“According to Chinese legend, the gods tie an invisible string around each of us at the ankle. The other end of this string is tied to those we are destined to know. We might call it the red string of fate. The red thread of destiny. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but it will never break. Not in this life, into the next life, nor into all the past or future.
We look at the red thread on our ankle and see who we are attached to. Sometimes, if you have come to a place in your life, you will laugh when you do this: everyone in your house may be attached to each other at the ankle by this red thread, regardless of whether one is in the bathroom, one in the kitchen, one working in the yard.
And yet, there’s also those we meet so briefly, we forget that we may have red strings, cords, and threads with them too. These connections are awaiting us when we least expect them. They are a kind of remembrance of karma, these red threads; a karma of helping, when we need it most.”
Sara Wiseman, in “Living a Life of Gratitude”
