In the outer world a miracle is something that fascinates the human in us. In the inner world a miracle is a common incident, an experience-reality. In the outer world each miracle creates tremendous confusion in the human mind. It fascinates the mind, but at the same time it detracts from the spiritual reality. But in the inner world there is nothing miraculous. It is only an incident, a happening, a necessity, so that the outer life can be awakened, perfected and fulfilled. Otherwise doubt, fear, frustration and impurity will attack the human in us. There is not a single day when I do not perform hundreds of miracles in the inner world, but when I remove undivine qualities in the outer world directly and immediately, then it becomes an astonishment, something fantastic, which may create problems. This is a secret.
