"There can be Miracles....when you believe"
So goes the song by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey in 'The Prince of Egypt'.

What does thou thinkest, as a Buddhist?  :meditating: 

Can't remember where I read it or the exact quote but His Holiness Dalai Lama said something like miracles are just a shorthand for ignorance.

Best wishes

You've never seen a miricle?

There are Miricles...you just need to be able to discern them. They are all around you every day. As a Buddhist you need to clarify your mind, develop quietness in your heart, live in simplicity and without attachment to the "dust" of the world. When you do that you can understand the miricles that are all around. They are there for you to see if you wish.

Here's a poem by Vietnamese Zen Master
MAN GIAC (LY TRUONG)
(1052-1096)

Telling Everyone That One Is Falling Ill

When spring passes, a hundred flowers fall.
When spring arrives, a hundred flowers bloom.
The world rushes past our eyes.
Time scatters its dust over our heads.
(Yet) Don’t say when spring passes, all flowers fade.
Only last night, in the courtyard, an apricot (tree) bloomed

If you would learn to cultivate that attitude...you would see miricles, wouldn't you?
