ASSUMPTION MIGHT CAUSE A PRECIOUS LOSS December 16, 2008 crizlai Life can be quite complicated at times whether you are in a situation, over a situation or caught in between a situation. Situations may look as that in your eyes but they were not always the way they seemed to be in another person’s eyes or mind. No matter what, keep on finding out about the truth before even assuming that another person or situation is bad. It takes time to understand a person or situation to be firmed on your verdict. Even the planet earth wasn’t created overnight, so how could you just judge a person or situation by the surface? Assumption is a bad word in my personal dictionary as it comes from the word “ASSUME”, meaning having the thought or action on a situation or a person deemed to be true. Thus, you should know by now why I hate mingling with people with that attitude. I have always practice NOT TO ASS/U/ME as it would always end up making an “ASS” out of “U” and “ME”. I’m sure some of you might have heard about the story of the two angels who were on a learning expedition? During one night, they had decided to call on a wealthy man’s house for some food and lodging. Instead of letting them stay in the guestrooms, they were led into a dark and cold basement. Stale bread and water were served to them. As they were about to sleep on the hard cold floor, the older angel saw a hole on the wall and repaired it. The older angel saw the confused look on the younger angel’s face and smilingly told him, “Things aren’t always what they seem.” During another night, both angels decided to put up in a poor couple’s house. They were served like kings with the best hospitality they had experienced through their expedition. The couples shared not only whatever food they had but also allowed their bed to be used by the angels. Upon sunrise, both angels were woken by loud cries. The couple’s cow lay dead in the field. They had lost their sole income. The younger angel was stunned at the outcome and stared furiously at the older angel. The older angel replied, “Things aren’t always what they seem.” He later explained that he had to close the hole in the wealthy man’s house as he saw some gold hidden in that hole. Since the owner was so obsessed with greed and unwilling to share his good fortune, he had sealed the wall so that he would not find them. He further explained that he had to give up the cow instead as the Angel of Death was by the poor man’s wife the previous night. Sometimes that is exactly what happens when things don’t turn out the way they should. If you have faith, you just need to trust that every outcome is always to your advantage. You might not know it until some time later. That’s why it’s bad to make any assumptions without finding out about the truth. A life might be at stake even during the most difficult time to decide on our fates. That’s life… even the most precious person on earth could not escape his fate as shown below in the video… I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
