Megha Bajaj shares her conviction, born of experience, that miracles can be created through effort coupled with faith
I don’t know why I have had a fascination for miracles right from the time I was a child. Growing up in a joint family, we constantly had guests from all over the world, in all shapes and sizes, ages and cultures, living in our house.
I used to love the post-dinner time when we would sit with guests and talk about this and that. Even as a child, one of my first questions to people would be, “Have you ever experienced a miracle? Have you ever seen something out of the ordinary?” And I would delight in their stories. Almost everyone had some story to tell.
Among these, one of my favourites is the one my dad tells me. It was early days for computers in India, and dad was among the first few engineers to have a very complex machine at his workspace. He had taken up some big orders based on this computer. However, there seemed to be some error which could only be cracked by a missing code. Dad worked day and night to set the mistake right but he just couldn’t. It was the last evening for his assignment, and if he didn’t crack the code he would undergo a huge monetary loss as well as embarrassment. With a feeling of “I won’t let go,” he walked outside his office and bought himself a sukha bhel (Indian snack) which was wrapped in paper. He sat beside his computer, munching on the bhel. When he was done, he was about to crumple the paper and throw it in the bin, when his eye caught something. The bhelwala (vendor) had used paper from some engineering book, and that exact page contained the code that dad was seeking!
Somehow, whenever he used to tell me this incident, his eyes would light up, and I would feel very excited. Later, as I grew into a seeker, my spiritual Master, Mahatria, explained a very simple formula for creating miracles in one’s life: My intelligent effort + energy of my source of faith + my faith in that energy = Miracles are possible.
I could clearly understand how this formula had worked for him. Dad had given his best to crack the code. He hadn’t waited for something to happen. Dad had faith that since he had done his best, the Higher Intelligence would do the rest. His faith made the Higher Intelligence work for him, and that’s how the entire formula got completed.
Whenever something isn’t going the way we want it, we need to look at the formula given above, and we will realise one of the above may be missing. Either the effort is not there or the faith is not there. With both present, life becomes a beautiful minefield of miracles, with one springing up every now and then.
I have experienced a lot of miracles in my life. Some small and some that altered life as I knew it, forever. In each case, it was a superb amalgamation of having complete faith and putting in all my efforts. Instead of praying for miracles, it is my humble belief that each of us can attract miracles.
The Creator created us to create. Let’s use this magic bestowed upon us, wisely and compassionately.
