I imagine all of us have tried meditating at one time or another and gave up, because it can be so hard to do! Establishing a routine of setting aside time and intention around being still and in the presence of God is a huge challenge for most of us — until it becomes who we are, rather than something we do. And those of us who have tried it, even ever so briefly, often experience fleeting moments of peace and calm and we often will notice that the day unfolds differently, even if the whole time we were meditating seemed filled with annoying thoughts that seemed to just get in the way.
There are now many Apps which can help us establish and enter deeply into a meditation practice. I’ll highlight two here, but if you have suggestions, please let Mother Barbara know. She’d love to include the resources that have worked for you!
