100 Words – Meditation Anxiety

My attempts at meditation are without discipline. I’ve got the sitting quietly part down pretty good and I’m very good at breathing. Then comes the clearing your head part. I start off good, letting thoughts enter my head and float away like clouds, passing through my consciousness barely acknowledged. Then a thought will catch my attention. An epiphany? Some great truth revealed? No, some trivial idea burlesqued into a story idea. The next twenty minutes spent pursuing the idea to usually unsatisfactory results. Then I realize what I’ve done, return to my breathing, but the moment for reflection has passed.
