Rocky water

Once there was a stone in a stream. This stone was proud of his strenght and despised the water, touching him again and again, until the stone got furious and angry. He beated against the water, opposed it and tried to push it away. But this intangible element just kept flooding. The stone couldn´t stop it, no matter how rocky he behaved.

The stone recognized he started to loose substance in this fight, so he yelled at the water: “Will you stop to drown me, your fleeciness is disgusting!“
The water wondered „Why do you resist?“
“I´m a solid stone, don´t touch me with your weakness!“
„You call me weak? I`m even stronger than you and don´t you dare to stand in my way!“

The stone opposed the water, beating incessantly against it, but nothing did help. The more he fighted the water, the harder the water pushed back. The more the stone resisted, the more he lost substance. The more the water pushed, the more the stone was in the way, disturbing the flow with resistance.

But finely both became tired and suddenly they decided to surrender. And oh wonder, their world became smooth and easy. The stone purled: „Dear water, it´s fine that you flow. Embrace me with your lovely stream.“ The water mumbled „Oh dear stone, it´s okay. Just hold me tight and give me direction.“

They now form a beautiful little river in union, crossing the middle of my town. The egrets have lunch in it, children playing at its shore and I love to go there for a walk.

Find the hidden treasure

Every seemingly difficult lifesituation has a hidden treasure in it. As long as we focus on the problem and get hypnotized by the “story” we can´t see it. But it´s there. Always!

Every storm takes away the dust and every rainshower waters the land. Accept their existance and don´t resist them. You can´t avoid the storms, but you might become stronger, wiser and more self-confident with each and every one you went through.

There is an absurde idea living inside us: The idea a good life would be a life without challenges. That´s just not true. We came here to make experiences, to explore life and to grow. From this standpoint every difficult life-situation is in our favour.

With this point of view you´ll stop clinging on the problem, but search for solutions. You are working with life, not against it. That´ll spare you a lot of pain and energy. When life is bringing us on our knees, it might be a good opportunity to observe the ground. Maybe there are interesting things to find. Or you realize you have really good friends, that´ll help you stand up again. When there´s noone, than it might be time to learn about independency.

Ask yourself: If my soul had chosen this situation, what could be the reason? Trust your inner voice. If you don´t find it, try to see your situation from a distant perspective, as if through the eyes of a stranger. Often the observer sees it quite clearly. Have patience if you shouldn´t see it instantly, but be assured there´s a hidden treasure for you. Even to know that helps already and hands back your own power.

Let life be in your service. Even people trying to bring you down are unknowingly working as your servant, may they know it or not. Life is conspiring to work for you.

Shine your light!
