Be the Miracle – Bruce Almighty!

Posted on Posted in Dialogues


Parting your soup is not a miracle, Bruce. It’s a magic trick. A single mom who’s working two jobs and still finds time to take her kid to soccer practice, that’s a miracle. A teenager who says “no” to drugs and “yes” to an education, that’s a miracle. People want me to do everything for them. But what they don’t realize is *they* have the power. You want to see a miracle, son? Be the miracle.

It’s a beautiful scene where Bruce comes seeks god’s help through his troubles and the dialogues resonates at so many levels. For me it would bring in a lot of thoughts

  • It is always very easy to put the responsibility on someone/something else, the moment we own it up, things appear a lot more simpler and easier. The moment we take ownership the focus is more at solution and less on the blame game!
  • It is easy for us to run to someone when there is a problem seeking for help but the moment of change is always when it starts from within
  • We all are sufficiently empowered to solve our problems, no matter how challenging or how minuscule they are. Every problem is nothing but a call for action, for a change to happen, the moment we address it, a solution naturally forms around it.
  • The moment for solution is not tomorrow, not an hour later, the power of now resonates a lot longer than thoughts!

Well thoughts are always aplenty, for now, let me try and limit myself to 5 🙂

    1. True Harsha, I agree it’s a beautiful movie. So many subtle ideas being delivered in such a simple fashion and Morgan Freeman in the role of god, couldn’t have asked for anything better

We would love to hear your point of view
