Our mind is often very unfocussed, (distracted)
It is a kind of person who is called to have “ Vikshipt Chitta“ or monkey mind, they cant keep to one task, there mind will keep jumping from one to another, that’s the lower order Mind, and as one learns to channelize and focus better the mind is reigned in and focuses better, one is able to hold on to one idea and stay with it “Ekagrah chitta” one pointed mind, one sees a gradual rise in all parts of there life as they are able to hold on to there own.
If you want to experience this Ekagrah chitta, think of what bad has happened in a day, your mind will be able to stay on that point and create havoc in your life, hate / abuse/ sickness all will envelop you right away.
The alternate, think of something good that has happened in the day, if you are able to focus on that and stay with that, see how your day / night flowers, how happiness and joy follow, how your health actually gets even better.
FYI - from childhood we are taught to focus on the negative , in fact if there is nothing there to be miserable about our mind builds something out of thin air, ( intellect helps ) thus leading to our misery and sickness of body, feel compassion for oneself.
The choice is yours, always your choice, so what shall it be this year ?
