So often the mind is referred to as a “monkey.” So often, one begins a spiritual practice or a meditation practice and is advised to learn to control that monkey mind.
Let’s not be so hard on the mind.
The mind is there to serve us. The mind is designed to nurture us.
The mind is a companion that truly desires guidance from the soul.
The mind yearns to meditate.
The mind is our precious gift from our Creator. The mind has been abuse, neglected and polluted.
The mind can heal.
Relate to the mind with innocence, with gentle love, with compassion.
Relate to the mind with gratitude. Thank you, Mind, thank you!
