What is a miracle?

In traditional usage, the term "miracle" refers to a divine healing of the physical world or the body, in which the normal physical laws are momentarily suspended. In Course usage, the term "miracle" refers to a divine healing of human perception, in which the "laws" that normally govern ego-based thinking are momentarily suspended. This healing shifts our perception from the view that others are attackers who deserve condemnation to the view that others are holy children of God who deserve love. This healing is of the mind, but can also lead to healing of the physical world and the body. The primary definition of "miracle" in the Course is the extension of healed perception from one mind to another.
