Have you noticed that the blue sky is an inspiration for happiness? Look up at the sky over a matter of days and watch the clouds. You’ll notice that on sunny days, the sky is bright blue. But the clouds continually take on different shapes and colors. They are constantly moving and changing.
The clouds are just like your mind, just like reality. They move and change. So the goal is to keep your focus on the constant—the blue sky. Then you will know that your thoughts don’t matter. Whatever you worry about is just a passing cloud.
The Chinese say, “Over every man’s head is a blue sky.” Can you see it?
