Increase your mental power


Our mental power increases when we develop concentration. A piece of paper will not burn simply by holding it up to the sun. However, when the rays of the sun converge in a convex lens, the intensity of heat at the focal point enables the paper to get alight. Similarly, when our mental energies are not channelled in a proper direction, they become dissipated very quickly and weaken the mind. A   wavering, unsteady and restless mind is prone to all types of hallucinations, phobias and complexes.

A wavering mind is a sick mind. When we fix the mind on an inner point, like the flame or a bindu, what we are actually trying to do is control the oscillations and fluctuations.

When the mind is free of distractions, the higher intuitive faculties are revealed and begin to guide the individual. Confidence increases, imaginary fears vanish and one is able to face the realities of life. This is yoga…. True strength lies in the mind. Only this strength will enable you to achieve something worthwhile in your life.

In order to attain mental strength and stability, keep aside 10 minutes for meditation every morning. Decide where to fix your mind. If you want to fix it on a candle flame, then just be aware of that and nothing else. When the mind is concentrated and one-pointed, even for a second, then one undergoes a wonderful experience.
