We need to focus on our destination.  Let the thoughts arising in your mind pass by, like watching scenery through the window of a car. The thoughts cannot affect you if you don't allow them to capture your attention.
Spend each moment intensely focused on the spiritual goal of life. Take a pledge to put effort in this direction.
When karma (action) is performed with awareness and compassion as its driving force, it accelerates one’s spiritual journey.
Where there is concentration, there is harmony. Happiness is derived from concentration of the mind. Whatever we focus on we will become that.
We should live every moment with awareness.
An artist paints with focus; the painting becomes complete only through ekagrata (one-pointedness). Similarly, whatever is our goal, we need focus on that to make it complete.
Let us focus on what we can give to others—not on what we can get for ourselves. Only then can we bring about a total transformation in our global family.
How to attain concentration? There are no short cuts. Constant practice is needed. In the beginning, it is a great thing if by chance we get even one or two minutes of concentration in an hour. We should make continuous and sincere effort without stopping until we gain one pointed concentration.
