People’s fear of black cats, shying away from broken mirrors and attributing dark and ominous signs to all kinds of events in our lives, such as Kyiv residents recently doing so in relation to huge flocks of crows that passed through its skies, have their historic folkloric origins.
However, we need to progress beyond assigning any special importance to such phenomena.
We can do so by replacing such signs with positive signs, such as the demonstration of positive attitudes to each other.
If we emphasize growing positive mutual attitudes and the achievement of “love your neighbor as yourself” in human society, then such a condition would cover everything else. Then, whether we walk past a black cat, a broken mirror or myriad other phenomena that we might be careful with, our attraction to achieving a strong positive human connection would cancel out any of those influences.
