lyrics

I misunderstood the teaching when I first heard it brought down.
Two were praying for rain; one famous, one unknown. The famous
one made a load of prayers – no rain. The unknown erupted in a
simple spontaneous voice. It rained buckets.

A specially created voice was heard, the voice said: it is not
because one is greater than the other, but because one listens and
forgives. And the other? The other listens and forgives. Did I hear
that right?

Maybe it’s the listening, I thought, and the willingness to overcome
your own obstacles, opening to the reality of someone else even
your enemy. It’s about nothing else than growing beyond yourself.
For each of us it’s the same and it’s different.

There comes a time when all of us will have to move off our mark if
we are to grow; make peace, make rain.

Grow – that’s what the story is about. The reward is rain when there
is growth. I love that: growth, then rain.

The rain came because someone in this story was willing to face the
challenge of life by growth, it didn’t matter which one because they
weren’t enemies anyway. The world needed rain, not adversaries.

Every living thing, every blade of grass, has an angel hovering over it
who demands one thing: grow.
