You Are the Sky. Everything Else Is Just the Weather – Pema Chodron

We are bigger than our circumstances. We are bigger than our labels. We are bigger than our past and bigger than our future.

When we recognize we are not what happens to us, but merely the ones who observes and who reacts, then we realize WE have control over our rainy and sunny days; WE have control of the severity of the storms which come to cause havoc in our lives. 

The sky will always be vast, forever expanding. This journey of life is the weather which colors this expansion with beautiful sunrises and serene starry nights; with deep gray clouds and a rainbow after the summer afternoon rain.  Look up and see, you are the sky and what you perceive and how you perceive is the weather.

  1. Lily,
    This is an amazing seed! It can be hard to remember, but you are exactly right! There will always be challenges, but we have to learn that we can still be stronger than them and get through them!

  2. Well, it’s been raining for too long…is all I can say.

  3. Very wise words. Stuff always happens… but one’s attitude? What you do about it? That is everything.

  4. Awesome post! Thanks for sharing.

    Be a blessing!
