All is a Miracle

Thich Nhat Hanh

 I like to walk alone on country paths, 
rice plants and wild grasses on both sides,


putting each foot down on the earth
 in mindfulness,

knowing 
that I walk on the wondrous earth.


In such moments, existence is a miraculous 
and mysterious reality.

People usually consider walking on water

or in thin air a miracle.

But I think the real miracle

is not to walk either on water or in thin air,

but to walk on earth.

Every day we are engaged in a miracle

which we don’t even recognize:

a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves,

the black, curious eyes of a child–

our own two eyes.

All is a miracle.
