Some of us are worse than others (some people are really really really horribly negative) – but we all get periods of negative thoughts during the day, during the week, during the month…Why? Does it serve some evolutionary purpose? Perhaps cancer serves some evolutionary purpose too – but we still consider it a horrible disease, just like negative thoughts... View/Post Comments
Rocks – can they become computers? Well, maybe, with the right kind of software to make sense of all the senseless and chaotic activity going on inside a rock. Pretty interesting stuff. If cars are now able to self-drive, what will a rock be able to do in a few years? View/Post Comments
Monkey Brain vs Master Zen.
Who will win the fight – You, or Your Mind?
Monkey Brain, or Monkey Mind, comes from Chinese xinyuan and Sino-Japanese shin’en 心猿 and its literal meaning is “heart-/mind-monkey”. It’s a Buddhist term and means, “unsettled; restless; capricious; whimsical; fanciful; inconstant; confused; indecisive; uncontrollable”. We use it to express the uncontrollable and incessant stream of thoughts in our heads – Monkey Brain. Master Zen represents who we really are, underneath all the layers of negative thoughts and emotions. Master Zen is here to get us back on the right track, take control of our minds and make the mind an instrument to be used wisely, instead of a master that is using us, unwisely. At some point in the history of humanity we lost the ability to control our thinking and to control our minds, or perhaps we were simply born this way – and now it’s time to evolve into Homo Sapiens 2.0. The Monkey Brain has reached its pinnacle, and we’re at the brink of destroying humankind and planet Earth, our home – minds spinning out of control causing wars, pollution, extreme greed, anger, divorce, racial divisions and discrimination (to mention a few of what the human mind has accomplished)
We need to take back control of our minds, of our lives and of our destinies. We need to focus on all the beautiful and creative aspects of our minds, which means we have to become masters of ourselves, and not slaves to a Monkey Brain.
