Hi Compiler,

Along these lines, we can be sure we are defining the words the same. 
Miracle in the context taken means something outside of nature's 
laws, something done by some divine intervention. But in theosophy we 
learn that there is nothing outside of the laws of nature, that the 
laws of nature define the emanations of divinity. It comes down (like 
just about everything else) to consciousness, in this case, how much 
of it we have. To the extent that we understand the laws of nature, 
we can use them to produce effects which, to a person with less 
understanding, would seem like effects outside the law. The 
difference is that we understand and the other person does not. If we 
did not know about fire, and someone showed up who struck a match and 
lit a fire, we might think that person was acting ourside the laws of 
nature. Actually, he would be acting outside our limited perception 
of the laws of nature, but fully within the scope of those laws
