MONKEY LESSONS

Taming my Monkey mind is a full-time jobTaming my Monkey mind is a full-time job

Don’t think of yourself as an ugly person,

Think of yourself as a Beautiful Monkey -Soojie

Always I wonder How we are different from Animals.

As you can see in the above photo ,the big monkey( I presume ,the teacher ) with its back facing us, seems to be busy teaching its first morning lesson to the students. You can also notice that three student monkeys are very attentive & disciplined and one monkey is a bit unhappy & restless .The baby monkey of course has a long time to go to learn the ropes.

This one reminded me of my school days ,where some students gel well with some teachers and not too happy with some other teachers even name calling etc.
I feel the whole thing depends on to what extent the teacher can ‘inspire’ his/her students.

CASTLE IN THE SAND

CASTLE IN THE 'SAND'
CASTLE IN THE ‘SAND’

“We are like children building a sand castle. We embellish it with beautiful shells, bits of driftwood, and pieces of colored glass. The castle is ours, off limits to others. We’re willing to attack if others threaten to hurt it. Yet despite all our attachment, we know that the tide will inevitably come in and sweep the sand castle away. The trick is to enjoy it fully but without clinging, and when the time comes, let it dissolve back into the sea.”
Pema Chodron

Anyhow castles in the sand reminds me of the popular number in 2005 by the band ‘Philosopher Kings’

Philosopher kings -Lyrics to ‘Castles In The Sand’

Built a perfect house in a perfect town
Dreamt a perfect dream and it all fell down
We held on tight like hungry lovers
Watched the day break from beneath the covers
Had to know for sure what it’s all about

Oh, this should be easy
Oh, just tell me we’re happy
Just building castles in the sand

I saw the naked light and it burned my eyes
Couldn’t look away no matter how I tried
I watched you explode when you think it’s over
And I burst in comin’ like a supernova
Had to track you down, had to find you out

Oh, this should be easy
Oh, just tell me we’re happy
Just building castles in the sand

And tides roll in, and waves get closer
The night was over
But we get stronger every time
We build our castles in the sand

Built a perfect house in perfect town
Dreamt a perfect dream and it all fell down

Oh, just tell me we’re happy,
Just building castles in the sand
Just building castles in the sand

Oh, just building castles in the sand
Just building castles in the sand

Number 7…The Magic Number !!

Sitting in the back seat of the car, the other day I was trying to take a photo of the Car Light trails with my HTC mobile.
To my surprise all the lights were resembling the Number 7 !!

Of course I am not sure of the Physics behind this ,but I can tell you about the Importance of the Number -7.

7-Skies,7-Heavens,7-Seas,
7 –Climes,7-Days,7-Dwarves,
7-Sins,7-yr old ( turning point in childhood development)
7-Colours in Rainbow,7-Petals of Rose,
7-Continents,7-Body Orifices,
7-Notes in the Musical Scale,
7-Sages of Hinduism ( Saptharishis)
7-Virtues,7-layers of the OSI model ( Computers )
Rule of 7 ( Business World too likes number 7 !! )

Any idea about – 7 Year itch ?

Looks like one can go on & on………

Peace Of Mind

Peace of Mind
Peace of Mind

At ‘Peace’ in Lord Vishnu’s Abode

  ” If you are depressed,you live in the past..
    if you are anxious, you live in the future..
    but if you are at peace…you live in the present “
Lao Tzu

What is ‘ Peace Of Mind ?’

Thesaurus Dictionary says- it is the absence of mental stress or anxiety.

Wikipedia talks of Inner Peace,referring to a state of being Mentally & Spiritually at peace with enough knowledge and understanding to keep oneself strong in the face of discord or stress

Being at peace is considered by many to be healthy Peace of mind is generally associated with bliss,happiness,and contentment.

But the question is how do you get the Peace Of Mind ?
