Only Seeing My Thoughts

"What does this think about that?
Nothing thinks about anything.
Does the earth have consciousness
of its stones and plants?
If it did, it would be people. . .
Why am I worrying about this?
If I think about these things,
I’ll stop seeing trees and plants
And stop seeing the Earth
For only seeing my thoughts...
I’ll get unhappy and stay in the dark.
And so, without thinking,
I have the Earth and the Sky."

- Fernando Pessoa (1888 - 1935)
