What kind of a year has it been for us? All hailing from different corners of the country and the world, each of us has had our share of trials and tribulations, welcome surprises and unnecessary shocks – such is life and none can escape it even though our experiences vary in degrees from that of our neighbour. But we all know that it is only by clinging to that faith in a higher Intelligence that no matter what comes our way, we are willing to accept and overcome. At times, we may falter, but it is only natural for toddlers to stumble once they begin to walk. A second later, a helping hand comes along, lifts us up, and urges us to take the next step. That is the beauty of all life.
Many of us are in the habit of praying to the Divine for this or that. We pray out of necessity. We pray out of gratitude. We pray when we just want to have a chat. Our prayers carry all that we are and will be. And we send them with conviction that they will be heard and fulfilled.
But what of the Lord? Are we ready to address and fulfil His prayers? That is what we must introspect at the end of this year for that is what may make us take that next step, more confidently, more sure
of our goal, more in tune with the All-Life.
