Practice is Reining in the Mind

Each day we sit on our cushions we keep awareness alive.

As Monkey Mind mutters, chatters and stews
As Inner Critic paints harsh judgements
As Gremlin bullies ourselves and others
We sit, settle and train our minds.

We rein in our minds
With wholehearted determination and curiosity.
We continue coming back to the breath.
We continue coming back to this moment.
We continue being here now.

No negotiation.
