What do you see when you stare at the sky? Many fail to appreciate this breathtaking scenery enough, perhaps because there is no time afforded to them to stop and stare at the marvel and security above them. Here are some things those who can take a moment to pause and stare at the sky can understand.
1. You understand there are no boundaries
By staring at the sky, you find out that really there are no boundaries or limitations. You can see that there are no borders in space, time or gravity; that beyond this planet of ours there is a huge space of experiences unopened and unrevealed.
2. You are reminded of how small they are
Staring at the unknown yet massive sky with clouds rolling by, way past the trees and deep into the stars, you are reminded of how small they are. You know while you are inconsistent or uncertain, the sky and nature offers all the certainty and magnitude that is needed for the planet to keep on going.
3. You can stare at and believe in beauty
What is above us is beautiful: the rainbows, the golden sun, the orange new moon and the stars all make the sky awesomely beautiful. In the sky you can conceal yourself in beauty, hope and solace.
4. You can find some perfection away from the world we are
According to Buddha, “When you realize how perfect everything is, you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky.”
When things around us look so unclear, fuzzy and disorderly, we can look above and see some awesomeness, magnificence and something to remind us that there can be a better direction in which you are going and things can turn out perfect.
5. You are aware of their history
You know that to our present there is a past. The sky reminds us of our past and where we are coming from. When you stare at the sky you see a history of places and times before you. You can see beyond where you are right now and peer towards where you are coming from.
6. You can ask questions
Somehow the sky fills us with amazement and wonderment. Staring at the sky gears you to asking questions and watering your curiosity. Perhaps because you cannot get enough of it or because it always changes or because it is a door to a universe. While staring at the sky you just have to ask questions.
7. You can embrace freedom
Staring at the sky restores your hope and makes you connected to nature. Staring at the sky slows you down and offers you a choice and chance to take a deep breath to expand your soul and embrace freedom.
8. You know the best things in life are free
It doesn’t cost anything to find that solace and peace the sky offers you. The serenity and beauty it gives doesn’t need to be paid for. Everyone in the world, everywhere, has access to this marvel and can enjoy its abundance of space.
9. You want to make a wish
Everything around is finite. But not the heavens or space. It captivates the viewer and adds to the mystery above us. Somewhere in between we wish we are a part of its journey and that the sky can offer us a way out and take us to somewhere unknown, perhaps opening a door to several more connections and journeys.
10. You are put in the right perspective
You can see things the way they are, real and pure. Beyond what we see on the media or what we are bombarded with by technology. Rather with the sky you can pu things in the right perspective and find some fun in doing this.
