As any dog trainer will tell you, there are "no bad dogs."

I was reflecting on that this morning as I sat in meditation and my mind went off, as it tends to do, sniffing eagerly in all directions. When I take my Jake out first thing in the morning and he's too excited to walk nicely, I give him permission to "go sniff."

Not a bad idea to do the same with the mind--allow it to go sniff for a little while before asking it to calm down and walk nicely in the direction you've decided.

There are, indeed, "no bad minds"--just minds that still could still use a bit of training.

Come to think of it, that would be a nice title for a book. Perhaps someone already wrote it!
