A focused life. Desired by many. Strived for by a few. Lived by even fewer.
The art of bringing awareness back to what and whom it is engaged with is the key practice for becoming good at being focused.
There is no shortcut to becoming good at focusing. Just hard work, relentless practice, endless repetition, an inextinguishable desire for mastery of this rare art and never giving up. Many will try. Most will fail primarily because of their inability to persevere.
Their inability to persevere is a result of their desire to live a focused life being not strong enough. They don’t want it badly enough. They fantasize about living a focused life. About being present in all their interactions with their loved ones and friends. About being present in their daily experiences. About living in the moment.
It’s an alluring concept for many. They can talk about it. Tell you all about it much better than I can. Convince you of the importance of it. But it’s a whole nother story to actually live it.
Your desire for living a focused life must be driven by a greater cause. A cause so great that you begin to take this practice seriously.
Personally, there are many driving factors for me to live a focused life. They are all important to me. But above all of them is the desire for Self-Realization. For this, I need a great degree of focus.
A great ability to harness my awareness and navigate it from the conscious mind, through the subconscious mind and into the superconscious mind.
Now, a lot of people say to me that the external world is very distracting. That is only because they have not begun to deeply experience the inner world. It is a countless number of times more distracting than the external world. And you need a great ability to concentrate if you are to navigate your awareness to the more refined areas of your superconscious mind.
There is no play pretend on the path to the superconscious mind. Focus is needed. It is mandatory. Without it, you can give up any hope of experiencing the depths of the superconscious and the Self that is beyond it.
