Miracle People 2015-12-28

MiraclesHappenI often can be heard saying, “How does somebody like that, become somebody like that?” That is the all-inclusive question embodying intrigue, mystery, awe, brilliance, intelligence, charisma, pluckiness, fearlessness, bravery, perseverance and luck all rolled into one big ‘miracle’.

How did Julius Caesar become such a charasmatic if not tragic political figure and have left an enduring mark on the fabric of our society still today centuries later? After all beside the historical facts, there’s Caesarian births, Caesar salads, Caesars’ Palace in Las Vegas, Caesar this, Caesar that, all over the world.

There’s miracle people of every age in every generation of every century of human history. I could list them for literally days and days and days and never come to the end. Everyone has their own interpretation of what their ‘miracle’ person is and what makes up that special ‘thing’ making them a ‘miracle’. You can flip through an encyclopedia or history book or watch movies about historical figures, do research, any number of ways to look into the life of a ‘miracle’, but a recounting of that person’s upbringing, what they did to become who they were, the struggle, the determination, the journey, still leaves an elusiveness that if there was a pattern or a recipe, then it wouldn’t be a ‘miracle’, we’d all do it. True ‘miracles’ are that because they are, well… ‘miracles.’

Confucius say is in our lexicon nearly 2500 years after the death of the Chinese philosopher; William Shakespeare and his unique and brilliant writing; Leonardo DaVinci with his visionary inventions and breathtaking art; Lewis and Clark undertaking the perils of an uncharted wild land; George Washington becoming the father of a new country; Abraham Lincoln losing his life in the pursuit of righting a social wrong and uniting a country; Jonas Salk and his life-saving polio vaccine, Henry Ford and his revolutionary horseless buggy; Nikola Tesla and electricity; Thomas Edison developing a commercially successful light bulb and phonograph; Alexander Graham Bell and the telephone; Martin Luther King, Jr. preaching a world of peace where all men really are created equal; John Lennon with prophet-like music driving meaningful social messages of peace and love; Steve Jobs leading the personal computer and phone revolutions; Bill Gates taking computer software to a higher realm of mass user-friendly availability; Mother Theresa winning the hearts of the world through her pious charity work; sports star Michael Jordan who crossed all boundaries through excellence and innovation in play, good looks, widely desirable casual fashion, merchandising andmarketing, media, familiarity all over the world to the point where we all wanted to Be Like Mike; Mark Zuckerberg and the Facebook phenomenon connecting families and friends in seconds; Afghanistan’s Malala Yousafzai who took on the Taliban and stifling womens’ rights to fight for their ability to pursue an education;  and as I said — an endless listing of ‘miracle’-worthy people.

I marvel at these humans who have often come from meagre backgrounds and virtual obscurity to become bonafide memorable transcendent people. I believe those are people who have taken on a task, pursued their purpose, and persevered in making it work at a high level. I am prophesizing that someday the world will be so filled with ‘miracle’ people, they won’t be considered ‘miracle’ people anymore. We’re all raised to try to get an education, learn a trade, make ourselves desirable to the workforce, being one of, fitting in that we not only don’t cultivate our uniqueness, but don’t even know it’s there. The people who break-out of this mold are the ones who literally do not know there is any other way to be than to be pursuant of their promise. They aren’t looking at it as  having a shot at making a difference, they wear their ability to make a difference like an old comfortable sweater.  Sure there’s worn spots, stretched yarn in places, holes that need to be filled, but the sweater is so like a second skin and so comfortable getting rid of it isn’t given a thought. After many years of not know what that purpose could possibly be for someone like me, I have come to realize that these ‘miracles’ are within every single one of us. It’s up to us to discover our own. How? I guess I’m still trying to put my finger on it… Sandy
