The sky can mean so many things. It is everything and it is nothing at the same time. From the earth, it looks like an unending hole, which we are inside, void of anything real. When I look up at the sky, I immediately think about the human mind. The differences between the emptiness inside our skull and above our heads are as shocking as the similarities. The sky reflects our minds in a lot of ways.
A clear, bright and sunny day can easily be connected to our mind when we are happy and everything in life seems to be going perfectly. There are days when the whole sky is covered with gray-white clouds which threaten something formidable. This could be the state of our mind when we are having a horrible day and all the thoughts that cross through our head are bleak and dark. But days where you are very happy or very sad are rare. The days when there is a little of both are much more common. These are the days when you are worried and you may have problems but that does not mean that you aren’t happy. Such days are also more common in the sky too. Mostly,when you look up, half the sky is cloudy and half is clear. This is an almost ironic description of our minds too.
When it rains, the clouds turn gray and the sky becomes dull. In the context of our mind, that happens when we come over with inexplicable sadness. This sadness may change into anger like the thunder during the rain or it may fade away leaving a little pain but no more trauma.
Another amazing similarity is that the sky is unending. It is higher and deeper that we can even imagine comprehending. It contains the most magical and the most terrible things. We can keep looking at it till the end of our sight. These are the attributes that we can apply to our mind as well. It is too, unending and deep. We can keep plunging deeper and deeper into it and loose ourselves completely. How everything in life is so closely connected to something else is not a coincidence, it is magic. And it is extraordinary.
