Wisdom – Be like the Pencil

be-like-a-pencilThe pencil maker took the pencil aside, just before putting him into the box.

“There are five things you need to know,” he told the pencil, “before I send you out into the world. Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best pencil you can be.”

  1. You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in someone’s hand.
  2. You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you will need it to become a better pencil.
  3. You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.
  4. The most important part of you will always be what’s inside.
  5. On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write.

The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into the box with purpose in his heart.

Now replacing the place of the pencil with you; always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best person you can be.

  1. You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in God’s hand. And allow other human beings to access you for the many gifts you possess.
  2. You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, by going through various problems, but you’ll need it to become a stronger person.
  3. You will be able to correct mistakes you might make or grow through them.
  4. The most important part of you will always be what’s on the inside.
  5. On every surface you walk, you must leave your mark. No matter what the situation.

Everyone is like a pencil… created for a unique and special purpose. By understanding and remembering this, let us proceed with our life by having a meaningful purpose.

Meri khwahish hai ki main phir se farishta ho jaun

Duaen MAA ki pohchaane ko milo-mil jati hai,

Jab bhi kashti meri sailab mein aa jaati hai
maa’n dua karti hui khwaab mein aa jaati hai

A woman who didn’t want the baby

A worried woman went to her Doctor and said :

‘Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help!

My baby is not even one year old and I’m pregnant again. I don’t want kids so close together.’

So the doctor said: ‘OK, and what do you want me to do?’

She said: ‘I want you to perform an abortion, and I’m counting on your help with this.’

The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady:

‘I think I have a better solution for your problem. It’s less dangerous for you too.’

She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.

Then he continued: ‘You see, in order for you not to have to take care of two babies at the same time, let’s kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we’re going to kill one of them, it doesn’t matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.

The lady was horrified and said: ‘No doctor! How terrible! It’s a crime to kill a child!

‘I agree’, the doctor replied. ‘But you seemed to be ok with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.

The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point. He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that’s already been born and one that’s still in the womb. The crime is the same!

>Deciding on the Destinies of Others

>

Malba Tahan tells the story of a man who met an angel in the desert and gave him water.
“I am the angel of death and I came to get you,” said the angel. “But as you were kind, I will lend you the Book of Destiny for five minutes; you may change what you want.”

The angel gave the man the book. As he was leafing through its pages, the man began reading about the lives of his neighbors. And he got discontented,
“These people don’t deserve such nice things,” he said. With the pen in hand, he began worsening the lives of each one.

Finally, he reached the page of his destiny. He saw his tragic end, but as he prepared to change it, the book disappeared. Five minutes had already passed.

And right there, the angel took the man’s soul.
