Being In The Present
How often do we go through our lives not being fully present? I know I do it myself......so many things to do and so little time. We are always in a rush, and can never seem to get everything done. Our minds continually race.....in my RYT (yoga teacher training) we always called that 'The Monkey Mind'.
The human mind is filled with crazy monkeys, jumping around, screeching, chattering, carrying on endlessly. We all have monkey minds, with dozens of monkeys all clamoring for attention. Fear is an especially loud monkey, pointing out all the things we should be wary of and everything that could go wrong.
If you will spend some time each day in quiet meditation — simply calm your mind by focusing on your breathing or saying a simple mantra — you can, over time, tame those crazy monkeys. They will grow more peaceful if you lovingly bring them into submission with a consistent practice of meditation.
Remember to take some time for yourself today ~
