      there are a million ways into the tar-pits of rumination, and no reliable ways out.


      I've been reading and loving David Cain for over two years. His writing is clear, approachable, easy to read, and practical.

      I have read (and written) a bunch about how I differentiate between rumination (focusing on some point/s in the past/future) and meditation (focus on the point that is right now) but it's not the kind of thing that you learn once and that's that. On the contrary, this kind of stuff is always a challenge, always worth practicing, and, thus, always worth reading (and posting) about. I hope some of you enjoy it!

        I really liked this piece. It seems rumination is part of the human condition. This is a good way to try to manage it.

      This is a sensible way to recognize an overly busy mind. I’ve been meditating for over a month now, and I have to say it’s been helpful in quieting some of the chatter. This framework might make the most sense outside of a formal meditation practice?
