It may sound insane, but you can trust most people blindly. Assume the best in people and you won’t be let down.
Trust is a muscle you can flex without fear of an injury.
I love my dentist.
He really knows his way around my imperfect mouth, the cavities, the fillings, he accepts me for whatever my mouth’s condition as long as I have a good smile on when I leave.
That’s exactly why I love my close friends. They have seen my cavities and survive the new ones because my smile matters to them more than my cavities. Just like their smile matters to me.
Some people who believe they do not lack anything, regarding their comfort and security of life, they cheat nobody.
And such a person is not necessarily religious.
We lack such people in the religious, political and social affairs of our lives.
At dawn today I saw a leaf fall off her tree. Before she could hit the ground, and hurt herself, feeble leaves of another small tree caught her securely in their grasp and refused to surrender her to the whims of destiny’s tempest winds. And it reminded me of my own falls, so many, and some friends and my family, books, movies, love for walking running, cycling etc my ambition & life goals held me as ably on my way down.
For many years I have remained imprisoned by some fears because of lack of knowledge and superstitions I believed in.
They had trapped me just like I trapped this lovely firefly in my tea cup today; I hope he/she can see his/her own light to find his/her freedom.
Even I am like this firefly, still imprisoned by some fears insecurities; I hope to see the ‘firefly’s light.’
