where is the “OFF” switch?

for most of my memorable life, I have had an active mind., always busy. my dad once told me that I think too much. I am guilty. I do. and it can be repetitive. (which to me, is a bad thing.)

in my early twenties, I went to a talk about Transcendental Meditation and at the end was given a mantra and sent on my way… I remember my mantra, but, can not profess to sit in meditation and use that mantra.

several months back, I came across this video of a Tibetan Monk who talks about the monkey mind., all the chatter…

have a listen, it has made meditation easier for me.

and the garden continues to grow…

I’m amazed at how quickly the dragon fruit are growing. This morning I added 1/2 of a purple dragon fruit that I had found at the store into my green smoothie. ┬áThis is what it looked like. It was delicious, with a gazillion little seeds. Wondering when my little wall of dragon fruit will begin to bear their own fruit?
