    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:
    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.
    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. 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.

    Why I shared the above scenario?

    I hear a lot of reasoning behind many things that you feel you should take a step towards but fear as many things can go wrong.

    For example, I had this question from patchyboy yesterday - why do you advocate claiming insurance without worrying much about NCB, getting blacklisted.etc.etc?... I have already answered that in the concerned thread with relevant reasoning. Just my reason btw and ...
    a) doesn't mean that we all agree to that
    b) ofcourse , no one will make a claim for 2000-3000Rs. anyway , nor will I.

    Now, coming to the OP , my lifes ideology revolves around the above scenario. If you are in a situation with many choices and many fears, just stick to doing what the situation demands AT THAT POINT OF TIME . The rest of the factors will take care of themselves. Those are not in your control. Neither, an accident is in your control . That's why it's called an accident.

    If you really stick to focusing on the situation in hand and just work on resolving it, it will be the best thing you can do to yourself. IT WILL BE THE BEST THING THAT IS TO DO AT THAT POINT , every other calculations are just your fears which will kill each other out if you just ignore them.

    You can call it luck or co-incidence but I believe that's how it is:thumbup:

    Nice scenario Fastlove. Definitely agree with your POV about insurance claim. Insurance is there to be used. Just use it judiciously. More importantly, drive safe. Accidents happen, but try and avoid being the cause of one :D
