monkey minds

by lillythehtcat

ever since discovering that you people had monkey minds..i have been quite fascinated by the concept..sooooo..i have done a little research..here is some of what i have found..

Buddha described the human mind as being filled with drunken monkeys, jumping around, screeching, chattering, carrying on endlessly. We all have monkey minds, Buddha said, with dozens of monkeys all clamoring for attention.

whoa..

Buddha said, if you will spend some time each day in quiet meditation — simply calm your mind by focusing on your breathing or a simple mantra — you can, over time, tame the monkeys. They will grow more peaceful if you lovingly bring them into submission with a consistent practice of meditation.

I’ve found that the Buddha was right. Meditation is a wonderful way to quiet the voices of fear, anxiety, worry and other negative emotions. I’ve also found that engaging the monkeys in gentle conversation can sometimes calm them down.

hey monkey mind..if meditation doesnt work there is always medication.

hey monkey mind..just because you think you are smarter than your neighbors only means you have lost touch with reality.. you need therapy.
