Effortless Manifestation

Effortless Manifestation

We love to make things more complicated than they are and choose to struggle instead of manifesting our reality.

A beautiful story about effortless manifestation is below.

Once Buddha was walking from one town to another town with a few of his followers. While they were traveling, they happened to pass a lake. They stopped there and Buddha told one of his disciples, “I am thirsty. Do get me some water from that lake.”

The disciple walked up to the lake. When he reached it he noticed that right at that moment a bullock cart started crossing thelake. As a result, the water became very muddy and turbid. The disciple thought, “How can I give this muddy water to Buddha to drink!”

So he came back and told Buddha, “The water in there is very muddy. I don’t think it is fit to drink.” After about half an hour, again Buddha asked the same disciple to go back to the lake and get him some water to drink. The disciple obediently went back to the lake.

He found that the lake was still muddy. He returned and informed Buddha about the cloudy water. After sometime, again Buddha asked the same disciple to go back. The disciple reached the lake to find the lake absolutely clean and clear with pure water in it.The mud had settled down and the water above it was fit to drink. So he collected some water in a pot and brought it to Buddha.

Buddha looked at the water, and then he looked up at the disciple and said, “See what you did to make the water clean. You let it be and the mud settled down on its own and you got clear water. Your mind is also like that! When it is disturbed, just let it be. Give it a little time. It will settle down on its own. You don’t have to put in any effort to calm it down. It will happen. It is effortless.”
