Wandering


'The key moment in the meditative process is when you realize your mind has been wandering. How you respond to the fact determines how you will relate to the meditation practice. If you react with frustration and judgment, you will strengthen those qualities. The secret to skillful meditation is bringing your attention back with great patience and kindness. In doing so, you cultivate patience and kindness along with mindful awareness.'

(James Baraz, Spirit Rock Meditation Centre)
