Thaumatology – The Study of miracles

Most recorded miracles appear to occur within the Catholic and Indian faiths. One observation is that both Catholic and Indian belief systems have a, perhaps softer, more loving, and often less-punitive female deity.  Female deities birth more miracles via love.

Nature is often regarded as a basis for verifying the miraculous, most often citing birth.

A perquisite commonality between miracles would necessarily be accord with the Universal Laws that govern all things everywhere:

1. We are One

2. Love is Law; Law is Love

3. Cause & Effect (aka ‘Attraction’)  Like attracts like & Like Begets Like; As ye sow, so shall ye reap; As a man thinketh in the heart, so is he.

4. Karma (Cause & Effect that spans lifetimes) and Grace (Karma off for good behavior)

Awe is a commonality too but is it a desirable prerequisite rather than just an after affect?

“Hence, in the fruits of that – as is given oft, as the fruits of the spirit – does man become aware of the infinite penetrating, or inter-penetrating the activities of all forces of matter, or that which is a manifestation of the realm of the infinite into the finite – and the finite becomes conscious of same. As to the application of these as truths, then: It may be said that, as the man makes in self – through the ability given for man in his activity in a material plane – the will one with the laws of creative influence, we begin with: “Like begets like – As he sows, so shall he reap – As the man thinketh in the heart, so is he.” These are all but trite sayings to most of us, even the thinking man; but should the mind of an individual (the finite mind) turn within his own being for the law pertaining to these trite sayings, until the understanding arises, then there is the consciousness in the finite of the infinite moving upon and in the inner self. So does life in all its force begin in the earth. The moving of the infinite upon the (polar) negative force of the finite in the material, or to become a manifested force.” – Edgar Cayce (262-52)

Also, according to Edgar Cayce, the performance of miracles requires certainty, courage, love of all, and complete selflessness in God’s purpose.

Note: Catholic mirabilia isn’t always devoid of punitive measures as is evidenced by the impending Garabandal prophecy
