Have you noticed how moods are like the weather - one day we can be all sunny and happy, the next we can be leaden and gloomy? But are we our moods? Is this planet its weather?
I love the way that how we sometimes respond to the weather shows us how we are with our own moods. Take a day like today. It's overcast here, rather grey and gloomy. It's so easy to only experience the clouds. I have a friend who hates the winter and days like this. All she sees are the clouds and they make her life miserable for around 4 months of the year.
But up there beyond the clouds the sun still shines. Beyond our more gloomy moods our soul and joy still shine. I find that even on a gloomy day if I remember that and connect with the sun above the clouds my own internal clouds dissolve away.
Weather is just weather, it passes. Moods are just moods, they pass. We can help them along if we want to. What we focus on becomes our reality.
