As I am a person of strong belief in pictures as I think pictures always are linked wirh direct threads to our hearts and subconsciousness I am always in search for those photos and pics which create an echo in my heart – a particular resonance – as I often feel emphatic and strongly overwhelmed by feelings of which I am not able to trace the cause … in moments like these I have a simple remedy to divert myself and my silly mind from those feelings …I go searching for pictures and sage wordings attached to them.That I did also today – as there was a huge wave of feelings overwhelming me with being lost again on a strange shore of my very own mind which tried to over-run me again with all the “ifs” and “whens” ….
I called out to my spiritual guide and than I went on my quest or search – whatever you may call it……and
I found exactly the right story attached to some pic (which I couldn’t retrieve here due to lack of knowledge of the very technique to it). But I could share this magnificent story which soothed at once my on-storming feelings of lower frequencies and that ‘s the reason why I want to share it with you here:
One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.
He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well
. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down.
A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.
As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.
Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
1. Free your heart from hatred – Forgive.
2. Free your mind from worries – Most never happen.
3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less
I took this story from facebook album of Scott Goodknight and thank him for letting me share it.
