In meditation, we often talk about taming the "monkey mind." Unlike the images of a chimp swinging smoothly from branch to branch, in the first few days of silence, my mind seemed more like a rabid baboon lashing out at anything it can get its hands on.
“Our life consists of small deliberate choices & actions. Like beads on a string, they add up and define us. To create a life we LOVE, those small choices & actions must be inspired by our TRUE desires, our desired feelings.” - Katya Nova
