Cohabiting with a Monkey — Dec 14, 2015

living with an apeHumans are sparks of Divine Love inserted in the bodies of monkeys. Monkey minds are controlled by greed (lust) and fear. (How many of our thoughts fall into these two categories?) If we could separate from these thoughts, we would know our true identity. Humanity could unite in our Divine substratum, Love and Truth, which I believe is Jesus’ message and God’s Plan.

I have a confession to make. I’ve been living with a monkey for most of my life.
I call him “Curious George.” (He is very curious to me.) We’re an odd couple. He is always posturing and foraging. I try to keep him in check.
His vulgarity is a constant embarrassment. It seems that at a young age, his mind was corrupted (programmed.)
When he sees a beautiful female reporter on TV, he doesn’t see a human being doing a job. He doesn’t listen to the info. He is too busy undressing her. This is “sex-obsessed George.”
When his best friends suffer some misfortune, there is a tinge of satisfaction. This is “Schadenfreude George.” Or should I say, “Insecure George?”
Paradoxically, George is not a jealous monkey. He accepts that there are smarter, more talented, more hard-working monkeys who are more deserving than him.
At other times, I think of George not as a monkey but as an airplane. I am his pilot. I have to fuel him up at least three times a day, clean his cabin and empty his toilets. I change his oil about once a week.  Sometimes his batteries wear down so I give him a nap.
I sit in the cockpit in front of a computer screen. George wants a drink. George needs stimulation. George is always “wanting” something.
He is always trying to increase his store of coupons (called “money”) useful for getting the things George “wants.” If not that, he is checking his stocks, book sales, and twitter followers.
He also thrives on praise from other monkeys and gets quite angry if they act like, well ….monkeys!
