Consider this scenario:In
a remote forest, a pregnant deer is about to give birth to a baby. It
finds a remote grass field near by a river and slowly goes there
thinking it would be safe. As she moves slowly, she gets labor pain.
At the same moment, dark clouds gather around that area and lightning
starts a forest fire. Turning left she sees a hunter who is aiming
an arrow from a distance. As she tries to move towards right, she spots
a hungry lion approaching towards her.....
What can the pregnant deer do .as she is already under labor pain ?
What do you think will happen? Will the deer survive? Will it give birth to a fawn? Will the fawn survive? OR Will everything be burnt by the forest fire? That particular moment?
Can the deer go left? Hunter’s arrow is pointing! Can she go right? Hungry male lion approaching! Can she move up? Forest fire! Can she move down? Fierce River! Answer: She does nothing. She just focuses on giving birth to a new LIFE!
The sequence of events that happens at that fraction of a second (moment) are as follows:
a spur of MOMENT & a lightning strikes (already it is cloudy ) and
blinds the eyes of the Hunter. At that MOMENT, he releases the arrow
missing and zipping past the deer. At that MOMENT the arrow hits and
injures the lion badly. At that MOMENT, it starts to rain heavily and
puts out the forest fire. At that next MOMENT, the deer gives birth to
a healthy fawn.
In our life, it’s our MOMENT of CHOICE and we
all have to deal with such negative thoughts from all sides always.
Some thoughts are so powerful they overpower us and makes us clueless.
Let us not decide anything in a hurry. Let’s think of ourselves as the
pregnant deer with the ultimate happy ending.
happen in a MOMENT in this life. If you are Religious, Superstitious,
Atheist, Agnostic or whatever you can attribute, this MOMENT as Divine
Intervention OF, Faith, Sudden Luck, Chance (serendipity), or a Simple
We all feel the same. Whatever one may call it, I
would see the priority of the deer in that given moment was to giving
birth to a baby AS RIGHT, because LIFE IS PRECIOUS!!!
Hence, whether you are Deer or a Human, keep that Faith and Hope within...
