Monkey Mind

In the meditation side of yoga, we have something that we like to call monkey mind where we can't quiet the mind.  Imagine a monkey swinging from vine to vine to vine to.....ok you get the picture.  Well it's been a combination of writer's block/monkey mind and being off the grid for a week that I haven't written.  so I thought I would share some words of wisdom.  Be back in form soon.  Blessings...and just breath.

It is I who must begin 
It is I who must begin.
Once I begin, once I try --
here and now,
right where I am,
not excusing myself
by saying things
would be easier elsewhere,
without grand speeches and
ostentatious gestures,
but all the more persistently
-- to live in harmony
with the "voice of Being," as I
understand it within myself
-- as soon as I begin that,
I suddenly discover,
to my surprise, that
I am neither the only one,
nor the first,
nor the most important one
to have set out
upon that road.

Whether all is really lost
or not depends entirely on
whether or not I am lost.

~ Vaclav Havel ~
