Renewal of Faith…

We have a saying…custom…belief…about the evil eye…how an excess of good/happiness must ward off the evil eye with certain prayers…and although most of us will pooh-pooh the idea, there are definitely times when it is frighteningly true…or so it certainly seems at the time…

Last week, after a glut of joyous bonhomie, an incident with a loved one, my son, had me thinking just this…as also remembering my mother who believed in this unequivocally, made no bones about it…and let everyone know…in case they thought otherwise…but then, they don’t make them like her anymore…

The manner in which he handled the whole incident…the calm…poise…practicality…understated acceptance…gave me wings of pride.. His attitude towards the incident set the tone for the rest of us…As Khalil Gibran so wisely said…Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you, as by the attitude you bring to life…not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens to you…this was done in quite an exemplary manner…

I do believe that, determined by your attitude, the Good Lord then sets the pace for the next set of incidents…action…in motion…and miraculously the whole incident was reversed in a manner that is hard to explain…quite unbelievable…but there it is…the test of renewal of faith, based on the acceptance of a greater plan…
