I was sitting in the sun, trying to recuperate from an upper respiratory infection. The sun was shining so brightly as I was comfortably sitting in a lounge chair by the pool at the retirement center where we live. All of a sudden it turned dark. I looked up at the sky. It was but a small cloud that had floated by to a place between my view and the sun. That small cloud made the whole area dark. Where did the sun go? It was still there, but hidden by the cloud. Then the realization came that this is how my ego works.
