Fickle mind wastes away precious life - Need to educate monkey mind
Human mind formed by experiences of the senses which are often incidental and no proper and adequate sensory training is provided leading to cognitive development. Consequently, mind becomes fickle and greedy of gratifications.

Often, outcomes of the fickle mind are full of strife. Some spiritualists have equated a fickle mind with a drunken monkey mind.

Mind needs to be educated with its proper cognitive development through creative and generative thinking practice to turn mind into intellect and wisdom.

Here are a few haiku to read and reflect on:

Fickle foolish mind

Goes after gratifications -

Potentials suffer.


All sensual pleasures -

All kicks of the fickle mind

Turn into sorrows.


Avoid sense objects

They provide momentary joys

Like sweet honey traps.


Mind left to itself ?

Uneducated and untrained

Lands you into strife.


Educate your mind

To strive, struggle, endure pain

For long run real gains
