“The Miracle” – Queen

Every drop of rain that falls in Sahara Desert says it all
It’s a miracle
All God’s creations great and small
The Golden Gate and the Taj Mahal
That’s a miracle
Test tube babies being born
Mothers, fathers dead and gone
It’s a miracle.
We’re having a miracle on earth
Mother nature does it all for us
The wonders of this world go on
The hanging Gardens of Babylon
Captain Cook and Cain and Abel
Jimi Hendrix to the Tower of Babel
It’s a miracle it’s a miracle it’s a miracle
It’s a miracle.
The one thing we’re all waiting for is peace on earth – an end
to war
It’s a miracle we need – the miracle
The miracle we’re all waiting for today
If every leaf on every tree could tell a story that would be a
miracle
If every child on every street had clothes to wear and food to
eat
That’s a miracle
If all God’s people could be free to live in perfect harmony
It’s a miracle
We’re having a miracle on earth
Mother nature does it all for us
Open hearts and surgery
(wonders of this world go on)
Sunday mornings with a cup of tea
Super powers always fighting
But Mona Lisa just keeps on smiling
It’s a miracle it’s a miracle it’s a miracle(wonders of this world go on)
It’s a miracle it’s a miracle it’s a miracle
It’s a miracleThe one thing (the one thing) we’re all waiting for (we’re all
waiting for)
Is peace on earth (peace on earth) and an end to war (an end
to war)
It’s a miracle we need – the miracle
The miracle peace on earth and end to war today

That time will come one day you’ll see when we can all be
friends
That time will come one day you’ll see when we can all be
friends
That time will come one day you’ll see when we can all be
friends
That time will come one day you’ll see when we can all be
friends.

The heralding in of the New Year, throughout the world, is one that is celebrated with great fervour, festivity and enthusiasm. It is amazing but when midnight strikes the ushering in of New Year’s Day, every single person, anywhere around the globe, forget their petty differences, their bitter enmity, their unprecedented hatred, their uncalled-for racist feelings and disdain for their own fellow-beings. Every single person’s heart is miraculously filled with feelings of great magnanimity, generosity, liberal-mindedness and the overall impression is one of immense joy, unity, peace, brotherhood and goodwill among one and all. People are of the impression that they are starting afresh; with new hopes, new dreams and new aspirations for a better tomorrow.
The New Year signals a brand-new chapter in the Book of Life and while this tends to be true, the essence of the Book of our Lives does not really change at all. It is astonishing and incredible how not one of us really seems to acknowledge this universal truth and fact. The reality is that the story of daily lives just continues from where it left off. Life goes on in much the same vein and even though you may not be too keen to hear this at the start of this New Year, the fact is that we just continue with the self-same problems and sorrows as earlier on – those of extreme poverty; a terrific population explosion; rampant hunger and starvation especially in the Third World countries; illiteracy in the millions; ever-increasing unemployment, souring inflation; an alarming amount of racial hatred and racial discrimination ever on the increase; horrific crimes against humanity and even open combat and a full-fledged war between enemy countries. More and more alarming divisions and discrimination are further created in this way – BY US  FALLIBLE MORTALS – BY OUR VERY OWN mistakes, narrow-mindedness, petty-mindedness, hatred, spite, malice, selfishness, callousness and indifference towards our own kind.
People tend to make a lot of new and fruitful resolutions in any given New Year – resolutions that they might take heed of or not adhere to at all.  So why make them in the first place? Nothing ever really changes at all – it is a fallacy to believe so.The world continues living in much the same way – the chapter in our lives may very well be new but the contents of the Tale in the Book of Life just pick up from wherever it left off and continue along the self-same lines. LIFE GOES ON – NOTHING CHANGES.
Now I could very well write a beautifully worded blog for you and wish each one of you every aspect of Goodness and benevolence in the world. I could wish for you that every possible virtue touches your lives with warmth; that all the problems of the past be blown away forever, from all our lives. It is like wishing for an idealistic world – for a ‘Utopia’ that is far from the case in all reality. It is nothing short of LIVING IN A FOOL’S PARADISE. I could use all the possible high-flown words of praise to wish you well – which of course I certainly do.
I have not done so specifically because all the vocabulary that I wanted to use seemed to me to be just words – empty and hollow words – that’s all. What is truly the sense of using words of praise when they are only words, at the end of the day – words without any real meaning or without any real significance; words that lack any real purpose, determination and destination; words that have no realistic goal or aim?
If we do not care take the time out to implement the essence of benevolence and goodness of these words of praise and good wishes, what is the reason to utter them at all?
How do you expect the Supreme Being to help us, at all, if we can not or will not help ourselves first? MAN IS HIS OWN WORST ENEMY.IT IS UNDENIABLE. WE PREY ON, ABUSE, MISTREAT , ASSAULT AND ATTACK OUR OWN KIND – EITHER WITH OUR WORDS OR WITH OUR ACTIONS OR WITH BOTH PUT TOGETHER.
What is the sense of expressing so many good wishes and thoughts to others when there is no real, firm and worth-while intention to improve our ways and become better human beings? It seems to be quite, quite senseless and fruitless, that’s what! A total waste of precious time and energy! There is just NO foresight NOR any forethought in this matter, that’s what is essentially so wrong!
Whether you want to accept this incontrovertible fact or not, the undeniable truth is that it is that NOTHING SHORT OF A MIRACLE WILL SAVE OUR SOULS- if at all – a Miracle that you should assume is not going to fall like “manna” in a glittering and glowing shower from the Higher Realms, as a gift from God on all mortals. Please don’t be presumptuous enough to presume that is your rightful-due; it is not well-deserved; it is not the nature of your birth-right – unless you work towards actively achieving it .
WE REALLY DO NEED A MIRACLE TO SAVE US FROM OURSELVES – NEVER FOOL YOURSELF INTO THINKING AND BELIEVING OTHERWISE! NOT UNLESS WE DO IT FIRST.
About the beautiful song by “Queen” that is mentioned above, here are some details that might interest you, about it.
Queen are a British rock band formed in London in 1971, originally consisting of the late Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano), Brian May (guitar, vocals), John Deacon (bass guitar), and Roger Taylor (drums, vocals). They were influenced initially by progressive rock but the band gradually ventured into more conventional and radio-friendly works, incorporating more diverse and innovative styles in their music. This band is world-renowned for phenomenal hits such as, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Radio Ga-Ga,” “We Will Rock You, “We Are the Champions,” “Living on My Own” and “The Show Must Go On.” By the early 1980s, Queen were one of the biggest stadium rock bands in the world, and their performance at 1985’s Live Aid is regarded as one of the greatest in rock history. In 1991, Mercury died of bronchopneumonia, a complication of AIDS, and Deacon retired in 1997. Since that time, May and Taylor have infrequently performed together including a collaboration with Paul Rodgers under the name Queen + Paul Rodgers which ended in May 2009. The band, “Queen” has released a total of 18 number one albums, 18 number one singles, and 10 number one DVDs. Estimates of their album sales generally range from 150 million to 300 million albums, making them one of the world’s best-selling music artists. They received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the British Phonographic Industry in 1990, and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.
The Miracle” is the fifth and last single from Queen‘s 1989 album of the same name. It was composed by the entire band, though Freddie Mercury and John Deacon were the main driving forces. It was released as a single in late November 1989, some six months after the album. The song describes several of “God’s creations, great and small”, such as great buildings like the Taj Mahal and the Tower of Babel, all described as “miracles” in the song. The song also references such well-known figures as Captain CookCain and Abel, and Jimi Hendrix.
Whatever the tragic reality of our times might be –  2013 is still very much a brand-new year for all of us on this planet. It will never be too late for all of us to make a concerted and united effort to make a brand-new start in Life. It is never too late for New Beginnings.
Let me take this opportunity to wish my appreciative audience and all my faithful readers and loyal followers from all over the globe well. I wish the Very Best for You All, Always. May Faith, Hope, Love, Joy, Good Health, Success and Prosperity light up all your lives with the very essence of its warmth and goodness and most importantly, I wish that Peace of Mind be yours for the taking.
MAY I BE ALLOWED TO STATE THAT LIP-SERVICE IS NOT ENOUGH IN THIS MATTER. LEARN TO ACTIVELY PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH.
PEOPLE SEEM TO HAVE FORGOTTEN THE UNIVERSAL, UNPARALLELED TRUTH THAT “ONE GOOD DEED COUNTS FOR SO MUCH MORE THAN EVEN TEN GOOD INTENTIONS PUT TOGETHER.” START LIVING UP TO YOUR NEW HOPES AND NEW RESOLUTIONS – make them YOUR reality. WE ALL NEED TO ACTIVELY AND CONSCIOUSLY MAKE AN EFFORT TO IMPROVE OURSELVES AND BECOME BETTER PEOPLE IN THE FUTURE. POSITIVE, CONCRETE AND FRUITFUL ACTION, CONSCIOUSLY MADE, IS SO ESSENTIAL HERE!
WE NEED TO FORGET OUR DIFFERENCES AND WE NEED TO PUT UP A UNITED FRONT TO THE WORLD AT LARGE. THERE IS GREAT STRENGTH IN NUMBERS AND IT PROMOTES A FEELING OF WELL-BEING, PEACE, HARMONY AND BROTHERHOOD OF HUMANITY, AS A WHOLE – let us actively work towards this goal.
Whether you choose to believe it or not, the truth is that MOST OF OUR GRAVE PROBLEMS TODAY STEM FROM THE FACT THAT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WORLDWIDE ARE SELF-CENTERED AND SELF-ABSORBED. SELFISHNESS IS THE ROOT CAUSE OF SO MUCH EVIL, MISUNDERSTANDINGS AND ILL-FEELING ON THIS EARTH, IN CONTEMPORARY TIMES.
CAN’T WE GO BEYOND OURSELVES FOR ONCE IN OUR LIVES? IS IT REALLY SO VERY DIFFICULT? DO YOU HONESTLY BELIEVE THAT EVERYTHING IN LIFE IS ONLY ABOUT YOU AND WHAT YOU DESIRE? DON’T THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU MATTER AT ALL? IS IT ASKING TOO MUCH TO MAKE YOU REALIZE THAT THERE IS LIFE AND A WORLD OUT THERE, BEYOND THE END OF YOUR NOSE? It is not something that will change overnight but surely everything in Life is not about YOU and YOU alone? 
RESOLVE TO BE A GOOD PERSON AND SPREAD THE WARMTH AND GOODNESS OF YOUR BENEVOLENCE FAR AND WIDE AND TO THE FARTHEST NOOKS AND CORNERS OF THIS WORLD. TEACH OTHERS TO TREAD THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW PATH OF RIGHTEOUSNESS TOO. BE AN EXAMPLE OF BENEVOLENCE AND GOODNESS TO THE WORLD – PLEASE REALIZE THAT IT’S ALRIGHT IF IT IS NOT ALL ABOUT YOU AND WHAT YOU WANT. PLEASE LEARN TO BE KIND AND SELFLESS. THAT IS THE MIRACLE THAT WE NEED TO ARDENTLY HOPE AND WISH FOR.
“GOD HELPS THOSE WHO HELP THEMSELVES”  He’ll help us along the way but we do need to start NOW to HELPING OURSELVES FIRST.
So, let’s NOT pray for a Miracle to Save Our Souls – let us actively choose to make this miracle OUR reality. Let us not choose to forget that there are 365 days to any given year – it is NOT only New’s Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day that count – IT IS EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THE YEAR AND EACH DAY OF YOUR LIFE THAT COUNTS AND MATTERS IN THE END.
JOY TO THE WORLD FOR A BETTER, HAPPIER, HEALTHIER AND UNIFIED TOMORROW, that’s all I can truly say!
P.S. We ought to take this opportunity to also thank the Mayans, most sincerely, for their erroneous prediction concerning the End of the World in 2012.
It is nothing short of a Miracle that has saved us all in this case and that IS a fact. 
Let us wish the Mayans a Very Happy New Year – for whatever it’s worth!
