Pearls of Wisdom
The Fluffiness of a Cloud
They look like wisps of cotton hung high up in the sky, the white color meshing with the blue background; they form and dissipate, appearing to vanish into the blue. Clouds can be some of the most beautiful objects our planet can offer us, and one of the most overlooked. Clouds can forms pictures or ideas, they function as a sort of projective test, when we see clouds we can ourselves and our thoughts in them, we “project” our emotions and ideas onto them. We see animals and objects in those clouds which are pictures for understanding ourselves. Clouds can also bring about change in the form of storms and snow, “the clouds are rolling in” some of them say, we can see the front moving in bringing with it rain or snow, vital rain or snow, the clouds are the seeders of the earth, the watering can for the crust, just as they are seeders, they for us, are messengers into understanding ourselves.
1. When was the last time you spent a few hours trying to distinguish what the clouds are presenting to you, what did you see in them? Is this what you see in yourself?
2. Just as the clouds appear and disappear, so will you appear and disappear in this world, how do you feel about that?
3. If clouds are the water-bearers for the earth, what are you trying to “seed” or “grow “in your present life?
