Monkey Mind 3.

This is a remarkable video clip with narration by Alan Watts. I am sharing with my readers as I found it very topical.

    Interesting. I relax and stop thinking in some cases by watching popcorn movies – no thought required. Sometimes I listen to certain kinds of music. Classical is great for me – no thought required. Viscous circles are rarities for me but they do happen.

    • My regular meditation routine has enabled me to be alert and drop unwanted thoughts when they crop up. It has also given me greater focus on whatever it is that I do at the moment.

  3. The video doesn’t describe me. As I’ve recently written, I seldom have problems with monkey mind. My life gives me plenty of chances to practice focusing my energy and my attention. 🙂

    i have learned to love early morning and the later blue hour of the day both.
    i have times then that I sit quietly. no music. no tv or computer. it is wonderful.
    it does require if at all possible being near a window… and feeling the fresh air.
    and if it is raining… so much the better! it is like food and drink for me.
    it seems to be that necessary.

    Interesting, I guess. I decided a long time ago not to worry about those things I can do nothing about and for those things I can do something about, I don’t worry, because I am doing what I can to address them.

  6. I do have a monkey mind from time to time -but I often also have just solitude – as in sitting quietly but doing some different…often that is when ideas come to me, stuff that needs solving – a solution arrives…

    today whilst I was out wandering about as I have a habit to do – an solution arrived on an object that used at the other house under very different circumstances but in a way for the same reason – but here the object that has a kind of clamp on it – wouldn’t fit anywhere that seems like the right place!

    Today, and as I type it’s clamped onto something….something I didn’t have in the other house – whether it works from what I need remains to be seen…
