Few Short Stories………

TOTAL SURRENDER:

A person started to walk on a rope tied between two tall towers at several hundred feet above the ground. He is slowly walking balancing a long stick in his hands. He has his son sitting on his shoulders.  Everyone down were watching him in bated breath and were tensed beyond words. Some were already praying in murmurs. He slowly reached the second tower. Everyone clapped, whistled and welcomed him with utter delight. Afterwards, they shook hands and took selfies with him.

He then asked the crowd, “Do you all think I can walk back on the same rope now from this side to that side?” Crowd shouted, “Yes, Yes, you can.” “Do you trust me” he asked? They said, “Yes, yes we are ready to bet on you.  He said okay, and then asked the crowd, “Can anyone of you sit on my shoulder, I will take you to the other side safely”. There was pin drop silence and everyone became quiet. No one could say anything but stared at the man dumbfounded and some just walked off.

Belief is very different compared to Trust. For Trust you need total surrender. There is no question of ifs and buts. It is to go head long and take the plunge whatever the consequences.  This is what we all are lacking towards God in today’s world. We believe in God; we have utmost faith in Him but we don’t trust Him with ourselves.

GIVE WHILE YOU ARE LIVING:

A rich Goan landlord once asked his parish priest: “Why does everybody call me stingy when everyone knows that when I die I will leave everything I have to this church?” The priest answered, “There once was a pig and a cow in this village. The pig was unpopular and the cow was loved by all in the village.  This puzzled the pig.”

The pig said to the cow, “People speak so warmly of your good nature and your helpful attitude.  They think you are very generous because each day you give them milk, butter and cheese. But what about me? I give them everything I have. I give them the famous Goa sausages, bacon and ham. I also provide ingredients for mouth-watering sorpotel. Yet no one likes me. Why is that?”

The priest then told the man and continued on this story, “Do you know what the cow answered? The Cow said, “Perhaps it is because I give while I am still living.” The rich man understood the meaning behind this message and gave whatever he had to the needy and never looked back.

Give whenever you can there is nothing that we are taking with us. Seeing the joy on their faces makes you feel satisfied beyond measure. Be Selfless at all times.

NEVER ASK “WHY?” TO THE CREATOR:

Sometimes some things are written on your fate.  No matter how hard you may try to change them, they never change. The crow and the parrot were both created ugly.  But the parrot protested to its Creator and was made beautiful. However, the crow remained content with the will of its Creator and remained ugly. No human was ready to keep him in their house as a pet. Today the parrot with its beautiful myriad colours is in the cage where his freedom is curtailed and the crow flies free as he wishes.

Behind each and every incident there is an exquisite wisdom that maybe you will never understand it therefore, never ask “Why?” to the Creator. He knows best and has chalked out plans for each and every one in life. Do not crib and cry, “Why Me.” He knows what he is doing. Enjoy his creation and Love Life.

  1. All three of these stories mean so much to me, Kamal, but the first one is especially what I needed to hear today. Yes, I believe, and I have believed for a long time … but do I completely trust God? Wow! This is a very penetrating question, and especially right now in my life I really need to deeply trust God. Thank you for sharing these stories! And as always, blessings to you!

    1. Thanks dear Jonathan for these beautiful and warm words. I can so relate to u. The first story really showed us r we really trusting in him and surrendering our all to him whether good or bad. But we as humans r simply talking to God that we surrender to u but in reality not meaning a word of truth. Sometimes u really need them to open your eyes. Thanks once again. Much love and blessings from our God🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

  2. Trust … that’s a tough one sometimes, Kamal. Giving …. SO much of my life is founded in giving and yes it brings great satisfaction and JOY to me. Not asking why …. again not easy. I still do however. There are times in my life that are just so heartbreakingly sad I cry out, “Why?” Loved the stories! Thank you!

    1. Thanks so much dear Amy for your valuable feedback and I think we as humans all feel like this and question God, why me but he knows what each ones life he has chalked out so as he says leave everything to me and I will take u by the hand to where I want u to. Life is a sure rollercoaster dear but we have to take up the challenge and not allow our ego to take over and pull us down. Blessings to you dear from our One God😊😊😊😊😊😊😊

      1. It’s not so much ego as it is my broken heart that cries out to God, Kamal. I abide by His Will but still there are times when I feel so broken by the events that occur in my life. I believe we all do in those very dark times of our lives, whether we admit to it or not. 🤗

      2. Yes absolutely Amy we sure do we r human beings who will definitely being making mistakes but I tell you our surrender is not complete if we have no faith in Him. U know remove this idea from your end that u have a broken heart because u don’t always think u r a lovely and loving nature and that u are eternal, blissful soul and be happy and joyful. I know we all go through hell but this we have to but everything passes. This is all an illusion nothing exists.

      3. Kamal, I was referring to when someone I LOVE is dying. That is what I happening now. Please don’t tell me everything is an illusion and that nothing exists. Love exists and when it comes to saying GOOD BYE it hurts and it breaks my heart into millions of pieces. And then from there I pick myself up, hang on to God, and in Faith, continue to walk forward, healing the grief as I do that is prevalent in my heart. I’ve experienced 9 personal deaths with those I love with all my heart since my Mom’s death two and half years ago and now number 10 is in progress. If that is not real, if that is not pain, I don’t know what is.

      4. Apology accepted, Kamal. I am extremely sensitive right now, vacillating between anger and tears. I just find myself beginning to recover from one death when it seems I’m staring at another one. It’s been a nightmarish past few years and it is not stopping. Also …. when I had my NDE in 1984 I was shown quite clearly that the only thing that does exist and is real is Love. When someone I Love with everything I have is dying, a part of me dies too. It is only through my own strength and God’s mercy that I have been able to recover from so many deaths and to move forward with my life. I experience the stages of grieving while someone I Love is dying and afterwards as well. Like I said, it’s been a real rough couple of years and yet ….. I insist on focusing on Good as best I can.

      6. All is good, Kamal. Truly. You apologized and I do not hold onto grudges. Yes God is in control and He is with me, which comforts me more then you know. I respect you for trying to support me in the way you know how to. Now I ask you not to feel badly about this … we both were honest, we both were adults and spoke the truth. And in doing so, forgiveness was derived and Peace gained. That is how Love works and that is what makes God smile. Much Love to you! xo
