In honor of the upcoming Chinese New Year which began on February 8, 2016, I’m dedicating the 2016 Mandala of the Year to the Monkey. Each month we’ll explore a trait or symbol of the monkey to explore how we can incorporate it into our own lives.
For Section 6 we look at the monkey energy of witty.
We often hear the phrase “quit monkeying around” by serious-minded people when work needs to be done and where focused attention is required. However it’s been shown that taking a break for some play and fun time actually helps us be more effective with our more serious-minded work.
This month’s section inspires us to be more playful, to enjoy the simple pleasures of life, to have some fun once in a while…giving us permission to monkey around a bit.
Ponder this while coloring this month’s section of the 2016 Mandala of the Year.
