Let’s Begin with One Paragraph Short Story
It was a heavy jolt from a power unknown. The Jaguar was no more staring at me. Thanks to the power unknown, It saved me from the jaguar’s powerful jaws. The heavy jolt made me awake as early as 3 am. I wasn’t so fresh as I was still feeling sleepy. My little lad opened the window and what I saw, swarms of army Ants was building the castle on each other while pulling up the big piece of loaf. I was about to take a close up photo but they entered into the poorly sealed door frame. Suddenly I heard a feeble voice…someone whispered deep into my heart and said, wake up lad before you get too late.
Do you know what happened in the last? The struggling swarm of ants took my sleep away. I felt some power deep inside. As someone sung to me some motivational lines. Now I was standing on my feet and was ready to start my new morning like never before.
So now lets come to the crux!
Sometimes, God signals our attention to important things in such a way. So let us ask ourselves a simple question…
“Let’s Ponder A Bit”
How many of us take such inspirations?
How many times did it happen that we practically heard the chirping of the morning birds?
How often we were awake at 3 am, 4 am or even at 5 am?
Probably we notice not the signs from the powers unknown. The compelling life-changing lines sometimes are just the combos of some literary words. Perhaps we are unappreciative, unthankful careless humans.
How many of us consider religion a true guide for our lives? I believe it’s a complete way of life. Study says according to 2012 estimates 31.5% are the Christians in the world, 23.2% are the Muslims along with 15% of Hindus, 7.1% are the Buddhists, 5.9% are from folk religions and there is 1% of the others as well. Interestingly I found not a single religion where sluggish ones like me were supported.
Do you feel that the world and we all human beings are in danger due to atomic war weapons? So what about the dangers associated with the trends that are eating us, as termites eat strongly all things wood. I feel that the world is also not so safe because of the trends it has adopted.
Few References From The Holy Books
Although our religious scriptures like Quran, The master key, it is mentioned in Sora Naba, God says,
“And made your sleep for rest” (Surah An-Naba, 9)
At another point in the Quran, As in Al-Furqan 25:47, it is mentioned that
“And He it is who makes the night a garment for you and [your] sleep a rest, and causes every [new] day to be a resurrection.”
Whereas in English Standard Version of Bible in 6:9-11 it is mentioned, A kind of warning is there, it speaks to all and says,
“How long will you lie there, O sluggard? When will you arise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want like an armed man.”
(Proverbs 6:9-11 ESV Bible)
Henry David Thoreau, a famous American philosopher wrote some beautiful lines, He says,
“Cultivate the habit of early rising. It is unwise to keep headlong on a level with the feet.”
What are all these references? I believe we must try to enhance awareness for such alarming situations, our trends have become a constant danger for us. The universe is still in shape, form and well managed, unfortunately, we are not…
Are we? So,
Wake up you all before it is too late
