When you’ve strayed from the path, the next step is simple: begin again.
One of my favorite lessons from meditation is the opportunity to simply begin again. Inevitably during your practice, you will experience a moment when you realize your mind is wandering. That moment of awareness is the perfect opportunity to refocus and try again.
This same opportunity exists in life. Look for those moments of awareness and seize them. You always have a choice about what to do next.
