Clouds.. Freak me out.
When religion has ruined you to the point that you can't even watch a storm blow in. On my way home from work I noticed it was coming. I get home wait a while and go check it out after a loud rumble. (I used to love storms)
I look up and see this long flat cloud moving along.. And there's like.. This person cloud. Person cloud is just taking a stroll to another person cloud. Of course the religion shouts "he will come in the clouds!"
Now. Clouds freak me out. Yay!
I just can't seem to shake off this religion.

It is the battle-maidens coming to take the souls of warriors who die valiantly. Nothing to worry about Wink

RE: Clouds.. Freak me out.
It's just magical thinking. Just breathe and let it be. It would be the equivalent of reading something about clouds and magic in Harry Potter. Just because some people wrote it somewhere years and years ago does not make it truth. Do you know the Bible also says that God has storehouses of snow and hail? See the thinking of the time, these are the people who wrote about god coming in the clouds.

We see patterns where there are none. It's called apophenia. It's a human trait that we all have. Many people can look at the clouds and see people or animals. It's just your brain processing info. Your religious training is kicking in and along with apophenia, it is creating patterns where there are none.

People see all kinds of stuff in clouds and depending on which religion you believe in will depend on what you see.

If you're a Buddhist you'll see reclining Buddha's everywhere.

And then Hindu's see their god Shiva in clouds too

Here's what Shiva looks like in case you don't know.

So whatever you wanna see, that's what you're gonna see.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Clouds.. Freak me out.
*hugs* just keep reminding yourself it's just the anxiety. Just your body reacting to a stimulus. Nothing magical. Wink
