We have all heard how beneficial meditation can be, not just for our spiritual life but for the stress of life.  Many say they just can’t meditate, their mind is just so busy.  There is a reason meditation is called a practice.  It takes practice.  Practice requires persistence and repetition.  I suggest you start with five minutes a day of sitting still, focusing on a point of interest.  It could be a flower, a candle, a spot on the floor.  Nothing more.  Practice where you are at this moment and you will develop the desired skill.  ~Sherry Petro-Surdel
