I talked to a fellow yogini yesterday, who has been to Mysore, India. She said it gets really hot there, and mentioned sleeping with the windows open.
I asked, “Is that safe? You don’t have to worry about somebody coming into your place?”
“No”, she replied.
She told me I don’t have to worry about anyone breaking in, that it’s totally safe. She said most apartments have bars on the windows. She did give me a forewarning, though. She warned, if I get an apartment where there are no bars on the windows, I need to beware of the monkeys! She said the monkeys will come in through the windows and eat your food!!
Holy heck!! I’m thanking my divine for that forewarning! I think I would jump clean out of my skin if I were to awaken in the middle of the night to someone rummaging through my food, no matter who or what that ‘someone’ is! How would you even get a monkey out of your house?!
What would you do if you were to awaken in the middle of the night to the sound of someone rummaging through your kitchen, and then found a monkey there?!
