    1. that is a good point. I think maybe that is just the human mind, what is peaceful and relaxing one minute can seem boring, or anxious the next. I’d like to work on mediation because even in stillness I find my mind wandering

      1. I did that before. When I tried to concentrate to pray silently, I ended up thinking of my “to do” list. I tried so hard to pull my mind back. I’m taking yoga, try to learn to relax, and give permission for my mind not to be busy. I’m still learning to be still and not to feel anxious.
