For whatever reason, my head will not settle down this morning. Reading through the transcript, I see that we are to “weave mindfulness” into our day. This morning, my thoughts wove more thoughts into my meditation, and all that brought me back was when there would be a pause in the recording, and then she started talking again: hearing the words interrupting the thoughts, but not for long. Oh right, I’m meditating, I’d say and then I was gone again, and at some point there would be silence long enough for the new set of words to disrupt.
So I start the day with a not breath head, and I will see if I am able to be mindful. And I need to keep in mind that the point is to bring mindfulness to the day, not count how many times I lose it.
