“To see is to believe,” is the most common principle that the world has usually raised, especially when the subject is argued to be facts or fiction. Hence, the said phrase is often used to define and measure the differences between reality and illusion. Of course, one has to show the objective evidences to prove the existence of a thing and convince anyone about its claimed truth. Without showing its material evidences which should be visible to the eyes of men, one has to strain his tongue to the fullest just to convince the very few among the thousands who never believe.
True, it’s a normal reaction for a person to doubt and won’t even believe on the things he cannot see. Life is real, indeed and thus, we often perceive things on the way we see and touch. The images that form from our sight are stored in our minds and produce an impression. Like a computer, we process, scan and evaluate a certain thing in a different angles which form part of our perspective. Our belief and confidence upon a thing or person has started from the very product of our naked eyes. Thus, the premise, “we believe on what we see” concurs to the common dogma of life on “living and believing by sight.”
But how about a miracle? Do you believe in a miracle?
Miracle is oftentimes perceived to be beyond physical reality and possibility. We are amazed with wonder when something we thought that is impossible to happen- really happens! It’s a ‘shock and awe’ to witness an unbelievable feat, somewhat like an extra-ordinary thing that we view from our sight. Words like, “amazing!” “wow!” “great!” “awesome!” and “can’t believe it!” are among the familiar reactions we heard from those who witness a miracle.
Seeing a miracle is like watching a magic show. Like acim a miracle, you can see things in a magic beyond what is real. Others believe in magic, but some consider it as a mere tricks and sleight of hands. But what is their common feature is that -we see something that extremely amused us. Then we’re left hanging with a question, “is it true?!”
But what many have failed to know is that –there are really things that exist in this world which are beyond our sight.. and this is the truth. It’s the truth which is seemingly beyond reality. The existence of the things itself, like the natures of life, are far from possibility. Life, itself is a miracle. My existence, your existence, our existence and every nature we see in this world are proof that there are ‘miracles’ around us.
But what is the greatest miracle of all time?
Indeed, life itself is a wonder. The conception and the birth of a child is already a miracle. The planets and the solar system in space are magnificent creations that one may watch in awe. And when one sees a lame or a paralyzed one suddenly, stands and walks normally – it’s a miracle! A water turns into a wine and a sick person,with an incurable disease who gets healed is another miracle! It’s amazing.. but if one witnesses a seemingly magical feat or event, it surely left him in disbelief.
