What is Blind Faith?

A lot of the buses in London, at least the ones I travel on, now have the Announcer technology that announces the destination and bus stops throughout the journey. I believe this is very useful for blind people or those who who are not familiar with the area.

On the bus I was on, the Announcer was announcing the right stops at the wrong time. The computer was obviously not programmed properly. The bus driver didn't seem to be paying much attention to correct it either. Maybe, she was aware of the error but didn't care.

It got me thinking. What if there was a blind passenger who trusted in the Announcer and when he heard his stop, he got off believing he was at the right stop when he should actually get off at the next one? He might lose his sense of direction; for a short while at least.

The other day I saw this woman walking her son to school and she asked me what the time was. As I don't wear a watch, I took out my mobile and told her. She said to her son that they had 15 minutes to get to school. I was amazed that she and her son were planning their journey based on the information I had given them. For all I know, my clock could have been fast, slow or even stopped.

The above examples got me thinking of blind faith. Trusting that the bus Announcer is announcing the right stops is blind faith. The woman who had asked me the time seemed to have blind faith in me.

Do I have blind faith?

I have faith in the Infinite Self in all whose nature is infallible and whose intention is always good. By "good" I mean It always wants what it is best for me.

Because of that conviction, I know I will never ask someone the time and be given the wrong answer. I will never ask someone for directions and be sent in the opposite direction. I will always be sent people and experiences that are good for me. When things don't seem to be going my way, I know that it's still working for the best.

There have been times when I haven't totally trusted and ended up going on a wild goose chase, but it has always worked out for good anyway.

Yes, I do have blind faith.

I have blind faith in the infallibility and infinite love of the Infinite Self in all.

All things work out for good.
