So often we get lost in our thoughts and emotions and forget that they are just a product of our conditioning. Things we learned since earliest childhood from our caregivers and our society. And often we think this is who we are. What defines us. But they are just passing guests like clouds in the sky. Some may be frequent guests because we attache to them so deeply that we thinkg we are that thought, that emotion. But if we just see them for what they truly are, they, too, will come and go. What is left is a clear sky, a blank canvas on which we can choose to paint something else.
