Learn to collect and unify the mind. As you develop your concentration practice, you access more energy and it becomes more available to your mindfulness practice. When you have energy and not equanimity, you will feel restless and worried. Equanimity without energy=sloth. We need a lot of energy for patience and persistence. Patience allows us to practice accepting what is. Persistence allows us to continue to start over.

Concentration is the ability to direct your attention and to sustain it so that it becomes collected and unified. When concentration and mindfulness are combined, you learn how to direct and sustain your attention on a single experience, rather than letting the mind jump from one thought or feeling to another.
