The Myth of the Monkey Mind - 20nov22
Elitist meditation teachers (not all of them villains, most of them fools) have convinced the unwashed masses that meditation consists of either mind-blanking, or unwavering concentration and that if anything else happens then we are a failure and have wasted time.
They tell us unlikely stories, convincing us that we have a, so called, “Monkey Mind” screaming as it jumps from branch to conceptual branch in the jungle canopy of our brain. And the sincere and tender-hearted who pay them heed are soon coerced to embark upon the arduous and destructive journey of repressing their own mindfulness. But that is not what the Buddha taught.
Let us conclude
