Calling for thoughts and prayers . . .
My Mom was in a bad car accident, and I don't want to miss any bases - so I'm asking anyone and everyone to say a little prayer, mantra, meditate or whatever you do, to try and help her out. While the exercise may prove to be one of futility, and the cosmos an unwelcome place for the transmission of focused positive energy, or human will and love too weak to surpass the limits of our own skulls, or even if the idea itself seems ludicrous and naive to you - she's in a lot of pain, and what could it hurt?:) I'm quite an atheist myself but maybe the transmission of these things comes more subtly. Maybe thinking about someone who's hurt and helpless turns into a kindness for a stranger, which is passed on and on to maybe somehow helping my Mom. Who knows? An infinite number of monkeys on an infinite number of typewriters will eventually write the complete works of Shakespeare - let that rattle around your head and then think something nice about someone who you dont know - it may set into motion something wonderful - it may be the first few lines of Shakespeare that turn the infinite impossibility into reality.
