Stop Your Mind’s Chatter

Mental Confusion

“That concert was exciting. Did I feed the dog?
This weather is depressingly cloudy today.
Has my daughter reached school safely? I really care
About who wins the election. I don’t know where
I put my driver’s license. That was a nice play
By the quarterback. Why is there such a dense fog?”

Many people experience the monkey mind.
It chatters on endlessly. Not even for one
Second can it remain silent. Out of control
It appears to be because you’re not feeling whole
But you can get a handle on how thoughts are spun
In your mind when with ultimate truth you’re aligned.

Here’s a technique that will put your mind well at ease.
Close your eyes. Watch your thoughts as they constantly flow
Through you mind but do not try to stop them and don’t
Get involved with them. Trust in your heart that you won’t
Think about your thoughts. Just think them then let them go.
They’re not worthy of your conscious analyses.

Now ask yourself one important question. “What will
My next thought be?”
Then wait for the next thought to come.

Keep on waiting. You may ask the question again.
“What will be my next thought?” Thoughtlessness happens when
You keep waiting. You will have gotten away from
All the chatter. Indeed your mind has to sit still.
