“Rain fills the size of the vessel which contains it.
Even God cannot give you beyond what you believe you deserve.”
Rain fills the size of the vessel. It’s raining. You’re standing there with one spoon. And then you’re blaming, saying that you didn’t give me enough. No, that’s… rain fills the size of the vessel you hold.
Somebody else is standing there with a tumbler, somebody is holding a mug, somebody is having a bucket, somebody has built a cement tank, somebody built a swimming pool and somebody dug an artificial lake and said, “let all that fall and I’ll have…” Rain fills the size of the vessel that you have.
A man was jogging one morning, and at a distance, he saw there was a fisherman who was fishing.
Just curious how this entire process happens. He jogged close to him, and he was watching the fishermen to see, every time the fisherman caught a big fish, he threw it back into the river. And every time he caught a small fish, he put it into his icebox.
The jogger said, “All my life I have seen fishermen, and for the first time I’m seeing, because normally people who do fishing, they prefer the big ones. Why are you throwing back the big ones and keeping only the small ones?” And it seems the fisherman said, “I also hate to do what I’m doing, but I’m so helpless. I have only a small frying pan in the house. The big ones won’t fit there.”
And he was not talking about him, he was talking about all of us. Lot of us have a very small frying pan here. Opportunities come in search of us. We say it’s too big for us. We say it’s not good enough for me. You’re scared even to think in one billion dollars.
If you’re not even prepared to think in one billion dollars, how will we become one? Somebody who sold Chai, at some stage of his life desired he can be the Prime Minister of this country. That was the beginning. If you’re not even willing to desire that, nothing can be done.
If you keep telling yourself that I am a sinner, I am a sinner; I am a sinner, so I’ll never have a divine experience in life, so be it. You’ll never have a divine experience in life. Not because divinity did not want to unfold through you, but you have unqualified yourself for that experience.
Rain fills the size of the vessel which contains it. Even God cannot give you beyond what you believe you deserve. If you keep convincing yourself that I’m cut out for crying in life, I’m cut out for miseries in life, I’m cut out for all these challenges in life, you are scripting such a future for yourself.
You are all time creating the script. Life means if there is an up, there will be a down. Till now he didn’t have that plan, but now that you have told if there is up, there will be a down, down is coming, and you draw this into your own life. You draw this into your own life. And life outside is a manifestation of how you think, and that’s the truth.
