How To Control Our Monkey Mind

Like the undeveloped mind, the metaphorical monkey is always in motion, jumping from one attempt at self-satisfaction to another, from one thought to another.Mark Epstein

the monkey mind

How To Be Still…

I go among trees and sit still.
All my stirring becomes quiet
around me like circles on water.

Wendell Berry


It is the way to our center. Our center is where Now, our being-ness, intersects with eternal reality. It’s our source for solace, fulfillment, as well as inspiration.


Today I AM still, right here and right now. I AM full with truth, goodness and beauty. Life is good as is. All is well…

How To Soar!

Even when the air currents are ascending, no bird can soar except by outstretched wings.  – The Urantia Papers

who are we?

This quote is inspiring on two fronts!

1) That there is a Universal (or Life) current which we can attach ourselves to, which will take us to wherever we need to go.

2) And that we must make the minimum effort required to participate in that Universal program!

To connect with this Life source meditation helps tremendously. Meditation Tip #2: Sit down (at least thrice a day or when you need to feel the calm), close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths. The breaths should be long drawn, held for a few seconds and then exhaled slowly. This relaxes the body and starts to relax the mind. Breathe naturally now. Put your full attention on your breath. Watch and experience the breath as it goes in/out. You might lose track and get lost in a thought. Notice this too. And then put your attention back on the breath. Practice for 5 minutes!


I AM ready to soar! I listen and respond, I stay humble and I serve. Life takes me where necessary. I have no worries. I just sail along…
