      Dear Astro,<br>First, please be gentle with your
      Self. No chastising, scolding, disgust, or anything
      negative. Have compassion for your Self and everyone
      everywhere. Secondly, as a health care worker, I have to
      suggest seeing a Physician. You have the signs and
      symptoms of depression, and this can be helped.
      Meditatively, I feel that Jnana Yoga may be appropriate for
      you. Here is your post excerpted:<br>"I've tried �I'm
      chanting� I'm okay�I stop� I can't�I also feel� I can't
      �I'm�I feel�I think�I'm�I've�I�I'm�I don't really
      know.It's confusing."<br>Jnana Yoga asks us to understand
      "Who am I?". We are directed to Witness our mind,
      body, and emotions, and silently, non-commentingly
      perceive their changes. We ultimately find that there is
      no continuing "I" that is truly our Real Self, and
      we become rid of the illusion that we are some
      continuing individual person. The reality of our real nature
      as a continuing consciousness, the Witness, becomes
      our moment to moment experience, we unite with all
      consciousness and truly live happily ever after.<br>I hope this
      helps.<br>Peace and blessings,<br>Bob

        Hi Lora,
        I would suggest visitng the website for the meditation society
        http://www.meditationsociety.com/. There are lots of techniques
        listed there. Try a few different ones until you find one that is
        easy to follow. Perhaps the first thing to try is to just sit in a
        quiet place, close your eyes, and focus on the sound and feeling of
        breath. Just breathe natually. Notice your thoughts, but don't hang
        onto them. Just watch them come and go. Watch and listen.

        I hope this helps. Meditation can seem difficult when you are first
        starting out (and even after you have been doing it a while for that
        matter). Just try it and be patient and perserve. The hardest part is
        the actual committment to sit down and do it. Just sitting quietly
        and watching your breath is more beneficial than you may imagine.

        Eve
