I didn't meditate today. Every now and then, I take a day off from practice. I want meditating to be a choice, not something I do on auto-pilot. In this, I am practicing a little recursion, being mindful about my mindfulness.
Skipping a day here or there reminds me how much I get from practice, how much I benefit. And yes, it also reminds me how much I need it. I am not as centered on days I skip. I am, for lack of a better term, crankier. I have more hard edges. I don't move as softly or easily thru the world.
Tomorrow, I will go back to the cushion, with a renewed sense that it is what I want to do, what I need to do, what I should do.
