"At one point in a Province of China, there was a terrible drought and the situation became quite dire. Finally, the Chinese sought out a rainmaker, similar to a shaman, and brought him to their village to make his magic. He locked himself up in a house for 3 days, and then suddenly, on the fourth day, clouds appeared and here was a great snowstorm!
As the whole town rejoiced, the people went to speak to the rainmaker, to ask him how he did it. "What have you done these 3 days?" they asked. The shaman's reply was that in this Province, things were out of balance, which put him out of balance as well. It took him 3 days to get back into harmony, and then the environment naturally did too; so the precipitation came."
