Can you think of a time when you read a few pages of a book then realized you didn’t remember anything? Where was your mind? Or a moment when you were engaged in conversation with someone but realized you had not listened to what the other person was saying yet you seemingly heard everything they said? The mind has a tendency to wander off, sometimes to the past or future taking us away from the present moment.
