Open Sky A Meditation Poem 6-15-2019

The open sky above is empty of disturbance

It holds clouds, birds and thought

They all pass through without leaving a trace

There is no change to open sky as it is not solid or fixed

 

Just as a mirror is empty of its own self image

Open sky is whatever it is in each moment

Empty

 

As a mirror can only reflect what is in front of it

Open sky can only reflect what passes through it

 

Mind is like open sky

Mind itself is open

It only reflects what comes to its attention

When mind appears to be disturbed it is merely like clouds passing by

Allow the breeze to pass and become clear and joyful again

 

The sun is always shining above the clouds

 

Be the sun

Be joy
