Many of us have heard about the statement “EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON”, but some people don’t know why we usually say this. Here is a real story from the time of World ‘Akbar-Birbal’ which will let you believe in this statement.
It is a story from the times of Emperor “Akbar” who had a wise Advisor “Birbal”. Birbal followed Akbar everywhere, and his favourite advice to his emperor was, “Everything happens for the good”.
One day, Akbar decided to go out hunting, and he took Birbal with him, and during his hunting experience, a terrible accident occurred to the king, and he got one of his fingers chopped off. The king helplessly asked the wise man why such unfortunate incident had befallen on him since he has ruled his country with love and was respected by all his people. At that moment, the wise man just said: “Everything happens for a reason and it’s great.” This time the king reacted with violence and anger against the wise man, and ordered his soldiers to throw him into prison. And asked Birbal, “Now, what do you think now?” The Birbal again replied, “Everything happens for a reason and it’s great”. So Birbal remained in prison.
After a period of time, the king decided again to go out hunting again, and this time without Birbal. The tribe captured the King and everyone that he brought along. The cannibal tribe was actually preparing for the festival of sacrifice! They were searching for a perfect sacrifice for the worshiping, and they got the King! The King is destined to be sacrificed….
The shaman prepared for the ritual and examined the King. But the shaman later found out that one of the king’s fingers is severed, and for this, he said to the tribe master that this sacrifice is refused, because according to their religion that stipulates only perfect and complete sacrifices and that if they proceed with an incomplete sacrifice – in their belief- will bring God’s curse upon them. They considered that the King is not “worthy” and the tribe master decided to release the King.
Akbar realized Birbal’s words and repented for leaving him in the well and went back to get him. When Akbar explains what happened and apologised to Birbal for his actions, Birbal says “Your Majesty, good that you left me, else they would have sacrificed me instead of you”.
“Everything happens For a Reason.”
Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be (
possibly your roommate, neighbour, teacher, , long lost friend, lover, or even a complete stranger), but when you lock eyes with them, you know that at that very moment they will affect your life in some profound way.
And sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realised your potential, strength, willpower, or heart.
The people you meet who affect your life, and the success and downfalls you experience, help to create who you are and who you become. Even the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most important ones. If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to when you open your heart. If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you to love and how to open your heart and eyes to things. Make every day count.
Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to.
Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in you. You can make your life anything you wish. Create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets.
