        * eine Inspiration
        * eine Gnadenerfahrung
        * ein heiligmäßiges Phänomen
        * das Auftauchen des Möglichen in der Welt des Wahrscheinlichen
        * rekontextualisierte Wissendheit
        * eine Schau (während der die Augen übergehen)

Wunderheilungen

Spontane Remission ist der medizinische Fachausdruck für Wunderheilung. Ärzte nehmen dieses Phänomen selten als Ausdruck ihrer Kunst in Anspruch, wirken jedoch zumeist ungelenk oder peinlich berührt, wenn sie dazu Stellung nehmen. Placebo-Medikamente und Placebo-Operationen zeigen bisweilen denselben heilsamen Effekt.

 

Nach seinen wundersamen Heilungen forderte Jesus die Geheilten wiederholt dazu auf, anderen gegenüber nicht von ihrem früheren Leid zu berichten.1 Dieser Rat könnte eine Vorsichtsmaßnahme sein, sich der möglichen negativen Beeinflussung durch die Umgebung zu entziehen und somit einem Rückfall in die Krankheit vorzubeugen.

Das Wunderpotential im Menschen

Was vor uns liegt und was hinter uns liegt,
sind Kleinigkeiten zu dem, was in uns liegt.
Und wenn wir das, was IN uns liegt,
nach außen in die Welt tragen,
geschehen Wunder.

Zitate von D. Hawkins

⚠ Achtung Siehe Power vs. Truth (engl.) Januar 2013

  • Heiligmäßiges schwingt auf dem Bewusstseinsgrad 570, und auf dieser Ebene geschehen Wunder. Quelle unbekannt

 

  • Ein Wunder ist die rekontextualisierte Wissendheit […], bei der das Hindernis der Wahrnehmung aufgehoben ist. Quelle unbekannt

 

  • Lass dich von Wundern nicht in Bann ziehen. Ihre Beschaffenheit ist nicht persönlich; das Geschehen wird vom Feld registriert. Quelle unbekannt

 

  • Lass dich nicht vom Wundersamen faszinieren. Es geschieht von selbst; die Kundalini-Energie vollbringt es einfach, ohne im Geringsten mit dir Rücksprache zu nehmen. Kein Ich hat es ausgeführt. Und es ist unvorhersagbar. Wunder sind nicht nach Terminplan ausführbar. Quelle unbekannt

 

  • Bete um ein Wunder, um die Wahrheit zu sehen. Quelle unbekannt

 

 

  • In jedem untersuchten Fall, in dem eine hoffnungslose und nicht mehr zu behandelnde Krankheit [spontan] geheilt wurde, hat eine nachhaltige Bewusstseinsveränderung stattgefunden, wodurch die Attraktormuster, die zur Krankheitsbildung geführt hatten, nicht mehr vorherrschend waren.

Quotes by D. Hawkins

Personal avowals

  • The overall condition of my nerves improved slowly, and then another phenomenon commenced — a sweet, delicious band of energy continuously flowing up the spine and into the brain, where it created an intense sensation of continuous pleasure. Everything in life happened by synchronicity, evolving in perfect harmony, and the miraculous was commonplace. The origin of what the world would call miracles was the Presence, not my personal self. What remained of the personal "me" was only a witness to these phenomena. The greater "I," deeper than my own self or my own thoughts, determined all that happened. Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, S. ?, Hay House, February 2002

 

  • The miraculous happened, beyond ordinary comprehension. Many chronic maladies from which I had suffered for years disappeared; my eyesight spontaneously normalized and I no longer needed my lifetime bifocals. Occasionally I would feel an exquisitely blissful energy, and Infinite Love, suddenly begin to radiate from my heart toward the scene of some calamity. Once I was driving on a highway when this exquisite energy began to beam out of my chest; as I rounded a bend, there was an auto accident, the wheels of the upturned car still spinning. The energy passed with great intensity into the occupants of the car and then stopped of its own accord. Interview with Dr. David Hawkins, Power vs. Force, presented by US American magazine Light in Times, August 2004
⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

 

  • If an event occurs outside the domain of explanation or expected linear causality and the Newtonian paradigm, it is termed a miracle. It is an eventuality that is brought into actuality by removal of the impediments of negativity. This may involve relinquishment of limiting belief systems, such as, "It's impossible,' or 'It is not deserved," or other ego viewpoints. For those who have reached higher levels of consciousness, the miraculous is not only commonplace, it is the natural course of events and becomes continuous. The miraculous comes out of creation and not causality. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 139, 2001

 

  • Question: How do you explain the miraculous?
    Answer: The term 'miraculous' stems from the Newtonian paradigm, which is limited by the confines of logic in material form and the assumption of causality. Miracles are only comprehensible from the nonlinear domain. When spiritual power becomes focused on faulty perception, it is replaced by vision of the underlying reality which is not within the realm of logic. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 316, 2001

 

  • When we unreservedly support life without expecting gain, life supports us in return. When we abandon gain as a motive, life responds with unexpected generosity. When we perceive in this way, the miraculous begins to appear in the life of every dedicated spiritual aspirant. Harmony manifests as the unexpected discovery, the fortuitous coincidence, and the lucky break, and finally the realization occurs that these are the ripples coming back to oneself from the seat of consciousness. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 22, 2003

  • The key element to the empowerment of the Will is consent. This act of surrender (see Tiebout, 19492) allows for the miraculous, which is a bifurcation of the life process (as described by nonlinear dynamics and the Heisenberg principle). The intention then intensifies the emergence of potentiality into experiential existential reality. This is also the mechanism described at length in the famous A Course in Miracles (1975). It is also the critical first step in Alcoholics Anonymous and other faith-based groups that admit, "without God's help, we were hopeless and helpless" (AA, 2000). Truth vs. Falsehood. How to Tell the Difference, chapter 16 Religion and Truth, The Will (Cal. 850), S. 358-359, 2005

 

  • From consciousness level 540 and up into the higher 500s, phenomena occur spontaneously that are inexplicable by reason, the customary conceptualization of logic, or cause and effect. They are an accompaniment to the progressive dominance of the spiritual energy (kundalini) and occur as a consequence of the contextual field rather than by volition. They are witnessed and seen to occur autonomously. These have been classically termed siddhis (Sanskrit) and denote 'supranatural' or 'miraculous/mystical powers', as they are not explicable by logic. Transcending the Levels of Consciousness. The Stairway to Enlightenment, S. 262, 2006

Expect a miracle, pray a storm

  • When phenomena appear that are beyond the expectations of logic or reason, they tend to become described as ‘mystical, ineffable, or miraculous’ to denote the consequence of intention and the response of the contextual field that results in emergence. Therefore, to ‘expect a miracle,’ or ‘pray for the highest good’ accelerates the resolution of a perceived problem. This is facilitated by surrendering judgmentalism or the desire to control outcomes. Thus, one is ‘responsible for the effort and not the results’ (a dictum of twelve-step spiritual groups). Transcending the Levels of Consciousness. The Stairway to Enlightenment, Section V Spiritual Transformation, S. 310 [312], 2006

 

  • Miraculous phenomena are the spontaneous, nonvolitional emergence of a potentiality's emerging as an actuality as a consequence of karmic propensities and local conditions, such as the level of the contextual field set by the power of the prevailing level of consciousness. Discovery of the Presence of God. Devotional Nonduality, S. 98, 2007

 

  • The truly 'miraculous' is the emergence into actuality of potentiality as a consequence of an overall contextual field that includes karma, and it is therefore not 'caused' by nor can it be claimed by an individual personality. Discovery of the Presence of God. Devotional Nonduality, S. 201, 2007

 

  • Letting go of the illusory sovereignty of the ego allows that which is truly sovereign to intercede. Intervention occurs via the Holy Spirit. Through contrition, undoingness, surrender, and willingness we create a space for the miraculous. Enlightenment itself is by God's grace. You can only remove the impediments to higher consciousness but the final step is by God alone, by God only. Sedona Seminar Causality: The Ego's Foundation, 3 DVD set, January 2002

Quotes by D. Hawkins – Okkultismus

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

  • Traditional scripture, as well as highly evolved sages and teachers, warn "not to go there" [paranormal phenomenons] because the astral realms are not spiritual and represent other realms and dimensions for which the human mind is not equipped with protective discernment. Thus, it is perilous to invoke spirits and otherworldly entities. Occult practices have a sizeable and unseen downside. Truth vs. Falsehood.

Wunder sind das einzig Reale.

Das Wunder ist das einzig Reale,
es gibt nichts außer ihm.
Wenn aber alles Wunder ist, das heißt
durch und durch unbegreiflich,
so weiß ich nicht, warum man dieser
großen einen Unbegreiflichkeit,
die alles ist, nicht den Namen
Gott sollte geben dürfen.

Quotes by various other sources

In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Acts 2, 17-21 (NT)

  • About three months later a friend said I should get tested, so I went and got the scans and so forth. I really felt good, so I was afraid of getting bad news. I remember the doctor at the clinic looking at the before and after scans, saying, "Well, there is nothing here now." I said, "Really, it must be a miracle." He said "No, these things happen; they are called spontaneous remission." He acted very unimpressed. But here was a miracle, and I was impressed, even if no one else was.

Conclusions

  • Let us assume that eighty percent of illnesses are either self-limited or not treatable by modern medicine. Ten percent are miraculously cured and nine percent are made worse. Thus, we wind up barely on the positive side of zero. Franz Ingelfinger (1910-1980) German-American physician, gastroenterologist, editor of the The New England Journal of Medicine, editorial, 1977

 

  • What is commonly called a "miracle" is actually an expression of the Law of Least Effort. Deepak Chopra, M.D. [Fallen LoC 195] (*1946) Indian physician, endocrinologist, public speaker, Harvard lecturer, self-help writer on mind-body medicine, source unknown
  • A miracle is a shift in perception. A Course in Miracles [ACIM] [LoC 550/600] source unknown, 1976, rev. 1996

 

  • A miracle rearranges the order of perception, and places the levels in their true perspective. This heals at all levels, because all sickness comes from confusing the levels. A Course in Miracles [ACIM] [LoC 550/600] source unknown, 1976, rev. 1996

 

  • A miracle is the love that sustains the universe. It's the shift in perception that removes the barriers or obstacles to our awareness of love's presence in our lives. William Thetford (1923-1988) US American psychologist, collaborator with Helen Schucman in writing and providing A Course in Miracles [ACIM] [LoC 550/600] source unknown, 1976, rev. 1996

  • Question: What does The Course in Miracles talk about magic?
    Answer: […] The ego's power is magic.
    There is a difference in magic and miracles.
    And in that sense magic is not a good thing. […] If you just want to make something happen, that's the way of magic. […]
    The The Course in Miracles says: If you just treat God like your errand boy and say: I want this, I want this, and I want this ...!, that's magic.
    The way of the miraculous is: Dear God, how can I serve you. It is a path of surrender. […]
    That goes back to [movies like] "What the Bleep!" and seeing it all through physics. If it doesn't involve humility and it doesn't involve surrender, it doesn't involve true power.
    Not to mind about magic, but it is not going to involve the miraculous. It is not going to really tear down the kinds of walls that are keeping darkness in place on the planet.

Magic vs. miracles

  • Magic is when you tell the universe how you want it to serve you.
    Miracles is when you ask how you can be of service to the universe.
    Marianne Williamson (*1952) US American spiritual teacher, political activist, visionary, lecturer, author, Facebook comment, 21. December 2012

 

  • The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed. Albert Einstein [LoC 499] (1879-1955) German-born US American theoretical physicist, developer of the theory of general relativity, Nobel laureate in physics, 1921

 

  • There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. Albert Einstein [LoC 499] (1879-1955) German-born US American theoretical physicist, developer of the theory of general relativity, Nobel laureate in physics, 1921

 

  • The miracles […] indicate that our growth as human beings is being assisted by a force other than our conscious will. M. Scott Peck [LoC 475] (1936-2005) US American psychiatrist, psychotherapist, author, The Road Less Traveled, S. 281, 1st edition 1978, Random House United Kingdom, 15. March 1990, Touchstone, 25th anniversary edition 4. February 2003

 

  • To study the meaning of man and of life — I am making significant progress here. I have faith in myself. Man is a mystery: if you spend your entire life trying to puzzle it out, then do not say that you have wasted your time. I occupy myself with this mystery, because I want to be a man. Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky [Work LoC 465] (1821-1881) Russian author, personal correspondence (1839), cited in: Konstantin Mochulski, translated by Michael A. Minihan, Dostoevsky. His Life and Work, S. 17, 1971

 

 

  • To my thinking, miracles are never a stumbling-block to the realist. It is not miracles that dispose realists to faith. The genuine realist, if he is an unbeliever, will always find strength and ability to disbelieve in the miraculous, and if he is confronted with a miracle as an irrefutable fact he would rather disbelieve his own senses than admit the fact. Even if he admits it, he admits it as a fact of nature till then unrecognized by him. Faith does not, in the realist, spring from the miracle but the miracle from faith. If the realist once believes, then he is bound by his very realism to admit the miraculous also. The Apostle Thomas said that he would not believe till he saw, but when he did see he said, "My Lord and my God!" Was it the miracle that forced him to believe? Most likely not, but he believed solely because he desired to believe and possibly he fully believed in his secret heart even when he said, "I do not believe till I see." Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky [Work LoC 465] (1821-1881) Russian writer of novels, short stories and essays, The Brothers Karamazov, book I, chapter 5 Elders, 1879

 

  • When man rejects miracle he rejects God too; for man seeks not so much God as the miraculous. And as man cannot bear to be without the miraculous, he will create new miracles of his own for himself, and will worship deeds of sorcery and witchcraft, though he might be a hundred times over a rebel, heretic and infidel. Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky [Work LoC 465] (1821-1881) Russian author, The Brothers Karamazov, book V, chapter 5 The Grand Inquisitor, 1879

 


"Tobias restores his father's sight", 1555
Jan Sanders van Hemessen (1500-1579) Flemish painter
  • 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. Thich Nhat Hanh [LoC 460] (*1926) Vietnamese France based Buddhist monk, peace activist, teacher, poet, author

 

  • Miracle is simply the wonder of the unique that points us back to the wonder of everyday. Maurice Friedman, Ph.D., US American professor of religion, philosophy and literature, Temple University, Philadelphia (1967-1973)

Insights from Drunk with Wonder

  • You can't do life wrong, only with more or less suffering.
    Discernment is learning to listen to and trust your natural knowing.
    Ecstatic states of bliss are as adrenaline-fueled as the darkest scream of terror.
    Violence is a choice masquerading as a necessity.
    All growth requires is that you step out of what's comfortable and try something new.
    Life is the ultimate gift of love.
