Have you ever noticed that when precipitation falls from the sky, we say “it is raining” or “it is snowing”? We could, if we had time to lollygag, say “precipitation is falling from the sky”. We certainly don’t say “the sky is raining.”
When the temperature rises, we say “it is hot out today” and when the temperature falls, “it is cold out today.” We don’t say “The air is hot” or “the air is cold.” I mean those phrases do occur but not really. And even if we did say “The sun is hot today”, we wouldn’t, in opposite conditions say “the sun is cold today.” That makes no sense. So “it” must be something else.
Though the Upanishads go to great lengths in explaining, tell me: What is raining? What is snowing? What is hot? What is cold? I am not asking you for the definitions of those terms. I am asking you to consider what is doing those things.
