The Story of the Chinese Farmer
When something bad turned into something good for you? And other way round?
Everything is connected!
Everything happens for a reason!
Sometimes things in our lives don’t turn out as we were hoping for. These are the moments when we are not being rejected but redirected.
We see only a puzzle, while Life “sees” the whole picture!
Learn to trust this force that is guiding us ever since before we knew ourselves.
Next time something happens to you, that is not as you wished, and your mind starts having negative thoughts about it, try to finish your thoughts with adding “Maybe yes, maybe not”. What did I learned from this experience? And don’t worry, even if you cannot think of one thing, Life already knows. Trust Life!
Battle with the Fear
Once there was a young warrior. Her teacher told her that she had to do battle with fear. She didn’t want to do that. It seemed too aggressive; it was scary; it seemed unfriendly. But the teacher said she had to do it and gave her the instructions for the battle. The day arrived. The student warrior stood on one side, and fear stood on the other. The warrior was feeling very small, and fear was looking big and wrathful. They both had their weapons. The young warrior roused herself and went toward fear, prostrated three times, and asked, "May I have permission to go into battle with you?" Fear said, "Thank you for showing me so much respect that you ask permission." Then the young warrior said, "How can I defeat you?" Fear replied, "My weapons are that I talk fast, and I get very close to your face. Then you get completely unnerved, and you do whatever I say. If you don’t do what I tell you, I have no power. You can listen to me, and you can have respect for me. You can even be convinced by me. But if you don’t do what I say, I have no power." In that way, the student warrior learned how to defeat fear.
