drunken monkey mind
Did you know that there are 4 steps of thinking that you should have been taught?
Have you ever even thought about thinking? It’s probably the last thing on your mind, huh?
It seems crazy to me that something we do all day everyday is so thoroughly ignored and misunderstood.
I mean, shouldn’t we have been taught how to think in, let’s say, first grade – if not sooner?
NOTE: This series of posts about the 4 steps of thinking contains useful information about the minding process that we all should have been taught and does not contain a bunch of established, useless, scientific, psychological bullshit (nor does this blog).
Anyway, it is what it is. But, that’s part of why I started this blog and career; because it took me sooooo many years of research and meditation to discover much of what I wish to share.
So, the first of the 4 steps of thinking is just normal thinking. I like to call it “freestyle thinking” because it differentiates it from the other steps of thinking and sounds much better that “drunken monkey mind thinking”.
Freestyle thinking is characterized by its lack of focus, direction and most importantly lack of conscious control.
It is also characterized by its immense waste of energy.
Other important points of note are that it involves movement and time (you’ll see the importance in later posts).
Because you are extremely familiar with freestyle thinking and everything becomes much clearer when you understand the other three steps, I won’t beat this dead horse anymore.
You can read more about freestyle thinking, contemplation and more in my FREE Report Greater Powered: The Blueprint for Manifesting Your Unimaginable Dream Life.
In the next post, I’ll discuss the second step of thinking: contemplation
Are you tired from your drunken monkey mind going 90 mph 24/7?
Monkey mind is a Chinese or Buddhist term used to describe an “unsettled; restless; capricious; whimsical; fanciful; inconstant; confused; indecisive; uncontrollable” mind, according to Wikipedia.
Absolutely! We all know what it is.
And why does this stupid monkey mind seem to be nocturnal? Go to sleep dammit!
Furthermore, most people suffer with drunken monkey mind their entire life and never learn how to control or stop it.
However, the solution is simple, consciously turn off your mind and you’ll have peace. Plus, you’ll also experience joy from your newly found freedom.
How to consciously turn it off you mind is something you were probably never taught; if you are like me and most everyone else.
So, if you don’t know how to stop it, then you are doomed to continue suffering with the noise, activity and the other pains of an un-mastered mind like feeling crappy, uninvited and unintended problems and unfulfilled goals, dreams and desires.
Above all, you don’t want spend your life like that, do you?
Of course not! So, do something about it…
But what? You ask.
Meditate! That’s how you learn to control the beast. And, with practice it gets easy.
I explain meditation, how to meditate and other mind mastery techniques in my FREE Report Greater Powered: The Blueprint for Manifesting Your Unimaginable Dream Life.
Read the blueprint if you want to master your mind and/or create a better life quickly, easily and with minimal effort. It’s amazing!
Additionally, Personal coaching is a great way to accelerate your results and finally tame your drunken monkey mind, but the blueprint will work well too.
