I began meditation practice decades ago. While it sustains me, I admit there’s been times when I’ve let it go.
Always I see how much it sustains me when I forego the practice. In meditation nowadays, I breathe. I watch. Being ADD, many thoughts pass by but over time, they drift into the mists.
I am well aware of my brain’s proclivity toward monkey mind. I’ve come to realize that seems to be part of having one. It likes to think, ponder, wander… However just because “it” likes to do those things, who is in charge?
“The Truth is realized in an instant; the Act is practiced step by step.”
