No matter how long you’ve been meditating, you will come to the point of attentional wandering. It is inevitable. It is necessary. Without wandering, there is no returning. Without returning, there is no attentional skill building. Practicing with the breath allows you to develop a loving and gentle return to your intention over and over again. Just like life. We fall, we fail, we make mistakes, we stumble over and over again. The loving and gentle return to our intention, both internal and external, is what matters.
