Feed your monkey mind before starting meditation!

Human head with closed eyes, half-smile and a face full of serenity and peace while keeping imperturbable even when having a monkey inside his head. The monkey’s opening the head, yelling, raising its arms and asking for a banana while feeling really upset.

The monkey mind is a concept in Buddhist teachings that describes our easily distracted, worry-prone, and constantly seeking mind. Meditation is a practice that helps us train our monkey mind to be calm, focused, and gain greater insight into our mind’s workings.

The image of a human head with a monkey inside represents the struggle we face in taming our monkey mind. The monkey is depicted as being upset and asking for a banana, which is a metaphor for our own cravings and desires. The message is that we need to address our distracting thoughts and desires before achieving inner peace and focus.

By using the image as a visual reminder, we can train ourselves to be more mindful of our thoughts and emotions throughout the day. It serves as a reminder to take the time to feed our monkey mind, to address our needs and desires, and to cultivate a calm and focused state of mind that is conducive to meditation and other forms of inner work.
