Concentration – Week 17
The gameshow Concentration was a favorite from the 50’s into the 70’s. Game show contestants had to remember where matching pieces of a puzzle were in order to gain points. It took focus, concentration, and recall.
Concentration is defined as exclusive attention to one object; close mental application.
We live in a distracted world – have you seen drivers lately? If I see someone behind me while driving with their head down, I move into another lane or pay very close attention. I honked my horn the other day because a driver was coming up on me, head down, and probably would have rear ended me if I hadn’t figured out a way to get their attention. They were inches away from my bumper when I honked.
So Master Key spoke on concentration this week and during our Sit we were to be attentive to concentration. I was surprised to see immediate results. I was definitely more focused at work because I had better concentration. Amazing how that works – that upon which we think, manifests.
I can be what I will to be. As I continue to think and meditate on those characteristics I want to see in my life, I continue to see the changes I desire. Let me clarify that I am a Christian so my meditation time is also my prayer time. Actually, mostly my prayer time while also doing the exercise.
In fact, I had an item on my DMP with a due date of January 15th. As time came closer to the due date, I considered moving it out as I was not seeing any result. But during my prayer time, I was encouraged to wait. BAMB – when the 15th rolled around I saw my result and I had an unshakable confidence that it was absolutely accomplished. That has certainly invigorated me to concentrate on the dates I have listed in my DMP with greater faith.
I was very please with the results this week. I will continue to apply concentration because it made such a difference in my week. But then, I’ll continue to apply all the principles I can from this class because they work.
