Mindfulness metaphor

I’ve found this to be a good metaphor for practicing mindfulness 24 hours a day.

The actual practice is that whenever your mind wanders you gently bring your attention back to your breath. An important point is that just as you wouldn’t get angry at the spoon, you also don’t get angry at yourself for becoming less mindful; you just return your focus to your breathing.

(Sorry I don’t remember which book I saw this in at the moment.)
