In India, there is a method of catching monkeys. Food is placed in a pot with a small hole in it. When the monkey puts its hands in to grab the food, it tries to take its hand out, but cannot. The monkey starts to be filled with immense fear because it thinks there is something in the pot holding its hands from getting out. It doesn’t realize that all it has to do is open its hand and let go of the food and it will be able to remove its hand from the pot. If we let go of what we hold onto, we would be free as well. ~ The Daily Guru
