Let It Rain.

Most people don’t like rain. They find it inconveniencing.
Most people find an umbrella, 
or stay indoors.
Very few people allow themselves to get wet.
Very few dare to delightfully dance in the rain and be soaked in it. 

However, isn't it true that only after it rains and rains and rains,
do we see grasses and plants sprouting from everywhere. 
Overnight, you begin to see green…
Sometimes it seems to have taken us by surprise; 
the green, the flowers that seem to appear from nowhere, 
all of a sudden, we might wonder where all the life and colour and green and flowers come from…

This is the result of rain. The effect of rain. The benefit of rain.
When you expose yourself to rain, to be watered, to be drenched, no matter how inconveniencing, no matter how uncomfortable, you will spring forth…You will blossom. 
After you have been watered, you will grow and only then can you be able to feed others, be it their sight, their ears, their belly, or their intellect. 
You will only be able to bless yourself as well as others after you, yourself, have been blessed.
But first you need to expose yourself to rain.

Giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge, ... 
“…Get wisdom, and in all thy gettings, get understanding”

Allow yourself to be taught. Seek knowledge. Embrace learning.
Let rain come, allow yourself to be watered, to get wet. 
To be thoroughly soaked, to be swept away by the sheer force of it.

And after you have received, remember to water others.
