I was out working with my gutter and window business and it started to rain. It was pouring real hard. I don’t know, why but I told myself, “man it would be so cool if it stopped raining when I get to the peak of this roof.” I kept on walking, taking large steps, like I was enjoying being out there in this storm. Actually on some level I think I was. And then, to my surprise, just a few seconds later, when I got to the peak, it stopped raining. I could not believe it. I stood there trying to understand what happened. Then the sun came out and surprised me even more. The roof had a steam rising up off of it from the sunlight and the water. I sat down, there on top of the roof, tripping, trying to understand what happened.
This was just the first time I made it stop raining. I know it sounds crazy to say it that way, but you know what I mean.
I began to analyse what happened during such times. I came up with this. If you can lightly decide something is going to happen, not really care if it happens, not think about how it will happen, nor think about whether it will happen or not, not even think about it afterwards, and walk confidently in that direction of it happening, you may be surprised at the results.

Yes, Craig – that’s exactly the way it feels! Congratulations for putting it so eloquently as it’s sucha subtle experience and so very difficult to describe in words.
Thank you for letting me know that I am not alone on this and that it came across well and understandable. You are right it can be hard to convey such things. Peace and Blessings.
I live in Winnipeg Canada and it’s been the harshest winter since 1898. A few days ago we were supposed to get yet another dump of snow and I said a little prayer that the snow would somehow miss us. The communities around us got several inches of snow but not us. I joked that we didn’t get the snow because of my little prayer, but I secretly believed it was true, I like your ‘lightly decide’ something will happen. Why not?
Thank you I am glad you like the post. Thank you for sharing your experience. I too believe that your experience was a result of your lightly deciding. I have done this many times and seen unbelievable results. Peace and Blessings
