I have a friend who is passionate about yoga. The yoga philosophy weaves freely into her spirituality. She introduced me to the wonderful phrase, `monkey mind.` This is when your brain lacks focus, and thoughts are jumping from branch to branch with never a moment to stop and ponder.
We were sitting at the lake this weekend with some of our kids. My future son-in-law reached over to pull something from my hair. “It looks like a cob-web.” I chuckled, “you know it`s time to get up and move when the spiders start spinning a home around you!”
Cob-webs are stubborn little buggers. They laugh in the face of pressure washers aimed at cabin logs and window screens. Wrapped around a side mirror, they merely flutter in the breeze while barrelling down the highway.
A tired, lazy body is leaving me without inspiration today. There are no monkeys jumping around my mind, just cob-webs weaving their strands through stagnant thoughts. Hopefully they will catch a tasty morsel to chew on for tomorrow. 😉
What do you do to shake the cob-webs and regain your focus?
