Buddha called our ego a drunken monkey. For you see when ego is running the show, everything is blurry and we stumble and don’t think clearly. We can’t talk too much and we can be inconsiderate of others. Since a monkey’s mind operates at a 2 year old level, we also tend to throw temper tantrums. The moral is keep your ego sober.  ~Sherry Petro-Surdel
