"Food for thought & motivation for self edification and enlightenment"

  Stochastic Probability Theory - Pregnant Deer Scenario

by Lynk Paul Team Tracker Member

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 that same moment, dark clouds gather around that area and a bolt of lightningng starts a forest fire. Turning left she sees a hunter who is aiming an arrow at her from a distance. As she tries to move towards the 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?
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
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) is as follows;
In a spur of the MOMENT …a lightning bolt strikes (it is already 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 make us clueless. Let us not decide anything in a hurry. Let’s think of ourselves as the pregnant deer with the ultimate happy ending (a successful birthing). Anything can happen in a MOMENT in this life.
If you are religious, superstitious, atheist, agnostic… or whatever… you can attribute this MOMENT as divine intervention, faith, sudden luck, chance (serendipity), coincidence… or a simple ‘don’t know’. We all feel the same. 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…. because LIFE IS PRECIOUS.
Hence, whether you are deer or a human, keep that faith and hope within you always.
“A moment of choice is a moment of truth. It's the testing point of our character and competence”.
- Stephen R. Covey
