Improve Your Abilities Through Concentration


By calmly and quietly thinking through problems and situations one phase at a time, a resolve or answer will arise in your thoughts. When you act quickly on a problem or expect to immediately understand all the ramifications you may too easily give up when there is not the desired result.

Concentrating on resolving each small part of a big problem leads to a cumulative result. For example, walking along a trail strewn with rocks and boulders takes more concentration than jogging around a track.

When a problem is complex or difficult we need to pay attention to the details by concentrating little by little till the answer is known. It is this way whether for spiritual advancement through concentration and meditation, or scientific understanding.

The key to using concentration productively in all dimensions of living is to take one step at a time, digest, apply towards the next step, digest, and continue in this way.

In daily practical living, if you limit yourself to acting on impulse you won’t find the deeper answers that are waiting to be uncovered. All is here for us - it is up to each to search carefully, methodically, to find the answers.

Apply concentration to each area of living such as relationships, spiritual understanding, complex word problems, too. In this way you expand your ability to grasp more than you thought possible.

Concentration for spiritual progress

Concentration is part of the meditation process that develops a calm and one-pointed mind.

In the spiritual quest for enlightenment - for bliss - concentrate on developing the virtues that will keep your mind calm and your life in harmony. Being kind is one virtue that can keep you relaxed and feeling fine so that your ultimate spiritual goal is realized. Concentrate on kindness as you concentrate to solve problems and your life will be peaceful and useful - a living meditation.

Look upon a meadow throughout the seasons and see how each plant shows a more complex version the longer it grows. All the information for the final display is contained in the tiniest seed to begin, and with the application of time and nutrients the beautiful result comes about. In a similar way each problem we encounter, each event we wish to understand more thoroughly, reveals itself to us by our concentration on the process day by day or in increments.

Keeping a goal in mind throughout the learning process helps us stay motivated till we reach understanding, and when spirituality is the goal - till we experience bliss.
