I think I am trying too hard today.
I think I will try to not try so hard.
Should I try to not try at all or try to try a little less?
How much trying is too much? How much is too little? I want to try to get this trying thing just right.
I want to try to figure out the signs that I am trying too much or too little.
I want to try to perceive things correctly.
I want to try to understand why all my efforts to not try too much or too little appear to be fruitless.
I want to try to do all of this without trying.
I think I should try to keep my head from exploding.
Maybe I should try to give up trying.
I think I will try that for a while.
Should I try to give up completely or just a little?
I will try to figure out how much giving up is just right.
Then I will try to give up just that amount.
Maybe I should try to create total silence inside my mind.
If I try really hard will my mind be totally quiet?
Or does quieting the mind require trying less?
Maybe I should try to let go completely.
If I let go does that mean I have to stop trying altogether?
How do I try to stop trying altogether?
Maybe I need to try to stop this chatter.
How do I try to stop this chatter?
I think I am trying too hard to stop this chatter.
I think I am starting to lose my mind.
I think I should try to start praying.
I will start now:
Is that an OK way to begin? Of course it’s OK.
Dear God, I humbly ask you…
Should I say ‘beseech’. Aren’t you supposed to say ‘beseech’ in a prayer?
Does it matter?
OK, Dear God, I humbly beseech you to…
What am I asking for?
Now I’m stuck.
Dear God, I need help.
Please help me.
