Heavily Meditated and Thankful

Is successful meditation a perfectly still mind? Perhaps not… I successfully meditate when I observe my thoughts in the moment and decide to be kind, instead of flying into a rage. I shamelessly admit that my mind still wanders from thought to thought like a wayward, curious child, when I meditate. The elegant meditation byproduct that I have created at 50, with over 20 years of meditation practice, is a robust self-compassion and the ability to disarm my inner critic.  I speak directly to the critic and thwart the negative chatter.
