Everything else-situations, difficulties, emotions, feelings are like the weather and come and go. Do you associate yourself with the ever-changing weather or do you associate yourself with the endless expansive sky? We forget that nothing lasts forever and jump headlong into the stories that we tell ourselves based on the weather. Another way is to understand the impermanence of the weather and not get carried away by it, choosing instead to become aware and dwell in the vast sky.
