Yesterday was one of those days. Bad/busy days with a million things to do and a million things that went wrong...I kept a positive attitude and was really evenly keeled through it all. Well, last night I was talking on the phone with someone, and noticed the day might have been catching up with me...as in...I noticed i was becoming short and getting frustrated with what the friend was saying/suggesting. So, after a few minutes...I said " I'm going to have to go and get off off the phone, I got serious monkey moods right now and I feel them coming and going faster than a fireball". So I got off the phone, and it hit me what I said. Monkey moods??? Of course, I'm familiar with the 'monkey mind'...but would the comparison/analogy also hold water with our moods/emotions? Anyone ever heard this said?
Or did it just fly out of my mouth and kinda made sense? hahahaha
I will admit, it helped to label the awareness that was so present at the moment. Any thoughts/opinions/teaching on this.....??
