly and therefore I had only a minute or two to say something to him. Why I said what I said I don't know, but afterwards I thought it was probably inspiration. Quickly I commented, "Okay, I get the picture. Expect a miracle."
"What do you mean," he asked in suprise, "expect a miracle?"
"I don't know, I replied. "Guess you must figure it out for yourself."
Later he told me that he went away from that place muttering to himself, "What did he mean by that crazy statement, Expect a miracle?" Then he began to realize that he had been expecting anything but a miracle. Accordingly he was getting everything but miracles. As he started expecting miracles, lo and behold, miracles began to flood into his life. </144719> </Truth in Thinking>
