This Servant reminds us to keep life simple.
When The Monk appears in a reading it can be a sign that The Querent is overloading their life with too much “stuff” and the best course of action would be to simplify their life a bit.
The Monk calls for silence, calm, relaxation and time away from the rat race. The Monk suggests Meditation, introspection and contemplative exercises designed to slow you down and focus on the now.
The Monk suggests that a period of quiet and calm may be the best medicine for what ails The Querent. Quiet time without TVs or Mobile devices or the internet may be in order, along with walks in nature or doing things that you enjoy just to enjoy them – not to learn, not to better yourself, not to get ahead – just for enjoyment and relaxation.
The Monk asks the Querent do they need all the “stuff” that they have surrounded themselves with or could they let go of some of it?
The Monk can be used any time you want to enter into a period of peace, calm or simplicity. A very useful Servant to keep in your Meditation area and a quick prayer or offering before your Meditation practice can be beneficial.
If life is getting a bit too much or complicated for The Operator, then an invocation of The Monk can be very useful to aid in getting life more simple and quiet.
The Monk is very useful in banishing rituals to rid the Operators life of needless baggage.
