Mostly, we don’t know what we are looking for in the exercises. When we work out on the treadmill at the gym we have a goal in mind – to lose weight, gain physical strength and stamina. Prayer and meditation are both spiritual exercises. Our spirit is somewhere at our center – a place of comfort, rest and peace. And, it is easy to get there.
