What is the colour of water?
What is the state of your mind?
Water, like mind, is running sometimes like a crystal clear stream in the mountains. Then a waterfall brings down all the flow, the thoughts are falling like the water.
On other occasions the mind carries sorrows like little stones and sand and turns into a muddy river. No getting through, all cloudy and dirty. Then the thoughts are settling and it becomes clear eventually, or it turns into a deadly, poisonous pool. Thoughts are dying and becoming dangerous in such environments.
Sometimes small streams are carrying dead logwood down, and so does the mind. It might carry dead weight all along until it gets stuck on a river bank. Then the thoughts are flowing freely again, everywhere where they can.
No matter what the colour of your water is, it contains single drops. Each drop is an individual thought, which can be freed and evaporate to steam. Let your thoughts evaporate and create something new. Clouds in the sky are only water drops, but they are clear and fly free.
Don’t let your thoughts get frozen to solid ice, these are ideologies. No one wants the tyranny of single thoughts. We all want to fly.
