Rule 12: Pet a cat when you encounter one on the street

  • Breathe. It works. Focus on your breathing, nothing else. Meditation practices are built on this alone.
  • Be present and mindful. Think about nothing else but the present. The past is gone. The future is not here yet. The present is all you have.
  • Slow things down. Your adversity dictates this. But to the extent possible, slow things down. What we think of as emergencies are sometimes not. We should not worry about tomorrow when today needs our attention.
