Choosing Love is the ultimate goal but it is not a very realistic goal when you are upset. Choosing a miracle is a the practical goal in any situation where you are feeling negative emotion.
When you choose a miracle you are choosing to look at your upset with your inner Guide or Teacher. The upset might still be there but there will be a shift.
You will know that you are upset because you want to be – not because anyone or anything made you that way. This awareness brings great relief because at least you know there is a way out – you have made a wrong choice when you are ready you can choose Love.
