Oh the Monkey mind ! Forever plotting and scheming about it’s next move, what shall I do , where shall I go , what will I do tomorrow, next week , next year , it never shuts up , it’s constantly babbling on about something.
Left to its own demise, it usually ends up in state of fear , fear of rejection, fear of death, fear of lack of abundance , fear of the unknown, fear of being alone, fear of what others think .
So how can we tame the monkey mind, how can we get it to shut up ! Well many try to shut it up with drugs ,alcohol and sex , all wonderful choices as long as they work , however they usually only offer temporary relief , a bad headache and an expensive tab at the end of the night.
But seriously what can we do, how can we quiet the inner chatter ? For some people there is no recognition they are even operating from ego , or physical mind, they are completely lost in there ego identity , they walk around completely immersed in there character , often to the detriment of their peace, happiness, joy.
For many it’s about being right , at all costs ! That being said we can all empathize with this plight , it is part of the human condition , we all have days when it just seems like we can’t turn the monkey mind off, we can find no peace , and of course the modern day , highly materialistic , fear based , paradigm we have created only exacerbates the problem.
