Where are you standing now? Are you at home? Outside ? Or in India ? Or somewhere else?
It’s a very simple question. Its answer can give you solution to all your questions.
This is a very interesting question
Actually you are there where your mind is. So if you are thinking you are at home you are not present here –your whole attention will be at home. You actually take your mind to your home.
Similarly, when you are supposed to be present in your class, your mind may have taken you to a picture hall and you will miss an important lecture.
So, we are there where our mind is and mind is there where our attention is. Some people’s attention is always in recreation and they live a life of “eat, drink and make merry.” style. Some people’s mind is always full of good thoughts and they live a life striving for perfection.
This is a very powerful gift. Wherever I draw my attention, my mind goes there. But unfortunately we fail to control our mind and we live in a divided state. That’s why our whole body becomes segregated or divided in small parts.
This will create such a chaos that after 3 years you will find one third of people walking like lunatics in our streets. This is due to the radiation effect and ignorance and stress.
That’s why we need to meditate to get focused and to be present in the present moment. Then we can give instruction to our mind to be focused and to do “ONE WORK AT A TIME”. If we can do this then we can achieve excellence.
How many of you can honestly say that while studying for 1 or 2 hours at home your mind was wholly present in your books and even for a second it didn’t waver. So you have to concentrate more. To get good result you have to control your mind so that it can follow your direction
But mind is governed by intellect and where does your intellect lie? Your intellect lies where your thought lies. Your thought determines whether decision taken is right or wrong?
You are a bundle of thoughts “AS YOU THINK SO YOU WILL BE”. So to improve your intellect you should improve your thoughts. “The intellect is the vessel that holds the knowledge of God”. It is different from the mind. I wish you to excel in your exam, in your life. You have to have a vision and a focused mind and a burning desire to achieve your goal.
