Sunday Zen Quote

“Mind is simply a combination of all the thoughts, of all the clouds. Mind has no independent nature of its own. When all the thoughts are gone and the sky is clean and clear, you will see that everything that you have paid so much attention to is nothing but emptiness. Your thoughts were all empty. They contained nothing, they were void. ” – Osho

Hot Air Balloon

From my email inbox:

So you think you’re having a bad day…

then you step outside of your house…

and look up into the beautiful blue sky… 

…and see this!!!!! image0010009All of a sudden, that smile comes back to your face and you say to yourself

”Now that’s a big ass balloon!!!”

…and things don’t seem quite so bad! 


Sky or Skies

In a post before this one, I titled it: Partly Cloudy Sky. Why am I pointing this out? Because what irks the shit out of me, is when the local and national TV, along with the radio weather forecasters, always, without a doubt, say “skies” when it should be “sky”. When we look up at the sky, we only see one sky, not two. So why do they insist on using the plural, instead of the singular word? Are they that stupid, that it is obvious that there is, and will always be one and only sky. Get with the program. That’s it.
