If you had no facts to believe in one love story or the other, which one would you believe in? The one that sounds fantastical or the one that makes realistic sense? The final ten pages of Life of Pi ask this question and every time something miraculous sounding happens, I think of it. Recently, a horse named Beatrice collapsed, and was revived (almost miraculously) by Beau, her stablemate of four years.
Beau Revives Beatrice
Owners Lipingtons noticed that their horse was suffering from a strong pain. High blood pressure and other complexities were leading to conditions that Beatrice may have to be put down. Stablemate Beau came to the rescue by willing Beatrice to stand up, and since then Beatrice has made full recovery.
“We are used to seeing extraordinary interactions between the horses but we have never witnessed a horse saving another’s life. Beau achieved what six hours of human endeavour with straps and machinery had failed to – he managed to lift Beatrice up off the floor which has allowed her to live on.” – Ms Lipington
Life And Death Are In Tandem
Life and death are simply two sides of the same coin. Death is a fact of life and none of us have the gift of immortality. It’s not necessarily that the power of someone else’s love alone can bring a loved one to life. However, it is also true that our will can help us overcome many tough situations. Our mind-power can guide our bodies. Like long distance runners, battles are won not just by pure physical muscle, but by the intentions and our own will to do it.
