148. monkey mind

after spending days with the hanuman langirs, i question the old cliché

a monkey’s mind is more calm and present than a frantic human’s mind caught in the rat race (i question that one too)

it is the human mind that is typically always jumping from one thought to another

getting stuck in the past, or worrying about the future, one is unable to attain stillness

but if you remain in the present moment, your thoughts and actions become clear, calm, collected

love, light and joy then come to you, emanate through  you, become you

love is what you really are

everything else is an illusory obstacle

let the illusion go

let love in
