Meditation Quote 58: “You are the sky. Everything else is just the weather.” – Pema Chodron

By on June 18, 2014

Our mind can feel like a raging storm at times, and at others like a joyful sunny day. Meditation allows us to travel up above the clouds on those dark days, and observe the stormy weather from a better vantage point.

I love how Pema Chodron puts it in her quote:

“You are the sky. Everything else is just the weather.”
– Pema Chodron

When you sit down to meditate, it can be hard to silent the mind. Something to focus your attention on, like the breath, helps us to restrain the mind to a single focus and with time the thoughts will diminish.

So if your inner self, that you are connecting with in meditation, is the sky – the weather is everything else (like thoughts, emotions, distractions, etc) that you can observe from this inner point.

And in those moments of stormy weather Pema’s quote can serve as a great reminder of the fact that we always have the cloudless sky within us – we just need to clear the clouds to allow it to shine.
