Hot head

The mind can be seen as the air filling the open sky.

Our mind is the air inside a hot air balloon (open at the bottom - so joined but separate)

The ego then is the flame at the bottom of the hot air balloon that stirs the mind up into the balloon.

Overly inflated, hot headed, big head, full of hot air... all make sense in this analogy.

I really like this analogy about the ego: hot air complicating things.
