Cloudy Days And Minds

a: Mindfullness ~
b: viewing clouds from the sky

What: "Mindfulness is like viewing clouds from the perspective of the sky, simply noticing them arising and passing through without any sense of them being good or bad clouds. They are just clouds. Mindfulness creates a space in which we can see things as they are, separate from our reactions to them. By creating this space and allowing us to see the truth of our lives in each moment, we develop a clear seeing and a wise understanding of how to respond."
