“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

So you think you’re having a bad day…
The bluebird carries the sky on his back.
– Henry David Thoreau
How do we know that the sky is not green and we are all colour-blind?
– Author Unknown
Like the sky opens after a rainy day we must open to ourselves… Learn to love yourself for who you are and open so the world can see you shine.
– James Poland
In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west, people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.
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.
While I was outside getting some air, I took this photo showing part of downtown, and beyond.
