I love this post from Nancy at Spirit Lights the Way and the freedom it suggests 🙂
Once upon a place and time, a monkey flew through the jungle, clinging and swinging from vine to vine.
Ignorant of his true nature, he clung to the belief that he could fly only when swinging and clinging from one vine to the next.
He swung as he clung and clung as he swung.
Afraid to “let go.”
Until the day he woke up and remembered who he was.
No longer attached to the vines and entwined beliefs that had held him back, he found his wings and soared.
Like a flying monkey, the Mind swings from thought to thought until we wake up and “let go.”
No longer attached to stories about the past or future fears, we fly through the Eternal Now.
And live happily ever after on a moment by moment basis.
Aah . . . that’s better!
