I was having the lower back pain since last two weeks so doctor suggested an MRI, after long waiting, finally got the insurance approval for the MRI so I went to have that yesterday at the appointment time.
I went to MRI room and inform the technician about my appointment. He said I need to get some paper from the insurance department so I went there to insurance department to have the papers, which I found out that they had misplaced. So they created a new one, and ask me to get the account department to get it stamped. I got it stamped and came back to insurance department; they did something on the computer, stamped and send back to me MRI.
In the whole process I was acting like messenger taking papers from here to there. They had all the information and there is nothing really require from me other than their stupid process.
Obviously that was very irritating for me, and it became more when I finally reach to MRI room and the guy started with another paper asking basic question , what my name , my age, why I want to have MRI and what the problem, what sort of pain. I was about to blast however I kept my cool.
The whole process seems stupid and mechanical to me and frustrating, everyone acting dumb with nice smile on his/her face.
Anyway Finally I was inside the MRI machine and machine start scanning me. With dang-dang sound coming from machine, although I was still in bad mode, I got another thought and view of whole situation.
I suddenly realized when all the peoples were acting dumb and mechanical I have the opportunity to act smart and intelligent which I did and all the people around me there to help me out.
I was like the main CPU of the computer to make intelligent decision having communication with the different passive components and it up to me to get my experience better; I had the room to act rather to react like passive component in a system, so which could be better, a dumb Zahoor or an intelligent Zahoor.
I always prefer room where I could play so why not rather I expect somebody smile at me, why not I first smile and receive the same, why not I drive my life and experience rather to wait others to improve my experience, the same 20 minutes of waiting could have been different if I just focused on the objective to get the MRI done to identify the root cause of my problem.
And after all those people are there to help me, they are all doing their duties to get my MRI done, to solve my problem and to get me out of pain. Isn’t everything there for me? Allah has created a world around me to help me out, He put people, process, and facilities around me and make me Center of universe.
The moment I get the right context, I felt like king, I realize everything around me, working for me, God is helping me, talking to me in different forms, He is just everywhere, every actions around me a message to me to act, learn and grow more maturely and responsibly.
What else I want, everything is working me, it just like when a toddler start walking, he fells but parent doesn’t stop him falling, it is the process of learning and I don’t how many such avenues of learning we do miss everyday having wrong context. Every bad experience is not a bad experience is a learning experience.
He is there, everywhere.
And thus did We show Ibrahim the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and that he might be of those who are sure. When the night covered him over, He saw a star: He said: "This is my Lord." But when it set, He said: "I love not those that set." When he saw the moon rising in splendour, he said: "This is my Lord." But when the moon set, He said: "unless my Lord guide me, I shall surely be among those who go astray." When he saw the sun rising in splendour, he said: "This is my Lord; this is the greatest (of all)." But when the sun set, he said: "O my people! I am indeed free from your (guilt) of giving partners to Allah. For me, I have set my face, firmly and truly, towards Him Who created the heavens and the earth, and never shall I give partners to Allah."
