The Wisdom of Monkey

Bear guided me to meet Monkey. We were in a forest and Monkey appeared next to me. I saw an opening in the trees ahead of me and something was moking there. It was an energy field that kept spinning around, stopping, and opening. Then it would start spinning again. Each time it would open a white monkey would walk out and do any number of things.... climb trees, swing around from vine to vine, make all sorts of noises and so on.

I asked Monkey what it ws that I was observing and he said, "You have heard the expression Monkey Mind, have you not?" I responded, "Yes". "Well, this is it, he said. It’s represented by my spinning tail in the symbol. It spins around and around until a thought catches your attention and you begin to follow it all through the trees and swinging around in the sky. There is nothing wrong with thoughts, but even Monkeys come down to the ground. We don’t spend all our time in the trees. It’s about finding a balance. We can teach you this." He kept directing my attention to the symbol. "Look at my hands, one up, one down. This is the balance I speak of. I am seated allowing for the Earth current to rise within me and you are in my throat so I may teach you the value of communication. In our Monkey society, everything is communicated, we all know everything that is going on and we all know whose boss. We eat together and sleep together, sit together and nurture one another. For those of you who spend a lot of time in your minds we can teach you to balance this with simple, grounding acts such as these. If we come to you, perhaps you are not communicating your ideas enough and grounding them. For those of you who we visit, meditation will serve you well, to learn to quiet the mind and the ego. Come speak with us and see what it is we can teach you."
