There are only two ways to live life: one as if everything is a miracle the other as if nothing is. Albert Einstein

What is a miracle? There are three kinds of miracles: the first is the repetitive miracles we have come to all know and rely on called nature.

The second are the awe inspiring miracles that make us blink, have wide opened jaws and be consumed by the grandeur of God, such as the birth of a baby, the miraculous disappearance of cancer and of course the multiple miracles recorded in the Bible.

But the there is a third kind of miracle which is far greater than the previous two, its greatness lies not in its repetition nor in its draw dropping grandeur, rather in its simplicity; for simplicity is the essence of God (as the Baal Shem Tov teaches, the simplicity of a simple / genuine / authentic /sincere person touches the simplicity of God for where the potential for complete complexity exists, the ultimate is found in the complete simple / genuine / authentic /sincere, namely truth; it is only we who have difficulty in the complex that we marvel at the latest technology, at a mathematician who can figure out sums, or a painter that can draw, or a singer that can sing better then we do – think about it) and as we mentioned a few blogs ago – precisely the simple wisdom God gives us, directing our complex (at least in perception) lives, towards simplicity genuineness authenticity and sincerity, namely the wisdom of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, the wisdom of God in the Bible, and the wisdom God shares with us – as mentioned – is the ultimate.
