Blue Sky Meditation

A perfectly blue sky
hung overhead
all day long.

Something about such a sky
makes you wonder deep and wide.

Something about such a sky
makes you release yourself
just a little bit more
than you ordinarily do.

Something about a sky
without clouds
makes you carefree
and almost endless.

Something about such a sky
unfetters you
releasing you from yourself
and letting your heart float
like a bright red balloon
into the sky’s vastness.
And there
you disappear
and become the sky.

  1. Thanks Polona, Aurora, and Gautami. I appreciate your comments.

    Blue skies, to me, are magical. They fill you, and at the same time empty you. A sense of spaciousness is essential to grasping our spiritual nature, I believe.
