regaining lost focus

Recently, I started getting into meditation again. One of the surprising things about meditating is the number of failures you can have during a meditation.

Basically, even if your goal is to only stay still and not think, you’ll fail.

It’s a never-ending failure, yet it’s the practice that you need.

Usually when we fail we get burned up, but the whole point here is to start again and continue. What we do want is to learn how to get back on track.

Even if we fail, even if we didn’t achieve more than 1 minute focus.

Becoming angry is undoubtedly the opposite of what we need, and there’s no shame in failing. Failure, in this case, is healthy, and is part of the progress you need to endure to move forward.
