The inner critic

As I sit and follow breath, I find that I don’t chastise myself too harshly for chasing “bones” as Larry Rosenberg says in “Breath by Breath.” Sometimes, I’ll follow a story down a rabbit hole for who knows how many breaths, but I seem to always come out of it and come back to one breath. I find that I am much more judgmental of myself when I’m not meditating and I’m hoping that a regular practice will allow me to find ways of developing kindness more often during my day.

May all beings be happy ♡
