This Day's Blurb.

Providential Direction.

(Sign pointing to Mecca)
Spotted, on a hotel room ceiling in Malaysia.

*No offense intended. I find the concept quite beautiful. Millions of men and women all over the world, united by the same faith, facing the same direction, doing exactly the same thing, at exactly the same point in time. Poetic, in so many ways.

Well the signs are there on all the airports in the arab world. I guess thats the way of life there.

This reminds me of an anectodal story my grand-dad once told me.

'An old fakir is sleeping outside a temple with his feet pointing in the direction of the temple idol. The priest is enraged considering it a sign of disrespect to the temple deity and scolds the fakir for pointing his feet towards the holy shrine. The fakir only raises his head and replies, "All right, sir, I shall lie here. Wud you please point my feet in a direction where there is no God?" The priest doesnt know what to say to that.'

@AS: Religion as a way of life.

One wishes for a purpose that absorbing in life.

@TUIB: That's a wonderful story. I have to thank you for sharing it. :)
