Pigeons – An Insightful Wisdom………

120411114630-cairo-pigeons-flock-on-rooftop-horizontal-large-gallery.jpg

In an ancient temple, a number of pigeons lived happily on the roof top. When the renovation of the temple began for the annual temple feast the pigeons relocated themselves to a Church nearby.  The existing pigeons in the Church accommodated the new comers very well.

Christmas was nearing and the Church was given a face-lift, all the pigeons had to move out and look for another place. They were very fortunate to find a place in a Mosque nearby.  The pigeons who were already staying in the Mosque welcomed them happily.  It was Ramadan time and the Mosque was repainted, all the pigeons now had to leave and came back to the same ancient temple.

One day the pigeons on top found some communal clashes below in a market square. There was a lot of chaos and there were many people who died. The baby pigeon asked the mother pigeon, ‘Who are these people?  The mother replied, they are called ‘Human Beings’.  The baby asked, ‘But why are they fighting with each other?  The mother said, ‘These human beings going to temple are called ‘Hindus’ and the people going to Church are called ‘Christians’ and the people going to Mosque are called ‘Muslims.’

The baby pigeon asked, ‘Why is it so? When we were in the temple we were called ‘Pigeons’, when we were in the church we were called ‘Pigeons’ and when we were in the mosque, we were called ‘Pigeons’. Similarly, they should be called just ‘human beings’ wherever they go?’  The mother pigeon said, ‘You and me and our pigeon friends have experienced God and that is why we are living here in a highly elevated place peacefully. These people are yet to experience God.  They seem to have not known him and keep on believing in their own make believe houses. How can they ever find peace and happiness? God is found in their hearts and not some place outside of them.

Temples, Mosques and Churches are in them, they need not go to all these imaginary places to find Him. Hence they are living below us and fighting and killing each other gruesomely without knowing that God resides in each and every one without any caste or creed. They have forgotten how to love their fellowmen.

Always remember, we all have our own opinions and beliefs. We have different ways in dealing with life’s troubles and joys but to survive our difference without hurting each other is what GOODNESS is all about.

Live Simply, Love Truly and Be Thankful.

  1. Beautiful creative writing Kamal! You are gifted! Yes, we are all human beings, but having lived in a war torn country, I think there’s a deeper layer hard for the eye to see. People fight for all sorts of reasons, not simply because of “faith.” And even if we don’t fight outwardly, every person alive has probably experienced a hateful thought. Romans 3:23 says “we all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Our sin separates us from God. “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). And the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus. For by grace we’ve been saved, through the faith. As a Christian of course I hold dearly to these truths, and am incredibly thankful to Christ for saving me. But of course I do not go out fighting with folks in order to believe the same as me. Whatever faith someone holds, if they fight with others about their faith, (unless their doctrine teaches this), they are going against their faith, thus sinning. Sadly, many people of faith do not know their own doctrines, and/or misinterpret them and so go out hurting others. Going wayback, we could even use the Apostle Paul as an example. He vehemently persecuted Christians, before God got hold of him, changed his heart, and Paul became a Christian Himself. There are people who “fight”with the misguided notion that they are serving God. Then there are countless others who simply fight for selfish monetary gain, and this happens even in war, many of which have nothing to do with God. I’m not sure if anything I’m saying makes sense here. Going back to your story, I love the underlying messages to understand each other, and not fight. But a higher understanding of God in my humble opinion implies receiving Jesus Christ as Savior. Only then can we be reconciled to God and know Him personally. In knowing him personally the hope would be to adopt his heart. Adopting his heart is a life journey of transformation. Along the way we will fall and fight at times. My take away from your message is to be understanding and accepting of all people, regardless of faith, creed, color, or their morning breath 😜 Great write! Still thinking …

    1. Yes I absolutely agree totally with your words of truth and reality, Leila. Christ and all like him who were the Source came to tell us all what u have said and that no one is separate but one and we have so much to learn from birds, natural surroundings who are God’s creatures but they never fight and they do their work silently. So we have so many things to learn from them. Thanks so much dear.

      1. I love learning from nature! So many precious life lessons. Animals do fight, but for different reasons. And there are lessons in that too. Years ago two of my dogs got into a fight when a neighboring girl went into heat. I suppose their hormones kicked in Lol! Thankfully I was there and brought them back to earth. They were snuggling and sleeping together that very night 😊
