Monkey Mind (n.) - As you begin to do a meditation practice, you will notice that your mind has the tendency to just chatter away. You may be constantly planning, ruminating, justifying, thinking about last week's TV show, and on and on. This inner dialogue does not often stop. It leaps from topic to topic like a monkey from branch to branch in a tree. The name we give to this often mindless mental chatter is called "Monkey Mind."
