Today’s meditation focus was on adding a word to aid in our focus. I tend to like using short, simple words like “in” and “out.” This is useful to me as This cyclic attention helps to keep my mind from wondering off. My goal this week is to start using this off the cushion. When I run into things that spark an emotional response, can I try to name that event or emotion and use this as an anchor to keep me from going off in an unhealthy emotional direction? We shall see!
