We depend on rain for our water supply.
We depend on oxygen to breathe.
We depend on day to work and play.
We depend on night to rest and sleep.
We do not create or have anything to do with any of these so called “natural” phenomena.
More often than not we take them for granted.
What or who else are you taking for granted in your life?
Where are you just showing up and receiving blessings without giving something in return?
In order to have water all the time, even when we go for periods without rains, we have to built dams and wells and cisterns.
We accept the oxygen by breathing, and some of us practice deep breathing as we have learnt that this habit expands our lungs and helps the oxygen to circulate more fully throughout our bodies.
Similarly, with the day and night, we have learnt how to harness and maximize both times, and the benefits and necessity of each for us.
So it is not really true that the good things in life are free. Nothing is free. Everything requires our conscious or unconscious reciprocal energy.
Therefore, if you want rain in your life, make sure you have a container to store it, and you plan for its uses so you will always have water when you need it.
Think about all the people and the plant and animal life throughout the world who die from lack of water. Pause now and send them a drop of daily rain. You and your thoughts are that powerful.
