Dear ones, a miracle is a learning device which lessens the need for time. It establishes an out-of-pattern time interval not under the usual laws of time. In this sense it is timeless. A miracle is the only device immediately available to you for controlling time. A miracle allows you to compare God's creation with what you have made out of God's creation. This allows you to accept what is in accord with God's creation and reject as false what is out of accord. A miracle substitutes for learning which might otherwise have taken a thousand years.
