“So, at the beginning, you might want to stay with the breath, or use it as an anchor to bring you back when you are carried away. Try for a few years and see what happens”
Jon Kabat-Zinn, Wherever you go, there you are. Mindfulness meditation in everyday life.
“Use the breath as an anchor to tether your attention to the present moment. Your thinking mind will drift here and there, depending on the currents and winds moving in the mind until at some point, the anchor line grows taut and brings you back”.
Jon Kabat-Zinn, Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life
“There are many ways to come back to the here and the now and touch life deeply. But they all involve mindful breathing, If we´re anchored in our mindful breathing, we can practice anytime. Otherwise we risk missing our lives, our lives that are lived in the here and now”.
