How Intention and Energy Support Concentration
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.
