A miracle is a correction. It does not create, nor really change at all. It merely looks on devastation, and reminds the mind that what it sees is false.

Explanation of Images: We cannot appreciate reality until we realize the ways in which we still frighten ourselves. We must examine childhood conclusions and admit that we’re making it up. We can take responsibility for the ways we still frighten ourselves. In this way we begin to choose what works in our lives. When we see fear for what it is, we are never frightened by it again. We forgive the world for the order it has. We don’t insist on understanding everything and we practice what works. When we do this consistently we find ourselves in the ‘Happy Dream’ where we have friends that love and appreciate us. We’re not alone and friendless.
