Mother’s Day is upon us. A dear friend sent me this short story to give me a reality check and to drive home the Power of Creation and mothers in all walks of life. Often, while traveling on the road of existence we forget to trust in the Universe and it’s incredible Laws of Life. These laws are magnified by the love of mothers concerning the gift of life. I am sharing this story with you to remind all mothers that you are never alone, even in your most dangerous dark hour. The universe is watching. It will guard you….
In a forest, a pregnant deer is about to give birth to a baby.
It remembers a remote grass field near a river and slowly goes there thinking it will be safe while giving birth.
As she moves slowly, she gets her first labor pain.
At the same moment, dark clouds gather around that area and a lightning strike starts a flash forest fire.
Turning left, she sees a hunter who is aiming an arrow from a distance.
As she tries to move toward the right, she spots a hungry lion approaching her.
Enter—the STOCHASTIC PROBABILITY THEORY: (pronunciation: /stoʊˈkæstɪk/-
(a random process of random variables used to represent the evolution of some random system. It is the probabilistic counterpart to a deterministic process. Rather than having only one way, there are infinitely many directions in which the process may evolve.)
What can the pregnant deer do? She is already having labor pains and surrounded by danger.
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?
Can the deer run to the left? No, the hunter’s arrow is pointing at her.
Can she run to the right? No, the hungry male lion is approaching her.
Can she move up to higher ground? No, there the forest is on fire.
Can she move down the meadow? No, that is where the fierce river is.
She does nothing.
She just focuses on giving birth to a new LIFE..
The sequence of events that happens in that fraction of a second (moment) are as follows:
In a spur of MOMENT, a lightning strikes, and blinds the eyes of the hunter!
At that MOMENT, he releases the arrow which misses and zips past the deer!
At that MOMENT, the arrow hits and injures the lion!
At that MOMENT, it starts to rain heavily which puts out the forest fire!
At that next MOMENT, the deer gives birth to a healthy fawn!
What does this mean? Our life is also filled with MOMENTS of CHOICE. when we all have to deal with negative thoughts and dangers from all sides.
Some thoughts are so powerful they overcome us, and make us clueless. We become frozen in place. They make us feel like a victims of circumstance with no hope of help.
But, anything can happen in a MOMENT in this life.
If you are religious, superstitious, atheist or agnostic, you can attribute this MOMENT to Divine Intervention, faith, sudden luck, serendipity, coincidence, karma, or a simple, “I just don’t know!”
The priority of the deer, in that given moment, was simply giving birth to a baby, because LIFE IS PRECIOUS! And, LIFE MUST GO ON!
In the future, may you always be inspired to have a focused positive insight, oblivious of all imaginary or negative probabilities.
“LIFE is flowing like a river with unexpected turns that my be good , or bad. Learn to enjoy each turn because, these Turns…Never RE-TURN.”
Let us take a second to ponder the lesson of the Doe and her fawn, apply it to our life. The stochastic process (pronunciation: /stoʊˈkæstɪk/), is the random process of a collection of random variables that represents the evolution of some other random value, or system, over time. In the case of our story, the doe, the hunter, the fire, the lion and labor pains.
The key work here is RANDOM. Stochaastic is the probabilistic counterpart to DETERMINED. Instead of describing a process which can only evolve in one way (as in the case of the story, CERTAIN DEATH at every turn) in a stochastic or random process there are several (often infinitely many) directions in which the process may evolve.
This is another way of saying, trust in the process of the Universe. We are not victims of circumstance, even when we feel our situation is out of our control. There is a Higher Power involved, with infatesimal solutions. Believe and watch for the validation.
May this Mother’s Day be one of the best days of your life. Enjoy the ebb and flow of love and family, no matter what dangers or dark memories may lurk around every corner. There are many solutions to all you life and family challenges at your fingertips. Embrace them when they present themselves. Take the time to give thanks to your Higher Power for your children and family. And trust that the Universe and your Guardian Angels are watching over you as you celebrate this special time because this Mother’s Day will never RE-TURN.
