Mind Fuel Daily was founded to help readers find inspiration and purpose in every day. We believe that each person is capable of finding his or her best life here, in the present moment, and our mission is to provide the spark that moves you to positive action and thought.

One of the benefits of meditation is that it allows us to become impartial observers of our own minds – through practice we learn to slow down and simply watch our thoughts happen, instead of reacting to each and every one of them.

And when we do this, says Buddhist nun and inspiring teacher Pema Chodron, we come to see that much of our mental activity is just like passing storms – here one moment, gone the next.

“You are the sky,” says Chodron. “Everything else – it’s just the weather.”

So the next time you’re flooded with thoughts, remember that they are just like clouds passing by, and nothing to get attached to.
