Pregnant Deer Scenario - What Can The Pregnant Deer Do ….As She Is Already Under Labor Pain ?

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 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 ?

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:
In 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.

Moral Of The Story: 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. Anything Can Happen In A MOMENT In This Life. You Can Attribute This MOMENT As Divine Intervention Or Sudden Luck. But, Whatever One May Call It, I Would See The Priority Of The Deer In That Given Moment Was To Giving Birth To A Baby…. .

Note : Whether You Are Deer Or A Human, Keep That Faith Within You Always :)>-


  • woow nice
  • no doubt this story is motivating,,, but captain jacksparrow when someone trapped in situation worse than this ,, at that MOMENT its very difficult to focus or even think of giving "birth". (:|
    Thunderstorm died last month. and a pret has been born.
  • May be this was one of the best explanation to the theory of 'Afterdeath' and the concept of 'GOD' I have come across:

    Something interesting: regarding those who believe and those who don't believe in God ! Very interesting. It stimulates our lateral thinking :
    This lovely parable is from "Your Sacred Self" by Dr. Wayne Dyer.
    In a mother’s womb were two babies. One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?”The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”
    “Nonsense” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?”
    The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we will have other senses that we can’t understand now.”
    The first replied, “That is absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with our mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we need. But the umbilical cord is so short. Life after delivery is to be logically excluded.”
    The second insisted, “Well I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here. Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.”
    The first replied, “Nonsense. And moreover if there is life, then why has no one has ever come back from there? Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery there is nothing but darkness and silence and oblivion. It takes us nowhere.”
    “Well, I don’t know,” said the second, “but certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.”
    The first replied “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is She now?”
    The second said, “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are of Her. It is in Her that we live. Without Her this world would not and could not exist.”
    Said the first: “Well I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t exist.”
    To which the second replied, “Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus and listen, you can perceive Her presence, and you can hear Her loving voice, calling down from above.”
