Clouds of Awareness

Metaphorically, our events of mind are like clouds of awareness. They are symbolic of things indeterminate. Arising and passing in the clarity of sky- here and there- and often obscuring the light that illuminates the horizon. These clouds like our happenings of mind may appear familiar in form and content yet their essential nature remains elusive. We reach to grasp these “clouds” of awareness only to find ourselves entangled in their impermanence.

As human beings we remain fascinated by clouds, because in their shape-shifting inexactitude, their unpredictability in movement, their openness to the world, their “empty” nature, clouds seem to defy the solidity we try relentlessly to reify in our lives.
