Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud’s premier student in the field
of psychoanalysis, often spoke of the power of miracles
by telling the following story:
There was a village that had been experiencing drought
for five consecutive years. Many famous Rainmakers
had been called, but they had all failed to make rain.
In the villagers last attempt, they called upon a renowned
Rainmaker from afar. When he arrived in the village, he
set up his tent and disappeared inside it for four days.
On the fifth day, the rain started to fall and quenched
the thirst of the parched earth. The people of the village
asked the Rainmaker how he had accomplished such a miracle.
The Rainmaker replied, “I have done nothing”. Astounded
at this explanation, the villagers said, “How can that be?
After you came, for days later, the rain started.”
The Rainmaker explained, “When I arrived, the first thing
I noticed was that everything in your village was out of
harmony with heaven. So I spent four days putting myself
into harmony with the Divine. Then the rains came.””
The story above is an excerpt from the great book
“Do Less, Achieve More” by Chin-Ning Chu
Life was meant to be much simpler, yet somehow, we’ve
fallen into a vicious cycle of “work hard to get ahead” and
then realize that the “work hard” has caused such a state
of unrest in our Hearts and our Souls, that we spend
precious time and money on “quick fixes” that just take
us further from our Truth (and cause even more pain and
suffering in the process).
Until we realize that the Rainmaker knew the right way,
the simple way to create what we really want in our lives.
The ancient proverb that says:
“As within, so without”
clearly highlights that the Source of all is within you.
When you take time to put yourself in harmony with
heaven as the Rainmaker teaches us, you will
experience a priceless gift. A gift of inner peace…
a feeling of calm will emanate from you. When you find
that your life is out of balance (or if you feel stressed
out because of some issue) – remember how the
Rainmaker succeeded where others had failed – he put
himself back into harmony with heaven.
Life is meant to be simpler my friend…
From this day forward, allow yourself time to breathe
and step back from the busy-ness syndrome that
we’ve allowed ourselves to get so caught up in…
As you do, the “rain will certainly fall again” and nourish
your deepest Dreams and passions
