For once there lived a young man who felt lost in the world.
He did not know what he wanted.
He felt alone and uncertain.
He had energy and good health, but his mind darted around like a puppy chasing leaves.
And then one day the young man saw a cloud that spoke.
“I know you,” said the cloud.
The boy, not used to clouds speaking, stared in silence.
“I know you,” the cloud repeated.
“I-I can’t possibly see how,” the young man replied, feeling idiotic and confused.
“I know you,” again said the cloud.
“What do you know?” the boy asked.
“I know you will follow your path, though for now you feel you have none, and I know your path will lead to greatness, happiness, satisfaction and great accomplishment.”
“I don’t know what any of that means,” said the boy.
“You will, one day,” said the cloud.
“But today? What do I do today?”
“In each life there is a path already planned,” the cloud explained. “You have free will to struggle with it and resist it, but once you give in to it and surrender to your path, all will be smooth – like clouds floating in the sky.”
“But how do I know my path?”
“It’s revealed in bite sized clues, given in each moment. Quiet your mind, relax, and tune within to the next clue.”
“Then follow it.”
And before the boy knew it, the cloud began to break apart and slowly disappear.
“I know you,” said the cloud as it merged with the sky.
The young man, not sure what to make of all this, went to sleep.
It would be years before he would awaken.
And even upon awakening, he wondered if it were all a dream.
Or maybe it still is?
PS – You know what this means.
I love this, a parable in episodes. It makes me wonder what’s next and I can’t wait to find out.
A new one awaits with a glow on its face..
I don’t know how You did it Joe, but it seems like it was PERFECT time for me to read this post. THANK YOU <3
You are welcome, Michael. 🙂
“When you are Zero, everybody else is Zero”, said the Cloud 🙂
Thank you Joe for everything you do! I know that there are lot of people talking about you like “He has a lot of money, he is not spiritual, etc…”. But, that kind of thought can’t come from inspiration 🙂
A few weeks ago I told to my friend in Serbia – if there is a man who is going to erase homelesness from the Earth – his name is Ao Akua 🙂
I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you and I love you!
What he said. 🙂
Dear Joe, just wanted to thank you for the reply and to tell you that I’ve just finished listening to the audiobook “At zero”. It is wonderful and as miraculous as “Zero limits” is.
Near the end og recording as I listened to your voice, something made me turn my head, so I looked through the window. There was a white, puffy, funny cloud… and he was speaking to me. “I know you” and “I love you” he said a few times… And then he disappeared. I know that you’ll understand why I wanted to share this with you. Thank you again. And… I remember you, you were so great 🙂
You made me smile, my friend. 🙂
Joe I needed this information as my son said I was dying and it affected me. I am a metastatic breast cancer patient and doing well currently though they are watching me… I am on a chemo tablet… I went to a retreat of Petrea King and pumped and then he visited and busted my balloon. I hope the cloud is saying I know u to me. Thank you Joe…
The cloud sends love and knows you…
