"It is good to live a life of an instinct, you have nothing to fear, no failures, no successes, just a gut and the beating of the tiny heart. Let it see the world, it said in its beat, like the haloed Damru of Shiva; come out and enjoy the maya of so called god; now this was one mystery i couldn't fathom; wait, there was one more, destiny. To these i added a third, Faith, not in these two, but in my Self...the Atma." From the book Life..love..Kumbh.. by Aporva kala

Mera dimaag aisa bhi daud raha hai... mere se bahut door. Is budaape mein can't keep up. I need something to stop it running... freeze it so that I can occupy it again. Maybe cold coffee will do the trick

It seems that you are not alone in feeling this way. Time for a dollop of Eastern wisdom?

...

Buddha described the human mind as being filled with drunken monkeys, jumping around, screeching, chattering, carrying on endlessly. We all have monkey minds, Buddha said, with dozens of monkeys all clamoring for attention.
