Luck is something that occurs to us by chance not necessarily something we do. It just happens, it is bestowed upon us for no apparent reason, just like the grace of God.
The night before I left on my journey to India I played cards with some friends. One of them happened to ask the question “Do you feel lucky? ” Of course he meant will the cards be in my favor, but that simple question stuck in my head, like a song loop playing over and over. I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
It became my meditation for the evening and I began to contemplate WHAT is it exactly that makes me feel soooo lucky. What makes me answer YES! What, By the grace of God and through no doing of my own, is responsible for the success of a life well lived?
It is the simple gift of friendship. I’ve received so many calls, texts, emails this week from all of you wishing me well and I am so touched by your caring and loving kindness.
Friendship is a Divine gift to one another, an expression of our faith in the goodness of our human nature. It asks nothing and gives everything. It loves unconditionally and encourages and supports us all on our life’s journey.
Do you feel lucky?
