This week I’d like to share just a quick little Mexican miracle with you. For anyone who has been reading my weekly emails for a while, it’s no secret that one of my favorite foods is pizza, but I also love Mexican food. I particularly enjoy Chipotle Mexican Grill because the food is fresh and fast. As anyone who frequents this establishment knows, one of the questions they ask while preparing your meal is whether you would like mild, medium, or hot salsa. I don’t have a high tolerance for spicy food, so I always ask for mild. However, even the mild salsa is made with a lot of onions which have never been a friend to my stomach. I do my best to set the onions aside, but inevitably I eat some and my stomach is not happy.
Lately I have been ordering my meal without salsa to avoid upsetting my stomach, but I have missed the splash of red in my burrito bowl. The other day on my way to Chipotle I considered getting the meal to go and coming home to add my own chopped tomatoes. Instead, I took a chance and asked the nice woman behind the counter if it was possible for me to get diced tomatoes instead of salsa on top. Apparently this woman was very intuitive. She smiled and said, “It’s the onions, isn’t it?” When I replied “yes” she went back to the kitchen and fetched me a cup of diced tomatoes. Right then and there my perception shifted from fear of getting an upset stomach to love for this woman’s kindness. A Course in Miracles defines a miracle as any shift in perception from fear to love, so this was indeed a little Mexican miracle!
This may not seem like a big deal to you, but to me, it was a powerful reminder to ask for what I want without automatically assuming that it isn’t possible. The Universe has unlimited resources and ways to help us manifest our dreams, whether our current dream is to have a new job, a new relationship, or just a cup of diced tomatoes. As A Course in Miracles states in Miracle Principle Number 1:
There is no order of difficulty in miracles. One is not “harder” or “bigger” than another. They are all the same. All expressions of love are maximal.
