I am one of those that my mind is constantly thinking, calculating, processing, anticipating or planning what is going to happen. That is MY monkey mind. It is a part of myself I have to consciously work to quiet. It never stops, but I can quiet it by just trying to not engage the thoughts. Let them pass like a bird flying by.
It's interesting that recently there has been a hummingbird that visits me during my meditation on my porch. It has only just started, but I have my eyes closed and I hear the buzzing of his wings. My brain thinks BEE!, so my eyes fling open and I jump a little, which scares him off. I am going to get a hummingbird feeder to encourage him to hang out here. I think that I must be giving off a good vibration for him to come so close.
Do you have a monkey mind? Do you have a wild pet that visits you?
