Seeker of meaning,
Yesterday, during a time of extensive yet conflicting thoughts, I did something I hadn’t done in quite a while.
I laid down somewhere. Looked into the sky.
And stared at the clouds.
The clouds in the distance, the clouds nearby.
And I listened to my surroundings: the people, singing and laughing.
I focused on everything I could feel and touch and hear and see. No thoughts.
And after it was over, I began my thought process once again.
But the clouds had entered my mind, my thoughts.
And permeating my subconscious, the clouds enhanced my thought process.
So instead of stealing my time,
the clouds contributed to my success…
I feel like it was a necessary experience.

P.S. One of the underlying meanings here is the importance of relaxation for progress in life and projects. Times of relaxation are a time where ideas may come into one’s mind, as has happened to me in the past, and to prevent oneself from getting ‘burned out’ (this leads not only to inefficiency but may have long term negative outcomes). Of course, ideas may also be formed during times of intensity, but too much of this is not optimal.
It’s a metaphor.
The clouds/Staring into the clouds = relaxation (even if just for a few moments)
I won’t mention or explain the underlying meanings of what I write every time, but it should be very easy for you, the seeker of meaning, to figure it all out once I have fully shown how I think and how I write. All in due time, of course.
