The Space Behind My Eyes.

I love the yoga class that I'm taking on Tuesday nights. It is about an hour and 15 minutes of stretching, breathing and relaxing. But at the end of the class our instructor leads us in a brief meditation that I am really struggling with. All is quiet, the room is dark, there is incense burning, I am feeling so relaxed. And then she starts telling us to close our eyes and "look at the space behind your eyes......see the colors, the shapes.....focus on the infinite possibilities of the beyond."
And instead of the infinite possibilities I immediately start visualizing Microsoft screen savers.....the black screen with moving geometric shapes, flying toasters, etc. It is like my mind is set on being silly and won't quiet itself. I want to learn how to meditate but I wonder if I'm capable of it.
