The superstitious me

If I feel any of my loved ones are in some problem and  I cannot do anything about it then my heart begins to hope and pray for something miraculous to help me out. Its then that my logical mind take a back seat and forces me on the path that  I normally consider as superstitious and mindless. I guess the mind is kind of divided into two parts logical and emotional. And the fear of losing something forces the emotional half to rule. My thinking is that if some of my superstitious and emotional acts are not harmful and bothersome to others, there is no problem in doing them. This is the reason why I sometimes do many things that makes my mother happier.
Although I would not encourage anybody to be superstitious and do things that make no sense.And definitely not motivated by greed or gain.

Dear Sneha,
Good Evening!
One can follow whatever gives comfort and peace of mind.Why to give justifications?
Superstitions need not be labelled the same by another.
Enjoy and celebrate!It's raining!
Sasneham,

So long as the superstitious acts do not hinder the work,it is acceptable.If someone stops or puts off something on the ground of a cat crossing or some bad omen,i would consider it as undesirable.

A lot of us do that, don't we?
I mean, who would want to risk something ill happening just because we didn't understand the logic behind some silly little superstition!
