In spiritual practice, the reference to the clouds always captures the attention of many. From the view of earth, clouds cast a powerful and moving appearance. They can range from white and soft (ease and calm), to dark thunderheads (stress and worry). These images represent the movement of thought in all human beings. Simply, some days we are light and free of all burdens, and other days we are struggling with concern and unease.
What is so important to sense, is that despite the great presensce of clouds, they are always changing, lifting and spreading. They float through the emptiness of the sky, as your thoughts continue to float through your mind.
This is the great secret. To allow your thoughts to come and go, not holding onto them, nor dwelling on them.
