Mantra meditation without the brain’s “monkey noise”
“…As far as the Mahamantra goes, I have indeed found time to chant. I set aside an hour of time two nights ago to get as deep into the chant as possible, and it just didn’t work out. I find it intensely difficult to get past the chatter, the constant ‘monkey noise’ buzzing about in the brain. What can I do?”
A balance of spiritual push and pull
“How much is push and how much is pull? By push, I mean the conscious way we push ourselves towards spiritual development through our intellectual understanding of its necessity. By pull, I mean the natural attraction that draws us towards development. Both, I suppose are interwoven, but often I feel there to be a tension between the two.
Is there a proper balance?
