    […] The next time you do a sitting meditation, while focusing on your breath,  you will inevitably get lost in thought (Remember, that’s supposed to happen).  You’ll be planning, or day dreaming, or ruminating about bla bla bla.  The practice is to notice that we are thinking and return our attention to the breath.  What is often missed is HOW you return your attention to the breath.  It’s right there in the crux of that instant and you didn’t even see it.  And that response matters.  It’s easy to miss if you aren’t looking for it.  Right when your attention has strayed from your breath and you realize it,  ask yourself “what was the tone of that response?”  If it was “fuck, I’m thinking again!”  Then you might want to start working right here because you’re banging your head against the wall.  This might have been my very first “AHA moment” in meditation.  Be kind to yourself.  Be gentle with yourself.  Why so judgy?  Maybe that harsh response will begin to change just by shining a light on it.  Maybe you will find your attention and return it to your breath with a new kinder and wiser response.  Maybe you will respond “Welcome Home” because you found the space that was needed to find it (Thank you Tara Brach and Sharon Salzberg).
