Poem for Today ~ Behind Me – Dips Eternity

Behind Me – Dips Eternity

Emily Dickinson

Behind Me — dips Eternity –
Before Me — Immortality –
Myself — the Term between –
Death but the Drift of Eastern Gray,
Dissolving into Dawn away,
Before the West begin –

‘Tis Kingdoms — afterward — they say —
In perfect — pauseless Monarchy —
Whose Prince — is Son of None —
Himself — His Dateless Dynasty —
Himself — Himself diversify —
In Duplicate divine —

‘Tis Miracle before Me — then —
‘Tis Miracle behind — between —
A Crescent in the Sea —
With Midnight to the North of Her —
And Midnight to the South of Her —
And Maelstrom — in the Sky —


Inspiring Quote for Today ~ Each Moment is a Miracle

“We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery.”

Feel Good Tip ~ We Are Awesome Miracles

Consider the Wonders of You

Saint Augustine said, “Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.” Is it time to stop and reflect on the miracle of who you are? Think of how your eyes feed information to your brain and in an instant your brain sends messages to the corresponding parts of your body. Think of moments when you were deeply in love and desired the moment to last forever. We are awesome miracles. Take nothing for granted. Be grateful for the who you are.

Thinking Out Loud ~ Be Yourself

You are a Living Miracle

In his work, Self Reliance, Ralph Waldo Emerson writes, “These roses under my window make no reference to former roses or to better ones; they are for what they are; they exist with God to-day. There is no time to them. There is simply the rose; it is perfect in every moment of its existence. Before a leaf-bud has burst, its whole life acts; in the full-blown flower there is no more; in the leafless root there is no less. Its nature is satisfied, and it satisfies nature, in all moments alike.” P. 132

NOTE: Be yourself. You can be no other if you are living authentically. Live in the present and allow yourself to grow into something more miraculous each day. You are a beautiful living miracle.

Think About It ~ A Miraculous Creation



Galaxies, galaxies everywhere – as far as the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope can see. This view of nearly 10,000 galaxies is the deepest visible-light image of the cosmos. Called the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, this galaxy-studded view represents a “deep” core sample of the universe, cutting across billions of light-years.

 I am filled with wonder when I think that I am part of this miraculous creation. 


Today’s Positive Thought ~ Treasure Today and Treasure Yourself

Treasure this day and Treasure yourself, truly, neither will ever happen again (Ray Bradbury).” Each day is special. It’s the only day we have. Why not celebrate each moment? This is the only life we have on planet Earth. Enjoy the miracle of you. Enjoy the miracle of the day given to you. Dance, sing, laugh, and give it your all each moment. You will be creating a life well lived.

Today’s Positive Thought ~ The Miracle of You

“You’re something between a dream and a miracle (Elizabeth Barrett Browning).” We often don’t think of ourselves as a miracle, we look for miracles outside of us. Yet, we are an incomprehensible miracle. When I finished an extensive workout at the gym yesterday I happened to glance at my right forearm. My blood veins were swollen from my exercise. I followed the veins down my forearm. I saw how they branched off into my fingers and for an instant I was overwhelmed with the miracle of my body. I comprehended how all the pieces work together. I was filled with gratitude. Yes, we are something between a dream and a miracle.

Today’s Power Thought ~ Take Care of Your Body

Take care of your body. It is the vessel that carries us through life. Your body is a miraculous machine, it continues to function even when maltreated. Eventually, it can’t keep functioning if we continue to mistreat it. When we start taking care of our body, it will repair itself, and we will be able to function at a high level. 

Today’s Inspiration ~ Every Day is the Best Day

Every day is a renewal, every morning the daily miracle. This joy you feel is life.

~ Gertrude Stein

Something to Think About

Einstein said, “There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle. The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.” When we experience the mysterious we experience life as wonder. We begin to ask questions not so much to gain answers but to open us up to discover new questions to ask. The deeper we delve into the mysterious the more we understand that understanding the mysterious is like peeling an onion one layer at time. There is always a new layer.
