No one curses the sky for the clouds.
Sunday I had the terrific opportunity to attend a hot yoga class with my friend Jessie. As the yoga instructor was encouraging us to settle our thoughts, she reminded us that it is natural for our minds to race. She told us to be kind to ourselves as we rein in our “monkey minds,” consoling us with the idea that, “No one curses the sky for the clouds. Your thoughts are like those clouds; they are just passing through. Bring your mind to your center and breathe.”
In the spring it is easy to find our minds wandering. We are often easily distracted and lose our intention.
If you can find time today, let your thoughts be like the clouds and celebrate their ability to flow easily into your perspective and move on as a new idea flutters your way. Once you have taken time to enjoy all those clouds of thought, find the one you want most to take hold of. Make that thought your intention.
By choosing your focus from all those available to you, your intention will have greater meaning and your purpose will be sure to stay true.
