When you feel that you don’t know what’s happening, you can’t see beyond your own nose, will you be stuck like this forever … remember, everything is in flux. I like the metaphor: You are the sky. There are clouds in the sky, they are always moving, always changing shape. Sometimes there’s lightning that shakes and breaks things up. There is an airplane in the sky. It passes through a dense mass of clouds. There is no visibility at all. Then it emerges once again into a clear sky. You are the sky. Your emotions are the passing clouds and the lightning. Your awareness is the airplane passing through dense, intense moments that shake you up, then emerges once again into clarity. Everything is in flux, always and evermore. Buckle up and experience the ride.
