Labeling our thoughts as they arise as “thinking” and then returning to the breath is a brilliant tool for the mind to see it own activity clearly; it is mindfulness of mind.
You can use this tool on and off the meditation cushion. Try it the next time you’re in an argument or depressed or fall in love and see what happens.
