Sogyal Rinpoche on Monkey Mind

Rigpa Daily Glimpse:

When people begin to meditate, they often say that their thoughts are running riot and have become wilder than ever before. But I reassure them and say that this is a good sign. Far from meaning that your thoughts have become wilder, it shows that you have become quieter and are finally aware of just how noisy your thoughts have always been. Don’t be disheartened or give up. Whatever arises, just keep being present, keep returning to the breath, even in the midst of all the confusion.

~ Sogyal Rinpoche

Look for that space between thoughts. That is where peace resides.
