Today when I was travelling I happened to look out of the window at the sky. It was a beautiful blue expanse. Then there were some fluffy white clouds …and below them were the dark heavy rain clouds. It was almost as if it was weighing down the whole sky keeping the blue from being being itself. And I thought this is so much like our black clouds of anger and pain and hate and all the other negative emotions and feelings we carry. They weigh us down and keep us from being happy and light. Then there was a wind and the black clouds in the sky were being gently blown away. Can we not do this too.. with each breath we exhale breathe out as much of our personal black clouds as possible. So that we can have a clear unclouded and light mind. Let’s do it today one breath at a time.
