Pondering the existence of miracles

Theoriginallorettabrownshow 600x315

Throughout history, humans have always had extraordinary experiences we often called miracles—events that fill us with wonder and bafflement. The word miracle itself is rooted in the Sanskrit syllable smi, from which we get the English word smile. So, we might say that a miracle refers to a smile induced by certain sensations of awe, beauty, and wonder.

Join your host, Loretta Brown, as she interviews Dr. Michael Grosso about miracles. Her program, The Original Loretta Brown Show, airs Thursday, August 13th at 8 a.m. (repeats Monday, August 17th at 6 a.m.)

Dr. Michael Grosso’s both readable and comprehensible book, Smile of the Universe, scans a range of evidence for the reality of phenomena we often perceive as healings, levitation, bilocation, materialization, dematerialization, and much more. The reader will almost certainly come to agree with the author’s conclusion that miracles are facts of the natural world that point to something supernatural! An account of reported miraculous phenomena, this book takes us beyond conventional religion and science to explore the outer reaches of human potential. Grounded in both true stories and matters of fact, Dr. Grosso argues for the reality of a great “Mind” and for the human ability to communicate with that Mind. In an age of disbelief, it presents a fact-based template for experimental spirituality and makes the case that every one of us, rightly understood, is a “smile of the universe.”
