Sometimes, people feel that it is very difficult to concentrate or focus on a task, job or goal or one’s work due to preoccupation with extraneous matters. It might be problems in relationships with colleagues, friends or family members or any other issue that is preying on the mind.
Such preoccupations pull our attention away from the matter in hand, thereby leading to drastic results. To develop the ability of concentration, one needs to train one’s mind and focus on the quality of thoughts.
Stabilising the digressive thoughts is nothing but concentration. When we concentrate on any pure thought, it starts to stabilise the mind, which brings peace of mind.
It is just like when we drop a coin in muddy water, we are unable to see the coin, but if we drop it in clear water, we can see the coin clearly. Here, it indicates that concentration is possible only when we have clear and positive thoughts, while futile and waste thoughts disturb the inner tranquility.
“The more we practise Raja Yoga Meditation, our ability to focus, judge and to concentrate increases; and this helps us to tackle different situations in our life.”
When the mind is silent, there is happiness inside and outside. It is a great asset and advantage to be able to silence the mind when its services are not needed.
This can be achieved through the practice of Raja Yoga Meditation, in which we concentrate on one thought: “I am a peaceful and powerful soul, receiving powerful energy from my loving Father, the Supreme Soul,” and thus, gain the concentration power.
When we concentrate on this one thought, other thoughts begin to slow down and thereby we experience peace and calmness. The more we practise Raja Yoga Meditation, our ability to focus, judge and to concentrate increases; and this helps us to tackle different situations in our life.
It helps us to think in a higher, concentrated way–thinking less and thinking powerful. Pure thoughts generate a lot of clarity, focus and spiritual force which helps to achieve success in life.
