    The the idea of renouncing all attachment to relaxation in order to get to deep relaxation brings up mixed feelings and thoughts for me. I'm skeptical about any idea being away to relaxation and peacefulness. Renouncing is more than an idea. Renouncing attachment is something worthwhile to help one be aware of what is. The idea sounds great but I sometimes think if I had one more and better idea, peace, harmony and relaxation would arise. Noticing that one is attached to ideas rather than action and peaceful attitudes may be worthwhile. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to respond. You and all your readers have my gratitude.
